I am Me

I am Me.
In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me.

I own everything about me:
my body,
my feelings,
my mouth,
my voice,
all my actions, whether they be to others or myself.

I own
my fantansies,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my fears.

I own
my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me.

By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts.

I know tha there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know, but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded.

I can
and do.

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and

    That is great! Thanks for sharing it.

    I just stumbled upon your blog so I don't know if you're like me, but for year (and years and years) I have been slave to my job, my family, etc. etc. etc., you get the picture. As a result, I became something that I was not. Stress from my job and family pushed me into a place that I did not like to be . . . and I did not like myself. And my body reflected it. Finally, after my job and family was gone, I was left with myself. I didn't like what I saw reflecting back in the mirror. Quit or start over? Then I stumbled upon SparkPeople. emoticon

    Now I embrace who and what I am becoming. Yes, I like myself again. And encouraging words, like those you posted above, serve as a reminder that I am a 'one of a kind' miracle!

    Not only do I have the tools to survive . . . . but I will THRIVE!
