A renaissance gal passionista and her amazing family.

In my Homeschool research today – I came across This Adventure Life with some fabulous forms and info that I am truly excited about. In my search for secular resources, it can be daunting to constantly run across information with a religious view/perspective only.

When I do find secular resources I am ecstatic to find other brave, unique, intelligent families out there who homeschool secularly – and often they teach many religions from an academic viewpoint.

While looking through This Adventure Life, she mentioned another blog, SmrtLernins where she called for  us to:

Really, have you looked at yourself lately? Have you taken a moment to consider your many amazing qualities?

And asked us to fill in the following so we will

“remember that you, the unique and remarkable you, are an amazing person.”

So… I will 🙂

1. Make a list of five amazing, beautiful physical qualities about yourself. Don’t couch them in an insult (“I look good for my age” or “I have nice legs for an overweight person“). You have at least five beautiful things about you, I guarantee. If you can’t see them immediately, this is your opportunity to search for them. Find those five amazing things about your appearance and list them.

  • I have great eyebrows.
  • I have a pretty, bright smile
  • I like my nose
  • I have cute piggy toes
  • I have delicate hands with great natural fingernails

2. Make a list of five amazing things about your mind. Don’t couch them in an insult (“I’m smart for someone who never finished college“). You have at least five incredible things going on up your head. If you can’t think of them immediately, this is your chance to discover them. Find those five amazing things about your mind and list them.

  • I love to learn and research new info/idea/thoughts
  • I am creative
  • I am naturally organized and detail-oriented
  • I learn quickly and am self-taught on many topics
  • I love words and learning new vocabulary

3. Make a list of five amazing things you have accomplished. Don’t couch them in an insult (“I’ve accomplished a lot for someone with children“). You have accomplished at least five spectacular things in your life. If they don’t spring immediately to mind, take this time to remember them. Find those five amazing accomplishments and list them.

  • I finished Air Force basic training and Morse Code tech school
  • I gave birth to two healthy, brilliant, talented children
  • I educated myself on depression and worked to bring myself from the darkness to the life I have today.
  • I started community theatre at 23, after years of being too scared to attempt it – and now I have a great local acting resume
  • I volunteer with the Karen Weidinger Foundation‘s annual 5K (for 2 years now) helping to raise money for local breast cancer patients

What a great way to realize that I don’t always have to have “auto-negative-comments” on when I talk to myself.

What would you write? Share here if you like 🙂

Big Thanks to This Adventure Life and SmrtLernins
