3 Things about Me

(This is Day 8 of my Journaling through January series)

What are three (or more) things you love about yourself? Write them down and look back at them whenever you're struggling to find self worth.

Hmmm....three things I love about myself....

1. My blue eyes.

2. The way I can turn my thoughts into written words just the way I want them.

3. When I was about 8, I realized that when I read the Great Illustrated Classics, I was not reading the "real" thing, and from then on refused to read them because the "real thing" was most likely better than a knock-off. My first choice to read the "real thing" happened to be The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I love that I actually read 95% of it, although I'm pretty sure I didn't understand very much of it. (*Note that I am in no way hating on The Great Illustrated Classics--they're great to get kids interested in classic stories! I just think my second-grade snobbery is hilarious in retrospect.)

Wow, that was much harder than I thought! Have a great Sabbath!

  1. So you are a book snob, and you love it. That is a good thing, right? Way too funny!
