Yesterday's challenge took me WAY out of my comfort zone. It was a simple thing. Really, it was. Post of picture of yourself with the words "I am enough". Problem for me was I don't take pictures of myself. I was so embarrassed by this that I almost didn't do it. Almost. I did it because I believe it's important. I had Monster take the picture (I was too embarrassed to even have husband take the picture). Then I did something that broke me out of my comfort zone even more. I posted the picture to no only Facebook, but I also posted it on Instagram. Know what? I didn't die of embarrassment.
Today's challenge is to tell one thing that I love about myself. Here it is...I love that I look for the good in things. Sometimes stuff sucks. Sometimes I get super down. Sometimes I think all I'll ever do is fail. Yet, I can always find something good. We don't have the money to go to Disney, but, we have a great time as a family just being together. Our house is crazy small, but it takes me a less time to clean. My kids are sometimes crazy and grouchy, but they are healthy enough to be crazy and grouchy. Some days are much, much more difficult to find the good stuff, but there is always something, even if it was only that the first sip of my morning's coffee was delicious. Today, I was vacuuming my bedroom. If you didn't know that the carpet was cream, you'd think we had a grey shag rug, there was that much dog hair. After I was done vacuuming, I was all happy and excited. The carpet was cream colored again. That was the good that came out of hauling the vacuum upstairs, having it fall over onto my back while I was using the hose attachment, and spending 15 minutes doing something that usually only takes 5 minutes...that clean carpet. It's all about perspective and I try my hardest to find the good. To find the positive. To find the joy. I am far from perky. I am usually sarcastic. I have many, many faults. But, I'm good at finding the good.
