I saw this cute idea over at a cup of subtle tea and decided this is something I need to think about and post.
I call myself a realist, but it's really filled with a lot of negativity, and that carries over into my thinking, behaviors, and of course, the way I view myself.
The cup is usually half empty for me.
So today I decided to try really hard to come up with positive aspects of myself that I tend to tuck away deep inside somewhere. Although I love them, I am quite uncomfortable with compliments. I also have problems depicting myself favorably.
Here I go.
I feel beautiful when:
:: eric looks at me a certain way. he doesn't even have to speak sometimes.
:: when eric tells me that i am.
:: getting all dressed up for a nite out.
:: putting on that new outfit that fits and looks just the way you wanted.
:: making a difference for my patients in the hospital.
:: helping a stranger.
:: rescuing dogs.
:: wearing new makeup and having someone notice.
:: mastering that amazing new hair style.
:: rocking that perfect karaoke song.
:: the way i feel after a good, long walk.
:: hearing, 'you look great.'
:: my wedding day in jamaica.
:: wearing glitter & shimmer.
:: dutch & harris.
