What I AM

I have often noticed myself dwelling on qualities that I don’t like about myself and/or qualities I wish I had. In order to combat those feelings I decided to write about the qualities I do have in order to celebrate the person I AM. I was reminded recently that no one should have to change who they are to be accepted. I believe everyone has good qualities and we need to be proud of who we are.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am NOT… an overly outgoing, expressive person. It takes me a while to open up to people because I am very quiet at first.

I AM… a loyal, dedicated friend. I go out of my way to take care of the people I love and show them how much I care. If I call you friend, I will do anything for you and will always be by your side.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am NOT… someone who will speak my mind. I am very hesitant to share my opinion, especially in groups of people.

I AM… a thinker. Although I don’t always share my opinions out loud, I think very deeply about everything. Some would say I’m an over-thinker. I like to be sure of everything I say and do. It’s important to me that I think things through so I know that I’m making the right decision.

I AM… a listener. If you need to vent about something…I’m your girl! My ears and heart are always open!

I AM… a writer. I’m much more open and honest when I put my thoughts in writing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am NOT… a person who will let things go easily. Forgive and forget? Eh…I will forgive but it will always be in the back of my mind.

I AM… kind and generous and easy to get along with. I like to get to know others and care about what others think of me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am NOT… easy to live with! I may have an undiagnosed form of OCD! 🙂 If you put something back in a different spot…I WILL NOTICE! You better not leave finger prints on the refrigerator! Dust bunnies don’t live in my house. At least not for very long!

I AM… a doer! I get things done! I’m on-time and don’t put things off. Procrastination drives me crazy!

I AM… organized! Organization keeps me calm and happy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I AM… a mom, wife, daughter, friend, teacher and I try damn hard to be good at all those!
