Last night, a thought occurred to me that even the most confident people have days when they don’t feel too confident. I most certainly have them. I am a confident woman. I know where my talents are, I know all of my good qualities and bad, and I know who I am and what I want.
If I don’t like something, I take steps to change it and if it cannot be changed, I find ways to embrace it.
For the past decade, I have felt a peace I never before knew. Yet there are days when I don’t feel as confident as I should.
There are still times when I feel insecure and nervous. There are times when I feel my old shyness trying to creep back in.
However, I refuse to give in to it and sometimes have to give myself pep talks to make the insecurity go away, then face the fear head-on.
I believe everyone has those days and I do not toil over my less than good days like I used to. I have accepted it as a part of being human and when insecurity does rear its ugly head, I either use my mind to make it go away, or I just let it pass.
Even if you are a happy and confident person, there will be days when things go wrong and there’ll be days when you just aren’t feeling it.
So, I hope you remember that just because you are having a day when you don’t feel so good, it does not mean that you are not a strong, resilient, and confident person. It just means that you are human and just like everyone else, you will have downtimes and bad times. Just keep the faith because those times never last.
