My therapist says that what we do is who we are.
What I Do:
I teach 25 pairs of ears how to be respectful listeners.
I teach 25 pairs of eyes how to read, write, and do math, discover, and look deeper.
I teach 25 pairs of hands how to play fair, cooperate, and explore.
I teach 25 mouths to ask questions, to communicate kindly, and share knowledge.
I teach 25 brains how to think, wonder, and reflect; how to be curious, and creative.
I teach 25 hearts how to be thoughtful, empathetic, and giving; caring and brave.
I teach from my heart...... and I'm pretty good at what I do.
Who I am:
I am the daughter of dysfunctional parents.
I am the sister of challenging siblings.
I am lacking in self-confidence and self-esteem.
I am an unsuccessful peace-keeper.
I am filled with self-doubt and worry.
I am unsure of myself.
I am afraid of the world.
Continuing on the theme of trust, and holding on to the idea that my therapist believes what we do is who we are, well......
I think what I do is pretty darn awesome. If only I could merge with who I am, more like who I *think* I am.....
I trust my therapist, so hopefully that means the merger will happen soon?
