Five Things

Monday, October 07, 2013

I saw on a blog post (this one, in fact:
) and wanted to join in:

"Write down five (yes, five) physical traits you like about your body"

But I want to add something else too:

"Write down five (yes, five) NON-physical traits you like about yourself"

At first thought, both are a bit daunting. But let's go!

"Write down five (yes, five) physical traits you like about your body"

1. My hair (which always gets compliments for being so thick)
2. My eyes (I have green eyes, which look especially pretty when I wear olive green)
3. My fingers (which are long and lean, even when I was heavier)
4. The curve of my waist (I have a waist!)
5. My wrists (which look rather slim and pretty)

See? That wasn't so bad!

"Write down five (yes, five) NON-physical traits you like about yourself"

1. I'm smart.
2. I'm financially secure.
3. I run.
4. I love to read.
5. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I'm friendly and upbeat. People call me "Sunshine", even if they've just met me.

Wow, that one I could have gone longer with!

What Five Things do YOU like about yourself, physical and non-physical?

    I hate my wrists and I have short, chubby fingers, lol! My whole hand can fit in just the palm part of my husband's hand, lol :) In fact, I gauge my weight by my wrists in addition to other body parts!
