I’ve come to realize that a lot of people in my life see me in a way I don’t see myself. I don’t think the things I have done in my life have been extremely brave or adventurous.
I look at my life as a series of experiences some good and some bad, but I don’t think that I’m stronger than those who have come and gone in my life. I don’t think I’m stronger than the average chick.
My Auntie G has pointed out time and again the things that I have accomplished. She thinks I’m the bee’s knees. I don’t see myself that way. I don’t have low self esteem, I just see myself moving onto the next thing. I don’t think my mind is ever still. EVER.
I’ve traveled alone, I’ve packed up my home and moved across the country, I’ve been a single mom riding 5 buses to get to work, I made it through basic training as an element leader, I made it through leadership school as a honor graduate, but I did those things because that’s who I was in those moments. I didn’t STRIVE to be different, I didn’t STRIVE to stand out. I just did me.
Now that I’m in nursing school I still don’t see myself as special. I’m just doing me. Nothing super about it in my eyes.
I don’t think the things I’ve done in my life were all that extrordinary, because I do them oft time begrudgingly, but I try and give 100%.
In all honesty I don’t believe the things I do are all that super simply because it’s me doing them.
I ain’t super I’m just me.
