Secret Subject Swap
Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. Twenty brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else
and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously
divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and
check them all out. See you there:
My subject is “Please tell me about 3 of your attributes you genuinely like – whether your
appearance, personality, character – anything about YOU!
It was submitted by: Simply Chic for You
Ok, so here it goes:
It's funny to think about things that you actually like about yourself. It's not often that you are really put on the spot to think about yourself in a way a positive manner for more than a brief second. For me those type of moments are very quick anyways. For instance, I may look in the mirror and think, huh, those jeans look pretty good on me, or my makeup came out pretty good, or wow, I just received a really nice compliment from my co-worker, so I must be doing something right :) As quick as those positive moments come though they leave. Now trust me, I am a confident person, and I generally like who I am, but to go there, in this spot to really think about great qualities I have, is just a little funny and well, interesting.
After some thought on this subject this is what I have finally concluded:
#1.My appearance: I like that I look like a combination of my mom and my dad pretty equally. I have my dad's dimple and there is only one and it is on the right side. I also like that my eyes are turning to be more green like my mom and every so often when I look in the mirror just right, I can see her pretty face staring back at mine.
#2. My personality: I am a layed back kind of girl. I don't stress to much, and I hardly ever get angry. I really believe that things happen for a reason and I just try to deal with situations in that moment as best as I can. I have noticed that co-workers and friends, and family always open up to me and I think it's because I really don't judge and I try to be a good listener (although with 2 kids now that is a little more difficult these days!)
#3. My gender (for the lack of a better term): I love being a girl or should I say woman now? I love everything that comes along with it from being a mom, to being a wife, to liking girly Pinterest stuff, to being able to dye my hair 10 different colors in one year and regretting half of them and making the same mistake the following year. I love clothes, and shoes and make up and being active. I love connecting with other women in my life whether it be my mom or sister or friends or women who I have met through blogging and being a Beach Body Coach. I love being able to flirt with my husband and get a way with things that no guy ever could because I AM A WOMAN. I love the whole progression of being a girl from being catty with other girls to learning an appreciation for sisterhood. It's all a learning experience and I think it is 100% fun!
