You know if you asked me to list some things that I don't like about myself, I could probably rattle off a whole list of things. It would be so easy for me to find the things that are wrong with me, most of them having to do with a physical flaw.
Lately I've realized that I definitely focus way too much on my flaws. Being constantly inundated with images of beautiful women all over the movie screens, magazines and social media, sometimes it is a challenge to see the beauty within yourself.
I also forget that physical beauty shouldn't take priority over the intrinsic qualities that make someone a beautiful human being.
Yes it is amazing to be told you're beautiful but at the end of the day the physical body changes and beauty fades. There has to be more to you than what is on the surface.
The purpose of this list/post is purely a way for me to acknowledge the things I love about myself and celebrate them. No more self deprecation. So here are the top reasons why I rock.
- funny and usually fun to be around.
- sensitive, which helps me to relate to and empathize with others.
- open minded
Ok, now it's your turn. If you have never created a list of your awesomeness you need to get on it. Even if it takes a few hours or even days, I encourage you write them down. In those moments when you feel unhappy or insecure pull out your list and look at all the things you have going foe you.
