Remember that 52 week challenge I started back in January 2016? Well I obviously failed! OOPS! Like I said in New Seasons There are still 3 months left in the year. I guess it’s a new year now so 12 months! It’s scary how fast time moves. Anyway, I want to hop back into it. Seriously this time!
This week (10) was “Five Things You Like About You.” My challenge with this topic isn’t about writing about myself. The challenge comes from trying to compliment myself without coming across as a conceited person. Hopefully my humbleness will be present in my tone. I wouldn’t want you to take my confidence as arrogance. But seriously, how can this post not sound a little conceited?
Let’s see. What do I like about myself? Personality wise or physical? Let’s start with personality.
I’d like to think I’m a funny person. I mean people laugh when I crack jokes. What if they’re actually laughing at me? Oh well. At least they’re laughing. I talked about how much I love to make people laugh in my 5 Things That Make Me Happy post. I think the ability to make other people laugh is a good quality to have.
I think I was born a nurturing person. It could be how I was raised or it could be my natural temperament. Babies and children always gravitate to me. I love kids though. My original career I was going after was nursing and I wanted to work in a nursery or on a Labor and Delivery unit. I got the chance to intern at a hospital and fell in love with the babies. Even when they cry, they’re so precious to me. I think kids can sense that in me and they always want to play when they’re around me. It’s not just a baby/child thing either. People come up to me and just talk. They tell me their stories and troubles. When someone is down I’m usually the one to bring them back up.
I like how driven I am. I see something and I work towards it. I have goals and I envision things a certain way. I try to do at least one productive thing a day. If I do more then hey. Go Kelsey! But at least one is my minimum. And that goes for anything as far as writing a blog post, reading a how-to business guide, or tackling a project. There’s always little things you can do to work towards your goals.
I have my mom’s eyes. I just like how big they are and the shape of them. A thin line of eyeliner on the lower lid really emphasizes the shape of my eyes and I noticed that’s when I get the most compliments.
The other physical trait I like on me is my smile. I think I have a nice smile and I always get complimented on it. Slap a smile on my face with some eyeliner on my eyes and the guys melt. Haha just kidding!! Kinda…
I guess it’s nice to look at yourself as a whole and compliment what you like. I know personally I tend to be my worse critic so being able to appreciate myself is a nice distraction. I challenge you to do the same. Look at yourself in the mirror and think about all the things that make you, you. What is it that you love about yourself? And if you happen to write a blog post about it, I’d love to read it!!
