I Am...Explore These Two Powerful Words

09 March 2017 Written by 

“I am …” is one of the most powerful statements that I can make. Whatever follows “I am …” starts the creation of it. Anytime I start a sentence with “I am,” I am actually creating what I am and what I want to be.

Within me lies the power of the universe to become transformed, if only I choose to call on it. If I speak and say, “I am harsh. I am angry. I am impatient. I am judgmental” these are the forces within me that I am calling on to be created in my life.

However, if I choose to speak of those things I would desire to become and long to be, I can just as easily speak those out. “I am patient. I am kind. I am loving. I am accepting.” I call these my intentions. When I carefully and thoughtfully choose my intentions, and focus on them every day, slowly and carefully these begin to unfold and be created in my life. What I set my heart on will become mine as I move forward toward my intentions.

I love this quote from Lao Tzu:

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits; Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

I get to choose exactly which destiny I want for myself, and speak it into being.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
