I absolutely adored participating in September’s #ProjectPositive challenge that the wonderful Anastasia Amour set up. I’m a generally positive person by nature, but finishing that simple sentence each day was a fantastic exercise in self-appreciation and it opened up some charming introspection. I’m almost bummed to see it come to an end, however, going back and re-reading my answers to place in this post (and write down in my journal) has been amazing. My heart is over-flowing with self-gratitude and I feel like I’m glowing with a renewed self-assurance. I urge everyone to answer the questions for yourself – starting now (don’t fret about the dates, just do one a day) and to go and check out #ProjectPositive.
I posted all of these on my Twitter (you can see the original’s there with the hashtag, as well as many others)…
September 1 – I love my face because it’s uniquely mine; hazel eyes that change at whim, a quirky dimple and a faint, sweet scar or two!
September 2 – I love my body because it’s the amazingly complex and beautiful place my spirit experiences this life in!
September 3 – I’m a great friend because I will do anything to help comfort and take care of those I adore!
September 4 – The most valuable thing I’ve learned is life is filled with lots of gray but that’s due to the light keeping the dark away.
September 5 – When I look in the mirror, I see a happy, creative woman, who loves to giggle, sparkle and enjoy each moment of life!
September 6 – I think my best quality is my rather quirky mindset and the way it views and interprets the world around me!
September 7 – The 3 words I’d use to describe myself are gentle, vivacious, and whimsical!
September 8 – I’m great at my job because I do my best to stay informed, communicative and engaged with the project and people involved.
September 9 – I’m confident that I can follow the path my heart and soul lay before me, no matter how difficult or off-beat it may be!
September 10 – My friends and family say I’m bubbly, quirkily passionate, and creative (I asked, they answered)!
September 11 – I’m lucky to have so many things – love, family, friends, a deep inner guide, a zest for living, and a desire to learn!
September 12 – I feel good about myself today because I want to. I don’t need a specific reason to feel good about being Me, I just do!
September 13 – You can always count on me for a colorfully abstract observation, viewpoint, or thought-process!
September 14 – My best physical feature is my bootie! My entire physical being is fairly spectacular though, if I do say so myself ( & I do)!
September 15 – The biggest thing I’ve overcome would be both depression and living with ADHD. I work with myself instead of against.
September 16 – What makes me happiest is being able to savor and share the simple everyday elegance’s that occur all the time.
September 17 – I contribute good to the world by spreading joy & whimsy in little ways & by living in an Earth and Life friendly way!

September 23 – The best things in my life are the small, easily overlooked things & those I hold dearest to me ~ friends, family & pets!

September 29 – My life WILL be of my own making and design!
September 30 – I am ME ~ completely & unabashedly Me!
Please embrace Yourself & some positive vibes today & everyday with #ProjectPositive!
Namaste ~ Ella
