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 --
--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!
