Thirteen Things about Anias Nin

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

13 Things I Like About Myself (this is going to be hard)
1. I'm patient (to a point but mostly patient).
2. I like my hair. I think it's pretty.
3. I think I'm pretty good at interior decorating. I like that about myself. According to my I.Q. test, I'm supposed to be at or above genius-level when it comes to visual spacing, which is cool.
4. I'm fairly intelligent and can hold a decent conversation on almost any topic (well I don't know that much about politics but I can make fun of my fair share of politicians).
5. I think I write well. I think when I write I can communicate my thoughts into words well and creatively. Of course, I could always be better, but right now, I'm satisfied with where I am where writing is concerned.
6. I read a lot. I think that is a good quality about myself. Lately, most of the people I meet don't read at all or have only read 3 or 4 books in their life (aside from the ones they had to read in school and only half-assed read those). This is so weird to me.
7. I'm kind.
8. I'm spiritual.
9. I'm a loyal person to those I love and sometimes even to those I don't love.
10. When I choose to love someone, I love them forever no matter what they do or say. For the rest of my life. I don't think that when you say you love someone you can take something like that back, unless it was a lie in the first place, I suppose. I don't think "love" is an emotion. I think it's a connection of the soul, mind and spirit and that kind of thing doesn't ever go away. You can ignore or deny it, but it will still be there in one form or another. There are many different kinds of love.
11. I try to be open-minded and tolerant of opinions, ideas and people. I don't succeed all the time. Who does? But I try and I think that's a good quality I have.
12. I'm very creative and have a wonderful imagination. I'm still working on ways to channel this, but at least I know this about myself and like this about myself.
13. I don't require a lot of money in order to be happy. For me, happiness doesn't depend on how much money I have. Of course, I have to have the basics: food, shelter, clothes...that kind of thing, but as far as expendable income, all I really like to have is enough money to go to the movies and out to see a band once in a while. (Also to buy shoes. I'm a shoe person. I can't help it.) Just to live comfortably and simply-to be content with what I have- that's what my dream for my life is. I like that part of myself.

Wow, that wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I guess I have more self-esteem than I thought I did. I was thinking that next Thursday, I would do a list of things I didn't like about myself, but now I'm not so sure. I don't know if that would be helpful or harmful. I don't want to trigger myself and I don't want to get to pity-pot-sittin'. As it is, I'm happy that I could think of 13 things I like about myself so quickly and easily. It's almost like I opened my eyes for the first time.
