The 2020 Writers Happiness Challenge Day 5: Amplify Your Strengths

As a Highlander I am often inclined less to talk about or even admit to having any strengths. This makes today's happiness exercise a bit of a challenge.

As a follower of Jesus I am also, like St Paul, not interested in boasting in anything, but the love Christ has for us. However, on balance I reflect on Jesus' own golden rule, "Love thy neighbour as thy self." The implication is not only that we love neighbours, but love ourselves. If we love ourselves we will acknowledge His blessings on our lives. After all are we not created in His image?

So I'm approaching this not to boast in anything, but the blessing God has given. His love, his divine spark, that of Him. I am acknowledging the gifts he has given. These strengths for me include:

  1. Smiling (a person who works for the same company as me always comments on this). 
  2. Laughter
  3. Compassion 
  4. Empathy
  5. Being an introvert (yes it is also a strength).
  6. Singing 
  7. Pursuit of peace 
  8. An unusual sense of humour 
  9. Love for nature 
  10. Family oriented
