Who I am really keeps surprising me. - Poet Nikki Giovanni
Thursday, March 24, 2011
I think the willingness to get to know myself and to become different from what I thought I was has been key in this journey. Who do I want to be and how am I going to get there. I am learning that although I know who I think I am. I am not always how I see myself. If I am willing to change my opinion I have more success.
I am a person who loves to bake. I like to eat that food. But, I can also be a person who brings salad to the monthly potluck.
I have arthritis in my ankle but, I can use a stationary bike to help me get in shape. I can walk too.
I eat poorly when I have not planned. But, I enjoy the planning. I am learning to put my love of baking into cooking and experimenting with foods.
I am learning to accept that I am a person who makes progress. Even if it feels like I am not.
