I get it that it isn't cool to brag on yourself or be too self-centered but today? Today I'm going to do it anyway. And I want you to do it too.
Post in your own LJ and give me five things (or two things or twenty things) that you love about yourself. Things about YOU.
I love that people can count on me. If I say I'll do something, I will. Always. No matter how much it stresses me.
I love that I'm close to my family and can wrap myself up in their love anytime I want.
I love my passion for the things that are uniquely me: Starbucks, my Blackberry, cherries, Converse, my dogs, reading, my sugar addiction, power reading gossip magazines, my CRV, living in a place that has sidewalks, hot boys, roller derby, baby elephants...
I love that I always, always can impress parents and adult authority figures. (My mom says this is because I have MANNERS.)
I love that I have tiny wrists and super blue eyes.
I love that I live by my routines and schedules and I don't bend them to accommodate other people's priorities.
I love that nothing makes me smile more than Jared-with-a-lion-cub.
I love that I like all different kinds of music from all different kinds of people. Any genre, any style, anything.
I love that people have a hard time saying "no" to me.
I love that my favorite holiday of them all is my own birthday.
I love that I can memorize things easily.
I love that people like to talk to me and that I like to listen. Conversely, I love that occasionally other people will listen to me talk too.
I love that I have strong morals and values and I don't feel any compunction about being true to them.
I love that even though I can appreciate a good buzz, I definitely do not have to drink to have a good time.
I love that I say prayers every night before I go to bed and that I clearly can see God in nature.
I love that I love to wake up early in the morning.
To be honest, I'm planning to keep adding to this list as I think of other things today. It's important to remember, you know?
OK, your turn. DO IT.
