I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own all my failures and mistakes but Jesus gets the triumphs and glory. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- only God knows those aspects, but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look and listen for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I will ask for forgivness and discard that which is unfitting, and have God invent something new for that which I discarded. God can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do everything in me. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of Him. I own me here on earth, God owns my heart and therefore, God and I together, can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.
