Recently, I was going through the archives of a blog that I used to write, and came across this little gem, circa 2006. I had just quit a job because the owner was a real jerk, was struggling to get on my feet, and was dealing with a real lack of self respect and confidence. After a long conversation with April one night, I sat down and wrote this.
I am a strong, confident, caring, loving, and passionate man. I have a sound mind, and a strong spirit. I am well educated; possessing the knowledge and abilities needed to make it in this world. I am strong willed; filled with a sense of determination and endurance that will carry me through all situations. I am filled with respect, not only for others, but more importantly, for myself.
When I look back on those times and think about what I’ve been through and how far I’ve come, I realize just how true those words really are. And sometimes, it’s good to be reminded of it.
If you were to write something similar about yourself, what would you say? I challenge you to write a comment here, and tell me and, more importantly, yourself, Who You Are.
