It contained some good stuff, but it also contained things like bitch, irresponsible, and snobby.
As a comparison, I asked my friends and family to use words to describe me in a post on Facebook and I got a flush of responses.
All beautiful, poignant words that I would LOVE to describe myself as.
Words like white cloud, adventurous, strong, loving, gentle, kind, and empowered. For the whole list, see below:
- White Cloud
- Loves to explore new things
- Great self-esteem
- Damn fine burner
- Accepting of others
What I learned from this exercise is that no one is harder on me than I am on myself. And perhaps, just maybe, I’m actually much closer to being the person who I want to be than I think.
I’ve always wanted to be brave, and strong, and adventurous. And it appears that I am more like that than I previously thought.
And who doesn’t want to be described as breathtaking, alluring, enchanting, and gorgeous?
So take a minute before you criticize yourself and think of all the wonderful qualities that you possess.
Then maybe, like me, you can pause for a moment in your self-criticism and feel immensely, totally, in awe with yourself.
