A is for Admire

Well, today is my first day of the challenge, and I wanted to kick off my celebration of life by thinking about the qualities that I admire within myself.  We can usually find it easy to think about things we admire about others, we can also think about the strengths that others have that we wished we possessed.  I am not used to blowing my own trumpet, but think at some point or another we have to appreciate and applaud how far we have come.  When I look back on some of the things I found hard throughout my life I know that each experience impacted on me and deposited a quality that I would be able to be used at another stage.  That being said, I admire my strength and not giving up.  I am glad that I can find something to be grateful for in my life, especially when we can go through some of the most stressful times.  I admire my organisational abilities, I use to feel that there was too much conflict with being an artist and being organised.  But I can deal with that and see the benefits.  I admire being able to see some of the gems and the gifts, I don't catch all of them.  In my mothers journey with dementia, I have seen new strengths within me, seen myself grow in my art and in my writing. What qualities about yourself do you admire?
