Journaling From The Heart - Workbook 1 - Assignment 4 - Who am I?

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

My mood before going into this exercise is neutral yet content.

We tend to think of ourselves as someone's else partner, sister , daughter or whatever, but do we really think of who we are? I know i need to start believing more in myself and stop thinking of reasons for others but only for myself, I am doing this for myself no one else so here is my list to who i am.....

I am Aithley
I am 25 years old
I am a Libra
I am a September child
I am a granddaughter
I am a daughter
I am a sister
I am a niece
I am a cousin
I am a nurse
I am a traveler
I am a writer
I am a free thinker
I am an extrovert
I am a people's person
I am kind
I am loving
I am sweet
I am generous
I am courageous
I am willing
I am me!!!!


1. How did this go for me?

This was a bit difficult to write for so long i have been thinking i am someone's this and that but never really thought about who i am actually, i did come out with a good number of things though.

2. What did I learn?

I learnt i need to believe more in myself than i do.

3. This brought up something new, what?

Putting myself first, i have not done that in a very long time, others always comes first with me.

4. Mood after completing the exercise?

My mood has slightly shifted and I seem more happier than what i was to begin this exercise.

    emoticon What a wonderful list you made. I wish that I had done this exercise when I was your age. It took me much longer to appreciate who I am. Keep that list where you can read it often and not forget what an outstanding woman you are.

    I'm glad you are figuring out who you are at your young age! I still am trying to find me. I have truly lost myself and am trying again to find her! No more just a mom or a wife! Great job!

    emoticon i love this, and I would add, you are as worthwhile and important as anyone else, as precious as a baby, and wonderful just as you are... lovable just as you love all those other people in your life just as they are... and, don't you think as women we are culturally taught to nurture & take care of others, that we tend to put the needs of all others before ourselves from family to employers to volunteers to friends even... which is all good... but, taking care of our essential real needs is not selfish, it's essential ~ things like managing our weight, making the time to find, make & eat real food, taking care of our body, exercising to take care of our cardiovascular heart health and muscles... our emotional health, all important, as important as our obligations to go to work or to a doctors... well, i'll stop, i loved reading your list... you rock!

    emoticon We are sometimes taught that to be proud of oneself is conceited or self-centered. Wrong! I am glad that you are celebrating the many things that are good about you!
