Spooky Spiders - Week 4 Blog - 5 things I like about ME

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

My Aspire to Inspire BSG challenge this week is to write a blog about five things I like about me. Wow is this ever a challenging topic. I think most of us tend to think more about the things we dislike about ourselves.

But, here goes my list of things I LIKE about ME:

1. Compassionate. The definition of compassion is “a deep awareness of and sympathy for another's suffering”. While I am not sure I have always been compassionate, after my son died in an accident while skiing just before he turned 16, I truly learned what it meant to be compassionate and I find that I truly care about the trials and struggles that others find themselves going through.
2. Easy to Get Along With. I am easy to get along with. I really dislike conflict so I go out of my way to avoid it at all costs. As a result I feel that I am easy to get along with and get along with most people. Several years ago I worked weekends caring for seniors and disabled persons. One job I took was for a lady who had MS and who I was told was very hard to get along with. Well, she and I got along quite well
3. Smile/Happy Attitude. I like my smile. My husband is always telling me what a great smile I have and most people I know classify me as having a happy attitude
4. Motivator. I always try to find something nice to say to someone, especially someone who is struggling. I have really found how much I like the BSG challenge interaction part of the challenge. I find that when I am searching for motivation for others that I am also motivating myself so it is a win-win situation.
5. Determined. I am determined. I am one of those people who don’t give up easily. You know, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. I am one of those Progress not Perfection people. I slip and slide and take detours on occasion but I do not tend to give up.

    Yep, that's pretty much how I would describe you too! emoticon emoticon You did a great job on your blog! I would have to agree with CJ though, that you have many other qualities that are great about you that could describe you.

    Barbie: I think maybe "thoughtful" is on that think of others!
I also think you have an inquisitiveness for life, an eagerness to explore.
Love getting to know you!

    Well my friend, I add my endorsement to everyone else's comments that these are indeed some of your wonderful qualities. They shine through in your encouragement and partnership along this journey. But I had to put in the word "some" because the more I know you the more I am discovering that you are just brim full of enthusiasm for life and all it brings your way. I'm so thankful you are willing to share yourself so openly with us. emoticon emoticon
