25 things I like about myself today

1. I restricted myself to one cup of coffee.
2. I finally sent an email that I've been meaning to write for weeks.
3. I allowed myself to really read and, thus, really feel the comments on my blog.
4. I ate oatmeal.
5. My toenails are pink.
6. I ran three miles.
7. I found the music to last week's Grey's Anatomy.
8. The shape that my body is in.
9. I did not call Colin.
10. I did not email Colin.
11. I made time to look for jobs. Twice.
12. I am all caught up on laundry.
13. That I can listen to my gut.
14. I made nachos for dinner and didn't feel guilty about it.
15. My independent streak.
16. My decision to skip the hockey practice that nobody else was going to, anyway.
17. I left for work on time.
18. That I managed to put together a cute outfit for the gym.
19. Having the balls to call Kevin on the sly to tell him about a job I thought he might have interest in.
20. Upon realizing that my shoulders were sore from kickboxing class last night, I stretched instead of popping a painkiller.
21. I was brave enough to try a new hair product.
22. I didn't go on a Sephora binge despite browsing its website.
23. My handwriting.
24. That I made time to unwind in the steam room after my workout at the gym.
25. Ability to realize that, while this drama with Colin is in my life, it is not my entire life.

That is a great list. I think I should start writing down things I like about myself. Thanks for a great idea.

I've been thinking about your Colin issues, letting them process before I commented. In my opinion, the two of you play too many games. I don't understand why you don't know how he feels about you. It doesn't make sense to me. I think you need to be in more open communication with him than you are. Maybe that is blunt but I've been thinking that for a long time. You are only hurting yourself by not figuring out where the two of you stand.

Whatever happens, you are a great person with a lot to offer, professionally and personally. Keep your chin up.

oooh, great list A!!!

by the way, I know you said you use Indeed.com for much of your job search. I've found mlive.com to have a pretty good list, too. I'm sure you've checked it out, but just in case...

Happy Spring!

Laurie: thanks for your thoughts. Blunt is good! As much as it kills me to admit this, I'm starting to realize that this is as much my fault as it is his.

Amy: Indeed actually pulls in all of the postings from mlive.com, so I do keep up on their job postings. Not that I've had any luck. ARG!
