Cause we spend too much time focusing on the negative, folks. If you read this please make your own version!
  1. Ability to sleep through the night
    I appreciate my good fortune here. Thinking about this was the seed for this list.
  2. Responsive wit
    I cannot tell a joke to save my life, but I can be quite funny in response to other people.
  3. Poor long-term memory
    Means I don't remember trauma. Makes me very forgiving and optimistic.
  4. Glass half full outlook
    I've had a very fortunate life but it also helps that I am a very bright-side type person.
  5. I don't care about things being tidy or clean that much
    I said it was things *I* appreciate. Others maybe not so much!
  6. Ability to kick it into high gear when under deadline
    Helped a lot when I was a student.
  7. Proofreading/wordsmithing skills
    Has given me a career--and also helps with number and word puzzles (and feeling superior to others on occasion--mostly sign writers who can't use apostrophes--but we all have different gifts!)
  8. Lack of ambition/drive
    I'm spinning this as a positive since it means I'm happy pretty much anywhere.
  9. Brainstorming
    I am excellent at brainstorming or leading brainstorming sessions. I've been told I'm good at meetings, too, though I rarely lead them (see "ambition" above).
  10. Character actor/celebrity recognition ability
    Good party trick and helps at trivia nights. I know the difference between Peter Sarsgaard and Stellan Skarsgard, for instance.
