“I am” two of the most powerful words;
for what you put after them shapes your reality.
I don’t know why… but when I first came across the quote above, I stopped in my tracks. It resonated with me so much and touched me to my core. Why? Maybe it is because I feel that when people see me now, they think of me as only a mother and they do not see the rest of me. It could be that I myself have forgotten who I am since becoming a mother and becoming wrapped up in the lives of my daughters. I know that I am not the only one that feels like this and I know that I am sooooo much more!!!
Who AM I?
I am a daughter and a sister.
I am a wife and a mother (Actually… I am a mama bear).
I am a Latina and not a stereotype.
I am an educated woman and a medical professional (a Pathologists’ Assistant to be exact).
I am a dancer (I can’t hear music and sit still… it’s not possible)
I am an entrepreneur and a role model.
I am one to step out of my comfort zone (even though there might be some hesitation).
I am funny and creative.
I am authentic and honest (my face just does not lie very well).
I am caring and kind.
I am determined and passionate.
I am strong.
I am independent.
I am a survivor because I have overcome adversity throughout my entire life.
But I am human….
I am not perfect.
I am one to make mistakes.
I am an ocean of emotion.
I am a creature of habit and change is not always easy for me.
I am a control freak because I do not like not knowing.
I am not one to trust easily.
I am one to make myself physically sick from stress (and I am working on controlling that).
I am learning to love my body.
I am an optimist, a pessimist and a realist (it just depends on the day).
I am scared of what the future holds and excited all at the same time.
I am ME…
I am confident in my abilities.
I am a resource to those around me.
I am going to continue to follow my passion of helping others.
I am going to change the world.
I am so much more!
I am all of the above and so much more. I am more than what you read on my about me page. I am so much more than what you and I see on the outside AND I am going to make sure I tell myself that EVERYDAY. So today I remind you that people are more than what you see on the outside. I also ask you to remember who you are.
Tell me… who are you?
