Those are my faults, just to name a few.
You know what's harder than putting those down for the world to see? Thinking of the things I like about myself. I'm so hard on myself every day that I forget how happy I am when I love something about myself. When I look in the mirror and say wow, I look beautiful. Sadly, those moments are few and far between.
I'm really good at smiling. I love to look at a pile of art supplies and come up with a project. I love to snuggle and obsess over my happy puppy. I'm really good at talking to kids and getting on their level. I can usually figure out what they're trying to say and I can help them if something is wrong. I'm really good at baking. I love finding recipes online and tweaking them to our tastes. I'm pretty good at taking basic ingredients, throwing them together, and creating a pretty good meal just by taste. I'm good at listening when other people need to vent, even if I have something I really need to tell others. I'm good at hiding my feelings and sucking it up if I know it means someone else will be happy because of it. I'm one to give way too many second chances, even if they aren't deserved. I try very hard to be accepting and welcoming to people who are different from me because I know we all have something to learn from others. I love to entertain people! Come over and put on a full spread! I love to go shopping and put together a full outfit or two, especially for others (even if I hardly ever buy the things I pick out). I'm usually way more concerned with how other people feel than how I do.

As I wrote this post I kept adding things to the negative list. That's pretty sad but it's something I want to work on. I was unsure what to post about today in wake of the horrible tragedies that have happened in our country over the past few days. I felt like an honest post about what's been on my heart was the most appropriate thing I could write at this point.
I hope everyone has a happy, peace-filled weekend!
