Get Real

Moxie  posted today about believing what and who you are.  Not letting your past define you, and not beating yourself  up over mistakes you made, workouts you skipped, fill in your own oops here.   The idea is to say who you know you are and then to live it.   Not so much change yourself now but be yourself, now.

Here’s mine:

I am a strong, loyal, trusting woman.  When I make a promise I keep it.  I may be my Mothers Daughter but that does not make me at all like my Mother.  I work hard to be true to myself and to my family.   I am capable of anything I put my mind to.  I am the perfect parent for my child

Now you.



coming up:  I choose a word for 2009.  Read where I got the idea here.

  1. I am just me… More complicated then I would like. More confident then I should to be. I am content with my daily reality. Also, so grateful for my past. I am not too intimadated by lifes obsticles. It’s amazing to climb through them, because I know the perspective from the challenge is greater then the discomfort. I know I am called to a purpose I don’t yet understand… I look forward to figuring it out in time. Right now my titles are: Wife, Mother, Sister, and Friend. To the people that I am blessed to have call me these things, I am great, honest and loyal. I have come to realize that I do not always have to be strong to love with all of my heart.

  2. Thank you for giving us something to ponder… I’m gonna copy your post ideas soon.
    I also love your answer, and for the same reasons as She Likes Purple. That’s a realization that many of us take far too long to make.

  3. My word for 2009 is Peace. I am a smart, determined woman who is on a new path for life. I am looking forward to taking that journey. I too, am my mother’s daughter – but more like my father in so many ways.

    I’m looking forward to 2009 – I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!
