Amanda started this Positivity Project back in November and I don't think there is a better time than the start of the year to spread some positivity through blog land, but also to remind ourselves in the time of resolutions and goals what we love about ourselves?
Here are Amanda's questions and number 5 I added just for fun!
1. Tell me something that you love about yourself
I'm taking the cues from the other ladies that have done this little Q&A and choosing a physical feature. As much as I didn't like having long hair when I was younger, I'm so happy my mom didn't let me cut or color my hair growing up!!
2. Tell me what you want to work on
I really want to work on being present!! I tried it last year and maybe half succeeded! It's hard to be 100% present especially when so much of our lives revolves around social media, but I'm going to make a conscious and serious effort to remove myself from the computer and my phone after 10:00 PM...certain things can wait! Not checking instagram after that time probably going to be the hardest part!
3. Give someone a compliment and mean it
Jenn, I am so happy to have found your blog and become friends with you through it!! I love how honest you are in your posts and I also love how you always try to see the good in people and situations. More than anything I love our texting convos which mostly consist of selfies and DIYs!
4. Tell me something that you are proud of, succeeded in or are just generally pumped about.
I'm really proud of how far I've come since graduating college. It's been five years and I finally feel like in the last year I've grown the most! I always struggled with figuring out what I wanted to do with my life and through a few lucky breaks and a lot hard work it's finally happening!!
Remember that spark we all had as kids??!! I wanted to throw this bonus question in because I find that as kids, the world was really at our fingertips! We had crazy dreams, aspirations and felt like we could do anything!! Somewhere along the way we lose that spark, but maybe remembering our dream as a child would spark something exciting in us!! Obviously I won't become a princess, but dreaming is always a good idea!
5. When you were a child, what was your dream?
I wanted to be a professional tennis player. I played competitively for 12 years and really thought I was going to be the next Anna Kournikova, but sadly I got burnt out from playing tournaments and decided to give it up after high school. This year I'm going to make a point to join a tennis club in the city and relieve some of my favorite childhood memories!!
Now it's your turn, what do you love about yourself?
