A part of who I am....

Most women and probably men have so much that they dislike about themselves physically that we forget to say "hey, I love this about me and I love the fact it makes me part of who I am". Which is sooo true.

I can tell you 50,243,243 things I hate, dislike and am not happy with about myself, but there is only a few things I can truly say positive about my physical appearance that I love about me. Really, when is the last time you heard a woman ramble about the fact that she has nice shiny hair or that she thinks her lipstick makes her smile look even better. Hardly at all. We only hear negative and mostly state negative things about ourselves, but yet we are quick to give others compliments. Well, heck, isn't it time to think about yourself and give yourself a compliment?

I've been chewing on this awhile, but then in last month's Marie Claire I noticed they had a section about this very thing in their Beauty Road Show segment. "what I love about me". I loved it and and thought it was a wonderful showcase for women to actually give them selves praise for something positive they see in them selves.

My favorite thing about me? my eyes. Even thought the doctor told me they are "buggy" I think she was wrong, I think they are beautiful and can hold far more emotion than my words ever could. (and it's quite known to my family that they can donate everything when I die except my eyes...strange, but true, I always said that I want to be able to see in heaven)

So, once again if I knew how to do Mr. Linky -thingy I would...

What do you love about you (physically)?

Hmmmmm, as I read your blog and I am forced to think of good things about me. I am digging this post (considering mine is all about complaining). What do I love about me??? My smile..........

You have great eyes. I love my eyes, too, and mine are quite buggy- it's true, but they're big and unique and I think show my spirit. Another thing I love (stop me if this is too weird) but I love when I am wearing a sleeveless shirt and I turn my head and rest my chin on my shoulder/upper arm. It's soft and I don't know- I just like that little part right there!

How nice of you to ask us to share-

I've always loved my eyes. I thought about eye modeling when I was younger, I knew I was to short for modeling 5'2 -5'3 doesn't cut it in the modeling buisness. Anyway the other thing I always liked was my hair, it's natural blonde color. People never can believe it when they ask what color I use and I tell them it's God given blonde you can't buy this.
