50 things I love about me!

Could you do it? Could you write a list of 50 things you love about yourself? I didn't think I could the first time I was asked to, but once I got started - it was easy!

Have you noticed how you find it really easy to pick faults with yourself and put yourself down, but when it comes to bigging yourself up, that's when the difficulties start.

So think about it for a moment, then grab a pad and start writing. Can't think of anything, remember they can be anything, it might even be something others don't like about you, but you like yourself.

I've lost the original list I wrote then first time I was asked to do it, but I did find this one I wrote a good few years ago (around 2009ish). I found writing it very fulfilling and reading it back today made me smile and see how I've changed somewhat, but I'm still very much the same me!

1. Everything - according to my mom I'm wonderful and she's never wrong
2. I have lovely teeth & a fantastic smile - that's 2 things by the way!
3. I always try to see the positive
4. I motivate people
5. I'm grateful for my life
6. I have a quick tongue!
7. I never take anything for granted
8. I'm kind
9. I love my terrible memory because then I don't remember the bad stuff
10. I also love that I have a weight problem because it means I have a real passion for food and drink and I'm happy when I fit in my clothes

52. I appreciate life & everything it has to offer
53. I like that I fit in my skinny jeans ;-) mmm that was a few years ago, now I like the fact it doesn’t bother me that I can't!
54. I'm a good listener, although I may not remember what I've been told afterwards!
55. Most of all I love that I never give up on things that are important to me, such as my own happiness.
