What I Like About… ME!

Today I’m linking up with Elena from C.Mom. She has come up with an incredible meme and that asks us all to list what we love about ourselves.

This isn’t as easy as you might think.

The first few came quickly but then I hit a wall. Why is it so hard to appreciate what we have, who we are, the gifts we have been given that are right in front of our face?

Because it’s easier to focus on the negative.

It’s easier to wave off a compliment and replace it with a self depreciating insult. It’s easier to look in the mirror and find 5 things we’d like to change than to applaud the things that we’re proud of. It’s more socially acceptable to gab with our girlfriends about our flaws rather than talk up our brilliance.

Not today.

Today I celebrate me!

Today I love myself.

– I love my sense of humour, I’m grateful that I can laugh at most situations and don’t take too many things seriously. I don’t surround myself in drama and I find it childish.

– I like my hair

– I like my dead front tooth because it reminds me of the time my brother hit me in the face with a baseball, it’s part of my life, my story (even if little children do ask me why my front tooth is dirty).

– I am grateful for my sense of intuition, which is rarely wrong.

– I love my brain. I’m intelligent and am proud of what I’ve accomplished.

– I’m thankful for my dedication, had I not been dedicated I would have never achieved my goals.

– I love my blog, what I write, and my followers. I’m extremely proud of what I have created on my site.

– I’m thankful for my budgeting skills, not being in debt, and the ability to control how much I spend.

– And the most important thing I have ever done, what I am most proud of; my daughter. I created her, grew her in my belly, and produced a miracle.

    What a great list. And I think you are right, its really easy to focus on the negative. That’s why I started my blog and stopped doing a journal. With a blog it is so much easier be positive and funny and not get to caught up in the negative.

      I had a journal for years and years but with a blog its nice to connect with people and to know you aren’t alone.

    Intuition is perhaps one of our greatest, most ignored gifts. I have a pretty sharp sense, and it drives my husband crazy. Especially when I can’t avoid saying I told you so.

    Grateful for your sense of humor too. I know far too many people that take life too seriously. Plus, I need people to come read my bull.

    Do you have a followers box? Trying to figure out how to become a follower but can’t.
