A Self Assessment

This is something that I have just recently started doing. I never was very self aware. I just fumbled through life, without thinking about the consequences of my actions.

It’s only recently that I have done the kind of deep soul searching that really changes a life. Luckily, my introspective wanderings have led me to make better choices, follow my dreams, and actually like myself.

 

I like myself. It’s weird, I can’t properly describe it, other than it’s similar to how I feel about a new relationship. I’m exploring a whole new person. And what I’ve found, I like.

 

I also just made a linkedin profile ( No, I will not link to it. ) and it asked me to list my skills. That’s what got me thinking about this topic. I didn’t just list the marketable skills like HTML and CSS but the more intangible ones too, like empathy and patience.

I made a massive list, probably twenty or thirty great traits about myself. It really felt great to remind myself what I am worth and who I genuinely am.

Honest, Inventive, Compassionate, Adaptable, Empathetic, Resourceful, Hard working, blah, blah, blah.

I always felt that when I said those to an interviewer, I was bullshitting. The’re the right things to say for sure, but I never believed it. ( I almost always get the jobs I try for. )

For some magical reason, I believe it now.

 

Hows that for a nice little self assessment on a rainy Sunday afternoon?
