smacky30 and I were talking about imposter syndrome earlier in the week. Well, more confessing how we both experience it.

We "do" a thing by e-mail along with losingntrnslatn, when one or the other of us becomes self-critical or calls herself a name, we make her (or they make me) say three things she likes about herself. Then, inevitably, after the three things have been named, we hear "Now you..."

So, after our conversation about imposter syndrome, smacky30 suggested that at least once a week, without the self-criticism to precede it, that we would name three things we like about ourselves. It can be physical, emotional, spiritual or even something e accomplished.

It's something a lot of us can use, a little more self-acknowledgement and the chance to own all of our good qualities AND I am trying not to be such a lurker and be more active here, I thought I'd ask all of you to come play with us.

Today I will start:

1. I am compassionate
2. I am relatively self-aware
3. I am tenacious

What are three things you like about yourself?
