How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways.

xoAnd by thee, I mean me.

One of my “things” on my 101 in 1001 – The Remix (which I’m not doing very good at completing, by the way) is to make a list of 43 I like about myself. Blergh. This makes me uncomfortable. It was hard enough when I made the list of 101 Things That Make Me Happy. You would think for as much as I talk about myself that this wouldn’t be a big deal. But it is.

Let’s see how long this takes me to complete. I’m starting on Tuesday, February 4 at 3:55p.

  1. I love to laugh.
  2. My laugh… every variation of it, from the loud, whip my head back, obnoxiously loud laugh to “hehehe” giggle to the “ohmigawd I can’t stop giggling so I’ll just cover my mouth, hold my breath & try to be quiet” laugh.
  3. I refuse to act like a grown up.
  4. I love trying new things.
  5. My love for animals.
  6. My eyes.
  7. My beauty marks. The one on my left temple and the one my chest are my favs.
  8. My smile.
  9. Mah boobies! (I’m laughing. You should be, too. How could I not mention those? I mean, c’mon. I named a vehicle after them.)
  10. I don’t give up without a fight.
  11. I don’t have to surround myself with a lot of people. The few people I’m genuinely close to are all I need.
  12. I don’t believe in belonging to a clique or circle. People are too amazing to be categorized.
  13. I can accept I’m not good at a lot of things but it doesn’t keep me from enjoying them.
  14. My patience.
  15. My impatience.
  16. The fact that I recognize how ridiculously over-dramatic I am.
  17. The fact that I’m over-dramatic. It amuses me.
  18. I’m forgiving. Eventually.
  19. My awkward silence.
  20. I’m easily moved to tears.
  21. I’m a dreamer.
  22. I’m a realist.
  23. I name inanimate objects.
    For example: ThePod  (my car), TheHut (my house), TopHvy (my old Jeep), FabulousRedBag, George (my 1st iPod, my 2nd iPod, the plant I killed), Spidey (the other plant I killed), Monster (the stuffie on my bed), ExH1 & ExH2 (okay, they’re not inanimate but close enough)
  24. I can laugh at myself, no matter how ridiculous the situation.
  25. My willingness to make a fool out of myself to make someone else laugh.
  26. My curiosity.
  27. I’ll drop everything to be there for someone.
  28. I can openly & freely admit my faults.
  29. I like being the center of attention.
  30. I like to blend in.
  31. The fact that I realize 29 & 30 completely contradict each other.
  32. I’m willing to step outside of my comfort zone even if it scares the hell out of me.

Geez, this is hard. (2/5/14 @ 12:50a)

  1. I like to share my happy (really, I feel like I’ll burst if I don’t).
    PS – Check out this site. So much fun. 24hoursofhappy.com

I have to stop & think about this more. (2/5/14 @ 3:36p)

  1. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty. (Okay, yes I do mind but I’m willing to.)
  2. I can take things apart and put them back together, usually without extra parts.
  3. I don’t hate.
  4. I’m pro-life but support pro-choice.
  5. I believe time is greater than money, not time is money.
  6. I’m a part-time adrenaline junkie. (See #32. It sometimes takes me time to build up courage.)
  7. I looooove to dance. (At a club. At home. Walking down the hall at work. Basically when the mood hits me. The wild, crazy “I’d never do this in public” dances are usually the best ones.)
  8. A single song can get stuck in my head out of nowhere and stay there for a week. Then I won’t think about it again for months.
  9. I cannot hide my emotions.
  10. For as much as I have a hard time listing things I like about myself, I’ve never not loved myself.

Whew. I’m glad that’s over. It only took me 2 days.

    Don’t feel bad… I’m not doing well on my 101 in 1001 either. It probably taken me way longer to come up with 43 things! #25 – and we do laugh!! Is there a special reason for 43 things?
