This idea came to me at a moment when I was doubting myself. I was telling my friend that I didn't know how I could possibly inspire others, who would listen? Who would care? How can I get my message across so that others will hear it and take it to heart? I will never forget the words my friend said to me, she said "Because you are memorable!" And that stuck with me. So I made a T-shirt with the word "[I feel] Memorable" on it. It is not enough to say "I AM...", it is important to feel it, so that it becomes true. And when I am doubting myself, I have a T-shirt with a reminder across my heart space! It also gets people curious, and promotes conversation.
Don't allow others to determine how you feel! Another experience I had, was with my Physician. I had been telling her for several years how I had been feeling physically, knowing and being absolutely certain there was something going on with my body. She wouldn't acknowledge how I felt, and she certainly didn't follow through with evaluating my concerns. With her insinuations, I felt that it was somehow my fault, I was doing something wrong, and after awhile I let it go. Years later, I could not ignore it any longer and I went into my physicians office and demanded some tests, despite her push back, I won out and that's when it was discovered that I had a hormone secreting tumor the size of a gold ball covering my Pituitary Gland...it was wreaking havoc on my body. I am still battling complications from this diagnosis and I will be for the remainder of my life. However, it was a good wake up call for me, I won't keep quiet ever again.
This got me thinking, if there are times I need a reminder, or the guts, or the freedom to feel how I feel, well then, why not tell the world?! Why can't others know how we are feeling? Maybe we can offer some added positive support to one another?
That is how The I Feel Movement began, and it continues to evolve! I took it a step further by creating a hand-made, hand stamped ringer style T-shirt with a variety of words...maybe today you feel "unstoppable" and tomorrow you feel "beautiful".
