BLC22 - Day 54 ~ Love Letter

Sunday, July 28, 2013

Part of this weekend's challenge is to write myself a love letter. I am to list everything that I emoticon about myself. And why not? We're always focusing on the features or things we dislike about ourselves, so why not give ourselves a boost by focusing on the positive for once! emoticon

First and foremost in my life right now, I am a mother. I help my children whenever possible. Whether it's a situation with friendships, difficulty with homework, teaching life skills (house cleaning, common sense, etc.), respect for others and their selves, and of course punishments for those things that are uncalled for (hitting/fighting with sister.)

I volunteer with children when I can. Through church or Girl Scouts I connect with kids and enjoy helping and guiding them and most times they enjoy the connection they have with me.

I am a wife who does her best to keep a clean and organized home. Although not where I would like it to be on most days, I feel I do the best I can with all of the obstacles thrown my way (especially here of late!)

I am a trustworthy person and a loyal friend. I do not tolerate lying and therefore that is definitely not one of my traits.

I am very responsible when it comes to finances. I do our family's bills and this keeps me in check when I go shopping, since I know what we have to spend, what bills need to be paid down, etc.

I'm a decent, loving and dedicated person who sometimes gets down on herself too much.
Focusing on the positives can help me pull myself out of the doldrums and get back to the work that needs to be done on myself. Remembering this the next time I am down can be a tool in getting me back on track and I hope to use this in the future.

    Great blog...excellent assessment of the wonderful person you are!!

    It is indeed hard..our society pushes women to be "less" ..they say it is not that way..

    however reality is..women who are leaders are seen as "bossy"..& it goes on.

    no wonder we tend to mask our bright lites & not let them shine!

    You put forth some great things about yourself..keep that positive flowing!!

    Great letter, full of positives, it is funny how we find it hard to be kind to ourselves, I wonder why, because we are kind to everyone else. A hard letter to write emoticon
