Self Reflections Tuesday -- Self Potrait

Welcome to the first weekly Self Reflections Tuesday

Let me introduce the awesomeness that is Self Reflections Tuesday --

Christy from Just Thinkin' and Lisa from The Sarcastic Lab Rat came up with a new idea to help boost brain power and decrease blogger's block.  Every week we will all meet together here and expand our brain and our friendships though a writing prompt.

Starting next week we will feature our favorite post from the week before ... but since this is week one ... I'll use this section to give you are overview of why this writing prompt is different from all the others --

  • All of our prompts are original ideas from us.  One week they could be super deep, and the next week it could be super silly.  I like how Lisa says it -- "The best part is that we are each picking topics, so you might get something deep and thoughtful one week, and something totally bizarre the next!"

  • The 'Self Reflection' title comes from the fact that this is a meme to focus on YOU!  We all love reading about our kids, our dogs, our cats, our bunnies, our spouses, etc ... but here is a place for you to reflect on YOU and your thoughts.  and who knows, maybe you will learn something new about yourself :-)

  • Lisa and I promise to read and comment on every - single - link-up.  Then the week after we will feature our favorites from the week before.  Who knows ... maybe it could be you!

  • Plus ... we are awesome.  Enough said!

  • Today's Theme: Introduce yourself!  Show us a self-portrait and list 5 things you like about yourself.  And we are looking for things you really like ... not just 'I like that I'm a mommy'.

    Next Week's Theme (8/23): If you were given one superpower for only 24 hours, what would your power be and how would you use it?  Give us examples of your new found skills ...  it doesn't matter if you are saving the world or the kitty cat in the tree.

    So ... what are you waiting for?  Find / draw / scribble a self-portrait ... gush over your awesomness and link up down below!

    Oh yeah ... and grab a button too!

    1. This might solve my dilemma about how to get real with my blog. Thanks for the idea. I will try to come back next week to participate.

      Thanks for your comments on my blog today. I appreciate it.


    2. Thanks for doing this! And thank you for your comment. I had a really hard time coming up with the five things I liked about myself. You are right it is eaiser to talk about another verses yourself. Look forward to next week!
