I got the sweetest email from one of my Bunco girls after Bunco last week: “I am working on being a little more like you. You always seem to just have this self confidence about you. Its really nice. I am working on being less shy and more social.”  How sweet is that??  Oh my goodness I have just been floating since then.  And yeah, I’m pretty self confident, but I also know my faults and shortcomings.  Plus I have this anxiety I deal with every day.  Add that to this adoption that is taking waaaay longer than we planned (no news, still on the wait list), and I can get pretty down.  Sometimes I have to fake it til I make it, you know?  So it was certainly a nice boost to get this email.  I made sure to send her back a nice email too.

  1. Awww…how sweet of her! And I know what you mean. I have what some people might say (a weight problem) but I don’t think of it that way. I think I look good and I don’t let society’s standard of beauty get me down. My fiance loves the way I look and as long as I exercise and I’m healthy- what difference does it make if I’ve got a few extra curves…?

  2. see, but there’s the secret to your confidence: knowing yourself.. it really is true what they say, to know someone is to love someone…and recognizing our flaws/limitations is part of that…

    i like you, i really like you
