How About You?

Sarah Von of Yes and Yes (you may recall her blog from my Show & Tell posts) has a very honest and inspiring post today and I thought it would be a great idea to share here as well.

Her post is called “All The Ways That We Are Adorable” and was brought on by a discussion on the Every Buddy boards about going out in public without makeup.  One commenter posted that she was lucky enough to have long dark lashes that didn’t require mascara, but then wrote Why is it so hard to say nice things about yourself? Especially physically? *sigh*”

Sarah decided that it’s time to say nice things about ourselves and posted five great things.  I added to her comments and I think we all could use a little boost .

So I want to know – what do you love about yourself?  What makes you different and makes you stand out?

My answer was:

  • I am small and thin
  • I have blue eyes that change colour depending on my mood (blue, green, gray)
  • I have a crazy, high-pitched laugh but my voice sounds really good when I sing.

and I want to add

  • I love my ski jump nose
  • I love how I look in a bikini now
  • and I love that my hair is getting longer!

Can’t wait to read your responses!

    *Thank you for blogging this I actually found it kinda sad how hard it is to list things you love about yourself. I asked a few of my friends and everyone is always so stumped. It seems easy to list things we love about others its about time we list things we love about ourselves! Hope you are doing well you probably don’t remember me I met you a long time ago im close friends with kyle. My last name was colucci. Anyways thanks again! Give kyle a hug for me!

    • I do remember you and thank you for sharing 🙂 I was so inspired reading Sarah Von’s post I had to share it on my blog as well. I will definitely hug Kyle 🙂

  • 1) I like how I am an hourglass figure
    2) I like mt long dark brown hair
    3) I love my voice.. I have a tiny tiny lisp and it actually sounds nice when I sing, somehow
    4) I like my smile and white teeth
    5) I love my personality, too.

    I love my personality, it allows me to make friends anywhere I go.
    I love where I am in my life now with a great partner and children we made together.
    I love my scence of humour, its a great feeling to make people laugh doing something so easy.
    I love the connections I have made in life with people I never thought I could meet and cherish them.

    • I think it’s great that one of your points is that you love where you are in life with your partner and children. Made me smile.
