Since I’ve been having a rough patch, I thought I’d take a page out of my friend Sonya’s book and hack my self-love with a list. So here’s a list of things I like or love about myself.
I love, first and foremost, that I’m a word-weaver. I love how words come together for me like a magical power I’ve had since I was a child.
I love my chubby cheeks and the hidden dimple in my right cheekbone that only comes out when I offer the biggest smile I can muster.
I love my hair, whatever state it’s in.
I love that I’m a fast-learner. This has allowed me to learn a lot of mini-skills such as tarot, basic web coding, a little ukulele, and a good amount of graphic design.
I love how people approach me for problems, advice, and confessions. I pride myself on being a really good listener.
I love how I can adopt a person’s mannerisms to relate to them and make them comfortable around me.
I love that I read people really well, which helps me make sound judgments without making my mind up about a person completely. I can see a person’s flaws but still appreciate what I do like about them.
I love that I don’t need a lot of make-up before I like how I look.
I love the color of my skin.
I love my legs.
I love my long, full nails. I love my tiny wrists and slender hands.
I love that I can paint and am proud of my paintings.
I love that I have a lot of creative ideas for projects.
And the list goes on.
