I am strong. I am worthy. I am respected. I am loved. I am capable. I am.
Do you ever wake up in the morning and wonder how your day will go? Will something good happen? Something bad? Will you help someone on the street or be hurt by a friend?
It is only early afternoon and my morning has consisted of me sitting in the car for almost 4 hours. I’m waiting on my mom in the doctor’s office. A few weeks ago, she had her annual mammogram and was called back to the office for more tests. More tests. Those words scare the living daylights out of me. Knowing my family’s history with cancer, the phrase “more tests” often means there is something we need to worry about and that there will more waiting for test results.
As I sit here, typing this post and reflecting on the morning, I an constantly drawn back to my “I Am” motto above and how those words keep me going. Yes, the phrase “I Am” is the motto for the Invictus Game, created by Prince Harry, but they have also special meaning to me. Those two words paired with another give me the strength I need to take on the day. I am loved. I am worthy. I am strong. I am.
Whenever I begin to worry, I just repeat my motto and remember I can do this. If my mom does have breast cancer (and hopefully, she won’t), my family will battle it like we do any challenge – together. If you’ve been following along to the blog, you can easily tell that my life is in a whirlwind right now. However, my “I Am” motto helps me keep my balance. What is yours?
