Mindful Monday: I Am?

I stated last week that I had started a new Mindfulness course.  I had taken another one, but it was not quite what I was looking for.  I really like this new one.  One of the exercises I learned this week is called, I Am?

So, what am I?  I am a woman, mother, wife, sister, daughter, nurse, health coach, artist, blogger, friend, smart, persistent, obstinant, strong-willed, a leader, kind, chubby, naive, organized, crazy, loud, introverted, and probably many more.

All of those things are labels.  Some are obvious, and others whether true or not, are labels that either I or others have assigned to me.  The point of the exercise is, they are all a part of me, even the bad ones or ones that are not true.  I am, Me, and that is the only thing that matters.  People either accept me, or they don’t.  I accept me, and that is all that matters.  Now, that does not mean I don’t believe in personal growth, or one’s ability to change bad habits or traits.  That is obviously not true or I wouldn’t be a Health Coach.  My point is humans often evaluate their self worth by labels assigned to them by others.  Rather than being mindful of ourselves and appreciating both the strengths and weaknesses that we have.  Mindfulness is meant to help one love oneself, appreciating all aspects of themselves, rather than what others think, or say about oneself.
