What Makes You Great?

· · ·

This post brought to you by Post Great Grains Cereal. All opinions are 100% mine.

When was the last time you sat down and thought about what makes YOU great? I was tasked by Post Great Grains Cereato do just that… Why is it so hard to think about what makes us great? We are all amazing human beings with no limits as to what we can accomplish in this world. But very few of us feel completely comfortable going on and on about what makes us great. I know I struggled. I am happy with who I am as a person but to sit down and make a list of “Why I Am Great” was tough! It seemed boastful and vain. But it shouldn’t be! Not at all!!! We are ALL Amazing!! We each bring so much to the table so to speak. So here’s your homework! Yep Homework!!! Sit down today and make a list of 10 reasons why you are GREAT! I want to see your list! So either comment below or if you don’t want to share it with the world… Email me! [email protected]!! I can’t wait to see those lists!

Here are my top 10 Reasons Why I am GREAT! – Dave Letterman Style! 😉

10. I am resourceful! Low budget, need to decorate something out of nothing or make a meal with only a few ingredients… I am your gal! I love being able to make what I have worked! -I think it’s my secret fantasy to be on a reality show like “Chopped” or “Craft Wars” that fuels this…

.9. I am a great Mom! I know I am not the best Mom in the world, I definitely have my #momfail moments but at the end of the day my kids know I love them and would do anything for them!

8. I am an organization junkie – I love to organize and make our lives run as smooth as possible!

7. My  Smile – I love that smiling at someone can brighten their day and can make me feel better too!

6. My Sense of Humor. I crack myself up all the time

5. My Super Human Ability to only need 5-7 hours of sleep a night. This comes in super handy as a blogger!

4. My Determination: I know if I work hard enough I can do anything!

3. My Heart I am always amazed at its capacity to love!

2. My Body: I love that I have a strong and healthy body. It’s not perfect, I’ve got cellulite and imperfections just like everyone else but it is capable and strong!

1. My Mind! I am forever amazed at what it is capable of! It’s crazy how when I plant a “thought seed” it will grow and my mind goes to mind will work and find ways to make my “thought a reality!

This list took me awhile! It was hard! I just kept telling myself…I am good enough, I am smart enough and Dog Gone It People Like Me!! 😉

Isn’t this an amazing video!! We, women, have come a long way at being better at embracing ourselves and loving who we are!

  1. I’m a little jealous of your 5-7 hours of sleep! I need at least 7 and I rarely get it. I love that you sat down and made a list of what you are great at! It’s easy to get down on ourselves about what we aren’t doing well instead of focusing on what we are great at!
