Who I Am

In light of recent events I have had to do a lot of soul searching. When you are with someone for 4 years who start to lose your individual identity. Now that I'm on my own, I've had to get to know myself again. Who am I? What do I like? What do I not like? I have discovered that I am much happier now that I can be myself. Because I have found out, or been reminded, who "myself" is. I thought I'd write it down so I can look back at it in times of doubt.

Who I Am

I like chicken nuggets
I like chocolate

  1. This is beautiful. I love that you know who you are, even if you had to figure it out again. Love you!!

  2. Ever since you were 6 I thought you were incredible. Now I can add amazing, inspiring and beautiful.

  3. And an awesome "me" you are!!! You are also an inspiration to others, a joy to read, fun to be with, amazingly happy in the face of so many challenges, extremely talented, and a blessing to others. I think your discovery is only a beginning of who you are and the influence you have in the lives of others. Love, Aunt Karen

  4. Wonderful read! You have something a lot of people don't have and that is self-esteem. It is one thing to know and appreciate yourself, but it is another to act it out. The first thing I thought about when I read it is "Have you read the book 'You are Special'? It is one of my favorites, I give it at my children's baptism and at a baby blessing. I want everyone in my family to have their very own book! xoxo
