Lately I seem to be encountering many people who have a very difficult time finding anything good to say about themselves. They are able to extend grace and forgiveness's to others but find it difficult to extend that same grace to themselves.
With that in mind, let's share some healthy affirmation today! Tell us five things you like about yourself!
1: My eyes. Superficial, I know, but I think they are my bet physical feature. And even though it requires ever-stronger contact lenses and glasses (and now, with reading glasses, sometimes both) to let me see, I love the way they change color with what I'm wearing.
2: My hobbies. I have lots, and can't give the time to them that I'd like, but I like being someone who knows how to do lots of different things, at least a little bit. And I like having lots of creative outlets.
3: My brain. Although it misfires from time to time, and currently I'm experience a significant and worrying block focused on my dissertation, I like that I'm pretty bright and able to express myself well most of the time.
4: My heart. Although sometimes it can get a little bruised, I think I have a pretty open heart and I love people easily--a two-edged sword for a pastor, but I think it makes me a better one.
5: My humility? Just kidding. I like that I'm a good listener (someone told me that just this morning) and that people trust me enough to invite me into their lives by talking to me about them,
