    Goal one: no spending month- only buy needs not wants.
    Goal two: clear out my clothes- I have so much that I don't wear anymore. Need to donate to charity
    Goal three: drink more water daily!

    First thing I like about myself: I am a good listener. I like to listen and help other people and I like to listen to stories.

    Second thing I like about myself: I appreciate the small things. Give me a flower, I'll love it. Say hello to me, and I'll say it back and smile.
     
    Third thing I like about myself: I'm empathetic. I understand hard times, struggles etc

    Great thread Green tea!

    I love that can make people smile when they're having a bad day. 

    I'm trust worthy and people come to talk to me about all sorts. 


    I have a good sense of humour :)

    Went for a walk round town! If that counts
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
