What I Love About Me ~ Amy of Vanagon Champion
this summer, i am hosting a new weekly series called the what i love about me series. my vision is to get a variety of women talking about their favorite part of themselves. It could be a physical quality, an awesome ability, personality trait, etc. :)
i hope to help reverse negative conditioning from society, and promote women realizing and celebrating the positive aspects of themselves.
read on about this week's amazing woman, amy of vanagon champion.
As a huge advocate for any and every self-love cause, I am so honored to be guest posting here on Chantilly's blog. I do believe completely and wholly that learning to love ourselves--every single part of us, both physical and mental--is the most important goal we can accomplish. We are too often told that it's not ok to like ourselves or be proud of ourselves, but I'm with Chantilly--we are something to be celebrated, and we should love ourselves and praise ourselves as the beautiful women we are.
That all being said, one thing I love about myself is my passion. Ever since I was little, I've given 110% to every little thing I've ever loved. I don't just love music--I live and breathe music. And when it comes to hobbies or interests, I'm not just a casual observer--I'm a full-fledged addict. I believe that my passion is what has made me who I am today. It's helped me forge lifelong friendships with people sharing similar passions, it's allowed me to excel in school, and it's ultimately landed me several jobs in different fields I'm interested in.
My passion is what gets me out of bed in the morning, and it's what makes me feel alive. And my biggest passion--my 1984 Westfalia Vanagon--is currently making me the happiest I've ever been. I give my heart fully to things, and whether or not it hurts me in the end, I at least feel and love with all my heart. And that's something I love about myself.
