I am awesome!
Friday, April 10, 2015
I decided something yesterday and this is HUGE for me. I AM AWESOME!! I have spent most of my adult life feeling not good enough for two main reasons. 1. I quit college and 2. I am overweight. I come from a very small town. 7 girls in my graduating class. Of those girls, one went on to work in Washington DC helping to write speeches for the President. One became a physical therapist. One who was NOT athletic at all went on to compete in a fitness competition last year. What have I done??? That is, until yesterday! While relistening to a Jon Acuff book recommended by Brigid Wollack it hit me. Those are THEIR awesomes!! I have to focus on my own awesome and I am an AWESOME mom!!! I am one of those moms that braids hair in the morning and makes homemade banana bread for after school snack. I volunteer to go on school trips and therefore will be chaperoning 16 teenagers this weekend! LOL!! I go out of my way to make everyday special while still keeping my kids grounded and focused on the future. I have a rather clean house and happy pets and I do all this with a husband who is home 24 - 48 hours most weekends but occasionally (like now) is gone for 2 weeks at a time. I am a Sunday School teacher and a youth group leader so I can make sure my kids learn about God. Now, I am not asking for anyone to sing my praises. In fact, I feel a bit boastful but I think all of this is important in helping me determine my self worth. I AM AWESOME!!
