I am a first-born child, which should mean many things about me. In the area of compliance I am supposed to be nuturing, reliable, and cooperative, along with traits under aggression, which include being a natural leader, assertive, and a perfectionist. But a few traits are supposed to be common to both types of first-born personalities. I should be energetic, ambitious, and enterprising.
It's tough to analyze myself and to decide how close I am to fitting into this list. I know I can take perfectionist off the list. No doubt there. I am fine being less than perfect in many areas, and can even leave things partly done. Dishes, laundry, unanswered messages, etc. However, of the other 8 things listed I may be pretty close to the mark.
Some of the things that sound strictly positive have gotten me into hot water. Being a nurturing person can come at a price when it is unwanted on the other side. And ambition? Don't even get me started there.
My birthday was yesterday. I was reflective. I took an hour-long walk with my headphones on nice and tight as I listened to music and thought a bit about my life. I think birthdays are a good time for this. And then I came home, showered, and was off to make my fortune, like any other first-born.
Remember my musical recording for the week is in the sidebar. Ecoutez bien.
