60 things I love about myself

Posted by

This year, I decided not to write new year’s resolution but to work on the ones I was unable to do last year and the year before and the year before that. I also decided to do a theme this year and it’s going to be Self Love, so I  am looking at ways I am going to love and care for myself more and I thought I should start by listing things I love about myself.

Half the time I think about things I don’t like about myself, so it wasn’t easy to come up with things I love about myself. I started by listing things that people compliment me about and worked my way up from there and things just started coming to my mind and I realised that there a lot of things I love about myself, so here is the list:

  1. My faith in God (I am a Christian and I am proud of it)
  2. I am sensitive – I am not afraid to show my emotions or vulnerability
  3. I am a good, loyal and reliable friend
  4. I am a faithful, honesty and trustworthy partner in a love relationship
  5. My big brown eyes
  6. My smile
  7. My lips
  8. I have a forgiving heart

  1. Hello Dee – beautiful list. I love my persevering, resilient spirit and having God as my co-pilot. I have a question for you – do you believe that it is our responsibility to take these gifts, these beautiful things we love about ourselves and share them with the world? To use them – to be of benefit to all beings? I do. I’m working on that. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Hey Madeline, that’s beautiful that you’ve made God co-pilot, I think it’s even better when you let Him be THE pilot, life makes more sense. Oh yes I do believe that it is our responsibility to share with others these great gifts that we have because a lot of people do not realise how much they have within themselves. Like I wrote in the first paragraph of this post that it was difficult for me to come up with things I love about myself because I focused more on what I didn’t like about myself and a lot of people are in that position, that’s why I thought of sharing this. It’s really important to not only focus on the negative. I am glad you liked the post. Thanks for making time to read it. 💕
