I Must Confess…yes, I am still totally awesome!
And here we are again. It’s Monday and instead of complaining about today marking the start of the working week, let’s have some fun and share why we are indeed all so very awesome!
Before we get onto the business of confessing, I wanted to return to my revelation of last week, where I shared that I am a bit of a Lizzie Bennet Diaries fangirl. I now know that I am TOTALLY a fangirl as I have been obsessed with the latest episode for days now (the one where Lizzie and Darcy get together – squee!) AND I am going to take part in my first ever Kickstarter campaign to get their DVD and new series off the ground. It must be love if I’m prepared to part with money to further their future work!
Anyway, I wanted to bring some positivity to the blog today as I’ve been feeling a little flat lately. What better way to make us all feel a little more positive than for us to concentrate on our own positives and confess why we are all so very awesome?
I have written a post on my awesomeness before, coincidentally in a similar time of stress and strain. At the moment I am feeling pummelled by the demands of work, smothered by the strain of making decisions about the house build, stressed out by the anxieties of my kids and just plain overwhelmed by the current pace of my life.
So, at times like these, when I start to question my decisions and double guess my motives, it definitely helps to stop the negative self-talk by remembering all the things I am actually good at. To appreciate that I am actually awesome (even if only in my own mind!)
Here goes – I hope this same process can help you all out as well!
I am awesome…because I am resilient. I have been thrown some curve balls over the years but I keep bouncing back. I am determined that nothing will beat me and I will never give up on anything. I am stubborn like that…
I am awesome…because I am always looking forward. I try not to dwell on the negatives, preferring to concentrate on the positives. I believe that life has to get better and that you cannot lose hope. If you don’t have hope, what do you have?
I am awesome…because I have a good heart. I’m a big softy and I find it hard to be mean or rude to anyone. I believe that people are innately good and treating others with respect has never steered me wrong yet. The one Christian tenet that I fully embrace is “do unto others what you would have done unto you”. I truly live my life by this motto. It has definitely made me a better person.
Now you know how truly awesome I am, I would love to know why YOU are awesome. Or, if you are not quite comfortable enough to put yourself out there, I would love to hear a big juicy confession instead. No pressure or anything!
