Strengths? Me? Really? Huh

I think it may be time for me to take myself a little more seriously and to say nicer things to myself.  I seem to have taken belittling myself too far.  I want to believe there are good things about me.  I have a plaque on a wall which includes the phrase "Own your talent."  Whatever my talents are, I don't think I should laugh them off.

One quality of mine worth appreciating is my decorating taste.  I was sitting at my dining room table today facing a very chatty man who was there to give an estimate on painting the outside of our house.  As I sat, fighting off death, I noticed that I really like the decorations, sideboard and wall colour in the dining room.  I felt like someone else must have chosen it all as it looked so good.  It was me though and I guess I have some success in that area.

It is hard for me to leave the above paragraph in.  I will try.  I will also try to focus on good things I can find about myself and thus know what qualities I can use and share in the world.

I guess another strength is surviving hour and a half paint estimating sessions with chatty people.  The guy was nice but I suffered.  That's one strength I hope I don't have to use again anytime soon.
