Hey, did you know that today is Self Affirmation Day (”I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and…doggone it! People like me!”) That's the word over at Eclectic Spaghetti. It has been awhile since I've celebrated an Eclectic holiday and this one strikes me a one I could use.
So...self-affirmations. Always so hard, don't you think? Let's see...Oh! I meant to mention this...here is a good one. On Sunday, my Musical Message was also my 1,200th post. So, I may not be the best blogger in the world, but I'd say I'm showing some stamina or something, right? Yay 1,200!!! What else? I have raised / am raising 5 human beings to adulthood without doing any serious damage that I know of. Right on! Um, hm...even though at work I am a paraprofessional rather than a professional, I think I behave in a professional manner. I know of a professional or two here who are far less professional than I am. Of course this is all just semantics :-) But I'm a good worker. Rah! I can be sarcastic, but I believe that I am basically a kind person who is willing to think the best of people...and that seems to me a very positive trait. So I'm giving myself kudos for that too.
Okay. This is weird. Self-affirmation feels so boastful. I know it is to make you feel good about yourself. I prefer to hear it from other people...but I know we shouldn't need that...we should be able to find it in ourselves. So, I tried. You should too. Tell yourself (and us, if you would like) about all the things that make you good enough, smart enough, and so gosh darn likeable!
