I Am…

Not so long ago…a friend posed a question on Facebook…can yJane Carrollou describe your life in six words…I contemplated it a bit…and posted…

I was…I changed…I am

Bertha…said this is the best bio I’ve ever written…because it truly gets to the heart of the matter…she says the titles that I generally list…are what I do… not who I am

So…I was a lot of things in the past…I’ve made a lot of changes…some for the better…and some…not so much…and…all of that together…equals who I am today…

It also explains why…when I try to do things the way it used to do them… they don’t seem to…fit…anymore…

I sometimes struggle with that…if it worked then…shouldn’t it work now… but…Bertha…reminds me…to get over who I was…and be who I am…

Hmmm…

Jane

What are your six words? I’d love to hear them in the comments. 😉

I Am…All That…

I’m tired…I probably say that phrase…at least…ten times a day…maybe more…and…I usually…sigh…as I say it…I suppose…just to prove the truth of my words…

I hadn’t paid much attention to it…until a friend…remarked…you’re always tired…hmmm…busted…

Now…you know that conversation…led to a tête-à-tête with…Bertha…who pointed out…something that I have known for a while…but…tend to forget…

And…that’s the power…of the words…I Am

I Am…is creative…and…brings the words that follow…into being…so…when…I say…I’m tired…I’ve created more tired…at least ten times a day…maybe that explains the fatigue…hmmm…

So…I think about my self-talk…and…all the negative…I Am…statements that I make in a day…it ain’t a pretty list…the words…broke…fat…lazy…ugly…tired…exhausted…quickly come to mind…and…I consider myself to be a pretty positive person…

I think I’ll spend some time…in…the contemplation chair…about this…do the Forgiveness Prayer…think about how to rephrase…my self-talk…but…for now…it’s been a full day…I think I’ll rest

So…if…next time we’re chatting… those illustrious words…I am tired…or any other negative…I Am…statement…escapes my lips…feel free to slap me…to get my attention…okay…not really…get out of that line…that was a joke…geez
