Sometimes You Just Need a Pick-Me-Up

Sometimes, when I start feeling down, or feeling like a failure at something, I have to stop and take a mental breather.  And just remind myself that even though something may not be going well at this moment, I am still awesome and there's no reason to sit around and mope.  

So here's my list of 15 reasons why I'm awesome. Just in case I forget sometimes.

1)  I'm a good listener.  One good thing about being pretty quiet is that you develop great listening skills.  And you also learn the fine line of knowing when to let someone vent and not offer your own opinion or try to help them "fix" stuff.  

2)  I can do this:

3)  I can speak another language besides English.  Bet you can't guess what it is. No, it's not Spanish. 

4)  I love to laugh and make other people laugh.  Joking around with my faves is one of my favorite pastimes!

5)  I have a really good memory.  

6)  I have the most awesome family.  Being surrounded by awesome people obviously makes me more awesome. 

7)  I know the lyrics to just about every single rap/hip hop song known to man.  Clearly an awesome skill to have.  Especially at parties, paired with a teeny bit of alcohol and my less-than-awesome dance moves. ;) 

8)  I give great massages. 

9)  I'm pretty resourceful.  I like to try and figure things out on my own before asking for help.  

10)  I'm still a kid at heart.  I don't take things too seriously.  I like to have fun. I dislike grump-a-lumps.  

11)  Even though I'm short and have short legs, I can walk really, really fast.  Seriously.  I challenge you to a speed-walk duel. I'm totally going to be one of those old ladies you see speed-walking at the mall with her 2 lb pink dumbbells. Just kidding, no I won't, I'm allergic to exercise. 

12)  I'm a cheap date.  A bag of store-bought popcorn, a movie from OnDemand and I'm good to go.  This makes me awesome because we're always broke, so we don't have to spend a lot of money to have a good time. 

13)  I can multi-task like nobody's business.  Cook dinner, entertain the boys, fold laundry, talk to hubs on the phone all at the same time.  

14)  I like to stay as organized as possible amidst the chaos of my life.  Planners, iPhone reminders, etc.  I also love to make lists. Exhibit A, this post that you're reading right now.  Oh and this one, too.  

15)  My favorite word is "awesome." So that pretty much seals the deal right there. 

Tell me something that makes you awesome!

  1. This is so great, sometimes we all need to remind ourselves just how great we really are

  2. I love this! And I love you! You are totally awesome. I'll remind you. :)

  3. I think I just love you more now since you said the word "GRUMP A LUMP" HAHAHA that is bad ass!!! I think your awesome qualities are amazing!!!!

    I would say my number 1 quality is to also make my friends and family laugh...I have a sarcastic sense of humor and I tend to try to incorporate it in my daily routines. LOL

    xo HUGS

  4. You are awesome! DUH! I could've told you that!!!

  5. What a great list of things that make you awesome =)

  6. This is great and a great idea to have a list when we need a little reminder of who we are and how special we are. I am special because I am still alive and learning. Yeah!

  7. Uhh this is freaky. With every new number I was like oh that's the same as me. Especially the listener, massaging, fast walker, cheap dates ones.

  8. You ARE awesome!! I love this post

  9. Great post. It did make me smile.

  10. I agree, YOU ARE AWESOME! :)

  11. Amen, awesome friend. And again, we have tons in common! I love the cheap date one the most. "People" are always saying we should spice up our relationships and our love lives, what if we just really like watching our favorite show with our hubbies and some popcorn??

  12. I have to agree with you- YOU ARE AWESOME! What great post! I love that you are finding the positive about yourself- especially if/when- you need it! It's so easy to get ourselves down in the dumps, but, it's awesome to have a "fall back" pick me up too. Thanks for sharing this, Mia. Oh, if you ever need someone else to remind you...hit me up...I'll always tell you that you're awesome :) XO

  13. I love #7. You might be surprised to know that I occasionally will bust out some rap lyrics. This is awful and I can't believe I'm writing this, but I do actually know the words to Put It In My Mouth. Oh my goodness, don't tell Pinky!!!
    You are awesome lady!!


Roses are red, violets are blue, you know what's awesome? Getting comments from YOU!
