I like the fact that I have a good relationship with The Boy, that despite my many parental shortcomings, I have never lied to him and he has never doubted my love for him. I promised him those two things before he was even born and those are two promises I've kept.
I like that I still tear up when I hear of tornadoes ripping their way through cities or puppies being put to sleep because no one wanted them. I like that I haven't lost that tender part of myself yet.
I like that I can still giggle and that once I start giggling, I find it hard to stop.
I like that I haven't grown stagnant. I'm still learning and growing.
I like that I'm never satisfied with myself and constantly trying to do a little more, a little better.
I like that I can finally identify some things I like about myself. I even almost like the fact that I can't identify any of them without also identifying the downside that goes along with each of them.
