Day 54 of 365:
Toot Your Horn
Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.
I like this topic because I feel like it’s easier to point out your flaws and put yourself down than it is to boast about the good parts we all have. Think about it – what is the hardest question to answer in a job interview? The question about your greatest strengths. We are so humble by nature.
Well, I say there is nothing wrong with a little self-pride and self-love and letting the world know.
For instance, I like that I am….huh.
The thing I like most about myself is…..ummmmm
I really like the fact that I ….
ugh. This is hard. :S
You know what I like about myself? I like that I am creative. I like that I can make things with my hands. I like that I can express myself in a meaningful way by writing stories and taking photographs. I like that I can look at a blank page and instantly visualize the colours, shapes and details I will put onto it. I like that I can see something and instantly know how to frame it in and from what angle to shoot it with my camera. I like that my creations make me unique.
That is what I like about me.
A-toot-tootin’ my own horn….
(This was actually kinda hard to write, on a personal level. Tell me, do you find it difficult to talk about your favourite personal strengths and qualities?)
