I am

We had this on teh old forums, and I think it was Gail or DelicateDreamer that started it.

Does anyone remember it? Or remember what the main idea behind it was? All I can remember is there ended up being some quiet long posts, and it really helped me when things were going wrong... Can anyone help me out here?

I saved a couple of my posts of this exercise as a reminder of the good attributes about me when things are going bad... so I'll post them as an example...

 

I think it came under mindfulness or something similar?

Re: I am

The idea behind it was that when things are getting messy and confusing, it's really easy to start feeling like we don't have a place in the world and like we're not sure where we fit in... So by grounding ourselves with reminders of the things that we ARE, we can start getting those foundations of our identity back which can help us work out where we're standing and where we want to move to from here.
