BMJ: Day 10 Consider Your Positive Memories

Now it’s time for something positive. Yesterday’s entry in my “Beautiful Me Journal” was focused on bringing to the surface the horrible and negative things I say to myself. I certainly hope my negative thoughts are not triggering anyone else’s, but I know this whole exploring what’s going on inside of me is for a purpose – to create a better image I have of myself. And I am trying to keep the suggestions in the book, “Beautiful You” in mind as I learn to accept myself as I am.  So, for day 10, I’m answering these questions:

What do you appreciate most about yourself?

One of my favorite compliments I received when I was growing up is that I am conscientious of others. I find my ability to be compassionate to other’s plight to be something I appreciate about myself.  And, as I write this, I become somewhat aware that this is something I have lost focus on. But, writing it also reminds me that this is at my core – even if I haven’t shown it in quite some time.

What are you most confident about?

This is a difficult question for me to answer. I am utterly unsure anymore, because I don’t feel like much of a success anymore in life. But, I’m going to force myself to answer the question and say I am quite confident in my mathematical abilities. I wasn’t always good at math, but as I progressed in school and went on to college, I really began to love it.  Sometimes, I feel like I should have pursued something that allowed me to exercise these skills.

What is the first positive memory you have of yourself?

First positive?  I’m not even sure. I have several as a child. There is the time my grandmother taught me how to hit a baseball. There are the many times I played with my cousin growing up. I loved fishing with my grandparents. So, I suppose time with family had a huge positive impact on me.

Was anyone there to witness that moment?

I think I mentioned family above….lol

If so, who was there and how did he, she or they react?

The loved it too, I think.

  1. I have never noticed your compassion as gone missing. You have a beautiful big heart and I have no doubt that would do whatever for someone in need. Especially the ones you have enclosed into your heart and that hold a special place. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey for I am grateful that our paths have crossed. Much love to you, always. ❤️

    1. It softens me so much to know that people still see this in me. I feel like the state of mind I have been in for so long has tarnished how I view the world, but it’s a blessing to know that people can still feel my kindness.

      1. Life tarnishes is all and I think sometimes it’s unavoidable to erase all of the signs and impacts of society and daily life. However your true friends will always know you in a different level and realize who you really are. There you can be, for you are embraced and not judged. Always remember your worth and how special you are my dear princess. You got this ❤️❤️❤️
