This week, I think, is going to be the most challenging one of the Gratitude Challenge. Be Grateful for Who You Are. Focus on yourself, the instructions say. Appreciate and give thanks for your unique personality, skills and talents.
But nice girls don't do that. We're supposed to be humble, not go on about how great we are, let alone blog about it. No wonder girls have problems with self esteem.
Today I'm going so say To Hell with Humility, give a shout out to myself and force you all to watch a video of ME doing something I'm proud of. No, I didn't promote world peace or reform health care or land a six-figure salary. I stayed up on a Shred Sled long enough for Alfie to videotape me. And when you consider that I couldn't even last two seconds the first time I tried it, and that I was too afraid to try, I think it's a pretty darn awesome feat.
Okay, I won't be seeking out any halfpipes anytime soon. But at least my kids can be proud that their old lady ain't no wuss.
