Things I'm Great At

February is the season of romance! And who better to fall in love with this Valentine's Day than yourself? Everyone needs to indulge in a bit of self-love. It's not selfish or narcissistic, it's the foundation of a happy life, and the foundation of happy relationships with others. So, in the name of self love and self appreciation, I was inspired by my friend Beth's wonderful post to write about things that I am great at. This is also a collab with Abbie from abbiechic.com, as part of our long-running Ab Fab Collab series! Definitely go check out her self-love post once you've read mine!

Now, I'm ready to blow my own trumpet - are you?


I'm great at ... Blogging.
Sure, there are people out there with swisher blogs than mine, with better photography, and with zillions more followers. I'm not Zoella. BUT I am proud of my blog. I consistently produce content which I enjoy creating and which I receive lots of positive feedback on. I'm always striving to improve in order to make my next post better than my last. Overall, I hope that I'm a good blogger and I really take pride in what I do.

I'm great at ... Being Kind.
I'd like to think that I'm a pretty kind person. I genuinely try to make my friends feel loved and appreciated, whether it's just through listening, or through extra special gifts or surprises at Christmas or on their birthday. I try to be attentive, supportive, and not to ask for anything in return. I think that one of the best and easiest ways to be kind is just to be generous with your time, and I try to let my friends know that I'm there for them when they need me.

I'm great at ... Organisation.
I am really good at getting shit done. My blog posts are usually planned at least a fortnight in advance, and every single uni essay that I wrote throughout my undergraduate degree was handed in early (no joke, I'm crazy). Being organised and knowing that everything is taken care of makes me feel really productive and eases any anxieties, so I'm really glad that I'm good at this.

I'm great at ... Being Smart.
Intelligence is something you often feel like you have to hide while you're at school/sixth form because *it's not cool to be clever*, but I am now really proud to have my smarts. Being able to figure something out and write essays that you're proud of is such a rewarding feeling! And also, being able to win at Cleudo pretty much every time is a nice perk too, hehe ;-)

What are you great at? Spread some self-love in the comments and tell me about your best qualities!
Make sure you head to Abbie's blog to read her post as well!

Until next time,
