Been making this list for more years than I can count. It often helps my mood.
Five things that are good about me:
I am enthusiastic
I am highly optimistic
I like working and being useful
I readily admit when I'm wrong
I am nearly always kind to myself
Five things I'm grateful for:
My amazing family.
My new job!
Finally being near my mom.
I currently have THREE cute/comfy pairs of work shoes. A personal record, I believe.
I wrote to ask three of my professors to recommend me for grad school. I got instant yeses from two of them, so I'm two thirds of the way there.
Five people or animals who love me without reservation:
Five times in recent memory when I was happy/joyful/contented:
When this guy
spoke at the new job's opening day.
When one of the interview committee sought me out to tell me I had interviewed so well that zie wanted to come get interview tips from me.
When I was sitting under the jacaranda tree, sipping water and reading The Martian
When I got this job.
When I found great shoes at the store that fit and look good.
Five things I'm good at:
Enjoying my own company without being bored
Getting multi-item dinners to all come out at the same time
Admitting when I'm wrong
Cooking eggs (it's an odd thing since I can take eggs or leave them, but almost everyone I've ever cooked eggs for says I do a really good job of them)This entry was originally posted on Dreamwidth (DW).
