Inspiration for the day: " I AM ME"


This is one of my favorite Quotes. So often I have to remind myself, that “I AM ME.”  I cannot change who I am deep down inside for anyone. It doesn’t matter if it is my family or friends.

From time to time, I know that we all try to be someone that they are not. It could be for a relationship, for work, friends, or family and we even do it for our children.  We stress ourselves trying to be so many things for so many people at different times in our lives and even day to day. 

Sometimes we need to stop and breath and tell ourselves that we are who we are and no one should be able to change that.  We should all learn to live with who we are and be who we want to be…even it goes against what others want, think or feel we should be.

I am Me.

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

Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- 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 fantasies, 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 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 see, hear, feel, think, say, 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 I am Okay.”


~Virginia Satir

I asked for strength....


I asked for strength and
God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for wisdom and
God gave me problems to solve.

I asked for prosperity and
God gave me brawn and brains to work.

I asked for courage and
God gave me dangers to overcome.

I asked for patience and
God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.

I asked for love and
God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for favors and
God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted
I received everything I needed.
My prayers have all been answered.

Before I was a Mom


Before I was a Mom -
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was a Mom -
I cleaned my house each day.
 I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby
 I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
 I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never been puked on - Pooped on - Spit on - Chewed on, or Peed on.
 I had complete control of my mind and My thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held down a screaming child so that doctors could do tests...or give shots.
 I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
 I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down.
 I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
 I never knew that something so small could affect my life
so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
 I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
 I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
 I had never known The warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
 I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.
