In a previous post, “Let’s Get to the Basics of Me” I discussed a process of self discovery and examination or re-examination that I wanted to subject myself to in order to determine the direction that I wanted to take my life. After listing who I was, and am, I related several additional assignments of self examination I was considering. I was intrigued with these assignments because they focused on positives….no negatives. The first examination would be character.
I decided to create a little workbook and address the following:
1. The best thing that ever happened to me
2. 5 things that I like about myself
3. 3 ways others would describe me
4. Finish this sentence: My dream is…
5. Why am I here
6. 50 things that make me happy.
I have decided against a workbook. I will respond to these thought provoking exercises in separate blogs and modify a few of them in order that they make more sense for me personally.
This is yet another process, another positive examination.
I am to think about some good attributes about myself. The 5 things that I like about myself.
Why 5? Can I think of 5? Why just 5? Should I further define the 5?
During this thought process, I have decided to be even more focused. I am delving into more defined areas, because I feel it will be more helpful to me in my journey.
The first exercise…list 5 things I like about myself. I have further defined this for me. I will list 5 things in my character that I like about myself. It has taken considerable thought.
The 5 things that I like the most about my character are:
1. I think.
2. I am honest.
3. I am loyal.
4. I am postive.
5. I don’t give up. I keep on keeping on. I am steadfast.
Even though a variety of things entered my mind, I feel these are the most important. I drafted this post so that I could return to it and re evaluate the 5 that I decided upon. After considerable review, I feel confident that these are the things I most like about myself…at least my character.
How about you? What do you like about yourself?
