I Love Me – I Love Me Not!

What is something I love about myself? And Why? Good grief. When someone asks me a question like this, my first response is “I have absolutely no idea”. Then when I get quiet and dig deeper, I find a thing or two.

I love that I can find the good in anyone. Judgment doesn’t play a part in who I am. I believe that our place in life is to enjoy and even embrace each other as we are. I feel sad sometimes when people can’t be bothered to give someone else a chance to reveal their true selves.

When I was much younger, I had friends that enjoyed riding Harleys before that was cool. They wore their leather jackets and had longer hair than was acceptable at the time. This was when I lived in California. I enjoyed going to a neighborhood bar later in the evenings on occasion. My biker friends would wait outside of the bar to make sure I got in safely. I had other friends that had a hard time understanding why I wasn’t nervous about them waiting for me. I had gotten to know their stories and felt comfortable talking with them. I also appreciated their thoughtfulness about my safety. Even though their outward appearance was not the norm, they were good people.

There is also a part of me that understands that I am meant to love myself. It is my job to live in my higher self and to understand that I have a purpose in life. 

That being said, I sure wish I could figure out exactly what my purpose is. I don’t love many of my bad habits. I often lack motivation and drive. I procrastinate something awful and I talk about wonderful ideas and then I fail to follow through. I can be lazy at times and am pulled off the task at the drop of a hat. I don’t love that I am extremely hard on myself and my own worst critic.

But wait a minute. This post is supposed to talk about what I love. I love nurturing others. I enjoy seeing to it that my family’s needs are met. Finding solutions to problems makes me very happy. I love that about me. Being sensitive and understanding others comes very naturally to me. Listening to people when they share their interests and their families is something I love to do.

In all honesty, I love who I am. I think I have a good heart, a good mind, a healthy body (with a few extra pounds) and I am surrounded by a loving husband, an amazing son, a kooky sister and her wonderful family. I love all of that about me.
