Today I turned 35. I took myself out for brunch at one of my favorite coffee shops and after eating wrote out a list of things I appreciate about myself. I came up with 36 things in a period of about 30 minutes. As I was writing it was interesting to realize that some of the things have been a part of me for most of my life and some things have only recently become a part of my life. I noticed it is easy to think of things that I want to change about myself and I do it without even concentrating, but taking time to think of things I like about myself takes effort. I can honestly say it is worth the effort!
