I Don’t Mean to Brag, but…

It’s Day 2 of my 30-day Loving Kindness Challenge and today’s affirmation is:

Today I recognize the many good qualities I have.

When I told my husband, he said that I have so many that one couldn’t possibly scroll far down enough to see the whole list. All right, go ahead: roll your eyes. It’s OK. I’ll wait.

It’s very sweet of him to say that and I hope he honestly does feel that way. I have a feeling that he really does.

It was a very busy day for me so I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about my good qualities, except while driving to and from work. I find that I do some of my best thinking in the car. And in the shower. Neither of these is well-suited to making notes as the thoughts come to you.

But because I said I was going to write a post with every affirmation, I’m going to do my best to come up with a few right now.

  1. I’m a generous person, both with my time and my money.
  2. I’m loyal.
  3. I learn things pretty quickly and usually complete tasks ahead of schedule.
  4. I’m a good cook although certainly not an expert in the kitchen. At work I’m famous for my homemade salsa — my salsa gift basket has been known to cause bidding wars in the office benefit raffle.
  5. I have an eye for composing shots despite not being a technically-savvy photographer.
  6. I’m easy going and get along well with almost everybody.

It’s harder to come up with good physical qualities, but I guess that’s part of the whole idea, so here’s what I came up with:

  1. I have pretty hands: long, thin fingers with small wrists.
  2. I have lots of thick hair; while not the easiest to style and every day the streaks of gray become more prominent, I’ve got lots of it.
  3. I lost forty pounds last year and I have managed to stay within five pounds or less of that for a year now and I have a “normal” BMI.
  4. i like my neck. Not really sure why.

So while you probably didn’t have to scroll that much to read this list, I was able to come up with ten good qualities. Not too bad.

Have you made your list yet? What are your good qualities?
