LushLunes: Patting Yourself On The Back

Last week, I asked you to tell me how Incredible you are. The comments for the LushLunes  giveaway moved me to tears.

Reading how you persevered and how you give yourself the Me time you deserve was so refreshing, that I had to share a few of those comments in a post.

On Health:
"I am incredible because I beat cancer and can say it has changed my cancer was at stage four. I was walking around not even knowing I was infected. I am incredible because it has given me an awesome relationship with my mom and it has brought friends closer in my life that I now know who are my TRUE friends.... This time has allowed me to appreciate life. I am incredible because I finally love and appreciate ME! -Sunshine from CancerInTheCity
 On Love: 
"Incredible and incredibly lucky I am! A few years ago, I saw a vision of a girl while at my school. It was tough to work up the courage to talk to her but I overcame my fear of rejection and asked her out. Nearly 7 years later, I'm incredibly happy to say this vision became my friend, my partner and my soul mate." -Don Aficionado from Mets!Mets!Mets!

On Education:
"In high school I was told, by the school counselor, that the chances of me getting into a good college were slim. Colleges I later attended: School of Visual Arts [and] Columbia university." -from TheArtMuse

On Positive Thinking

"Everyday I wake up is a blessing. Just being able to breathe the fresh air is an incredible feeling on its own. Without enjoying that small aspect in life, you can't really consider yourself to be incredile. I could go on and on about how I was made for greatness, but it all starts with opening your eyes in the morning." - Alex from MyHazeyBlur

On The Changing Your Path:

The time I felt most amazing was when I left my job as an attorney to go back to grad school...not only was I able to get the school to fully fund me, but I graduated with a perfect 4.0! As for how I celebrate myself, I make sure to make time to recharge my batteries. Despite how busy I am, I take time to work out, get massages, spend time with friends and family, read for pleasure. -Chelita from Coconut Chica

My Deep Thinkers are AWESOME!! And those are just some of the wonderful comments.  I think we can identify with a lot of what has been mentioned here. Which brings me to your LUSH LUNES ASSIGNMENT: 

Today's  LushLunes  will continue last weeks mission on the Incredible YOU... take some time and do an "I Am Incredible" inventory. That's it. A few minutes to assess and pat yourself on the back. After all, asking you to congratulate yourself once in a while it isn't too much to ask. ;-) 

By the way...thanks again to all of you who really engage in the LushLunes mission. It makes me feel Incredible to think that I can help at least one of you incorporate some ME time in your lives.
