Why I love me:
- I’m independent: This is probably one of the things I’m most proud about. Around 4 years ago, I couldn’t say this about myself. It’s not bad to rely on others, but I got to a point where I realised that I needed to do things by myself. So I went out of my comfort zone and did things by myself such as going to the shops alone, getting a part-time job etc. This really helped me improve my confidence.
- I’m curious about everything: I love discovering and learning new things about the world. I like to diversify myself and know a little about a lot of different things. This can be by listening to music of different languages, watching movies and TV shows from around the world etc. It opens my eyes to a lot of things and allows me to talk to a wide range of people.
- I’m creative: leading on from my previous point, knowing about a wide range of things allows me to get my creative juices flowing. I’m not creative in terms of writing stories (but I do some poetry occasionally) or art, but more on the terms of musically. If you’ve followed my blog since last year, then you might remember the fact that I can play the piano. Despite being busy with college, I try to make time to learn a new song (I haven’t composed one of yet).
- I’m ambidextrous: This is going WAY back to one my first posts when I talked about a special quality I had. Ambidexterity refers to being able to use both hands adeptly. I’m mostly right-handed but when I’m using scissors I use my left hand. This is completely unconscious, but when I dwell on it, it is one of the things that make me special so I love it.
- I over-think: Now this is sometimes said to be bad, but I kind of like it. Most of the time, I live in my head, playing unrealistic episodes over and over again. But sometimes over-thinking has its uses. Whenever I need to make big decisions, over-thinking allows me to carefully consider all the pros and cons of it. This then allows me to make a rational and logical decision.
- I’m good at talking to people: If you’ve ever met me in real life, you would know that I hate awkward silences. I always laugh weirdly or make a comment just so the silence can pass. But, I’m coming to realise that I’m actually pretty good at engaging people in conversations. I know and want to share lots of things, so whenever a conversation runs dry, I know how to pick it up again by talking about something completely different i.e. about politics, school or a new joke.
- My hair: One of my proudest achievements in my life is my hair. When I was younger, I had really short hair since my mum would always cut it off and I hated it. As I growing up, I’ve always wanted long hair. My hair is now very long (up to my waist) and very thick. It’s nice at times to receive compliments about it because I think if it wasn’t for my hair, there wouldn’t be many things to compliment me about :-P
- I’m good at multi-tasking: During those rare moments when I’m actually concentrating and productive, I can multi-task really well. I think it’s a really good life skill to have since I can get lots of stuff done in a short space of time since I’m able to shift my concentration to different tasks.
- I have a good sense of humor: I love cracking jokes and sometimes they can be so lame that I can make my friends cringe at times, but it’s nice to see them laugh regardless. I can be quite witty at times and I think that is quite cool.
- I’m self-aware: I was and still am a pretty insecure person. But what makes me different from who I was 5 years ago, was that now I able to identify these insecure thoughts and substitute them for positive ones. Of course, it doesn’t always work, but I’ve been doing some self-developmental work over the past year or so (blogging playing a huge part) and now I’m happy to be where I am right now. I have a long way to but it’s nice to know that I have made it this far.
Wow, that was difficult. I really struggled thinking of 10 things that I love about myself. I had to ask some of my family members :-D
