Here we are at day 2 of this 25 days of gratitude challenge. Today’s question is : What is the one thing you love about yourself?

This is a really tough question for me. I have had major self esteem issues my entire life. There’s not much that I like about myself. Ever since I met my beautiful wife, I have started to see myself in a different light because of how much she tells me how beautiful and wonderful I am. Now 99% of the time I don’t believe her but that 1% does make me rethink and makes me say “well maybe I am actually beautiful, just maybe… ”

When I initially read this question I immediately was thinking of a physical attribute but I can see how you can answer this about an internal trait as well. So I will answer it both ways.

The physical thing that I love about me are my eyes. I don’t want to toot my own horn or anything but I do have really pretty eyes. My eyes are the one thing I have loved on myself since forever. I have beautiful baby blues, I am consider myself very lucky. I was REALLY hoping my son would get my eyes but his eyes are darker than dark. But even though he didn’t get them he’s still insanely cute.

The internal trait that I love about myself is how I always think the best of people. Has this thinking bit me in the butt a few times? of course it has. But I just think how miserable it would be to always be suspicious of people and their actions. Thinking positively makes your life better, I just know it does.

I am so grateful for these traits that I have. I just wouldn’t be me without them!

What is 1 thing you love about yourself?
