Top strengths@Authentic Happiness

Good afternoon!

What a way to kick off Bloomin’ Elle but with the results of my VIA Survey of Character Strengths (Try it yourself:

Your Top Strength

Appreciation of beauty and excellence


You notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.

Your Second Strength

Curiosity and interest in the world


You are curious about everything. You are always asking questions, and you find all subjects and topics fascinating. You like exploration and discovery.

Your Third Strength

Humour and playfulness


You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.

Your Fourth Strength

Love of learning


You love learning new things, whether in a class or on your own. You have always loved school, reading, and museums-anywhere and everywhere there is an opportunity to learn.

Your Fifth Strength

Gratitude


You are aware of the good things that happen to you, and you never take them for granted. Your friends and family members know that you are a grateful person because you always take the time to express your thanks

 

I think this nicely sums up what my WordPress is going to be all about; nurturing strengths, and perhaps exploring the not so strong bits too. So here’s to appreciating and documenting all manner of beauty, being curious and silly, having fun, learning lots and feeling wonderfully grateful throughout. Yeehah!
