Topic : What I love about me...
MumBum - `10` `2012-08-15 18:03:07`  
I was thinking today that we often are free to compliment each other but are often so critical of ourselves.So, I thought it would be uplifting to share 5 (or more if you want) things that we love about ourselves!Oh and don't cheat by saying "I'm a great Mum/Partner/daughter etc" or "I cook a great pie etc"...I mean 5 things that are part of what makes you "you"...C'mon ladies (and gents) give yourselves a well deserved pat on the back!

I'm tolerant of more than most people, I'm virtually impossible to embarrass, I'm totally there for my friends, I can laugh at myself (and often need to), I'm real in that I'm spontaneous, genuine and empathetic.

HAHA you guys made me laugh out loud while reading this! And yes it is a great topic, as I sit here now I cant remember the last time I said something nice about myself, so here I go.....

I like to laugh and make people laugh.

I'm extremely intuitive.

I am very loyal and as a result have a loyal, close group of friends and family around me.

I am totally focussed and driven to get my qualifications done, and nothing, not even surprise pregnancies, will stand in my way!

And I am a total pool shark and love taking people's money when they underestimate my awesomness! And I would die a horrible death at a scrabble game, but thats ok cause I prefer Monopoly anyway!!!

MUMBUM!!!! Your right, that was empowering! Thanking you!

Forget it ekubo, you're a school teacher... challenge a teacher (who is a grammatically correct one at that!) to a game of Scrabble!? I'll do that right after I challenge the local banker to a game of Monopoly... geez!Hmmmm maybe "Sarcasm is my middle name" should have been on my list too!lol

OOoh I love scrabble, can we play it online here somehow?

What a fab topic!

Here goes... deep breath....

1. I have a fantastic work ethic

2. I am fiercely determined

3. I am loyal

4. I strive to be as honest as I can be, within the realms of good taste and kindness

5. I am smart

challenge you to a game of scrabble!!!

Sarcasm is my middle name
I'm sooooo laid back I'm almost upside down
I'm a board game connoisseur
I can spell connoisseur ... and a lot of other words
I can make my kids laugh like no one else

LOL Mamabear... it must be altogether very interesting when you're showering at your house! :-)

I'm a good listener, I'm very faithful, I have a good sense of humour, I am quite optimistic, and I'm the best bathroom singer in the whole world!
ekubo - 12:44 PM Thu-16-Aug-2012

I'm also extremely modest mumbum!


I was just thinking tho, that most of the things I like about myself are also at the root of most of my worst faults. Oops that goes against the grain of the thread doesn't it. Stay positive.


Gotta say your sense of humour is evident in your blogs mumbum. Looking forward to the next one.

thecoffeelady - 10:59 AM Thu-16-Aug-2012

Okey dokey....

I find humour in everything

I'm very loyal

I'm tired (oh whoops sorry, late night last night.....)

I love helping people out wherever I can

I'm very hard to offend, easygoing however you put it.

MumBum - 8:33 AM Thu-16-Aug-2012
See ladies, doesn't it feel good to think about the good stuff for a change and you're right cherrytf, it's a good way to get to know people better... of course from her posts, I already knew that ekubo is clever! ;-) xxx
ekubo - 9:18 PM Wed-15-Aug-2012


I'm clever

I'm pretty relaxed most of the time and take things as they come

I'm inventive

I have a wicked sense of the rediculous

I'll go the extra to help people out.

cherrytf - 6:46 PM Wed-15-Aug-2012
Good on ya, MumBum. This is a great idea. Nice to know you more.

As for me, I'm almost always cheerful and as long as I've had my cup of Joe, full of energy, too. I'm a good listener, quite sociable, and witty, too.
MumBum - 6:07 PM Wed-15-Aug-2012
Since I started this, I'll go first... What I love about me (in no particular order) is:my sense of humour, that I am as quick to apologise as I am to forgive, my generally positive attitude, that I am not phased by much at all and I am fiercely loyal.That actually felt good! :-)
