What I Love About Myself

I was comfortable saying what I love about me and I wasn’t bragging.

Thrive invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform.

More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

Recently I participated in a Real Prosperity workshop with Dorothy Spence through the Purpose Led Business School.

She had us speak for 30 seconds on these two questions

What I love about myself …

What I love about my life …

and end with the phrase “What I love about myself is everything”

DO try this at home! Look at yourself in the mirror. Set a timer if you like. GO!

Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock

Welcome back!  (seriously, it’s 30 seconds, try it)

I had no trouble with 30 seconds and could have spoken longer. I was comfortable saying what I love about me and I wasn’t bragging. I shared my truth, my inner knowing, with the people in the room. What I love about myself and my life includes family, connection, silence, compassion, kindness, generosity, authenticity, learning, healing, helping people, and living in alignment with my highest values.

I’m not saying I’m perfect or that I never suffer. The end game in life isn’t perfection or sainthood. It is acknowledging the profound complexity and tenderness of human life. It is acceptance and appreciation and love for myself as a human being who is doing her best. That’s enough for me.

Oh yeah, I also love walking on the beautiful beaches here in Nova Scotia.
