I Am Me

This is my favorite Poem.

I Am Me

-Virginia Satir

In all of the world there is no one else exactly like me.

Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine Because I alone choose it.

I own everything about me, My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all of my actions, Whether they be to others or to myself.

I own my fantasies, my dreams, My hopes, my fears.  I own all my triumphs and successes, all my Failures and mistakes, because I own all of me.

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 for ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do and what ever I think and feel at any given moment in time is authentically ME.

If later some parts of how I looked sounded, thought, or felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which was 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, to make since and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, therefore I can engineer me.  I am me and I am ok

Peace and Love,

P
