There are times when I feel that I spend most of my posts on this blog wittering about things that I can’t do very well or things that I find difficult. Not today. Today the sun is out (at last) so I’m feeling happy and I have decided that I will talk about some of the things that I’m good at.
I tend to have a hard time accepting that there are things I can do, and do occasionally do well. I’m usually always first in line to put myself down about the smallest things and I know that is an attitude that won’t get me very far in life and that needs to change. So I’m going to start right here, right now by listing some things that I feel are my strengths.
Ready? Let’s go:
- Talking: Everyone who knows me will tell you straight away that I can talk the hind legs off a donkey. I love meeting people and hearing their stories. It’s one of the many reasons that I decided to study journalism.
- Making tea I seem to spend most of my time drinking tea these days so I would hope I make a good cuppa. Practice makes perfect, right?
- Motivating people
- Time keeping
- Trying new things
- Pointing out things I need to improve on, and accepting that everyone has something they want to be better at
As you can see, I haven’t put down any major physical activities on the list, but I’m sure there must be some, I just can’t think of what they are right now. Due to my Cerebral Palsy I find a lot of things that require lots of movement (like DYI, for example) hard, but no one can do everything. No human anyway. I might not be a professional sports woman but does it really matter when I have confidence in my abilities to do the things on the above list?
What are you good at doing?
