30 Days: Day 15 Something you love about yourself

…See the whole list here…

I apologize for the lateness of this post, but it is due to the Jewish High Holiday: Rosh Hashanah. In other words, I was at a family dinner and didn’t get home until after 11pm.

Hmmm, something I love about myself. Is this physical, mental, or emotional? I suppose that’s totally up to me, right? What about all three?

The physical part I love about myself is my eyes. They are super blue when I wear blue anything or greenish when I wear green. I’m told they change colors depending on my mood but I’ve never seen it happen! Even though we all learned in high school science that blue is a recessive gene, the Benaim Blue is extremely dominant. Both my brothers and I have the exact shade of blue that my father has… and mom has brown eyes. My grandfather had the exact same shade as well.

The mental part? Probably my perseverance. When I decided to go back to school for my Masters degree in 2005, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It took me 5 years to graduate, taking 2 classes in both spring and fall semesters every year. The only summer term I took was my final full year. I met some great people along the way and learned a lot about myself in the process. Namely that my time management skills suck hard core, I work better in groups, and liked my technology classes far better than my statistics classes. It doesn’t hurt that my further education and intelligence are two of Steve’s favorite things about me.

The emotional part? Well, I used to be an emotional girl. These days, not so much. I can talk about everything and nothing at the same time, but when it comes down to the hardcore topics, I suck. I am apparently getting better at this.
