Things I Like About ME

by Jodifur on July 11, 2011

My lovely friend Elena came up with this amazing idea: "And so an idea was born.  The idea of making a list.  A powerful list. A list with no self deprecating sarcasm. A list of love. This list, will be “Things I like About ME.”

I decided to give it a shot.  I am my own worst critic.  I swear, I am horribley hard on my self.  Doug often leaves the room when I am trying to find something to wear, he can't deal with how many times I say "I look fat."



1.  I like that I am a really good friend.  I am the friend that you can call at 4 am.  Even though you probably shouldn't because my phone is charging down stairs.  That was a better anaolgy when I had a house phone.

2.  I like that I am loyal to a fault.  I am loyal even when I shouldn't be, when people don't deserve it.

3.  I like that I am always on time.  Even though it frequently means I am waiting for other people, to me it shows I respect people enough to be on time.

4.  I like that I am well read.  I love curling up with a good book.

5.  I like that I am a good speller, and that my husband, who is not, asks me how to spell words.

6.  I like that I am a good writer, and that I am finally confident enough to say it out loud.

7.  I like that I am a good cook, and that I enjoy cooking.

8.  I like that I am good at accessorizing.  Not just shoes, but fun, costume jewlery as well.

9.  I like that I can pair wine and food like nobody's business.  It is fun when you go out to dinner and everyone hads you the wine list

10.  I like that I have a crazy good memory.  I remember things from years and years ago.

11.  I like that I am good at keeping secrets.  It means people can trust you.

You are an amazing friend and I adore you even more for doing this!

I like this. :)

Good list. I love people who are loyal to a fault. My kids are, too. I think I accidentally grew out of it or something along the way – that’s a trait of yours that I am indeed envious of! Again, good list!

What a good idea. I might have to try this.

And Jodi, I like you!! I wish I had the knowledge for the wine tasting… I’m working on it! :)

Okay the first one made me laugh. It’s SO true! And since having a baby I am always late and it KILLS me. I hate being late, I hate to think that whoever I am meeting doesn’t think I respect their time. I really need to work on that!

Stimey July 11, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I’ve been liking all these lists. And I like you too!

Wife and Mommy July 11, 2011 at 5:13 pm

I like you too. Really.

Great list! I wish I could put #3 on mine. But, I am a good speller too!

Karianna July 11, 2011 at 7:37 pm

Love it – What a fabulous person you are!

Krista Swan July 11, 2011 at 11:37 pm

I had the same thought as Minky… I’m always just a little bit late, and it’s not because I don’t respect the time of other people… but I will definitely have to work on that.
Great list, I’ll have to do one too!

Stacy July 12, 2011 at 10:24 pm

You are all of those and much more!
I will personally say that you have been a fabulous friend to me, reaching out when I didn’t reach back.
You are very loved my dear.

From the loyalty to the wine- this is wonderful!

Frelle July 19, 2011 at 6:23 pm

I loved getting to know you better. I have a crazy good memory too, and I like that about me as well, though I didnt list it!
