Are you up for a little challenge?

We all feel insecure about ourselves sometimes. I know I do. So I've thought of a nice little game/meme/journal thingy to spread some Love. This time, it's not about Love for others. It's about Love for Yourself. You don't have to be perfect. No one is, and frankly perfection is boring. You are you, and that is fine. 

If you find this challenge difficult, don't worry. To be honest I had to think quite hard to find enough things I like about Me. I've now written them down, and every time I feel a bit down I recite them to myself ^^ Don't think about it too much: Write down whatever comes to mind.


So how does this work? 

I want you to make a journal (or a deviation), and write down a list of 11 things you like about yourself. You can write anything you like, however #11 must always be the same: "I am Me".  

When you're done, feel free to leave a link here, or mention me so I get notified. I'd love to see it. I'm not a big tagger, but feel free to tag anyone you feel needs some more Self Love ^^


So, here's my list!

1. I am quite smart
2. I am curious (inquisitive)
3. I am a bit weird
4. I am sort of pretty (I think)
5. I am creative
6. I am a loving person
7. I am a good friend
8. I like to see the good in people
9. I am open minded
10. I like to be on time
11. I am Me


I love deviantART!

Aw, this is great! It's a very nice way to keep a positive attitude. If you ever hit a wall, just get back to this, read it, and get back on track. Nice!
"I am a bit weird." I suppose we're all a bit weird though, since everyone is unique. And weird is just another word for unique. xD
Thanks for sharing this. I'll do it if I ever need some confidence back. :D

Yep, that's the idea :D Well, I really am a bit weird, haha. But like you say, everyone is a bit weird, we're just all weird in a different way. Good thing too, life would be so boring if everyone was the same.

Copy the 'fav' link you find on the right side of the screen under 'Details' when you're on a deviation/journal page to mention a deviation.
To mention a deviant type @-name without the - (for example @-ikeofthedusk) :)

How did you write the link in your journal? I've been trying to figure out how to 'rename' links that way for ages :p
Ikeofthedusk's avatar
IkeoftheduskStudent Artisan Crafter
Hello Iduna ! Sorry for the late reply ! 

Thanks for the explanation ! I'll try to do this next time =O 

For the link, you just need to click ''Add media'' and on the top of the page you'll see ''Link'' you put your link here and just onder you wrote the title of this page. Press enter (or ok I forget =P
And it will appear on the text =3
