Things I love about me…

Not so Little Woman tagged me in her latest post and after thinking about how nice it feels to be acknowledged and valued for the good stuff, I thought I’d give it a go. The original title was “I love my self because…” but I thought I don’t necessarily love myself ONLY because of these things, or if these things weren’t there it doesn’t mean I would not love myself, so I figured a better title would be “Things I love about myself” implying, I love these things, but they aren’t the end all be all.

… I am calm, cool and collected, and usually have lots of patience.
… I can be sweet and nice without being a pushover.
… I usually know what I want and how to get it.
… I have an amazing loving, supportive family, who is always there for me (I think people around really like and enjoy this about me, they benefit from it too).
… I am way stronger than I give myself credit for, but I know it.
… I believe and have faith in the impossible.
… I can always find the bright side of things.
… I love being alone but I am never lonely.
… I have a fine balance between being very rational and still in touch with my emotions.
… I know how to say no.
… I can love to the end of the world.
… I work hard at being giving and humble because they don’t come natural to me.
… It’s hard for me to forgive, but I still do it.
… I have incredible willpower and self discipline when I want to. 

I could actually think of an equally long list of things I dislike about me, but we’re keeping it positive here today. How about you? Have you thought about those things you love about yourself lately? Care to share?

  1. Focusing on the positives is a great thing to do!

  2. Keep it up! Sainthood isn't out of the question..

  3. Think if we ever met you and I would get on very well…I can identify with some of those qualities. You are pretty much my inspiration when I get a bit down about dating because I think, Jen carried on, she did it…

  4. Sizzle – Yep, it truly helps in the being happy department. Buffalodick – Oh please, I am eons away from being a saint, plus I don't think that would be my goal anyway, there's too much fun to be had ;)The Sarjent – Ah 🙂 thanks. Hang in there with the dating bit, you'll see, you'll find him at the end, that's for sure.
