Hi guys! This is a positive post for ya, I hope you get something out of it.

An amazing blogger, Luna, created the Proud to be Proud Tag.

What you have to do is use the #ProudToBeProud hashtag, and write 5 to 15 things you’re proud of about yourself, and do it proudly. For both me and Luna, this was difficult, and I know for some of you guys it will be difficult as well. But being proud is MORE than okay – shout to the world that you’re proud to be you.

I’m proud that:

I can sing
I come up with ideas for stories and I’ve got a good imagination
I support my friends whenever they need me
I have kept up this blog for more than a year, and got so many amazing friends out of it
I try to help people I don’t know very well
I’ve much more confident over the last year and I’m able to talk to people and not get nervous
My exams are going really well and there haven’t been any AWFUL ones yet
I’m being productive over this half term and getting revision done
I’m friendly towards new bloggers
I went to a friend’s birthday party on Saturday and had a really good time, without being sad

It’s NOT selfish. You CAN say that you’re proud of things, because you should embrace it.

It’s not arrogant, because you’re saying what you LIKE about yourself. You should take pride in what you do.

I’m not going to nominate anyone, but I’d encourage you guys to do this. Luna showed me that being proud is GOOD, and that there are actually so many things about myself that make me feel happy. That’s something, and this whole post has made me feel unbelievably positive.
