Taking A Little Time For Me!

During my travels in the blogosphere I noticed a growing trend. Many bloggers are posting lists of things they like about themselves. Even more shocking to me is there are ALOT of things on this list. One of the favorite lists I have seen is over at Misty Laws Blog (<a/>http://mistyslaws.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/i-feel-pretty-oh-so-pretty/<a/&gt;). I decided after reading her list that I wanted to try this as well. However, I wanted to add my own little spin to it.

Not too long ago I went through a dark time. A friend of mine told me that a good idea to get through a dark time is to write down the awesome things you have done in your life. Acknowledge the people you have in your life that had a positive influence on you and embrace the good, bad and ugly parts of your life. I have compiled a top ten list of things that I can recall from my life that make it a little easier to accept the things that are far from making the list:

10) I struggled like hell but I made it through college and came out the other side with a Bachelor’s Degree. Was it worth it? Well THAT is another blog post…

9) I am 24 years old and I manage to live in my own place and own my own car…I am making some progress…

8) I have finally been able to sing in front of others instead of only singing to the steering wheel and shower head…does the audience appreciate this…welll…who asked them?

7) I have developed a cute little following for my blog. I started off with nobody reading my blog and now I can count on a few close blogging friends to read every post πŸ™‚

6) I have a solid job in the field I intend to stay in. In this economy this is something to truly cherish.

5) I have a small group of awesome friends that I never had before. For most of my life I was a loner but I have learned to make contacts with those I care about and not push them away- for those who know me THAT is an accomplishment.

4) I have started writing a novel that I am really passionate about. Lack of motivation aside I think if this ever gets completed it will really be a novel I can be proud of.

3) I am the proud Aunt of an adorable nephew whom I love more every day.

2) I am the Mommy of the best dog in the world- no one else opinion is needed on her- I am talking to YOU!

1) I have a little sister who has always and will always look up to me. She is my rock, my best friend, my world. She is the reason I strive every day to be the best that I can be.

Have you made a list like this? Let me know so I can check it out πŸ™‚

  1. Shae, this is just too weird that you posted this about making a lists of the things you like about yourself, because I have a post planned for next week, where I am doing something similar with my readers. So, please look for it πŸ™‚

    ” write down the awesome things you have done in your life. Acknowledge the people you have had a positive influence on and embrace the good, bad and ugly parts of your life.”

    Back in 2003, I too went through a very dark time in my life. Yet, it was at that time I realized that even though I was broke, without a job, and struggling financially, I had so much in my life to be grateful for. I truly believe that I needed to go through a dark time in my life, to see all the LIGHT that was already present in my life.

    I love your list! And brava to you for speaking up about what you LIKE about yourself. More people need to do that.

    You GO, girl!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thank you for sharing this with me Ron! It is always so nice to know we are not alone in our feelings. I cannot wait to read your post that is similar to this! Thanks for stopping by my friend πŸ™‚

  2. I haven’t been visiting my friends on WordPress for around six months, going through the posts in my inbox instead, due to lack of time. πŸ™‚ but this cute n awesome list finally dragged me down here πŸ˜‰ Way 2 go lady!

  3. Awesome list, a little perspective of ones own self can go a long way. Can’t say i’m totally over the moon at this point in my life, but I do have some things accomplished.

  4. Awwwwwww………..what a cool list!
    Isn’t it strange how ‘silver linings’ came come through simple perseverance. (okay……I SAY ‘simple’ but boy do I know it ain’t simple!)

    And I adore that you’re a big sister.
    That’s cuz I’m the youngest and I have one of ‘those’ sisters who means the UNIVERSE to me. I don’t think she’ll ever get how HUGE her presence is in my life……but I keep trying to help her get it!
    Big sisters ROCK the universe! πŸ™‚

    • Haha I love this! I am not sure my little sister would feel this way as she is 13 right now but I do hope she will always look up to me in some way (even if it is secretly :))
