It feels as though suddenly (at 32 years old) I am teaching university students in their first year and possible first classes in college, and I find my Dad's voice humming my ears. When I was growing up, he would repeat this phrase:
My identity became tied to graduating college: "I AM going to be 21 with a degree."
The what/how/when/where were minor checklist details because the commitment was set.
I AM grateful every day for the rewards of his statement.
I AM is the highest level on a scale of change and goal setting, above "I want to, I could, I plan to..."
What are your I AM statements about your future?
Days continue to pass and you will be older: with or without regard.
