I sort of feel like I should start this post with some sort of disclaimer, like “oh, I’m just writing this because I have to. Please allow me to apologize for thinking highly of myself” but, you know what?, bull shit on that. No apologies here for thinking that there are some things about me that are quite likeable indeed.
I think the thing that I love most about myself is that I try to be very intentional about taking care of the people I love and care about. I think I’m a good friend, a good mom and a good wife. I fall short sometimes but I feel certain that the people I am close with would say that I am overt about letting them know I care. I feel profoundly grateful to have a very drama free marriage and exceedingly drama free friendships and I try to make sure that I take care of those relationships as best as I can.
I’m also genuinely curious about people so I think I am also good at making people that I’ve just met feel comfortable. My husband is the best person I’ve ever met in terms of being able to talk to anyone but I think I’m almost as good as he is (you should invite us over for a dinner party, we are excellent dinner party guests). I hope that people who meet me feel welcomed and like they were treated with hospitality and curiosity (in a good way).
