Who Am I?

I haven't blogged in so long, I don't know if anyone even looks anymore, but maybe I will get back into it. For my senior English class we are doing a senior memoir project where we write a series of memories and thoughts in the form of chapters. I will probably be sharing those, this is one of them. 

 Who am I?
I am a dreamer.
A sister, daughter and friend.
I am a lover of those around me,
A giver of hope to those who need kind words,
A listener to the hurting,
and a giver of advice to those who need direction in life.
I am a caretaker and a worker.
I laugh.
Music is in my soul.
I am addicted to Mountain Dew
I enjoy the sweetness and caffeine rush of iced coffee.
I wear cowboy boots, a country girl.
Simple is what I am.
A believer in Christ who died for me.
I believe beauty is more than skin deep, I look for the good in people.
Sometimes I am quick to complain, so I remind myself to look up daily.
I’m a thinker and often over analyze things.
I am the middle child.
I grew up rough and tumble with the boys, I’m not scared of a fight.
I worry.
Many days I am simply a mess.
I have traveling in my blood.
South Dakota is my home, and my heart always wants to come home,
Open fields and endless skies call my name.
I am a lover of words and a reader of books.
My only goal in life is to be content with where I am.
I’m the girl who falls easily and cares deeply.
I find beauty in the little things of life.
I am an imperfect being in an imperfect world.
Every day I learn more about myself:
I am a work in progress.
