day 2 of 30 days of truth

Day 02 →? Something you love about yourself.

It's strange how yesterday's prompt made me feel so different from todays. I'm totally one of those girls that feels like if I compliment myself or admit I have good qualities then I must be conceited. Which of course is totally silly, we all have to have at least one good quality!!!! I think this will be one of the main things I try to work on this year- trying to realize that I can love myself and be able to name my good attributes and not come off as conceited.

So now that I've prolonged the prompt, I'd have to say that one thing I do love about myself is my willingness to help others. In the past (and sometimes present) this has caused me to get walked on. We all know that feeling and how much it sucks, but as I've grown up I've just tried to make sure I'm putting the effort into the right people. By that, I mean I want to help everyone, but I will only go out of my way for people that I don't think will take advantage. As long as I feel secure on that, I will seriously do anything someone needs me to (within reason and my limits of course).

don't forget to come back to check out the other 28 prompts!!!

I'm doing this too, and so far it's a lot of fun. I feel the same way though, I have trouble complimenting myself because I feel like it will make me sound conceited. It creates huge problems during interviews, which are all about selling yourself. :(

I admit that this is probably the hardest thing for me to do is find something about myself that I love too. I'll be thinking about it and getting my post up later on.

Also, I have gone through a spiritual gifts class at church and my strongest gift is HELPS. I like to help, but would rather do it behind the scenes and not necessarily get a lot of recognition for it. My second strongest gift is giving. I think these both kind of go along with what you wrote.

KaylaDanielle said...

I totally agree on this one! I wanted to join in on this challenge so much but work is getting in the way :(
But yes, if I were to answer this one, it would be pretty much the same as yours :)

suzy said...

i'm the same way. it irks my husband because i feel like putting myself down is ok but it's not ok to pat myself on the back now and then. and i guess he likes me and thinks i'm good so he wants me to feel the same way.
maybe i should take this 30 day challenge thing...
