Fifty Things I Like About Myself

by arianne

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows that yesterday was a hard day for me. Well, I got it all out at my other blog (please go and read all about it here), and so I figured I’d keep myself focused on the positive today here at Chez To Think.

I saw Deb twitter this post, and was intrigued.  Could I really think of 50 things I liked about myself?  It’s certainly a daunting task judging by how difficult life has been for me lately.  I decided that forcing myself to write this post may just possibly smack me out of The Wallowing, and that can only be a good thing.  So, without further adieu…
