Five Things {I am} Friday

Last Friday I read this post from Katie at Peace Love and Oats about what she is. She is great by the way, I read her blog everyday! Her post was all about her feeling like she's in a funk, her clothes are a little snug, and she was feeling out of sorts. The crazy part? She just ran a marathon. Seriously, a full marathon. She's awesome. She realized that she was so much more than she was giving herself credit for and I think that we all are so much more than we give ourselves credit for most of the time.

So she made a list of things that she is. It was a great idea, and helped me to focus on the things that I am. There may be a lot of things that I am not, but there are plenty that I of things I am (big and small) that I love.

1. I am a wife to a fantastic husband.

2. I am a pet owner to my dog and 2 cats.

3. I am a pianist.

4. I am cake and cookie decorator.

5. I am runner.

Does it mean that I am perfect at these things? Heck no! As I was typing up my list I found myself qualifying each thing. "I am a pianist, no matter how out of practice".  I don't have to be perfect to be these things. I just have to do them, and love them! So take some time today and focus on what you ARE. What you LOVE about yourself, and all the good that you have in you! And then share one or two things :)

Who are YOU? What things do you love about yourself?


  1. that's so awesome that you are a pianist!

    i'm an older sister to three sisters! :)
