Dear Angel, I finally found a

Dear Angel,
I finally found a nutritionist, who is trained in psychology, too, and she gave me the same homework as yours!

Whiling away my time in a beautiful, old fashioned cafe in Vienna I came up with this list:

1. I am a caring person.
2. I can listen well to others.
3. I can empathize with other people.
4. I am willing to help other people when they need support.
5. I am quite self-sufficient and independent in most areas of life.
6. I am an enthusiastic person.
7. I am a warm person.
8. I have a good sense for beauty and can create a beautiful atmosphere in a room, so that I and other people feel well.
9. I can make other people feel comfortable and very often they open up about themselves fairly quickly.
10. I love to smile (and have been told quite often by others, that I have a beautiful smile).
11. I am a very honest person.
12. I am not superficial.
13. If I really want something, I can stick to it and give it my all and mostly succeed in getting it in the end (well, except for recovery so far).
14. I am courageous and dare to expose myself to situations I haven't experienced before.
15. I like to try new things.
16. I am easily intrigued and love to learn about people and stuff.
17. I have a good sense of humor and can make other people laugh (although I probably don't come across like this from my posts here).
18. I can easily approach other people and connect with them even if I don't know them.
19. I have a good sense for rhythm and am a good dancer.
20. I have a very precise inner voice, that most of the time leads me in the right direction (if I don't ignore it).
21. I am not lazy, but an active person and am willing to go the extra mile if need be.
22. I have very soft skin.
23. I am a creative person and can sew nice things and clothes, paint a picture, draw, write a poem (and am in the process of writing a short story), do a collage, take pictures and arrange a room in a beautiful way.
24. I am a good cook and already cooked multi-course menus several times, which were praised by the people I cooked for.
25. I am a very practical person.
26. I can improvise easily in various areas of life and come up with solutions on the fly.
27. I never go to an invitation empty handed, but always bring a small thing for the host.
28. I always make sure to thank a host after an invitation (which often causes astonishment, but also pleasure for the person in question).
29. I give presents to people if I feel like doing so, even if there is no special event like a birthday or Christmas.
30. I have learned to say no to people or situations I don't feel comfortable with, i.e. "friendships" that are solely based on me giving and the other person receiving. I can say good bye to those people without looking back and without regret.
31. I am able to realize fairly quickly how someone ticks.
32. I, too, like my dark brown eyes.

I have to admit, it feels pretentious and very strange to brag about myself like this, but I do need to learn to see the positive in me and not only the negative. Well, once you get into the swing, it's quite fun actually - as you can see from the amount of points on this list!

Now it's your turn, Angel! I'm looking forward to your list!

My 3rd was - i am always 5 mins early rather than 5 mins late

But your right, its good to focus on something positive about yourself and especially points that arnt based on physical features
