Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.
My favorite thing about myself? For a reasonable person without a ridiculously over-inflated ego, this should be a difficult task. First to find a favorite thing about ourselves, and then God forbid shout it from the rooftops.
We all know that’s not me. What’s my favorite thing about me? Is it that I’m beautiful and amazingly well-preserved for my advanced age? That I’m worshipped and adored by dozens the world over? That I’m the most compelling speaker I know? How about that I’m humble?
Of course, I kid. I’m none of those things. Least of all humble.
But today’s prompt is so appropriate for what’s on my mind today. I’ve been thinking a lot about my kids. All grown up and doing their own thing. All chasing their dreams as young adults should do. That’s all well and good. I’m proud of all of them, and I’m a lucky mom.
But I would have to say that my most favorite thing about me is my relationship with them. They still come to me for advice, include me in fun and new stuff they run across, and yes, I’m tooting here-they think I’m a badass. I even woke up this morning to see that one of them is now following me on Twitter.
I’ve been thinking about writing a post with the working title “Sons Of Cheeky Diva~ What kind of movie would that be?” I haven’t written that yet, but please stay tuned today for a different post that I have written about my relationship with my great kids. After a little tweaking, it should be ready to post.
Thanks for another great prompt idea, Michelle!!
