Challenge of the Month

Challenge of the Month Recap: Self-Praise List

This challenge ended up being about as tough as I thought it was going to be. Some days I just couldn’t think of something that wasn’t already on the list. Some days when I was in a lousy mood, I had trouble coming up with anything and started doubting certain things on my list. Other days I had no problem adding to the list because I was feeling good about myself.

I think the biggest thing I learned is that at the end of the day, I’m always me. Even if I’m feeling lousy because of something I said or did, it doesn’t make any of the good things about be any less. I’m human. And a pretty good one at that.

With no further ado, here’s my list of 31 awesome things about myself:

  1. I have beautiful blue eyes.
  2. I am dependable.
  3. I am organized.
