Have you ever hear of Ten on Tuesday? It is a blog that puts up a prompt for each Tuesday and then you complete it and link your post to it. And they have been doing so since 2004. Today the list of ten has to do with bragging about yourself. I completed the list and then thought that this would be a great activity for anyone going through the self abusing minds that infertiles have at times. Or, anyone, for that matter.
Here is my list:
Time to Brag: 10 Awesome Things About You
1) I love my freckles
2) I love my age
3) I recycle with a passion, especially clothes
4) I am emotionally dependable
5) I am extremely supportive and open minded
6) I cherish my friends and family
7) I have the best jobs/careers ever
8) I can see the big picture and long term, yet take daily action9) I just got a gorgeous tattoo today (My FIRST)
10) I am gentle with myself
When I checked the comments section, I was a bit taken aback by how many people had a hard time with this activity. People even said that they had to call in some help and ask others what was so great about them. Now, obviously, my ego is pretty huge to admit that this was my favorite list that I’ve completed so far. I haven’t been playing along for that long. The one from a few weeks ago about songs that make you cry? Um, I couldn’t even think about that one without crying so I decided not to do it.
If you decide to play along with this week’s list, let me know. For next week, you’re supposed to list ten movies that you like to quote from. I don’t know where the ideas come from but they are varied enough to get me thinking outside of my own range of routine thoughts.
