What are your favorite things about yourself?

Gigi photographer

Have you ever noticed, myself included how when someone gives you a compliment you downplay the compliment as a way not to seem full of yourself? Why is that?

Do you have conversations like this:

Friend- “You look really good, you lost weight!”

Me- “No Way, I’m at an all time high hahahaha.”


Friend- “Your curls are jamming!”

Me- “No, look at this part right here, it is all dry.”


Friend- “I love your shoes!”

Me- “These old things…”


Friend- “Your makeup looks good”

Me- “Oh no, I have on a ton of concealer on , see look at all this discoloration…”

So I started thinking about this, not accepting compliments, especially  genuine ones. We all know the other kind like…

Friend- “Oh my goodness, you have lost a TON of weight- What did you do?”


Friend- “Do you ever get your hair DONE?”


Friend- “You should really look into BOTOX, it would take years off you!”

So I’m going to take a moment to share what I love about myself, no apologies.

  1. I love that I have embraced my natural hair and after many hours and numerous concoctions later, I have it down.

  2. I’m proud that I have reinvented myself and that I am pursuing my passion- photography.


3. I love that I am an open book and that the older I get the more authentic I am…4. I love that I always look for the good in every situation and everyone.

5. I love meeting new people.

What do you love about yourself? Are you a good friend? A great parent? Are you a natural athlete ?  This is your time to share… I’d love to know.
