5 Minute Challenge: I AM ______?

Inspired-Housewife: 5 Minute Challenge I AM _______ Do you know who you are?  Only 5 minutes to write unedited about yourself.  #IAM #Whoareyou?

Yesterday I read a blog post from You Know It Happens at Your House Too she and According to Mags challenged bloggers and anyone to take 5 minutes and write unedited, with no stops who you are.  I read hers and then several she shared on her Facebook wall and it hit me that I needed to join the challenge.  Not to share it to the world, but to write it down on paper and then reexamine it today.  I love what I wrote, I love my honesty and so I decided to share it as it will help you all get to know me a bit better.  I also challenge you to take 5 precious minutes to write down I AM ___________ and see what pours out of your heart and soul.

You do not need to share it like I am, but if you do and want share with me please send it by e-mail.  I can also share it with others on my Inspired-Housewife wall too.  I will not use your name, but after reading some from other women I found myself laughing, cheering, and even a tear or two.

5 Minute Challenge:  I AM ___________?

I am an almost mid 30’s woman who is finally getting comfortable in her own skin.
I am a woman who is tired, who feels pulled in every direction of her life.  Who feels she wishes there were more hours in the day or at least arms.
I am a woman who is madly in love with her husband and thinks he is so sexy!  My hubby makes my heart happy and brings a smile to my face when he walks into a room.
I am a woman who is blessed with three beautiful children and loves to play and cuddle with them.
I am a woman who has moments of wishing her son was not special because he is exhausting, but I LOVE HIM!
I am a perfectionist who needs to relax a little or maybe a lot!
I am too hard on myself, I am never good enough or I never do enough – either way I am a work in progress. :)
I have a huge heart, I love my family, I love my friends.
I am strong, I am passionate, I am loving, I am kind, I am fierce, I am sexy and I believe in living in truth and being honest and open with others about my struggles.
Sometimes I struggle to get out of bed, sometimes I wish I had a different life, but at least it is my life.
I love to sing and I use to be really good at it too.
I love to cook and I wish I knew how to sew.
I love art and I love to write and this blog is one of my outlets.

Now it is your turn to sit down and write in 5 minutes I am  ______________.

      Hi Mkkiki,

      Made my heart swell! Beautiful words and God bless you for everything you do. I do not know how you single mom’s do it, but I know your kids will be proud and take care of you when they are older.

      Hugs to you!

      Thank you so much it was really hard to write unedited in five minutes. I did not do it to share it, but life lately has been rough. I figured it would be therapeutic to write this challenge, but this morning I loved what I wrote and felt the need to share. Xoxoxox back at you. :). Amee
