"What I Love About Me"

One of my favorite magazines, Marie Claire, has a monthly section called "What I Love About Me". Marie Claire goes around the country, to different cities, and finds all different women, and has them share what they love about themselves. I think its a wonderful idea, and I love reading them every month. Its a feel good thing that flaunts how good women can feel about themselves.

From the August 2010 issue. They were in Miami, FL. My favorite is the women in the lower left hand corner ( wearing a white tank)  who said "As a nurse, I love it when my patients tell me my face looks gentle and comforting"

Here are a few things that I love about me.

I love my hair-- I wake up and it looks good! Literally! I dont have to anything with it if I want to wear it down that day! And the color. The sun lightens it, and adds nautral, beautiful highlights! Gah! Its so pretty and practically shimmers in the sun!
I love my eyes-- They're probably my favorite feature and I get a lot of comments on them.

I love that i can be comfortable alone, with me, myself, and I--i know so many people who are uncomfortable being alone, and dont know what to do with themselves. I love that i can just lounge around the house for a day, and still have a good day.

I love my fashion sense--i love getting dressed each day and paring things together. playing dress up with all my clothes and accessorizing is so much fun!

I love how kind and empathetic i am-- mean people just arent fun to be around, and i hate it when people feel bad about themselves. I think it helps that i am a good listener and am not very judgemental.

I love my ethnicity and my story-- im adopted from China for those of you new readers or if you didnt know that. It sets me apart and people are always interested in my story. I'm also a twin, though we dont know anything about them, if they're a girl or boy or if they even lived. When i tell people that, they always are intruiged x10. They want to know more about it, think its way cool, and the "long lost twin" thing always comes up. I love peoples reactions to it.

I'm proud to say I'm pretty darn comfortable with myself as a person, I know not a lot of teenagers can say that about themselves.
So what do you love about you? I'd love to hear it.

Wow! I had no idea Marie Claire had a page like that. I think that'd be great to post and mention on my fashion blog as we're trying to do more posts on helping females feel beautiful, confident and loved.

Thanks for posting this!

It's so great to see that you're happy with yourself. You're lovely :)

I love being alone too! I can pretty much do anything by myself- shopping or eating. I've even gone to the cinema by myself!

I wish I was more empathetic though. That would be a quality I envy in people. I can be very harsh!

To redeem that, I would say something I love about myself is my reliability. If someone needs me, I am THERE.

Nice post! Very positive xx
