65 Things I love About Myself

Remember waaaaaaay back in February when I posted I was participating in Gala Darling‘s Radical Self Love List of 100 Things I Love About Myself?  And then in March I admitted I only had 45 things on my Love List so I was extending the project through the end of March?

Yeah, I forgot all about it, too.

But I was cleaning up my desk and came across my notebook where I kept my list, and since I am a lady of my word, here is my list, albeit a month later than promised. I didn’t quite make it to 100, but 65 is a good start.

Maybe someday I’ll get there.

I hope this inspires you to make your own list! We are often too tough on ourselves and some small, simple affirmations can go a long way for our self esteem. <3

  9. I am a good cat mommy.
  10. Once I set my mind on something, I see it through.  I hate giving up.
  11. I know how to take care of myself.  That may sound silly but I’ve found not a lot of women can function independently.

  13. I somehow lucked out with the world’s greatest cat.

  17. I have really great taste in television programs.
  18. I appreciate grammar and punctuation (although I realize I am far from perfect).

  32. I am not ashamed of my life-long glitter obsession.
  33. I am not afraid to reinvent myself if I have to (note this is different from changing myself).
  34. I don’t know a lot about cars but I know enough to keep myself from getting completely ripped off at repair shops.
  35. Same goes for mortgages and home purchasing.
  36. I’ve never been one to get swept up with trends.  I like what I like.
  37. I’m pretty flexible (I’m referring to yoga).

  52. I am not one of those girls that take forever to get ready in the morning.
  53. I love NASCAR and I don’t care what anyone says about that.

  55. I don’t have a lower back tattoo, or any tattoos I regret for that matter (but I really want to get one, someday).
  56. I have never been involved in a really bad car accident. I consider myself a safe driver.
