There are some characteristics we are drawn to more than others; certainly more we are attracted to. Do we often see them in ourselves? Do we value them? If we do, is it because others do, too?
I am old-fashioned. In all areas of my life. I believe in good, core values. Here goes ~ three things I love about myself.
1. I have a strong, dedicated take-ownership work ethic. If I say I'm going to do it - I will communicate what, how, where and when. And by gosh, I'll die trying. MY WORD MEANS SOMETHING.
2. I am a dedicated, loyal friend to the end. I will help, I will listen, I will coach, I will cry. I have 7 friends that I have had for over+40 - 30 years each. Life friends. We have weathered bad boyfriends, weddings, being a godparent, divorces, breast cancer, parental deaths. We all still love each other. A FRIEND FOR LIFE.
3. I am comfortable in my own skin. I eat at nice restaurants alone. I travel alone. I live alone. I go to the symphony alone. I am my best friend. I look to myself for strength, encouragement, discipline and fun! It's not how old you are ..... but how you are old. If I don't like something I can change it, because it's all up to me. I ENJOY ME.
Well, that wasn't as hard as I thought!
