Class, what do you like about yourself?
Me (hand going up and waving frantically): I'll go first!
And I will.
Things I Like About Myself:
-- I am so entranced by my pretty painted toes that I take off my shoes or stare at my feet at least three times daily. And not just today. I do this week after week, as I am a habitual toe-painter.
-- I make the bed nine out of every ten mornings.
-- I dare to love celebrities.
-- I feel guilty when I don't recycle.
-- I don't want to die before I get old. (many people do.)
-- I feed the people I love.
-- I got married young.
-- I read trash and quality.
-- my passion for medieval history.
-- I like hanging out with my family. Including K's family.
-- my deep suspicion of labor-saving and life-improving devices. Such as BlackBerries, Treons, Ipods, and the like. Although, as always, I love my dishwasher.
-- that I don't really care if my husband takes me out for dinner. 40 bucks on dinner and a movie is not a necessary monthly obligation. (And it's a good thing, mr. thrifty-pants).
--the ways I keep surprising myself.
At the risk of being selfish and self-congragulatory, it's a good thing to be nice to yourself. Kiss your knees. Have a mango and a cup of tea. You're probably a nice person.
