Who I Am

I know this sounds kind of dorky, but there's one country song I listened to that fits me, almost to a lyric.
It's a 2001 song - "Who I Am" by Jessica Andrews. I think the song talks about being proud of yourself, both your strengths and weaknesses. And knowing that people believe in you.
The chorus goes, "I am Rosemary's granddaughter, the spitting image of my father and when the day is done, my mama's still my biggest fan. Sometimes, I'm clueless and I'm clumsy, but I've got friends who love me and they know where I stand, it's all a part of me, that's Who I Am."
Well, my late grandmother was Rose, a lot of people tell me I look like my dad and my mom probably is my biggest supporter. Yes, sometimes I can be clueless and clumsy. But I have loyal friends.
I think there's more people that can relate to this song than I originally thought. It's so upbeat with such a positive message. The same message I could have received by reading 20 self-help books. That's probably why it was such a big hit six years ago.
