Hmmmmmm......this post is one of the hardest for me, we have been asked to list 10 things we love about ourselves for todays challenge. Don't get me wrong I don't not like myself but I don't find complementing myself easy. I would love to be one of those people that is very confident, loves the way they look and can accept a compliment for what it is but thats just not me..at all! As I have got older I am more excepting of the way I look but I definitely still have lots of hang ups which when I am much older I know will be laughable. Sometimes I think a good counselling session wouldn't go a miss but learning to love yourself is a journey and we get there when we get there I guess : )
If you met me you would probably think I am confident but thats a trick I have had to learn for work, I meet lots of new people that are nervous about their new fitness journey and meeting me so I have to be confident to put them at ease. If you met me when I am with a group of friends again I would seem confident because I feel safe but take me out of those situations I am actually quite shy.
It took me some time to decide 10 things I really love about me as I don't want to sound like I'm bigging myself up but then this saying came to mind.....
"If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else" - RuPaul
(gotta love RuPaul!)
With that in mind here are the 10 things I love about me...
1. My Eyes
2. My Determination
3. My Physical and Emotional Strength
3. My Smile
4. My Toned Legs!
5. My Tattoos
6. My Own Company
7. Being A Good Friend and Girlfriend
8. Being A Good Personal Trainer
9. Not Taking Myself Too Seriously
10. Being Individual
As hard as it may be for some of us to really say and think about the things we love about ourselves its a good idea to do it. As women we are always comparing ourselves to others are we pretty enough, thin enough, clever enough etc so sometimes its good to remember we are all individual and no one is like me or you and for that we should love ourselves! So thank you Bailey this post was a great idea and I'm glad you included it in the challenge : )
Tell me at least 5 things you love about yourself....go!
