Tell Me What You Like About Yourself

First and foremost, I'm so sorry it's been such a long time since I've blogged; I had midterms and as much as I love blogging and love all you dearies, my classes have to be top priority! But for neglecting you all for so long I'm sorry-- with meaning (Side Note: When I was about 5 years old I got in trouble for doing who knows what to my sister and my parents demanded that I apologized; so I did; In the snobbiest most sarcastic voice I could muster I said "I'm sorry!" To which my Dad said (and by said I mean screamed) "Jennie, say you're sorry with meaning!" So I did... I said in that same grating voice oozing with sarcasm "I'm sorry with meaning") (Now every time I say I'm sorry--with meaning you'll get the reference!

Anywho, I don't know how many of you have seen a little show called Nip/Tuck but it's terrific drama about plastic surgery and the lives of the surgeons; every episode starts off with the same question posed to their potential client: "Tell me what you don't like about yourself." The answers have ranged from "I don't like my nose" to "my left leg shouldn't be there...please remove it." Regardless of the particular answer, there is always something that a prospective client doesn't like about their physical appearance (obviously...or they wouldn't be there paying an arm and a leg (heheh) to get something fixed).

If you were to ask me what I don't like about my physical appearance, well, let's just say I could write an entire blog devoted solely to aspects of my appearance that I abhor; I could do a different aspect every day and have plenty of material. But that's not the purpose of this post; my purpose in writing this post is to talk about what I actually DO like about my appearance (I hope that doesn't sound too narcissistic...I'm trying to see the good aspects instead of always focusing on the negative ones); and in turn I really want to hear from YOU, my loyal reader! I want to know what things about your appearance you personally like!

So here we go...what I like about my self (physically)
  1. The "beauty mark" on the apple of my left (?) cheek (face cheek...not the butt variety)
  2.  My collar bones when I hunch
  3. The parts of my hip bone that protrude a little....unless I'm laying down in which case it hurts
  4. The way my top lip looks when my mouth is partially open and my chin is tilted upwards
  5. The color of my eyes when I wear turquoise
  6. The natural dip where my bra strap goes (if that makes any sense)
  7. My scars...I know that seems weird to like an obvious flaw but I think they all tell a story and help make me who I am...(and will also help my mother in the event that she has to id my dead body =) I'm so thoughtful)
But yep, there she blows...and by there she blows I mean: There's my list of things I like about my appearance!

Now it's your turn!!!

That's all for now folks!

  1. The only thing I actually like about myself is my eyes. My friends can probably make a list of the things they like though, heh.

  2. Hmm... I don't know. I've been struggling with HORRIBLE self esteem for much of my life, and only recently started to like different parts of myself.

    Right now, the things that I like on a somewhat consistent basis are how great my ass looks in jeans, my eyes, and I've got a love-hate relationship with my boobs.. :-)


  3. I really like this post! so many people always say the negative things but sharing what you like about yourself will help boost your self esteem. :) right now i really like my eyes, my hair, and my smile!

  4. I'm glad you like the post and don't think I'm a *total* narcissist!
    @Seana: low self-esteem sucks huh? Although I'm pretty confident with who I am on the inside

    @Remy: I bet they can!
