Today’s theme has lightly been confidence.
There are two lovely ladies that I know that stared down their uncertainty this morning and moved forward. There is a quote . . something like: courage isn’t the absence of fear, but acting in spite of fear.
I was driving to my appointments thinking about these women today. I thought about writing about it. But I really don’t want this to be all “women power” stuff. Because, men get scared too. I used to be a little more “women power” in my thinking. But, I’ve got 2 boys as well as 2 girls. And I see the boys struggle too. My soul has troubles with “women power”. It should just be “power” and “confidence”. It is for everyone.
There are times in life that I’ve struggled with some kinds of confidence, but it hasn’t been an overall theme in life. I think to how God designed me, and I see points throughout my life where I have had more confidence or more courage than I probably should have. This isn’t an area that I naturally struggle with. If anything, my weakness is more being overly confident 🤣 But with this being a gift, I truly hope that I can share it with others. I feel blessed in moments like this morning, with both lovely ladies, where I can be a cheerleader! And celebrate their wins with them!!
If you ever need a cheerleader to remind you how strong you are, call me 🙂 I know I wouldn’t be so confident without God. I’d most likely be dead by now honestly. I think to some of my moments of over-confidence where God must have sent half of Heaven’s angels to have my back. But, that is where my confidence comes from – I know God will always send those angels! Anyway, those are stories for another time 🙂
Tonight I am thankful for getting to be a witness to two wonderful ladies be brave, confident, and bold this morning! What a great day!
