Recapturing Beauty-Day 3

Day 3

Pretty is something your born with. But beautiful? That's an equal opportunity adjective.

The Challenge: 10 Positive Things

Make a list of 10 positive things you like about yourself that have nothing to do with your appearance, and 10 positive things you like about your appearance.

Why? Your perception of yourself includes the physical. We won't pretend it's not important...physical factors are part of the mortal world we live in. We've challenged you to make two lists because both your inner and outer beauty affect you and there will be times you feel insecure about both. Refer back to your lists and remember the positive.

It is unusually quiet around my house right now. Baby sleeping peacefully on my bed, ahhhh and those two crazy boys are at their cousin Ryan's birthday party with their daddy! What better time to do my challenge and then after I'm done I'm going to go snuggle with my little Kenz and give her a big kiss and fall asleep next to her, one of my FAVORITE things!

10 things I like about myself that have nothing to do with my appearance

1.) I thrive being around people
2.) I quickly compliment others when I notice something I like about them
3.) I am kind
4.) I'm quick to forgive
5.) I love helping others
6.) I do not procrastinate
7.) I'm good at public speaking
8.) When I want something done I work really hard to accomplish whatever it is
9.) I am a people pleaser...this is good and bad
10.) When I say I am going to do something I do it

10 Things I like about my appearance

1.) I like my eyes
2.) I like my eyelashes
3.) I like my wrists...weird I know but they are like the only skinny part on me right now
4.) I like how voluptuous I am right now....I would have killed it back in the day when fat was hot
5.) I like my lips or at least Jordan tells me how luscious they are ha ha ha ha
6.) I like my nursing mommy upper half
7.) I like my chubby cheeks. I've had them my whole life, skinny or not, and now my little girl does too
8.) I like my fingernails right now. They are long for once.
9.) I like my long hair, but not the color and that will change in a few weeks when I see Whitney
10.) I like that I have small hands cause I'm a girl and I can't imagine having man hands!

If you dwell on the things you're not, you'll miss out on the things you really are.
