In an attempt to change the voices in my head, I will now try to talk about something I love about me. It's such a tricky thing to do, because I don't want to sound conceited. I would imagine that's one of the main reasons I haven't done it. So, without practice, it is seeming very difficult. It's been proven that people benefit from expressing gratitude like in a gratitude journal, so I have to believe that expressing love for myself, should benefit me too :)
Ok, so I do love my eyes. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for that gift. I don't even really know what color they are...I call them hazel, but there's really no brown in them, and I think the official definition of hazel includes brown. They can look blue, and they can look green. I feel somewhat unique being a dark-haired woman with lighter eyes. They have served me well, since I haven't had glasses yet. That doesn't mean that I don't need them...but I've functioned fine without the help of glasses, and I hope to continue that way for a while longer!
Ok, phew....that was kinda tough. Thanks to my friends who pointed out some things to get me started...I am certainly content with my eyes :)
Oh, how I wish I had some profound way to wrap this up. My Day 22 of this 'challenge' found me anxiously awaiting the return of my husband from a 10 day business trip. And then it found me sitting on the couch all night, cuddling up and watching TV with him. We ate lasagna for dinner, and popcorn for a snack. I loved on my husband, and I loved on my kids. That was a pretty darn good day!
