    1. I like my facial structure--specifically my the way my teeth resemble a predatory grin, a wide drunken salute, and an old, white-washed house that's tumbling against itself, all at the same time.

    2. I'm proud that I have a high emotional and empathetic capacity that I keep open.

    3. I'm glad that I'm willing to explore my feelings and I always try to articulate them for other people.

    4. I like that I've always been interested in other people and I feel great whenever I have a good conversation with someone.

    5. I absolutely fell in love with the early twentieth century feminist, journalist, expatriate writer, Louise Bryant, and I feel great whenever I tell people about her.

    6. I love my sense of adventure and exploration, both internally and externally.

    7. I like my character flaws--they remind me of the people I'd like to be.

    8. I'm glad I was open enough to explore suicide, devoted my time to let my depression and grief express itself, and I'm glad I didn't kill myself.

    9. I like singing. I'm glad I'm not afraid of embarrassing myself.

    10. I'm artistic in both written works as well as composing policy suggestions and little inventions. I like that about myself. It's neat.

    What are yours?
