Melissa at Operation Nice gave us an assignment to make a Love List containing all the things we love about ourselves. So here goes...
I love that I can sing. Family campfires, singing with the radio, or actually performing - it's all great and I love that I can do it. I love that I can get up in front of a group of people and present something. I'm not usually nervous either, as long as I know what I'm talking about. I love my middle name - Eliza. I used to hate it when I was little, and I have no idea why. It's so pretty. I love that I tan easily. I still wear lots of sunscreen, and I'm pretty pale year-round now that I live in New England, but when I do venture out into the sun, I end up with some nice color. I love that I am very focused on keeping in touch with my friends and family - I can always do better, but I think I'm a pretty good friend and sister and daughter. I also love that I'm a good mom. There was a time when I couldn't imagine having kids, and now I can't imagine not being a mom. It is all coming so naturally to me. I love my body - it's not perfect, but it's perfectly me. I can (and do!) eat ice cream every day, and I'm still pretty petite. And I'm strong enough to carry my son, my laptop case, two lunch bags, a nap sack, and my purse - all while locking the front door!
I'm sure I could come up with more if I spent more time on this, but I think it has served its purpose. I am now happier than ever to be me!
What are the things you love about being you?
