2018 calendar3 Personality Traits I’m Proud Of

I love new years, turning the calendar page, starting anew … and yes, I’m one of “those” people who jots down a few new year’s resolutions, or commitments, or goals. Call it whatever you want, I like to improve myself, or at least attempt to!

But sometimes we need to appreciate the good things about ourselves. I know it feels wrong to brag on yourself. Am I right? Feels…well, the opposite of humble. But I liked this blog topic, because I want to know 3 personality traits that YOU are proud of. I’ll go first, so you won’t feel too shy.

  1. I’m energetic. This isn’t always seen as a positive by other people. Some people say I “wear them out.” Hahaha. But I like being energetic. I like feeling full of life and energy and optimism. I like bringing energy into a room. My dad was like this–a little loud sometimes, a little boisterous, but always full of energy.
  2. I’m faithful. I stick by my friends. It doesn’t matter what they’ve done or if they’re in a whining mood. In my opinion, when you enter into a friendship it’s for life. When you say “I’m your friend” you’re really saying that you love someone, that you will pray for them, that you will be there for them. I think I’ve learned how to be a faithful friend from people who have been a good friend to me.
  3. I’m a listener. I’ve learned that it’s more important to listen to people than to talk to them. I want to hear what people have to say. People are interesting. God made people, and most people have something important to share. I like listening because I learn a lot, and it makes me feel closer to others.

Now how about you? What are 3 personality traits that you’re proud of?

I draw one winner from each post’s comment section. If your name is drawn, I’ll send you a paperback book of my choice from my supply closet. If it’s one you already have, you can donate the unsigned copy to your local library or a friend. Our last winner was Netta D.

    I’m giving. I love to buy gifts and surprises for other people as well as crochet gifts.
    Encouraging. I try to boost others up when things aren’t going great.
    Reliable. When I tell someone I’ll do something it may take me a while but I always follow through.

    I’m dependable, faithful to family & friends, a good listener, sometimes I feel like Dear Abby, but energetic I am not.
    Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.

    I have to smile with the word energetic…most days that I am not!
    I am persistent (hopefully not to the point of nag!) but I like to check things off my list and finish up my projects.
    I have a helpful spirit and am empathetic…I like to help people out w/ things that need done or just be there for them.
    Young-at-heart altho the old body sometimes doesn’t want to cooperate!

    I think I am a compassionate person who really loves to help others I am a preschool teacher and hope I make a difference in my children’s lives. My passion is literacy and love reading and love reading to my little ones

  5. Fiona Hill

    I have a very open and enquiring mind – I am always discovering new things I enjoy.

    I am extremely intelligent.

    I make time for people – even if I am extremely busy I stop what I am doing and make time for them

  6. Royce E Hostetler

    I am detail oriented–which means when I do a job, I make sure that the ‘I’s are dotted and the ‘T’s are crossed–I mean if you have invited the public to a building to a venue, would you not make sure that door was unlocked so they can get in? NOT TODAY–had to prop the door open to the cafeteria with a big ORANGE pylon, letting in all the cold air.

    I am grateful and try to make sure that convey my thankfulness to others for the thing they do and how they contribute to my life.

    I am a cheerful giver, making sure that my tithes and offerings are paid with thanksgiving to GOD that HE provides abundantly in my life, that I might show grace to others.

  7. Linda McFarland

    You listed three good character traits. I think my three strongest traits are loyalty, honesty, and compassionate. Energetic I am not! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    What a wonderful celebration of who God created us to be. Thanks everyone for commenting! I really enjoyed your responses.

    Always looking for a good Amish fiction book. I like the Amish series because I always want to know the end. There isn’t enough time in the day to read books. A great book is hard to put down. Now you know my weakness.

  10. Sharlene Williams

    Patient – (married 51 years to the same man!)
    Compassionate – to a fault when it comes to four legged fuzzy critters.
    Love the Simplicity of Life itself! – a flamboyant sunset, a wild cottontail rabbit in my back yard, a lizard doing push-ups to show off his colors, crickets chirping and me counting them to try to know the night temperature, a gnawed through young tree that fell on land instead of the creek (Polish beaver?) I see humor in much of nature.
