Errrr, Ummmm... HmmmI saw this group a couple of days ago & It set me to thinking - could I come up with five things that I like about myself? All in all the task seems as though it ought to be easy, but it isn't.
I don't mind myself. Of course I wish I were smarter, stronger, better, & et cetera. The usual really. But there's nothing that leads to any true dislike of self. Too, I have no major issues with the aesthetic. However to use one of the list to say "I like my hair" seems rather empty all things considered. Because while I do in fact like my hair I am not the packaging that is my body, or the trimmings. It is here merely to carry the actual *I* from A to B.
So, after a wee look-see, this is what I came up with...
Wit. Without it what would I be? Just a mush, probably... Ah, sweet sarcasm, the heroin of the mind.
Next to come to the forefront was the feeling of completeness I have as I write... There's nothing like it, when a piece is coming together in a way that seems unto itself... serenity.
That was it, I was already stumped.
I then thought it best to let my subconscious do its thing, & went on about my evening.
Later while brushing my teeth another came to me - My capacity for love. Sure, I'm not the most open person. Few have any true insight into the real me. But I am not afraid to show affection, & if I express emotion it is the absolute truth. I am not one to say things I don't mean.
Yesterday after speaking to my brother, Pandora, & friends here on Ep I thought of how I tend to attract the interesting & unusual into my life. Odd, funny, quirky things happen to me. & boring, or "beige people" as I call them are inclined to give me a wide birth... Yay to that! :)
& finally... Today I went to visit my convalescent friend, Noel. We had tea, & cake, & a long conversation. En route home point number five arrived... Adaptability - My closest friends are all very different from each other. They feed distinct aspects of my personality. I can be a different person with each of them, but still never compromise myself.
So, that's it, I'm done. It's taken me forty-eight hours but I managed to rustle up five things that I like about myself. :)
