Noticing the Good
Being able to appreciate what’s good in your life
does not really come naturally to most people.
We are actually wired to notice when things
go wrong, instead of when things go right.
But paying attention to the good stuff pays off,
in decreased anxiety and depression, and
improved self-esteem and relationships.
100 Things Lists
Something that you can easily do to improve
your self-esteem is to take a piece of paper
and start listing all of the things about yourself
that you like, appreciate, and value.
From 1 to 100…100 things that are just really
cool, wonderful, and awesome about yourself.
If you want to dramatically improve the positive
feeling in an intimate partnership with someone,
then each of you completes the list of 100 Things
I Love About You, listing all the things you love,
appreciate, and respect about your partner.
If you have a child or a good friend, you can do
the same list : 100 Things I Love About You.
The Writing Is On the Wall…
Take this list and don’t just throw it away:
frame it and put it where you will see it everyday.
Put the list you made about your partner or your
child, your friend, your sibling, or parent and
make it sure it is displayed where they will see it.
It helps to be reminded on a daily basis of what
is really good about you…whether it’s generated by
you or someone who really loves you.
