30 Days of Truth – Something I Love About Myself

Posted by on October 27, 2010

Okay…this is really hard. Much harder, in fact, than picking something you hate about yourself.

Do I pick something superficial like, say, my hair? Because I do like my hair a lot.

Or do I pick something practical like my independence? Because I do like the fact that I’m very independent and self-sufficient and clever. You could take away everything I have and I’d find a way to survive and get back on my feet.

Or do I pick something run-of-the-mill like the fact that I’m steadfast and loyal and dependable? Because I am. You can count on me—I got your back. When you really need me, I’ll be there for you.

Love is such a strong word…I don’t throw it around a lot so it’s hard for me to say I LOVE any of the above about myself but I like those things well enough and for me, that’s about as good as it gets.

It’s been forever since I’ve done a meme.

To be honest (heh) I think I *may* have even gone through a phase after my first year of blogging where I thought I was too cool for a meme, that they were for newbies and people who were unable to come up with their own content.

Well, I stand corrected. I’m SO not a newbie ;p

This meme, 30 Days of Truth, for whatever reason, really makes me want to play along—something about giving yourself permission to be completely honest is very compelling.

So…I may not do every one on the list but I’m going to try.

The 30 days are listed below should you want to be uncool along with me :)

Day 01 Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11  Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12  Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13  A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
