What I Like about Myself ( a

Monday, February 03, 2014

In our BTS challenge, one of the options for last weekend's challenge was to write a blog about what we like about ourselves. I thought this was a laugh - if I liked myself, would I be fat? If I liked myself, would I be on Spark?
But many of the people in the BTS are fighting depression, SAD, or just plain out-of-sorts. One of my co-workers tried to commit suicide last week. Winter is getting to all of us and this winter has been especially hard so far. Plus, perhaps we are not losing weight like we would wish to, or we are so close to that goal and just can't quite meet it. Whatever is the problem, we need to do something nice. So the more I thought about it, the more this idea of liking my best attributes seemed like a good thing. So here goes:

1. my bluer than blue eyes - they change with the weather - really!

2. my fingers that can play piano and make a living at it, too!

3. my ability to research - I work at it like a bulldog and never give up until I find the answer!

4. my willingness to take on any job, no matter how difficult (except closets!)

5. my loyalty to family and friends

6. my love for my grandkids

7. my weightloss so far - I am happy with what I've done and want to continue to work hard to lose more

I think all of us should try this "exercise" - it's a lot easier than planks!

    I'll do your closets - you do some research. I don't mind researching things, I just get too side tracked.

I haven't made my blog yet, and I need to do it, challenge or not!

    You're right we should all take the time to do this exercise. It's uplifting and encouraging to look at yourself in a positive light after feeling down for so long.
You are an amazing woman and I'm thankful to be sharing this voyage with you. I'm glad you are feeling a bit brighter this week and I'm continuing to pray for you after the difficult times this Winter has brought to you and people you care about.

    Why did you stop? I am pretty sure, that you would fill pages and pages of things that you like about yourself.

Oh, I know! We are trying little changes, one at a time. And writing about ourselves takes practice. Is like working out: we start walking slowly for about 10 minutes and in the long run maybe we will be able to run a marathon.

    I think that planks would be easier! Though this is probably more beneficial.

You have some really great traits and abilities! I'm glad that you acknowledged them and wrote them up. Fantastic job!
