Something happened today that doesn’t normally happen to me: I thought nicely about myself.
I began this Appreciation Jar as a means to capture the compliments others have about me, because I have such a difficult time looking at myself an appreciating who/what I am. It’s true that I have been going through so much in life (Granted, I realize there are people with different, worse, less worse, menial, catastrophic or whatever problems, but mine are mine…), but I have started looking at things I like about myself. I had this contest, recently, to re-design my page and now, every time I look at it, I am comforted.
There is something warm about it. Something bright about it. Something fun about it. Something soothing about it. I am really loving the pink vibe, I get, and I have just realized that I think I am Pink (not the singer, though I do love her). I am not sure what that means, exactly, because I know there is an idea that our personalities and emotional traits are represented by colors; but I have no idea what Pink means.
But, for the time being, I like Pink. I really, really, really, like Pink. And I feel Pink. And it makes me happy that I can, for a moment, appreciate something about myself.
Today, I am Pink.
And I feel good saying it.
