I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

30 days of truth day 11: something people seem to compliment you the most on

There are, fortunately, several things I can list here.

On the physical, shallow end, I can say that I receive a lot of compliments on my eyes and my hair. They’re both intriguing shades, I will admit.

I receive compliments on my son, that he’s cute or sweet or funny or smart.

I receive compliments on my writing, which means so much to me since I’m forever convinced that I’m barely succeeding at stringing sentences together.

I receive compliments on my full-time work, which also means so much to me. It can be a thankless job sometimes, but I help people, day in and day out, and when someone thanks me for that, it’s very humbling.

I receive compliments on my cooking and baking. There’s a commercial for the Travel Channel in which the guy from Man v. Food says that he hasn’t met a mother in any culture who doesn’t love feeding people. It’s an oversimplified stereotype of mothers, sure, but not a totally untrue one. Being a parent switches on, in many people, an undeniable urge to feed a) your child(ren) and b) anyone in your house. It can be annoying to the recipients, but if I’m remembered as a distributor of tasty foods, I’ll have lived a full life.
