Here's to Me

I am not full of myself. I am not a proud person, either. I know people who are full of themselves, and I am not like them.

However, there are certain things about myself that I do love.

The top ten things that I love about myself:

1. my dark, newly cut brown hair
2. my ability to tell a story
3. my dark brown eyes
4. the fact that I have never once cheated in school
5. my smile
6. my October birthday
7. the fact that I absolutely loathe talking on the phone
8. the fact that I can read an eight-hundred paged book in a day
9. my outlook on life
10. my awesome family

Do you have a list of ten things you love about yourself?

Want to share it with me?

Go ahead... and it will be featured here sometime this week!

Here's to me, and to you!

Great list, Tee Tee.
I don't know about mine. I guess I would have to think about it.
Have a fantastic week!

Lee said...

Hey, I can read 800 pages in a day too!
When I was reading the Twilight series, I read the first two books slowly up at camp. Finished them in a week.
But when I got home, I was craving the last two books.
So I bought both of them, and finished them both in one day.

I like this post. It's great to love yourself as opposed to being full of oneself. Two very different things indeed.

7. My enthusiasm whenever I begin obsessing over something
8. My brown and green eyes. I am so terribly proud of them.

Sarah :) said...

Here you go, honey bunch. I even made a whole post about it on my blog, check it out. :D

1) I love my sign language vocabulary. It's limited and not very good, but is always growing and improving, and I love it. The ability to communicate with those who cannot hear me is astounding.
2) I love the freckle in my right eye. It's large, and dark and I love it. I feel it makes me unique and special.
3) I love my cursive handwriting. When I take the time to write slowly and nicely, it looks astounding.
4) I love my obsession with comics. I love any sort of comic, online or otherwise. I could read books full of comic strips (not to be confused with comic books) for hours. Garfield, Dilbert, Zits, Calvin and Hobbes, XKCD, Explosm, Rooster Teeth... if it's drawn and in panel form, I love it.
5) I love my extensive medical knowledge. For a 16 year old girl who's never been to med school or taken anything other than 10th grade biology, I think I've got a pretty good understanding of the human body, how it works and how to heal it.
6) I love my rational-ness. For a woman, a teenager at that, I am very rational. I don't anger easily, I don't blow things out of proportion, I don't have crazy demands. When The Boy does something stupid, I don't blow up at him. I laugh and shrug it off. I'm pretty sure he loves it too.
7) I love my love for children. I adore kids, and they like me pretty well too. They're just so young, so innocent, so pure. I would much rather spend time with younger kids than ones my age.
8) I love my niceness--- usually. I am an overly nice person. Always. No matter what. I don't know why, but I just don't have it in myself to be mean, unless someone just really sets me off. Like, playing video games that you can either be a nice character or an evil one, I'm always the nice one. Always. I feel bad being mean to the virtual people. So, sometimes my niceness is a blessing, others a curse.
9) I love my photograpghy. I love taking pictures, and looking at pictures I've taken, and hanging my favorites on the wall... I love photography in general, really. But I love mine even more so, because it's something I do, and do right.
10) I love my ability to get to know people before judging them. I believe that everyone deserves at least one chance, no matter how they look, act, dress, smell or live. They deserve a chance.

kELLO! said...

I always say that if there were two of me in the world, we have SO MUCH FUN...

1. my sneeze. (it's dainty)
2. the fact that i THINK I'm the funniest person in the world. even when others tell me I'm clearly not.
3. my ability to make ANY situation awkward.
4. my golf drive. I'm no pro, but I can outdrive my 6'3" husband. and I like it.
5. that i STILL act like a child on Christmas morning. getting up at the crack of dawn, ripping open presents, playing with them all day long, etc.
6. I'm a really good neighbor. making them pies, sharing garden goods, chit-chatting, etc.
7. I think I'm pretty creative.
8. I can copy handwriting really well. comes in handy for scrapping.
9. that I always ask for a piggy back ride when I get tired of walking
10. my bangs. I cut them myself and they're not too shabby.

cute blog. and great idea to promote self enhancement!

8. That my eyes are big and blue with a little touch of hazel.
