Thursday Three: When I Look in the Mirror, I Like My....

Today over at the Sisterhood, Lisa asked us to lift ourselves up, focus on the positives, and answer her this:  When I look in the mirror, what is it that I like or love about what I see?  I think many of us who struggle with weight and body image spend too much time focusing on the negatives.  I love that Lisa is asking us to reverse that thinking, at least for today. 

So what is it that I love about myself?  For me, this one was actually pretty easy.

I love my eyes.  They are this amazing green color with flecks of gold. 

I also love my nose.  It is small and cute and perfectly proportioned to my face.  See that little mole on the side of my nose?  My mom had one in the exact same place and because of that, I always feel a connection to her even though she's been gone for over 20 years.

I'm also a big fan of my hair.  It is thick, but not too thick, and I can wear it straight or with a bit of wave.  It is finally getting to a length that I love.  Here it is at the end of the night tonight, all messy, and I still love it. 

Thanks, Lisa, for getting us to find some light in the darkness many of us often see. 

So what do you all love about yourselves?  I'd love to hear what you have to say.
