I was telling one of the guys that I work with about my project. He offered me something to write about.
I almost took it thinking ah ha now I don’t have to spend ages trying to figure out what I like about myself, but that’s not the point of this exercise it is. So here I am sat in Costa trying to figure out the third thing I like about me, and it’s hard I’m starting to feel the pressure.
But more importantly I’m starting to notice how hard I am on myself, like I always knew, but that I struggle to think of a third thing is, well it’s tough. It’s also making me question myself. So much of my job is about encouraging teenagers to discover themselves and be ok with who they are. I feel like a big ‘ole hypocrite right now.
However ragging on myself because of this is the opposite of what I am trying to do.
But it has given me time to think about my third thing so here goes.

I’m funny. I make people laugh. I don’t really have anything profound to say about that. Just well I am. I am an entertaining person.
And I like that about myself, knowing that when people are with me they are laughing is good.
