I’ve seen a couple of people doing this and thought I would give it a go.
For the next 30 days I’ll try to do a short post daily following the challenge. The prompts for each day are below.
Day 1: List 10 things that you love about yourself.
Ok this one may be a real challenge. Stumped at that, changing it to like and seeing if I have any more luck.
1) I like that I have compassion. I care deeply for others, humans and animals.
2) I like my hair the day after it has been washed.
3) I like that I can create things, wine, knitted things, rugs etc
4) I like that I try to share my skills.
5) I like that I try my hand at new things.
6) I like that sometimes I don’t give a fuck what others think.
7) I like the connection I have with the land sometimes.
8) I like the enthusiasm I have sometimes (that may be a repeat of #5).
9) I like that I have an eclectic taste in music.
10) I like that I can cook for people.
Fuck that was really really hard. Guess I really do need to work on my self-esteem. I think the only ones of those that I could stretch to loving about me would be #7. Well on that depressing note I’m going to go back to writing a discussion for a chapter.
