just enough to make us dangerous
the really hard to do meme.

I agree with runedgirl, that after hearing about the loss of Robin Williams today "it seems like a good time for everyone to remind themselves of why we're all important".

So, some positive things about me.

* I'm a happy person. I try and see the bright side of life.
* I like to try new things.
* If I say I'll do something I will do everything within my power to make sure I do it.
* I'm organised (I think that's a positive thing!)
* I'm resilient.

It's weird how hard it is to find nice things to say about yourself.

I tag everyone who hasn't done it yet!!

YAY! You did it! :D
'Cause it really was hard to do this seemingly simple task, wasn't it?

Why do we find it so difficult to praise what makes us unique and wonderful?

ha! I did. I almost didn't but so many others have so I thought I better not chicken out…

Why do we find it so difficult to praise what makes us unique and wonderful?

Good question!

All true, all wonderful!

Thank you sweetie...

You are LIGHT incarnate. <3333

I've been tagged for this, and I'm finding it really hard. It is puzzling (and maybe also a little sad) that people find it hard to write positive things about themselves. Personally I find it much easier to praise others.

So well done you for taking part in this meme and for sharing your wonderful attributes! You rock! :)

13th-Aug-2014 10:27 am (UTC)
Thank you! And you should do it. It's hard because we don't like to say nice things about ourselves and believe me, i have a list a mile long of things I can't do or am not good at, but in amongst all that are some nice things. I'm sure you can find things too! So I tag YOU!

Yay, positivity! It's so hard to think if nice things to say about yourself.

My organization kink approves of your organization kink. :D
13th-Aug-2014 10:28 am (UTC)
Yay for organisation! :)) And yes, it's crazy hard to say nice things about yourself. Weird.
12th-Aug-2014 06:33 pm (UTC)
It is hard to do, but I made myself do it!

Your positive things are all awesome. And yay for being organized! I wish I was...
13th-Aug-2014 10:29 am (UTC)
Thanks hun. I feel really unsettled if I'm not organised in some way. It's annoying at times, I can tell you.
12th-Aug-2014 06:37 pm (UTC)
I don't know you super-well or anything, but can I just say that your positive outlook on life shines through in your wonderful, funny, clever, and heartwarming vids?

And it's in the subtext of all your SPN posts. Your enthusiasm and insight have been largely responsible for my sticking with the show and the fandom the last couple of years. I think you're awesome.

Thank you so much sweetie. Your comment has really lifted my day. I'm feeling a little flat at the moment so doing this took a little extra effort. I'm glad I did, if only to get this lovely comment. :) <33
12th-Aug-2014 07:53 pm (UTC)
I'm very organised too! and YAY for happy people! again, me too ♥ you're awesome, bb ♥
13th-Aug-2014 10:34 am (UTC)
Thanks sweetie!! I get very itchy if I'm not organised (or that might actually be stress…). If I'm organised I am extra happy! :DD And I can tell you are a happy person too. :D
12th-Aug-2014 08:44 pm (UTC)
You ARE all those things! And those are hard things to be.

I finally am back in the land of the internet and have some vid thoughts. <3
12th-Aug-2014 11:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And welcome back. I look forward to hearing them. I feel a little deflated after all the gishwhesing and need something new to focus on. ;)

It is really weirdly hard to do this, isn't it? I think that says something about how often we downplay the good things about ourselves, which isn't very healthy. I could easily think of a dozen other good things about you, but it's harder to do that for ourselves. I'm glad you did it :)
14th-Aug-2014 02:14 pm (UTC)
It's so hard! This week particularly as I am feeling so flat - I think after all the activity of gishwhes. ;) And thank you, I wasn't going to do it but I saw that comment on your post and it inspired me. :)
13th-Aug-2014 07:46 am (UTC)
Two thumbs WAY up for giving this a go, more people need to love the things they are not focus on the things they aren't and you Miss Ash are fantabulous :D

Thank you so much sweetie. <33 People DO need to give it a go! It's easy to think of all the things we're not good at and not the ones we are…;)

I found it very hard to find 5 things! But I'd agree wholeheartedly with all 5 of yours, especially after our little team experience when I got to witness most of those in action! And your positivity has always been a balm in fandom - it's been lovely getting to know you a bit better over the last few months.
14th-Aug-2014 02:18 pm (UTC)
5 things are hard! I think the week helped me feel a bit more positive about myself (but damn, I wish I could shake this really flat feeling. It's driving me nuts…).

It was lovely getting to know you and the other gals better during that week. <3

*Jumps in for a late comment*

I totally agree with the nice things you are saying about yourself!! *nods* and I'll add that you are a bright and beautiful spirit, lifting up and inspiring people around you with it. :D ♥

Maybe we just don't feel comfortable with saying nice things about ourselves because it seems to make us vulnerable to being criticized, and we rather have others saying nice things about us anyway. Just like it feels better to be hugged by somebody else rather than hugging ourself. My 2 cents worth of thoughts on this anyway.

I'm reading in a comment you are feeling kinda flat. Hmmm... *That* is NOT acceptable and calls for LOOOOTS of squishy HUGS with ADDED giggles and smiles and BRIIIGHT and cheery vibes!!!

(((sends))) :D


*goes back into the lately adopted lurky mode*

Hello darling! And thank you so much for your kind words. <33

And yes, I think you are right. It's just uncomfortable saying "I'm good a this!".

And my blues lifted today!! YAY! I think after the hectic gishwhes week it was weird getting back to normal life. But today was lovely. The sun was shining, I had lots of "me" time and I got lots of things done. :))

Thanks again sweetie! You always lift my spirits. <333
