Several years ago I attended a class to help me overcome my obstacles, face my fears and remember who I am. We were asked to write a poem about ourselves that included all four elements of nature. I am inspired to post this by a MommyPerks post of a poem about her by her son. And maybe the never-ending rainstorm in Los Angeles got me thinking too. When I reread this poem I wrote almost six years ago from my perspective now it makes me smile. It represents who I want to be every day. And more importantly, it represents how my husband and daughter see me no matter how I feel about myself. They LOVE me unconditionally and can see past all of my imperfections and issues. How grateful I am to be in a place where people who inspire me to be in the fullest expression of who I am surround me. I am creative. I am passionate! I am inspired! I am a force of nature.

I am Fire.
I light the way to truth
and warm it’s bitter, frigid sting
With a dazzling glow of loving humor.
I am water.
I softly flow and wash away fear and doubt
with mesmerizing song.
I sparkle and dance in the light of God’s love.
I am wind.
I blow away the dust of yesterday’s regret.
I billow in the sails of a thousand ships
destined for tomorrow.
I am earth.
I am grounded yet I kiss the sky
with mountains of possibility.
I grow and change with every season into beauty.
