...for being successful. Only haters want to keep you at their level.

...for using proper English. Keeping it real doesn't mean you have to speak Ebonics.

...for crying. Just wear waterproof mascara...

...for being frugal. Just because you save your money instead of blowing it on the latest fashion "emergency", doesn't mean you're cheap!

...(on the flip side) for treating yourself to something special. Sometimes you have to show yourself some appreciation.

...for having the biggest, craziest, most ridiculous dream.

...for having a good-sized forehead, a gap-toothed smile, and large, expressive eyes. There are people out there who like that...even in combination;-)

...for saying NO! (I'm still working on this one.)

...for pursuing what makes you happy. Even if you need to quit your job, transfer schools, or move across country, always do what you really want.

...for being clumsy.

...for having an appreciation for all different kinds of food, music and men but having a favourite one of each.

...for not wanting to have conversation during the movie.

...for being low-maintenance and proud of it!

...for being a girl and loving a good game, a fight, or Sports Center...

...for being modest.

...for not understanding something. It's the fool who doesn't ask questions!

...for having biceps, small feet or junk in your trunk, lol.

...for being emotional or sad when it's time to say goodbye.

...for laughing SO hard, your head literally hurts and you actually can't breathe.

...for being spontaneous!

...for just being who you are!

One of your most revealing posts yet, sis. And speaking of frugality, how'd that giving-up-shoes-for-lent thing work out?

I find it interesting that you (probably) never had braces on your teeth, and therefore still (fortunately for your loyal 13 readers/viewers) retain your very comely gap.

Awesome list. I can relate to many.

Nupe: I've done a great job giving up the shoes for Lent, if I do say so myself. Luckily, I'm out of town, so that helps:)

Yeah, I'm not sure why I didn't have braces considering my brother had them. My father has a gap so maybe my parents wanted me to still REALLY look like him, who knows?
