I was working on a project today. And had someone ask me in front of a group if I was sure of the answer. As much as I like to think I’m getting better at this whole letting go and not taking things personally thing, this was a flaming reminder that I am still working on it.
But, oddly, I am grateful for the experience. It made me think about all the opportunities we have within ourselves to do the same thing internally that she did publicly. I did manage to keep my head from spinning as I replied that yes I was quite sure. And then it hit me: how often do I do this to myself on a daily basis? Think about it…you look in the mirror feeling good about what you’ll see and that little voice says “not so much.”. You feel lighter and stronger, but then weigh and see the number and immediately think “I already messed up this week, pass me some cake.” I could give examples all afternoon, but you don’t need mine. You have your own…
How often do we listen to the voice that says I’m NOT? What would happen if we listened to the one that said I AM?
It’s not always easy, but I’m taking it a day at a time. And that inner bitch is gonna shut up. Because I AM. I AM smart, funny, pretty, strong, determined. I AM ENOUGH of everything. What are you? Take some time today to remember.
