Things I Like About Myself ( Tag )

Hello,

I was sitting in bed, not doing anything in particular ( specifically not being at the gym .. but shhhh ;) ) and reading through some new blog posts being a little too tired to be paying proper attention to anything, but there was one that caught my attention . A blogger called Spring Baby ( You should definitely check her out she's lovely and a great writer ) had started a tag. I don't tend to do tags because my blog is aimed at promoting positivity and well-being but I couldn't not do this ! This tag is very simple, you have to come up with 8 things you like about yourself . However it's not so simple when you're trying to do it, which ties in wonderfully with the aims of The 30 Day Happiness Challenge I posted the other week :)

I really can't express how important it is to find and recognise the fantastic, wonderful, incredible things about yourself ! It's not arrogant, it's being kind to yourself and honest <3 So without further a do,  8 things I like about myself :

One : I can see things from other peoples point of views 

Two: My eyes are a bluey-grey colour 

Three: I song-write and it makes me happy 

Four: I'm Short but not as short as my best friend ( I'm winning by a whole centimetre ! WOOO ! ) 

Five : I'm good at working out what colours look nice together 

Six : I can wear flower headbands and I think they look nice 

Seven : I can always find a silver lining no matter what :)

Eight : I can play drums .. I mean it's not very well but regardless, I enjoy it :) 

Wow ! That was a lot harder than I thought it would be ! Now, it's your turn :) So either comment eight things you like about yourself or if you have a blog, YouTube channel, newsletter or any other way of getting things out to the world then go do the tag :) I literally tag EVERYONE because this is something that affects everyone. You are worth compliments just as much as your friends.why do you highlight every wonderful detail of them but ignore your own beautiful traits ? If you do this on your blog or any other platform, I'd love to see it so leave a link in the comments !

Specifically I'd like to tag : Be Nice It's Tuesday and Never Grow Up 

I hope you have a lovely week,

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of Love, Marianne xxx

  5. I love the post that spring baby did :) <3 Definitely think it was very brave of her to start it and for you to share some of the things you love about yourself as well :) It's always way harder finding things you love about yourself but it's always so easy to pin point all of the flaws. I think it's very important that good things like this get more attention. Great post! x

    1. Me too ! It was a wonderful idea :) I completely agree! Non of us ( I hope ) would ever dream of turning around to a friend who'd just been complimented by another friend and going "no, no I don't think so ...in fact you've got a big bum " so why on earth shouldn't we treat ourselves with the same respect and kindness ? We're all wonderful, beautiful and amazing and worth just as much as everyone else :)

    2. Yes!! there's a saying that goes something like "if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend" meaning that if someone was mean to you you'd have the courage to stand up for yourself and leave but when you talk bad to yourself in the same way you just put up with it, why? We are in fact our biggest critique's. It's time we start loving ourselves, I agree everyone is wonderful, beautiful, and amazing <3

    3. Ooo that phrase puts it perfectly :) It's completely right we should be more respectful of ourselves <3

    1. Aww thank you :) I didn't used to be able to find silver linings and I slipped out of it for a little while last month so it's a trait I'm quite proud to of found again :) I did a thirty day happiness challenge which you can find here :

      It's all about doing little things to find positivity :)

    1. Exactly ! I think it's a wonderful idea and self appreciation should be a lot more prevalent on the internet so I really want to promote it :)

  8. This makes me so happy! And all of those are awesome qualities to have, I really wish I could match colours or play an instrument!

    1. I personally think I look a lot like Taylor Swift, and I've been told I do, which I really really hope is true.
    2. I'm a crazy good wakeboarder
    3. I'm very crafty, and I'm good at sewing and drawing and that kind of thing.
    4. I write very well, at least in my opinion.
    5. My eyebrows are on point.
    6. I can do some awesome yoga moves that always amaze people.
    7. I have nice legs.
    8. I have pretty good style.

    Wow, that was a lot harder than I thought!! I struggled so much, but I managed to come up wit a few of them.

    Now onto something I like about you (smooth transition, right? maybe I should add that to my list of talents) - I love your blog, and it seems like you're so genuinely passionate about spreading positivity! I think all of your posts are really inspiring, and I'd love to get to know you, because you seem like such a genuine and nice person :)
