Who I Am

I am the mother of an extraordinary child
I am the wife of an imaginative man
I am the daughter of two of the coolest parents ever
I am the sister of two amazing and brilliant individuals
I am the Aunt of two bright and beautiful little girls
I am a Granddaughter who has not had nearly enough time to know and appreciate the people who came before her the way that they deserve
I am the friend that you can call in the middle of the night when you need a shoulder to cry on, or even if you just want to talk
I am a teacher
I am an eternal student
I am the coworker who will work extra hours for you so that you can go home when you don't feel well even though I really don't want to
I am the stranger on the street who will look into your eyes and smile a genuine smile
I am the woman who will turn in the lost wallet full of hundred dollar bills with every single bill still in it's place even if I can't afford to buy my groceries that week
I am a lazy person who would rather sit down and stare into space than clean the bathroom
I am the bus passenger who will give up her seat to someone else at the end of a long day
I am the optimist who is always looking for the brighter side to every bad situation
I am a person who craves attention and accolades for her accomplishments
I am the shy little girl who is scared people will make fun of her
I am frequently paranoid that people are saying or thinking negative things about me behind my back...but I'm getting better.
I am selfish
I am honest to a fault
I am unbelievably sarcastic, which often gets me into trouble
I am stubborn
I am weak, but I am also strong
I am silly
I am serious
I am still that same crazy girl I was when I was 15
I am a responsible adult
I am a procrastinator in a big way
I am NOT an athlete, though I wish that I was
I am a lover of books
I am a singer, but only if there is no one around to hear me
I am an aspiring photographer
I am a wannabe writer
I am a proud Blockhead
I am a twitter addict
I am too many things to list
I am simply....
