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

  10. My ability to be there for others even when I am hurting.
  11. I am a compassionate person
  12. I am not vulgar

  17. I am intelligence
  18. I am a very supportive friend

  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. 💕

  3. I love this post. So often we’re our own worst critics, and it’s encouraging to write down the positives. I’d love to add something like this to my students’ end of the year memory books.
