Today, The NotMom published a short essay that I wrote. You can read the entire post here.
All of us - every single one of us from all walks of life - have thoughts that tell us we aren't good enough or smart enough or pretty enough. If you think you're average and you act that way, then you are average.
I have spent my whole life feeling like I am nothing more than average. I have always been average and I would always be average. There has never been anything exceptional about me. I didn’t participate in sports as a kid. I didn’t win awards or get top grades. I possessed no discernible talent that set me apart from my peers.
