Spreading the love

I've seen the "love" list on the pages of several fellow bloggers and I've decided to join in. I strongly encourage you to do this as well, if you haven't already. Here's the post that started it all.

THE ONLY RULE: No backhanded compliments. No "I like my eyes 'cause they distract from my incredibly large ass." Only positives.

The "I LOVE ME" List

1. What do you absolutely love about your body? I love my eyes and my lips. I love how my thighs may be a little chubby now but they are free from cellulite and they tone up really easily.

2. When did you surprise yourself with your physical strength? When I delivered both of my girls. It's still hard to fathom that I pushed a baby out, twice no less!

3. When were you braver than you ever thought you could be? When I was 6 months pregnant with my youngest and I left my horrible marriage. We lived 1000 km away from all my family and friends and I had no car but I packed up all of our stuff, carried box after box over to the post office to ship to my parent's house and got my daughter and I on an airplane away from a very toxic place.

4. When did your self-control blow you away? When I kept my mouth shut when my (soon to be) ex husband spewed vile and horrible comments and threats at me when I was packing up to leave him. I didn't even allow myself to hear what he was saying. By that point, I knew he was full of crap and that soon I'd never have to deal with him again.

5. What is your proudest moment ever? I have two. Holding my babies, just moments after they were born.

6. When was the last time you felt absolutely beautiful? It was sometime last fall. I was wearing a new top and a jean skirt... nothing fancy but I felt like I looked GREAT. I felt like I looked amazing and was full of self confidence.

7. Why do you deserve to meet your goals? Because I deserve to feel successful.
