Fifty! Say It Like Sally O'Malley.

I got the nudge from her who got it from her.

Fifty Things I Like About Myself

1. We'll get the physical out of the way- I like that I have green eyes and that they are big and expressive
2. I have a winning personality
3. I think I am just as important as any one else in this whole world- no matter their "status"

4. I have no problem telling a "celeb" to "scootch a little" so that I can reach the paper towels in the bathroom
5. And I have no problem then later asking to take a photo with her
6. I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe, even if it's not the popular thing
7. I believe what I believe with a purpose and with reason
8. I don't believe in things just because others do
9. I don't do things because someone else expects it of me
10. I do most everything because it's what I expect of myself
11. I can relate to others even if they are completely opposite of me
12. I can see the child in most everyone
13. I can also see right through most everyone
14. I can easily let things go
15. and the things I can't let go I usually do something about
16. I love that I love to write
17. I love that I can get lost in a book
18. I love that I can get lost just looking out the window
19. or looking into my child's eyes
20. or at their faces while they sleep
21. I think anything is possible
22. I think many people are misunderstood
23. I think it is perfectly ok for others to disagree with me and do things differently
24. I think it would be quite boring if we were all the same
25. I am optimistic
26. I am not easily disappointed
27. I know my way around the city
28. I feel at home in the mountains
29. I know what good music is
30. I don't tolerate bad music
31. I question man-made rules, but still offer respect
32. I have seen God work in my life in supernatural ways
33. I am a Daddy's girl
34. I like the same music as him, and I love that
35. the hippie in me comes from him
36. and I love that I know that
37. I like to see others happy
38. I get that from my Mom
39. and my stellar shopping skillz
40. I have more shoes than I can count and I don't feel guilty
41. I wear bracelets and earrings and lipstick and paint my toenails
42. yet I still feel simple in a good way
43. I am very grateful for so many people in my life
44. And for so many blessings
45. And for so many opportunities I've been given
46. I only laugh when I want to, not because people want me to
And I usually laugh at many things others don't think is funny, probably inappropriate
48. I think there could be white unicorns still out there somewhere
49. and that inanimate objects have feelings and animals may talk when we're not around
50. And that's ok. Because I just get it.

And I love that.

  13. Truly spectacular list! I have been mulling the thought "I have to love myself first, before I can love others" or "Love thy neighbor as thyself" same thing, but this is a great example of self love, and it isn't as common among us women folk. . . great post

  14. Great list!
