But for today, the assignment is a bit shorter.
Assignment to you fabulous ladies: So today, turn the TV off from all those
'Hollywood magazine' type shows, put down that magazine that's harping on your
out-of-date clothing and tell me something that has given you a higher
self-esteem. That's right. Brag about yourself or share something that someone
said nice about you or whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Take a
break from pulling yourself down when you look at the mirror first thing in the
morning. (Nobody should look in the mirror first thing in the morning
I think the nicest thing that I've ever heard anyone say about me was about 17 years ago. I was working at a gas station while I finished my associates degree. My manager and another employee were talking about my work and how I dealt with customers when the manager said:
"Supercool Hotmama just SHINES!" *
I've thought back on that comment often.
I think it means so much to me
it wasn't about my looks,
or my work,
or my brains,
or my sense of humor...
it was just about me.
My spirit, shining through.
How often does one get a compliment like that!?!
*and of course, she called me Supercool Hotmama, because even back then my blogging destiny was taking shape!
