Journal Day #10

Journal Day #10 - What Am I Good At?
Prompt:  Quite simply, what are you good at?  All of us have particular strengths - what are yours?  This week, talk about these talents, big or small.  Ideas: discuss how you use these things in your daily life or job, how you discovered a knack for this or that, perhaps even touch on whether or not you are passionate about the things you're good at.

I had to think about this one for awhile.  What am I good at, what are my strengths?  I think it's hard to look at yourself and see those things, especially in a world where we seem to be focused on the flaws.  I like the way Danielle at Sometimes Sweet shared hers in a list so I'm going to do the same:
  • I'm loyal.  If you are my close family or close friend (and not completely off your rocker) I have your back.  Chances are even if you are completely off your rocker I'd still have your back.
  • I'm a good listener.  I am not a huge fan of talking about myself, but I am great at listening to other people and (hopefully) offering helpful advice.
  • I'm reliable.  I may procrastinate, and have some trouble prioritizing, but if something needs to be done I will get it done.  I'm also never late.
  • I'm silly.  I try not to take myself too seriously, and I like to be goofy.
I'd like to believe these strengths make me a good person to have around both personally and professionally.

Thank you for the prompt Sometimes Sweet!


  1. I like your list! These are all such important qualities to have in a friend.

    1. Thanks Jade! :) Hey, are you back? Did you have a great time?!

    2. I'm not back yet… I got to Hawaii on Monday the 28th, and I'm here until May 7th. The weather here is amazing and the water is so warm and delightful! Having a great time so far. Got pretty sick right before we got to Hawaii (stopped in CA first to visit family and picked up a cold) - God's way of slowing me down, perhaps? It's forced us to actually 'rest', so I'm actually grateful for a little cold. :)

    3. I've been reading your posts-I need to go comment but I'm trying to be good while at work ;) I hope you made some great memories! Also, hope you are feeling better! ;)
