Challenged. Things I LOVE about ME.

I like lists. Lists keep me sane. I am actually very happy going through life “flying by the seat of my pants” yet I still love lists. I make them about everything. Carry them around for years. Lists are my form in chaos. Lists are my light in the dark of night.

I don’t like me (all the time). Sometimes I am okay with me. Some days I feel good about myself. 2011 has been a year of discovery for me. A year of new discoveries, buried thoughts, and uncharted territories.

For all the reasons that C.Mom talks about here, I am challenged to complete this list. But I think it is something I need. Maybe everyone needs to do. As difficult as it seems, I am going to take a shot at the hardest list I have ever written. I hope it is a discovery of monumental proportions. I hope I believe it at the end of the next bad day. I hope it is true.

  • I was  am a great mom. Not just good. But truly great. The greatest mom I could be.
  • I am fun to be around. Not always funny, but sometimes witty and always sarcastic.
  • “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” is something I truly believe in and practice. Simple but true.

  • I am comfortable mentally in my body (although not physically)
