late night ponderings

I made a throwaway comment last night...

"I'm stronger than I look."

...and remembered it, as I was lying in bed, and I wondered to myself, what if that were really true?

What if...

And what if I rephrased and expanded that statement?
I'm stronger than I think I am.
I'm more creative than I give myself credit for.

Honestly, I'm afraid to go down that road.
What would my life look like if I really believed that those things were true?


  1. There's only one way to find out, Wendy...

  2. Follow the thoughts! We're so often our own worst critics

  3. Girls especially are taught to be "modest," but the habit of modesty often tends to deform into self-doubt and self-criticism by adulthood. I confess I find it exhausting sometimes to listen to my girlfriends put themselves down. For myself, I have been through the fire and survived so I do not suffer from this affliction very often -- whenever the "saboteur" starts talking in my head, I tell it to shut the hell up and go away. Make a practice of confidence every day and you will be surprised at how quickly it becomes a habit.

  4. hmmm, those are some questions worth pondering for sure!
