I Am What I Am. Saturday March 22, 2014

I was listening the other morning to Ken Bruce on BBC Radio 2, as I do, and heard this song by Gloria Gaynor:

And here are some of the words she sings... I've edited them a bit but, by the end you will get my message! The ones I want you to shout out today, preferably in front of a mirror and with the music playing:

I am what I am.

It's my world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Life's not worth a damn till I can say 
I am what I am
And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle

why not try to see things from a different angle

I am what I am

I am, I am, I am good

I am, I am, I am strong
I am, I am, I am worthy

I am, I am, I belong
I am, I am

Whoo, whoo, whoo

I am
I am, I am, I am useful
I am, I am, I am true
I am, I am, somebody
I am as good as you.


Now click on the You Tube link, turn up the volume and get singing.

I have copy of these lyrics framed on my wall ;-)

I know "love" is such a powerful word, and "I love you" are probably the three most powerful words in the language, but I'm always on the listen-out for what comes after people's "I Am..." statements. These powerful affirmations in the song write new history in anybody's life that says them often enough. "I Am Strong..." coupled with "I Am Good" makes for a transformative day - thank you Julia x

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed the sea...

Nice post, Julia.
