We sometimes have difficulty seeing the good in ourselves. One of my teams challenge is to is Write about at least 5 things you really like about yourself and how they help define you as the unique and special person you are.
Okay my blog for one of my team this week is to Write about at least 5 things you really like about yourself and how they help define you as the unique and special person you are.. I think as women we are used to putting other first so it hard for us to name our Special quality but here go.
1. I'm loyal.
In my past, I trusted too easily and got burned {badly}. I believed almost too much in the goodness of people and wanted to believe everyone was good and trustworthy. I learned the hard way and some people would say I M STILL LEARNING THIS LESSON The people in my life now {who I trust in its entirety} I'm 100% committed and loyal to them. I would do anything, absolutely anything for the people I love in my life.
2. I’m compassionate, and I genuinely do care about others and want to be helpful.
3. I'm strong-willed.
Although I'm a very sensitive and emotional person SOME WOULD SAY TO MUCH SO , I'm incredibly strong-willed. I'm a fighter {not towards people, but towards life itself}. I can hold my own and I rarely back down when it comes to something I'm passionate about. I used to be much more opinionated, stubborn, and strong-headed, but as I've gotten older I've realized you can still be strong-willed without coming across as harsh OR AT LEAST I TRIED NOT TO SOME OFF AS B.
4. My ability to cope with situations in which I think most people would struggle to just pick themselves up and carry on SUCH AS MY SPEECH DEFECT OR DEALING with mom
5. . My ability to appreciate qualities in people. I always look for the good in people
A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head.
The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”
The operator, in a calm, soothing voice, says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “Okay, now what?”
A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.” The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married 35 years
This woman rushed to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off: “Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What’s WRONG with me, Doctor!?”
The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says: “Well, I can tell you that there ain’t nothing wrong with your eyesight….”
A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly. The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say: “That’s not it” and put it down again. This went on for some time, until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested. The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army. The soldier picked it up, smiled and said: “That’s it.”

    OMG that hunter joke is so funny. My cousin is a 911 operator, and I'm going to share it with her. I read it to my hubby, and he laughed too.

    Great list about your own qualities. As women, it can be tough sometimes to love ourselves enough to see good qualities. That's a great assignment from your team.
