I really love the selfie movement (as annoying as they can be at times, ha ha) because I admire girls who have the confidence to post close up pictures of themselves. I am my worst critic and have a hard time liking and posting a picture of myself, but I don't want that to stop me from taking pictures with my favorite little girl and posting them by the millions on Instagram :) So today I'm sharing 10 things (inspired by my girl, Pinky) I love about myself. Because we should love ourselves! I want Mia to love herself and she's going to learn by my example! I love these 10 things about myself because they make me happy, make me a better person and help me to grow as I change through the years.
Totally fuzzy, but hey! Crappy phone selfies are just a normal part of our daily ;) Unless Eric wanted to surprise me with a new phone...1- my hair.
2- my body. I am so thankful for my health each day. I am grateful I was able to grow a baby inside. I love that I have the ability to be so active. My body is strong and I am able to sculpt it to look a way that makes me feel confident when I work hard at it.
3- my ability to laugh easily. Especially at myself :)
4- my faith.
5- my hands. I'm kind of weird and always notice people's hands. I love long, skinny fingers because they always make me think of instruments, music and artists. I actually like the way my hands look and I played piano for years. My fingers always memorized the music and knew just what to play next. I am really good at doing hair (if I say so myself) and I love that my hands create just the style that makes my client feel good about themselves. I love my hands and all that I get to experience because of them!
6- the way I easily make friends. At times I feel shy and totally want to hide in my shell, but for the most part I am able to be outgoing and friendly and I have a lot of amazing family and friendships to show because of it. I am so blessed to be influenced by so many people I've met in life.
7- how deeply and passionately I love. There are obviously different levels of love I feel for those in my life, but I think it's very easy for me to show my love and build up those around me!
8- my wanderlust. I love to explore and go on new adventures with my little family! But at the same time, I am perfectly content with our day to day life. I just really appreciate my yearning for travels and memories with Eric, and sometimes Mia ;)
9- I know what I want in life.
10- my heart. Because I didn't even tell Eric about this post I was writing, but last night he rattled off different things he loved about me, and I thought it was so sweet when he said this. I care, and I would rather care than feel nothing at all in my heart! He also said he likes my tush, but I thought it would be better if I said my heart ;)
So let's hear it, what do YOU love about yourself?!
