Tooting that Horn!

A date thingy? Ah! Calendar

January 2013

Day 38. Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.

Like most people, I’m much more comfortable declaring my faults than hyping the positives. I seem to parp rather than toot, that’s a fact. So what do I do? I thought, whilst pondering this specific question of the day. What piece of information could I impart on the readers that shows a side of me I seldom have the time to even bother about.

Okay, I had to dig deep in the old storage boxes and found the smallest sheet of paper with the following tidbit of self-appreciation.

Do you know what it is? No. Well, the most favourite thing about myself is…

Yes, you heard it, my most favourite thing is, I have an uncanny ability to love my faults. There, I’ve said it and I feel tremendously better for it now. Thanks Daily Post for getting me to admit the positive side of me.




  1. I like your blog, glad I found you through the Daily Prompt! I have a DIL from UK, that’s where I get all my Britishisms, much to her dismay, I think!

    Yes…I’d like to know what DIL is too! Parp rather than toot-like it! Wish I could love my faults! 😉

    This is an inspiring post which has inspired the following:

    I am…..just as I am. That’s the simple part. Understanding myself might get a little more difficult, and certainly others around me may have even a more difficult time understanding me.

    I, like many, come complete with flaws, and idiosyncrasies. The knowledge as I take a good look that there is, room for improvement. The willingness I have to, continually change for the better.

    All said, all done, it’s just me. I like the whole ever changing package as it strives to be just as accepting of others who, just like me, may have a few flaws, and idiosyncrasies.
