It’s Just Me… by Peg Haust-Arliss

So, I have this friend, and every time she calls me to leave a message she says: “Hi Peg, It’s just me……..” in her kind, carefree, slow monotone. I love you girlfriend, but I must say that every time I hear you say that I want to scream:
“AAHH what do you mean it’s JUST me!?”
It’s JUST me; REALLY??? Why must you minimize your importance! Why do you constantly minimize your inherent power and beauty? How can you not realize how magnificent you are? Even the fact that you walk this earth is nothing short of a spiritual and scientific miracle! Oh, but, it’s just me. YOU are unique! There is no other creature on this earth like you! Even identical twins are slightly different, but never mind that, it’s just me. If your parents never met, YOU, as you are, would not exist! YOU are a biological masterpiece! YOU cannot be replicated! OMG, you are crazy! I am going to kick your ass! Stop it! There is no JUST about you!! You ARE Love! You ARE Special! You ARE Divine!
However, if you are my client, you very well know that nothing has any meaning until we give it one. That being said, hmm, what else could this mean? Maybe it just means: “Hi Peg, call me.”
