Who says we can’t admire ourselves once in a while? Today I wanted to continue the self-love trend and write 10 things that I love about myself. I also thought this was a fun way for you guys to get inside my head! It’s so easy to think about all of our downfalls and features we don’t like about ourselves. Building up our self-esteem starts with how we view ourselves.
I’m a Fantastic Cook
I can’t think of anyone who will tell you otherwise. I’ve always been that person who was glued to the food network station but never had the kitchen to try anything out. Since moving I’ve been able to explore many new recipes, ingredients, and cuisines in the kitchen. All of which have had raving reviews! This past Sunday I put together a special Valentine’s dinner for my boyfriend and I. Take a look at the menu below!
I’ve Always Had My Mom’s Toned Body
This has always been such a pro for me especially since I enjoy stuffing my face till I usually get a food coma. Do you ever wonder how Rory and Lorelai can eat so crazy but still retain their great shapes? Not to mention, I lost the baby weight quite fast. I am blessed in that way. Thanks, mom!
Need Someone to Make You Laugh? I’m Your Girl
C’mon. Y’all had to know that I had some type of sense of humor? If it doesn’t come across that way then I am doing a horrible job. No, but seriously, I think I’m hilarious sometimes! We all need some humor in our lives. I can’t imagine being so serious all the time. It’s also pretty easy to make me laugh as well.
My Eyes and Smile Can Be Mesmerizing (So I’m Told)
In previous posts, I’ve mentioned some of my physical insecurities that I’ve had all my life. 2 features I’ve always been proud of were my eyes and my smile. Both easy to read but can also trick you in a heartbeat. I think I’ve learned to master the smize the older I get.
(Smize – a playful or alluring expression of the eyes)
Sometimes I think I’m a little too compassionate but that’s just the way I am. I am a naturally caring person. I think about others before myself. Seeing other people genuinely happy brings me joy. Besides that, I think it’s important to continue to try and see hope/faith in humanity. I’m also a firm believer in Karma!
But Don’t Get It Twisted (I Can Hold My Own)
I think my compassion can come off as too nice and that’s where I can get taken advantage of, sometimes. I’ve always been able to speak my mind or defend myself in situations. But, I’ve realized as I get older I’m able to take a step back and realize that I can actually avoid these situations. People are who they are and they’ll show you that. You just have to pay attention.
I Can Get Ready in 30 Minutes or Less
I knew I could get ready fast but this weekend I proved to myself that anything is possible. I had 30 minutes to get ready for our Valentine’s dinner and I made it happen. Before getting ready, I had 1 hour to hit the mall and find an outfit. Done. Then I had 30 minutes to get ready so we can leave in time for our reservation. In that time I washed my hair, showered, styled my hair, did my makeup, put in contacts, and changed my nose ring. Talk about speed and efficiency!?
I Have a ‘Go Get It’ Attitude
When I want something, I’ll do whatever it takes to get it. If I have an idea in my head I have to put it on paper immediately. I want and need for my visions to come true. I’ve always been that way. I think it’s a nice quality to have. I’ve learned the hard way that things don’t come easy for everyone. Me especially.
Hello… I’m a Taurus!
I’m not much of an astrological person but I do know a bit about my sign, which is Taurus! I love everything we embody. Yes, we can be lazy and procrastinate the shit out of everything but we go hard when we have to. We ride for our people and still find time to grab a drink, have fun, and live life. Hello, I’m a Taurus!
I’m Extremely Afraid of Heights Yet I’ll Still Find Myself on Kingda Ka
I’m scared of so many things. Like the dark or bugs. One of my biggest fears is heights but you wouldn’t know that because I’m the first one in line at Six Flags. I push boundaries in the name of fun. I’m quite adventurous actually… just as long as I don’t have to encounter any soul killing bugs.
