I found this pin on Pinterest and it made want to write again. It is a list of 25 questions about self-developement and acceptance, which is exactly what I need right now to move on and get back on track. Since I have not posted in more than a year I think today is about time! The first question, which I will answer today is:
What are five things you love about yourself?
1: I’m honest! This has always been my number one quality. I don’t lie to people. And I hate when others lie to me. I sometime dodge questions or tell people, that I am not willing share information with them, but I am not one to just tell a lie.
2: I’m authentic! Usually I’m not busy or caught up being a certain way simply because most are like that. When it comes to expectations though I tilt both ways. The way people pursue my character and abilities mean a lot to me and I do give in to expectations a little too often. I do what I like, not in a rebel way, but in a self-aware way. I never do something only because others tell me so. If I follow their advise or their orders it is because I see the reason or trust them to bring me closer to a result that I want.

3: I care! When I become friends with someone or take on a project I deeply care that it turns out good and that I put my fair share of effort in to making it as succesful as possible. I’m not one to do things halfheartedly. I’d rather turn down a project or friendship offer too much, than to only do it halfway with a disappointing result. People around me mean a lot to me and my wellbeing. I want then be happy and I want to help them, to be happy. However I only offer this help, when I actually feel like I am in a spot where I provide what they need to feel better.
4: I’m creative! I get told this a lot. Even though I think I they often mean artistic, I still think there’s a truth to it. I make up unique projects or give projects a unique twist when working on them. I find new or untraditional solutions to problems when I meet them. I find gifts for people, which have never seen their wish lists, but are still loved and appreciated.
5: I’m curious! This is a human thing I know, but maybe it is more about how I express it. I ask more questions than most the people I know. This is because I want to understand, I want to know and I want to explore the subjects and the people I have before me. Conversations with people are most interesting when asking good questions. Most people are extroverts and they like to talk about themselves. And the introverts usually like to talk too when they get to talk about a subject that is important to them. Curiosity is not only about conversation though. It is about gaining information from all possible sources like reading, observing, analyzing, testing and experimenting. I like to do either of these things and when I do it is a sign that I am feeling good.
This was my answer to the question: “What are five things you love about yourself?”
