Friend Makin’ Mondays: What Makes You Awesome?

It’s Monday, and if you read my blog, you know what that means! It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays.  And this week, I want to talk about what we love about ourselves.  We all have our own set of strengths and weaknesses that make us unique, and I think it’s time for us to celebrate those things.

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers.

Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

What makes you awesome? List at least five qualities/hobbies/habits make you cool and unique?
I struggle to come up with answers for questions like these, but I think it’s important for all of us to have answers to this question so I’m going to try.

1) I’m pretty easy going…friendly and even-keeled.  This is a pretty new quality, but I’m glad I possess it right now!

2) I have talents…I sing, play piano a little and knit cool things like yoga mat bags, scarves and snowmen. =)

Cold Cold Heart

3) I’m intelligent.

4) I have style…I dress well and have a knack for picking just the right shade of nail polish and lip color.

5) I don’t give up.

Now it’s your turn.  You can been as whimsy as you want to be, but don’t be afraid to dig deep.  I’m looking forward to seeing your answers so don’t forget to come back and share your link! Happy Monday!

    Hi there Kenz, nice to "meet" you 🙂

    You should check out Zoya nailpolish, it's my fave 😉 And I play piano too, not as much now because of my arthritis but I can still play the easy stuff.
