Every person has a lot of talents and likable character features. Often it seems to be easier to find those in others that in ourselves.

But here is the thing: the reason why we can see those traits in others is, because we know them from within ourselves. It takes one to know one.

So, in some way it can be an act of kindness towards others as well as towards ourselves to acknowledge the parts of us that we like. Because if we do, we become more content with ourselves and more understanding towards others.


Personally, I have to say that I actually like myself. Sometimes I might forget, but generally I find back to the point where I remember that I do like me. Albeit I usually do not mention it but rather go ahead and just share with others – sometimes it might be a smile, other times it might be a deep conversation and at the same time I appreciate what I like in others. Unless I am being asked directly about what is, say, my favourite part about myself.

Today, I have been asked exactly that. While I used to slightly diminish my talents and likable features when being asked about them in order to be modest, as I have been taught a good girl should be and do, I am taking on a different approach since rather recently. Now, I choose to just be honest about it. Nothing to brag about but also nothing to hide. This way I encounter myself with the same courtesy that others get from me (which, in turn, makes it easier for me to bide this courtesy to others, by the way).

So, what is my favourite part about myself?

I believe, my favourite part about myself is probably my ability to love.


What is your favourite part about yourself?

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much Love,
Steffi
