Day 5–Write three positive words you feel your closest friends would use to describe you.
Those who know me best have seen me grow from an angry, resentful, self-loathing woman into a less angry (because I learned to let go of the anger), less resentful (because I learned resentment is a luxury I can’t afford), self-accepting, generally more positive person.
My real friends know I’m open to new things, whether it’s a Buddhist sitting I skeptically went to once that somehow became a monthly must on my to-do list, taking in an opera, getting up to sing at karaoke, or board game night at a dive bar.
They may be dazzled and amazed by it, they may secretly say “Really, who does she think she is,” but everyone who knows me knows I don’t leave the house in sweatpants and sneakers. I may live in my jeans 90% of the time, but there will be designer tops, heels, a fabulous bag. Is it vanity on my part…oh hell yeah, I don’t deny that.
