30 Days of Truth – Day 02

Day 02 – Something you love about yourself.

It’s been a long, rough week – actually a rough 2011 so far – and I’m feeling worn out and beaten down. The mild temperatures and sunny blue skies we had earlier have been replaced with silvery skies, cooler temps, and a biting wind.

Times like this it’s really hard for me to be positive, to see a half-full glass, to be confident in who I am.

So what does this have to do with the 30 Days of Truth?

I’m getting to it.

 

Day 02 is “Something you love about yourself,” and the thing I love best about myself is the strength and resiliency my mom fostered in me.

No matter what happens, I keep going.

Because I’m strong.

 

When I want to curl up in a ball and let the world go on without me, I keep going.

Because I’m strong.

 

When I want to yell “Stop the World; I want to get OFF!” I may clench my fists and stomp my feet, but I keep on going.

Because I’m strong.

 

When I’m faced with everyday challenges like puke and poop I may hold my breath and turn my face, but I keep going.

Because I’m strong.

 

When I’m faced with the worst moments in my life, like losing our baby, my grandma’s death, and a missing child I may feel like dying, but I keep going.

At least until the crisis is over.

 

Afterwards I fall to pieces. I sob like a baby, holding on to Teacher like a drowning man clutching a lifeline.

But not for long; once the storm has passed I pull myself together and keep going.

Because I’m strong.

 

Hopefully life won’t throw too much more at me, but if it does I know I’ll be OK.

I can keep going.

Because I’m strong.

 

Your turn: What do you love about yourself?
