Do the "Me Me Me Meme"
List 10 positive things about yourself, including at least:
2 things about your relationships/interactions with other people (can be anyone -- friends, family, strangers (being kind to strangers is something to be proud of, after all), pets, yourself)
2 positive things about your appearance
2 positive things about your professional/creative abilities
1 positive personality trait; something that you would never willingly change about yourself
That gives you 3 "wild cards" to spread around the above categories (or things outside of these categories)
No qualifying your statements, e.g. "I remember most of my friends' birthdays, though I should make more of an effort to celebrate with them."
No item is too small to mention. "I have a very nice pinky nail" is a perfectly valid type of statement.
Remember: "Positive" is in the eye of the beholder. Try not to feel constrained by what other people might think.
This is not meant to be a smarmy cheerleader exercise, I just thought that we could all use some positive energy right about now...
(And I apologize that I don't have time to complete the meme for myself right now, but I promise that I will do it ASAP!)
