She loves the cool mornings of early fall and the chance to reestablish trusted routines with her family.
She is planning some new approaches to old things and that is sparking good things inside of her.
She believes that the anxiety, frustration and challenges she faces will ultimately work together for her good and teach her patience and a greater degree of compassion for others.
She loves light, enlightenment and illumination in all its forms.
She is (currently) at peace with the seemingly conflicting assignment to both self-accept and self-improve.
She is not yet who she wants to be, but she is closer than she was a year ago.
She is completely in awe of the women who read her blog and the conquering spirit they possess.
I am her.
Among other things, I am with this post issuing a challenge that you write a series of “she” statements about yourself and answer them with a resolute “I am her.” I told you that I am in love with this book and now I’m back to show you how I’m using it and planning to use it in the future …
First of all, I’m owning my copy by adding a personal touch to the cover.
This is my book.
I’m adding bits and pieces and little notes, inside. Some of these are very personal, some not so much. Either way I like the idea of creating a personal imprint throughout — after all, this is also my workbook!
I’m outlining and circling and boxing in words and phrases that resonate with me.
I’m using a little journaling stamp to create space for my thoughts and feelings.
I’m using this punch to create tabs, which I’m attaching to my most favorite pages.
One of my favorite quotes in the I am her book is this one, that I shared in my keynote at The Creative Connection …
“She puts on the shoes that make her stand tall, buttons her buttons, sees herself in the mirror: resilient and beautiful and ready. There is nothing she cannot meet with clear eyes and a willing heart and a strength that bubbles up inside of her like a spring.”
This book was written by M. H. Clark, I’m assuming this is her quote, as there is no other name listed.
If you have even 5 minutes to click on the comments from my first post about this book, I hope you will do it. I was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the things we are all wanting to conquer. Our individual and collective strength to live life is truly inspiring. I decided there was no way I could select winners by the content of their comment, so I’ve selected three women in random fashion.
The winners are:
