Things I Like About Me

I've decided to link up with Elena over at Just Be Enough and participate in "Things I Like About Me". I, as I'm sure most of you do, have a tendency of pointing out my flaws or the areas that I am lacking. I believe this is a great way for me personally celebrate what makes me unique, what makes me proud, what makes me feel awesome, what makes me Tenecia!



1. I won't back down.
*I often call myself a pitbull. If there is something I believe in, I latch onto it and will not back away from supporting it.

2. I expect the world of my friends because they can expect the world from me.
*I have always been VERY selective of my friends. It's hard for me to trust others but when I do, I do it whole-heartedly & passionately. I am fiercely loyal & supportive of my friends. I don't feel like there is anything wrong with me expecting the same from them.

3. I am not afraid to take off my earrings & bracelets and fight dirty.
*Seriously. Do not piss me off. Do not harm, disrespect, or talk sh!t about anyone that I love/care about. I will take off my earrings and it will be on!

4. I am not afraid of saying "I don't know".
*Yes, I'm a librarian. Yes, my brain is full of random bits of information. Yes, I know what reference resources will help you answer certain questions. BUT, there are questions that I don't know the answer to and I'm woman enough to admit when I don't have the answer. 'Nuff said.

5. My arms.
*I lift hard and I lift heavy. My arms can wrap themselves around The Princess and show her that I love her to the moon & back. My arms can lift my daughter's wheelchair in & out of the car without assistance. My arms can carry multiple bags of groceries in one trip from the car to the house. My arms look great in sleeveless clothing. #yeahisaidit

6. My tattoos.
*Each one tells a story. Each one is marker on the map of my life. Each one is a piece of my soul.

7. I would rather be told that I'm intelligent or funny versus pretty or attractive.
*I have this thing about looks...I have always felt that mine were average....no big deal...I was ok with that. However, I always felt like my level of intelligence was slightly higher than those around me. I hope that doesn't sound cocky but it's true. Then you add to that my ability to tell a joke or make you laugh with my sarcasm. That's a deadly combo, folks! :)

There you have it. The things I like about me. I think everyone should take a moment, embrace what you like about you, and share it.

So, what's on your list?

  1. Girl, the more I read, the more I relate!
    I'm teeny (by most standards) but I'm a pit bull.
    Also, I expect as much from my friends as I expect that I would give to them... My tattoos, well, I <3 them and have planned them, drawn them, and expect that everyone knows they are a piece of my soul, lol. I want my arms to be envied, like Tracy Bodner or Dana Linn Bailey.... Okay, that may never happen, but a girl can dream.......................Now, you're making me think about things that I like about me and that's not comfortable for me, lol....

  9. I like how little I am, I like my round shoulders, I like my balls-to-the-wall personality, the amount I give to those I love, and my hair. I really dig having good hair.
