Wednesday Wisdom: I AM
Recently, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and came across this image that a friend had posted. It was posted with challenge to write statements about oneself. The post reminded me of an “I AM” statement that I wrote back in 2006, during a time when I was really struggling. A time before I was diagnosed with Diabetes and Congestive Heart Failure.
So, I went searching through the archives to find the words to share again. Some 12 years later, they are still quite relevant and applicable. They are a much needed reminder to myself now, as I find myself struggling once again.
So, who am I?
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 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.
It’s a reminder that A Little Heart Can Do Big Things.
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.
A tough guy who loves to laugh, loves his family, and loves life. I am also tough, and soft, happy and angry, unhappy and joyous.
I am tough.
I am resilient.
I am determined.
I am hopeful.
Yes, you are. I am thankful for your friendship and support. <3
