I Am

I wrote a poem following my recent several months of mental struggles with no money, finding a career job, moving from my family home in a dead rural town to a ten-bed hostel in a new city where I knew nobody, meanwhile trying to save my disintegrating romantic relationship that was not long ago very loving and promising. These factors all influenced each other and one of the core things that helped keep me motivated and strong within myself was practising guided meditation to keep loving myself.


I am here.
I am in the present.
I am questioning my life.
I am the answer to my questions.

I am wherever I want to be.
I am whenever I want to be.
I am however I want to be.
I am whoever I want to be.
I am more than my education.
I am more than my occupation.
I am more than my situation.
I am more than my failures.
I am more than my history.
I am more than my thoughts.
I am more than my emotions.
I am more than your opinions.
I am more than your expectations.
I am not less than you.
I am not more than you.
I am more than who you think I am.
I am not the projection of your insecurities.
I am not scarce.
I am not a victim.
I am fluid.
I am letting go.

I am letting go of the past.
I am letting go of my regrets.
I am letting go of my pain.
I am letting go of my anger.
I am letting go of what should be.
I am letting go of comparison.
I am letting go of judgement.
I am letting go what I cannot control.
I am surrendering.
I am no longer hesitating.
I am embracing my fears.
I am going to do it anyway.
I am my own poison.
I am my own medicine.
I am my own best teammate.
I am the outcome of my own choices.
I am not here forever.
I am hungry.
I am no longer waiting.
I am no longer living in the chase.
I am taking risks.
I am ready.

I am potential.
I am capable.
I am fierce.
I am courageous.
I am limitless.
I am in control.
I am power.
I am influence.
I am creative.
I am with voice.
I am with vision.
I am with touch.
I am listening.
I am feeling.
I am wholesome.
I am perfectly imperfect.
I am learning.
I am knowledge.
I am growing.
I am persevering.
I am the author of my own story.
I am the agent of my future.
I am the change I want to see in the world.
I am inspiration.
I am welcoming challenges.
I am adventurous.
I am true to myself.
I am honest.
I am proud.
I am supportive.
I am forgiving myself.
I am forgiving you.
I am respectful.
I am to be respected.
I am trustworthy.
I am trusting you.
I am generous.
I am grateful.
I am empathetic.
I am compassionate.
I am peace.
I am nature.
I am human.
I am unique.
I am beautiful.
I am energy.
I am love.
I am deserving of love
I am deserving of life.
I am to smile.
I am to laugh.
I am to dance.
I am to sing.
I am worth it.
I am of value.
I am all that I need.
I am enough.

I am awake.
I am a soul.
I am free.
I am living.
I am in the present.
I am here.
So are you.

I am Antonia.
