Who am I?  - 01

 

Am I my name

that’s spelled and called

rolodexed and scrawled

printed on my certificate of birth

engraved on my stone of death?

 

Who am I?  - 02

 

Am I my gender

that appoints me a color

that dictates my behavior

that tells me what gender

I can and can’t love?

 

Who am I?  - 03

 

Am I my job

that assigns my tasks

that pays my bills

that takes my time

that distracts me from

where I truly belong?

 

Who am I?  - 04

 

Am I my government

who enforces my corrections

who programs my perceptions

who controls through deceptions?

 

Who am I?  - 05

 

Am I my family

who birthed me

who supported me

who abandoned me

who loves me

who hurts me?

 

Who am I?  - 06

 

Am I my culture

who showed me

when and how to use my mouth

when and how to move myself

when and where to expose myself?

 

Who am I?  - 07

 

If I am what I eat

am I all that I consume?

 

Who am I?  - 08

 

Am I my clothes my car my home

my stacking washer drier

my ultra lash mascara

my designer diaper bag

my stash of dirty mags?

 

Who am I?  - 09

 

Am I vegan raw gluten free?

Am I low carb paleo grass fed beef?

Am I free range organic raised naturally?

 

Who am I?  - 10

 

Am I the things that I do or don’t do?

The miles that I run

the projects I complete

the chores that go undone

the books I never read?

 

Who am I?  - 11

 

Am I the things that I do or don’t say?

The opinions I profess

the emotions I repress

the expression I dare not share

the chatter I release without care?

 

Who am I?  - 12

 

Am I my addictions?

My oral fixations

my sexual relations

my material attachments

my emotional reactions?

 

Who am I?  - 13

 

Am I what I fear most?

The monster under the bed

the spider above my head

the money I may never make

the possibility of vulnerability and heartbreak?

 

Who am I?  - 14

 

Am I the wounds that I carry through life

the scars from my past traumas

the pain of my ongoing dramas?

 

Who am I?  - 15

 

Am I a collection of the stories I believe?

That tell me right from wrong

that tell me what I can achieve?

 

Who am I?  - 16

 

Am I the ugliness I sometimes feel?

The body that should be thinner

the face that should be fairer

the mind that should be calmer

the heart that should be stronger?

 

Who am I?  - 17

 

Or am I just this being?

 

Who am I?  - 18

 

Who sees with these eyes

who breathes with this breath

who tastes with this mouth?

 

Who am I?  - 19

 

Who moves with this body

who thinks with this mind

who feels with this heart?

 

Who am I?  - 22

 

Who laughs and cries

who suffers and aches

who rejoices and celebrates?

 

Who am I?  - 21

 

Who has an inner fire that burns

with passion and intention

with the ability to release

without a moment of apprehension?

 

Who am I?  - 20

 

Who has the innate wisdom

the unfailing intuition

the unlimited propensity

to transform endlessly?

 

Who am I?  - 23

 

Who exists in this moment

that comes and goes

that ebbs and flows?

 

Who am I?  - 24

 

Am I just this being

who can choose to be anything

who can choose to be everything

who can choose to be nothing?

 

Who am I?  - 25

 

Am I that?

Am I none of that?

Am I all of that?

Am I so much more than that?

Hello beautiful soul, 

In August 2018 I stopped blogging as This American Girl. Six years ago I started this blog with a simple desire to share my heart and ended up creating a revolution among millions of free spirits wanting something greater for their lives. And now, it's time to keep growing together. If you want to take a quantum leap in what you can create in your reality, I invite you to join The Freedom Tribe, where I share all of my guidance for the freedom lifestyle. Then, hop over to my new website camillewillemain.com where I'm sharing my new message and brand. Thank you for your interest and investment in This American Girl, whether today or for many years. Wishing you a bright and beautiful continuation of your journey. 

So much love,
Camille
