It's LIST TIME!!!
And on today's agenda - in the spirit of connecting to forgotten parts of myself, here are a few Things I Like About Myself That I used To Hate:

I use to get offended for being considered 'intense.' Now, it is a mark of honor. If intensity means I am a nerd who deeply cares about something, then so be it. Give me the Intense hat and I'll wear it with pride.
I used to have a high pitch annoying-to-all kind of voice. Also, speaking with an accent was a huge crutch. But as the old saying goes 'from lemons make lemonade' I went into work and what was once a crutch is now a badge of honor.
