Day 14: Describe something you like about yourself.
“…and then again when I’m looking mean and impressive.”
Zora Neale Hurston (1927)
In other words, I like my dimensions–not physical though those are cool–but that I am not, don’t have or feel the need to be any one thing at any given time to anyone.
I like being me, am glad to have lived long enough to say that honestly and hope to die still believing it.
I appreciate my imperfections, get anxious about the journey, and am sometimes more calculating and decisive than I should be. I am stubborn, impatient, and beat myself up for that among other things. On the other hand I take Ms. Faye’s cue sometimes: It’s okay to be awesome.
I like that I know how to be still. That I know how to know and how to be completely unequivocally, humanly ignorant.
I guess what I like about me, in short, is that I’m okay with being not all the way okay.
