14 OF 30

describe 5 strengths you have.

i always find it a bit awkward to talk about your strengths.  check me out. i think i'm reeeally good at ___.  so, with that said, i don't mean to brag on myself at all.  AT ALL. 

1.  piano.  i love love LOVE the piano.  and i feel like i'm pretty good at it.  i know i'm not pro.  there are sooo many people better than i am.  i'll never be a concert pianist.  i'll never be able to play something the first time perfectly. but  i love to sit down and just sight read something and have it sound beautiful.  it took me a while to get to the point where i actually loved it, but i do and it is something that i will use my entire life.

2.  i feel like i have a pretty good grasp on who i am.  i'm not going to change who i am according to circumstance.  sure, i've changed the past year.  but it's been a growing change.  i'm becoming who i am supposed to become.  i make mistakes like everyone, but i know who i am and where i'm headed. 

3.  confidence.  and this is different than being cocky or stuck up.  this is simply that i am not afraid to show who i am.  i have confidence in myself and my abilities.  i am confident in my testimony of Jesus Christ and this one true Church.  i am confident in my relationships with my family and friends.  i am confident of where i am going in life. 

4.  compassion.  i don't want to say i'm always perfectly compassionate, but compassion is something that has always come relatively easily for me.  i always feel so badly for others when they go through something hard.  i shed tears often for the pain of those i love. 

5.  grammar.  it has always come sooooooo easily for me!  i know the difference between "you're" and "your" and "there, their, and they're."  i know when to use "its" and when to use "it's."  it's just something that i've always enjoyed and i think i'm good at it :)

that was as awkward as i thought it would be.  ah well, whatever.  please know that i only did this post because it was part of that 30 thing.
