AJ: Pink

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.

  1. That’s the first thing that popped in my head when I opened your site – what a lovely shade of pink! And I absolutely love the idea of a virtual appreciation jar. We all give ourselves such a tough time these days, don’t understand why we’re so incapable of seeing the best in us. Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea, I hope you love and feel loved all your life. 🙂

      1. I can understand. Its the over-thinking that gets me down in the dumps. I try not to but some days its inevitable. Always good to know there’s someone (tons) out there with just the same problems. 🙂

  2. Keep going and remind yourself every day, finding something positive you like about yourself. Maybe you could draw a compliment someone has given you from your appreciation jar whenever you feel down. 😉
