Via my regular reading of my friend Vivienne's blog, Be Your Own Beloved, I discovered Alexandra Franzen. And what a delight she is!
I have read pages of posts on her blog and so wish she would publish said posts in a book. I would read it and re-read it, lend it to a friend and then read it again.
When I signed up for Alexandra's newsletter she sent me (...but I am sure she would send you one too if you signed up as well), a copy of the great I AM worksheet. You can also find it on her blog here.
It is a fun exercise and one that I would like to do again to see how I have changed and evolved.
So for the record, here is who I AM (today):
I am a wife, mother and a Facilities Manager.
But really, I'm a dreamer, organizer, creator and idea generator.
I am amazing at loving my family and organizing the hell out of our household.
And I've devoted most of my life to searching for the one project I can sink my teeth into; the one where my mind, body and heart sing "yes, this is the one!"
When you work with me, you can expect encouragement and yes, lots of organization.
And you'll probably be surprised & delighted by my goal to smile and have fun while completing any task.
My work matters because I matter and I bring my own brand of optimism and problem solving to all things I work on.
And I am here to remind you that details and people all need attention.
My question for you is why judge when you can accept a situation or remove yourself from it when it doesn't fit in with your ideals?
To sum it up? I am an optimistic, friendly soul who has big creative dreams. I am a researcher and seeker of projects. I am a work in progress. I am Creating Harmony, one day at a time.
