Day 409 ~ #2 of My 30 Days of Truth

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 02 : Something you love about yourself.
So as much as I had the day to think about this... the same quality came coming up...

What I love about myself?  

Hands down...

I love helping others.  Helping ... being able to give of myself in that way...well all I can say is that there is no better feeling than that!

Whether it be picking something up for someone, carrying a package, opening a door or even taking the elevator back up to the 18th floor because just as we reached the lobby you realized you needed to go to the restroom... (the only restroom available would be the one on the floor we were just on).. yup... you can count on me to accompany you.

It really isn't any trouble.  I just think that I would one day like someone to help me when I need it.  After someone says thank you... I tell them "your welcome" and ask them to please pay it forward.

So to answer the question of what I love about myself... I love helping others.

what's next? ...
Day 01 : Something you hate about yourself.
Day 03 : Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 : Something you have to forgive someone for.

I know what your saying. Some people think it is a ego based self serving thing to say but I can't see how. I have this feeling when I help others that just makes me feel worthy of living. I was a surrogate mother twice, helped make a couple a family and it was just the most amazing feeling to be able to help them when no one else could or would.
