Blogger challenge question #6, 7.8.14

Three personality traits that I am most proud of. Hmmm...this is hard. Now, if it was three personality traits I'm least proud of- that would be easy. I'm usually pretty critical of myself, so I really had to dig down to decide on the answer here. But, here goes:

1. I'm honest. Read more about that in my blog post from 2013, which can be found here.

2. I'm a devoted mom.  My kids are the reason I was put on this earth. I would do anything, be anything, go anywhere, etc. for them. They are the light of my life.
One of my all-time favorite quotes:
"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."
-- Agatha Christie

3. I'm easy. (No! Not in that way!) In the way that it doesn't take much to make me happy. I've never wanted a big house, fancy furniture or expensive clothes. Maybe it's because I've never had these things. But I like to think it's because my parents taught us, by example, how easy it was to be happy without "excess". 
I love this video. I know I've shared it here before (probably more than once), but it inspired me so much that I think about it almost every day. Maia's recipe for a long life- simplicity, work and enjoyment.  If the end of my life could be this simple and serene- I would consider myself a very rich person.  

So, there ya go! Have a great evening- Juli
