You've been tagged!

That's right! You've been tagged.
If you are reading this, or if you are on my links, or if you are on the links of some-one who is on my links then write down 5 things that you love about you. Or love about what you've done. I know I should go first, but it's gonna take a while to come up with five....Ok OK OK!

1) I love my thoughtfulness. I love that I see the world in that light. I can see what people need, or what would help them through the day. I love my compassion towards the world. There is a great scene in the film 'adaptation' and the dorky brother says to the other one, that he judges his success not by the people who have said yes to him, but by the quality of people he has loved. And similarly, my compassion towards others is not about being recognised, or acknowledged, but simply feeling and doing.

2) I love my eyes. I have big brown eyes, with long lashes and the left one is half green. My Mum used to call it a sparkle. Some people have called it the evil eye. Hee hee.

3) I love my hands. My hands are tiny and thin and look really old but they are so capable. They have built a house, and thrown endless pots on the wheel, they have climbed up rockfaces, and changed many a nappy, they have held and loved and clapped, and typed so many letters and ideas, designed logos, played music on many instruments, handcrafted creams, made cakes and moulded mud cakes. They are good hands.

4) Wow number four already. This isn't as hard as I thought.
I love the way I respect children. I love the way I bring up my daughter. I mean I'm sure I screw it up daily, but I also know that the way I love her, and the kids around me will change their lives and that I am contributing to a new consciousness on the planet. Good kids these ones.

5) I love my heart. I love that I am listening to my heart, finally. Getting out of my head space, that was always so goddamned rational and appropriate, and doing what feels right. Even if it goes against what my head 'thinks' is the right things to do. And my life is changing and I am doing things that have never even occurred to me before. And it feels so good.

So come on guys, let's start the new year with being aware of all the things that make us unique and great. And love to you all.

Identity Crisis: I have been to New Zealand and the whole trip felt like I was in a Zorb, but that's another very long story.

Jade and Jenna: Sound Vain! Go on! The whole point is to celebrate what you love about yourself and want to share. Be bold, and brave.

Ah finally! I've been away, so I didn't even know what the topic was until today. I've made up for my tardiness with a few extra ones.

Thanks Suze!
