Another chance to see one of my favourite posts!
If you read the list of attributes for the average Taurean, most of them are highly desirable, and my family would agree that I do have most of them. I am practical, generous, patient and loving. Most people like me, but if they were honest, they would admit that my intense stubbornness can sometimes be a bit of a problem. I have yet to come across anyone who can make me change my mind… I can’t do it, even when it’s for the best!
My sister Anita hates the fact that I always have to be right, moving heaven and earth to achieve this. Most of the time I am right, but will go to extraordinary lengths to make things fit. Once made up, my mind is unchangeable, even by me!
I have more heads than Worzel Gummidge and will have a go at most things. If I like the look of something , I will have a go too. Doesn’t matter what it is either, I learned to upholster furniture that way, and found I had a talent for making those wire and gemstone bonsai trees that were all the rage once upon a time.
I love a challenge and is one of the reasons I became a writer. Although, I did imagine in the beginning that I would write beautifully romantic, magical stories. How I have come to enjoy writing psychological thrillers is a mystery. Maybe there is a darker side to me that I didn’t know about!
Somewhere inside me is an artistic streak, desperately trying to get out and be recognised, and although I have created some lovely things in my time, sheer perfection still eludes me.
I have a weird sense of humour, an infectious laugh and a legendary bad temper. The passing of time has rounded off the edges a little however, as I have managed to learn a little patience.
The down side of being a Taurean is not so desirable however, and I have to own up to possessing some of these traits too.
I can be unadventurous, secretive, frugal, possessive, opinionated and overly sentimental. Boring and lazy I would argue with, but I dislike chaos and unnecessary risks. I tend to avoid bossy people, and I am supposed to be good at making money.
Not much sign of that yet…
