What Makes You Great?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Post Great Grains Cereal for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s a sinple question, but so hard to answer. Recenetly,  Post Great Grains Cereal asked me to share with you what makes me great. In reality, I’m such a self-depreicating type personality, the thought of telling people in a public place what makes me great seems a bit weird, but here goes.

This is what makes me great. These are the things that the the two people I love most have most recently complimented me on:

  • I’m a good listener
  • I’m very playful
  • I don’t spend money I don’t have, in fact I’m pretty cheap
  • I’ve recently dropped down to a weight I haven’t seen since I was 20.
  • I decided to treat alcohol and caffiene more like sweets (once in a while treats) than like their own food group

Even though it feels weird, I do try now not to be so self-depricating, and try to have a more positive view on myself. I’ve found this is easier by surrounding myself with positive people who care and repect for their well-being.

Post Great Grains Cereal also asked lots of different women what makes them great. On the topic of getting older, the survey revealed that  80 percent of women love themselves more now than they did 10 years ago. Isn’t that amazing? I can relate too. There’s so many little things I use to hate about myself that I have now come to appreciate like my not-so-thin lips, five-head and thick hair.

On the topic of self-empowerment, 93 percent of women feel they’ve improved some aspects of themselves in the past 10 years. Which I think is so true, we all get better and smarter as we age, don’t we?

And the advice we would give our youngerselves is common too: Ten years ago, ladies wish they’d known that saying “no” takes courage (40 percent) and people treat you the way you allow them to (40 percent).
