So this time, for me, I am celebrating me. It is something most people wouldn't think of doing, because they have misgivings about how they would be perceived by talking about themselves and praising their accomplishments. It is a true way for anyone to 'take stock' of everything that they have done but fail to realize how important it is, or how significant it was in determining who they are today. So really, who am I?
For me, this is an easy question. I am a person who has integrity. I am a person who loves her family and is always willing to fight for them regardless of what happened. I am a strong woman, who has been through difficult situations but never failed to persevere through each challenge. I am an extremely sensitive woman who hurts easily. I am a passionate woman. I love laughing. My favourite colour is orange, which apparently is a good colour to like.
I am a person who loves learning new things. The unfortunate part of this is that when I learn something, perfecting it, I will become bored and I will stop doing whatever it is. I am forever a girl scout, earning my badges and then walking away. It is strange, but I don't feel bad about this impossible trait to have, but I actually relish in the quirkiness of it. It is good that I am not afraid to learn new things, and because of this, I never feel inhibited.
I love to dance. I am not a great dancer; actually I probably look ridiculous, but I love it anyway. I will put on any music and just dance on the spot. I believe that it is the physicality of dancing that is so appealing to me. The feeling of the beat and the movement of my body just brings out those great chemicals in my body.
I love singing. I know that I have said this one before, but it is true. Singing is part of who I am. Some people cry when that have been hurt; I will sing. When I am happy, I sing. When I am bored, I will sing. Now, don't listen too closely, because, although I have a beautiful voice, I am not the best at remembering lyrics. George always tells me that I am a true singer and the words that I sing are those that are in my heart. He and Ashleen both have told me that the way that I sing certain songs are better than the originals. So I guess it can not be that bad.
I am a person who, unlike most, is pretty much an open book. Although I have had a lot of personal failures and triumphs, I am one who believes that by speaking from experience and telling my story, it may help others when they face similar problems in similar situations. It is always good to know that you are not alone. Also, it kind of helps to know that your problems happen to everyone, we are all the same, just leading different lives.
I am an active participant in life and I am an avid observer of life. I notice everything. When you come around me and you are in a different mood, I can feel and see this. That is why I will always ask you if you are okay. I truly want to know. I care about a lot of people and I am a good judge of character. I see things others do not take the time to notice.
I am not a gossip. Being a person who was the victim of gossip, I vehemently despise gossip. Like I have said before, if I have a problem with you, ask me, or I will tell you. Keeping things bottled up is not a way that I ever want to live my life. I used to be a gossip; it hurts people, and I will never be that person again.
So for now, for me, I am going to be happy to be me. I am proud of all of the accomplishments that I have achieved so far. I have this site for a reason, and it is to know that being happy is a state of mind and taking stock is always a good thing for anyone. If you are ever feeling a little low, think about all the wonderful things that you have done, and reinforce within yourself how wonderful you are. It is not an ego thing; it is giving yourself the confidence to be you.
Happy Does It! :o)
