32 Things I Love About Myself

In a few weeks, I'll be turning 33. Something about this upcoming birthday has been weighing on me. I'm not sure if it's the number itself, which I think is an ugly number (odd, I know!), or because that's awfully close to putting me in my mid-thirties but I'm not exactly excited about this birthday. Which is bizarre because I LOVE MY BIRTHDAY. So much so that I chose to be induced so that I wouldn't have to share my birthday with Connor. Sad but oh so true.

However, I don't want to start a new year with a negative mindset so I thought I would take the time to reflect on myself as a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and friend and find the good I see in myself. Seeing the good in something has often allowed me push away the negative feeling I have about a situation (turning 33).

  1. I am always on time.
  2. I have the best sense of humor. I often think I'm absolutely hilarious. 
  3. I can express myself well through written word.
  4. I'm a really good gift giver. 
  5. Cleaning is my JAM. No one loves cleaning the way I do.
  6. I don't mind ruffling feathers if it means I'm standing up for myself or a loved one. 
  7. I'm a really good listener.  
  8. I'm a bit obsessive but it's worked well for me thus far so...
  9. Thanks to good skin coloring, no color looks "bad" on me.
  10. My love of reading has taught me so much.
  11. I'm a dedicated worker. 
  12. My ability to rock the "homeless" look without caring. #momlife
  13. My dislike for board games bothers others but not me. Not one bit. 
  14. I am not artistic. Nor do I want to be. 
  15. My multi-tasking skills are pretty stellar. 
  16. I have rhythm. 
  17. My faith in God is very personal for me. I'm blessed because of him. Point. Blank. 
  18. I'll never lose my sense of independence. 
  19. I stand up for what I believe in. 
  20. I'm a giver. I love giving.
  21. My obsession with Christmas is solely based on my Christmas tree.
  22. My lips. 
  23. I'll try anything at least once. As long as I don't have to digest it. I'm far too picky for that. 
  24. That I enjoy my own company. 
  25. That friends always come to me for advice. 
  26. I'm obsessed with all things Jersey yet I've never been there. 
  27. I love planning parties, dinners and get togethers. 
  28. I go from zero to 60 when I get excited about something. 
  29. Pizza is the one thing I would never give up. Carbs, cheese and me... for life. 
  30. It's hard for me to be serious. 
  31. I'm an open book.  
  32. I am confident enough in myself to be able to write an entire post about what I love about myself. Talk about bold.
From shallow to deep, I think there are always things you love about yourself. I think it's good to have a healthy amount of self-love. So friends, are you brave enough to share what you LOVE about yourself in the comment section below? Silly, serious, deep or totally vain, open up and share a bit with me.
