It is very late 1 AM. I am very tired. I will be up, awake, and will get in the shower and get dressed. No, I will NOT get dressed IN the shower, youse guys! Because of the lateness, and commitments, I just cannot get a posting out today. So, from way down Barefoot Bob's AA Pages (click here), I am posting this piece, one of my favorites. It is about....
I am the only "me" I've got. I am unique. There are two major parts of me. There is the inside "me" and the outside "me".
The outside "me" is what you see. The way I act, the image I portray, the way I look and the things I do.
The outside "me" is very important. It is my messenger to the world and much of my outside me is what communicates with you.
I value what I have done, the way I look, and what I share with you. The inside "me" knows all my feelings, my secret ideas, and my many hopes and dreams. Sometimes I let you know a little bit about the inside "me" and sometimes it's a very private part of myself.
Even though there are an enormous number of people in this world, no one is exactly like "me". I take full responsibility for "me" and the more I learn about myself, the more responsibility I am going to take. You see, my "me" is my responsibility. As I know myself more and more, I find out that I am an OK person. I've done some good things in life because I am a good person. I have accomplished some things in my life because I am a competent person. I know some special people because I am worth knowing. I celebrate the many things I have done for myself.
I also made mistakes. I can learn from them. I have also known some people who did not appreciate me. I do not need to keep those people in my life. I've wasted some precious time. I can make new choices now. As long as I can see, hear, feel, think, change, grow and behave, I have great possibilities, and I am going to grow and love and be and celebrate. I AM WORTH IT.
Love, and Peace,
