Challenge Exercise

Saturday, February 01, 2014

As part of a weekend challenge I am blogging a list of personal positive attributes. This is very hard to do because it seems so self-promoting and that just isn't my "thing" but I want to participate fully with my team so bear with me.

1) I'm loyal. I stand by my friends and family through thick and thin. If they stumble or disappoint I remember that "I" have done the same and people have stood by me.

2) I have a strong work ethic. I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves and work hard. Any job (no matter how menial) is worth doing well.

3) I'm willing to try new things. Some of my greatest "finds" in life have been because someone suggested something new.

4) I'm generous. I'm willing to share of my time and resources with others because people have been generous to me.

5) I'm supportive and encouraging to those around me.

6) I'm patient. I realize that some things take time and many tries. I try to be as patient with others as I wish them to be with me.

7) I'm very glad this exercise is over.

We can now return to our regular programming.

    A great blog! Yes, sometimes it's hard to "promote" ourselves, but it's also great to take stock of our wonderful characteristics. emoticon

    How funny that it is easier to find our flaws rather than our attributes. Thanks for the wonderful insights and showing me how to be more positive to myself.

  That is indeed a very tough thing to do. I'm not sure I could do it. Good for you!

    You may have found it hard to write this as a blog but believe me I for one am glad you did. I always find it very hard to label good things about myself. You have made a pretty good list for me! I appreciate it!

    Love your list, and even though I am only a "virtual" friend I would say you have compiled a very true list without a single iota of self promotion!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!

    Suzanne,

I know all to well how hard it is to talk about yourself. I, for one, don't want to draw attention to myself, and besides, as long as God knows these things, along with the people who you show these attributes to, why should anything be said? That's how I look at me.

You did a FANTASTIC job, for the situation you were in, as I felt like you were actually on the outside looking in on somebody, giving your critique. You're AMAZING!!!

Be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -

  This sounds more like an affirmation of your self worth, not a self promotion!!!! You are full of amazing qualities and an inspiration to others working hard to achieve their own personal goals (myself included)!!! emoticon

    I don't think of it as self promoting. You are acknowledging all the good aspects of yourself. Yay! We are so quick to criticize ourselves. I believe that more we can look at the good in ourselves (and others) the more we will see. The more we look for things to criticize of ourselves (and others) the more of that we will see. Which do you want to see more of?
