Self Love

26th post for #bloganuary (a WordPress event)


The Prompt: What is your favorite part about yourself?


What a strange question. Am I to dissect myself into different parts and judge them against each other? How does my left pinkie toe compare vs. the birthmark I have on my cheek? What are the criteria? I don’t think I’ve studied this subject before. I’m feeling wholly unqualified to properly execute this request.

So, I’m inclined to cheat on this one. Why not love my whole self? Why play favorites? If pressed, I guess I would have to say my brain/mind? After all, that’s what makes me me and not just a random sack of meat. But if you asked me to give up my left pinkie toe, I’d argue I’m better whole than in bits and pieces. So I’ll politely ask not to be dissected. At least not until I’m deceased, then take all my parts worth anything and give them to those in need. There most be someone needing a new left pinkie toe.

  2. Ha ha. I love it. If I had to choose, I’d say my singing voice. But wait, you’re right! If I didn’t have ears, I wouldn’t be able to hear my voice sing.

      Oh, Michelle! I’ve got to apologize for not applying to your comments. I’ve just discovered a whole set of comments (mostly yours) somehow in my spam box. I don’t know how it happened. I cherish your feedback and greatly appreciate all your reads and comments.

      1. No problem Monty. I’m not sure why comments end up in spam sometimes. It has happened to me too.

  3. Right? Definitely weird to pick just one favorite. I don’t want to discriminate against my other body parts. Then I would have to live with those parts being upset with me and God knows where that would lead.

      Exactly. All we need is a vindictive little toe in our life constantly tripping us up.
