Reflectin' on Me

Today's theme is to post a self-portrait and list 5 things you like about yourself.

This is kinda tough for me.  I'm not too big on me ... like to the point where sometimes I have self esteem / self confidence issues.  So ... 5 things ... man ... I can't even complain about this topic because I picked it.  Durn.

Well ... first I'm going to start with the self-portrait.  I could totally cop out here considering that little button ... yeah that is totally a self-portrait already :-).  Or I could do something totally awesome and artistic that I think makes me look super cool.  But I think I'm going to try this whole being true to myself thing, and I'm going to give you all a real self-portrait.  Leah was playing with my camera and took lots of pictures of me ... so here's me --

(in no particular order)

--I like that I walk with my face up.  Ok, I know that sounds funny, but let me explain.  When I walk around the building at work or anywhere I am always looking up; never down at my feet or staring at the ground, but with my eyes up so I can see other people.  I like meeting someone's eye and smiling and hopefully making them smile as well!

--I like that I am not a "typical" girl...not saying that there really is a 'typical' girl, but I'm kinda weird in that way.  I love sports!  love them!  I love to watch them, I love to play them, I love to talk about them, I love to coach/ref them, I love sports!  and it's fun because sometimes it surprises people, and that's always fun!

--I like that I am musically talented.  I really like being able to read music and play the piano.

--I like that I am compassionate.  I want to help everybody, and sometimes that becomes overwhelming or saddening (especially when I'm not in a situation where I can help), but the compassion is always there.  I like that I will volunteer for pretty much anything if it is going to help someone in some way.

--I like that I am goofy and can make people laugh.  I like to enjoy life with a big smile, and I am not afraid to play with the kids and hoop and holler like a crazy kid!



  1. I really, really like this. I'm off to go do one of my own!

  2. Oh, how I wish I had some musical gift!

    Your first point is priceless. Love it!

  3. I like you too, Christy! And this was a great exercise! I don't like tooting my own horn either but it was good to acknowledge that I have some pretty excellent qualities!

  4. Cute idea! I am too late this week b/c I just found you through PINT. I will link up next week! Love the self portrait :) I used to play piano a long time ago. See ya next week!

  5. I like that we are almost the same person! (except for the head up thing, I'm still working on that one...) This is gonna be so much fun; I'm glad your readers are playing along!!
