Thankful Tuesdays #23 – Favorite Physical Traits

Written as part of 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge which I’m attempting this year.


Favorite Physical Traits

Week 23 – Thankful Tuesdays

If it’s noticing physical traits when seeing others, I think it comes with comparison.

I’m quite pimpled, so I notice that first. I guess they could be my favorite trait. My sister also gets them, so I’ve this knack to see any new pimple that pops up on her face.

I’m a bit overweight, and have a belly, so I do notice when my friends are overweight too. I have two best friends who are, and we tease each other about it. It’s all friendly of course, and it helps to ignore it or inspire to try and get it under control.

And yeah, I’m happy with my height. When visitors come to my office from Europe or Africa, that’s the first thing I notice. They’re way taller than me. Some of them are nearly seven feet. At times, it makes me wish I were a little taller.

I don’t suppose there is anyone who looks at the mirror and doesn’t wish to change some aspect of what they see. (There might be of course.) I do too. But honestly, I’m thankful for whoever I am at this moment, whatever the traits I have.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
