Personal Inventories:

In order to boost our own self esteem it is important that we recognize our own good qualities. In order to do this we start by making personal inventories of our positive characteristics. Then we add the personal accomplishments that we have achieved. When we combine this list with an understanding of how others perceive us, we will begin to see the whole of who we are.

In other words, it’s time to get your pen and paper out and start listing all of your good qualities. Make sure you do not stop until you have filled at least a page, go down to the minutest detail if you have to. Be sure to list all the good things about yourself. For example, “I am a very kind person”, “I am very gentle with others” and so on down the list. These are all your personal strengths and as a result, listing them will make you see visually how important you are to the world. Therefore, it will help you realize that you are a part of the greater picture.

Now that you have this wonderful list of your good qualities take the time to read it over and over through out the next week. As a result, each “I am” statement of your good qualities will re-affirm to yourself that you are a person of worth and that you are valuable to others.

“I choose to feel good about myself!”

Today’s Photograph:

I chose this hand tinted photo of oranges in  an orange tree because it highlights some of the beautiful characteristics of this fruit. The bright orange of the citrus is contrasted by its support system of leaves and branches. The simple tinted overlay has isolated the oranges – similar to a personal inventory.
