Proud to be ME!!
Sunday, February 06, 2011
I'm working on this, and some days are better than others. I'm focusing on being me and not trying to be someone else. I need to remember to be true to me. I like my personality and I'm not going to change it for anybody! Some people view me as a rock, one of the strongest people they know. I'm glad they have that perception of me, but I do have my moments, everyone does. I have a great way of staying calm during a crisis, even if I don't always know what to do. I also like to take a rational view of things. Sometimes I'm a bit too rational and I have a hard time connecting to the emotional in life. I'm a great mother, but sometimes I do snap at the kids when stress is building. Those are the moments I wish I could erase, but I know no one is perfect. I learn from my mistakes and try to not make the same bad choices twice. I like to think I'm smart, but who really decides the definition of that. No matter what I'm good at, I keep my modesty in check by remembering there is always someone better...but that doesn't mean I can't strive to be the best me possible! I know I have a lot to learn, and a lot to offer. I have a great family, great friends and a great life. I have a few obstacles, but everyone does. My character is partly defined by how gracefully I maneuver those obstacles, and I'll be the first to say I'm often clumsy, tripping over them!! Those are some of the thoughts I have on myself, but that is no where near everything about me. There are things about me that I am still discovering. Overall, I'm proud to be me, and I hope you're proud to be you!!
