Every week, I wait on pins and needles for Jeni’s pictures of Doughnut Day – the day her daughter gets to eat, you guessed it, powdered sugar doughnuts. Jeni is great at celebrating something small every week, and those pictures of little Leah grinning, covered in sugar, make my day.
It’s no surprise that someone who brings a little light in a dark world would have a great self-care tip. Hers is simple: “Come up with a list of stuff you like about yourself, without any ‘buts’.”
I’ve written about a couple of lists before. For Thanksgiving Advent, I made a list of things I am grateful for. I made a list of things I like about my best friend. I made a Big Bad Things List. Before job interviews, I often take the time to list my strengths – but I’ve never done so for myself. To kick off our Mondays, why not give it a shot?
Here are a few of mine:
- Good hair life
- Good chicken noodle soup
- Good long-distance friend
- Great list-maker
Don’t be shy! I’d love to hear one of yours. Oh ya – and happy Doughnut Day, to those who observe it!
