friday five: that's what I like!

At RevGails Singing Owl writes: Lately I seem to be encountering many people who have a very difficult time finding anything good to say about themselves. They are able to extend grace and forgiveness's to others but find it difficult to extend that same grace to themselves.

With that in mind, let's share some healthy affirmation today! Tell us five things you like about yourself!

1) I like that I am more like my mother than not. She is a woman of integrity, strength, compassion, insight, thoughtfulness, hospitality and generosity, to name but a few of her attributes. I am blessed to be her daughter and to know her confidence in me.

2) I like that I love animals. It offers me an opportunity to exercise my maternal instincts.

3) I like that I appreciate the heritage of my gene pool and value the tangible gifts, like Melrose, that are the fruits of my family.

4) I like that I am passionate about creating. This passion is most expansive when creating for others in my life. Win-win!

5) I like that I am a good listener. Hearing another's story connects me to them in places of commonality, and expands the world I come to know and understand through the experiences and perspectives of others. It makes every day interesting and meaningful.

It is sad that we do seem to be able to find so many wonderful things about others, but few about ourselves. Love your list... and YOU!
