Introducing Me

Tags

I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it — I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know — but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things around me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.” – Virginia Satir

This is the Day

This is the day that the Lord has made…

We used to sing that in assembly back when I was in primary school and in high school. Gone are those days, yet, here I am, still remembering those tunes. This song has been ringing in my head most of today. It must have something to do with the fact that it’s my birthday today.

This has been a truly amazing day, filled with so much joy and smiling, and it’s all thanks to the Almighty who always has my back, through the good times and the bad. 27 years on this Earth. It’s been quite a journey, and I owe it all to Him.

I’ve discovered Him, I’m still discovering myself, and I’ve discovered my family (blood family and friends) as well as love. I look forward to many more happy years in the future.

Thank you to everyone for the beautiful messages, the love and the gifts, especially the biggest and most wonderful gift – will be revealed later. And a beeeg beeeeg thank you to my Sunshine and my brother, for all that you have done, and for all that you are still yet to reveal over the weekend.

 

I love you guys ❤
