I Was Reminded How Awesome I Am

18 Sep



I had forgotten my awesomeness.

Whenever you’re going through a rough patch, during the quiet moments of the night, you don’t feel like yourself. You don’t see yourself. You stick to distractions and try to picture who you used to be. Most of the time when you’re in this state construction you don’t see it. All you see are the bits and pieces. But then someone that matters, someone that always sees you the way you want to be seen, says something and it clicks.

You have that oh-yeah moment.

I originally saw this image on Diary of a Quirky Girl’s website. I thought to myself this is totally my son … this is totally my daughter. They are awesome. And as I was printing it out, my son noticed it and smiled.

I read it to him and he said …”Mom, you’re pretty awesome too.”



Yeah … that’s me in this picture.

    How perfect, just like you! It is times like this when it is nice to have those little reminders, reminders to paraphrase The Beatles, to “Get back to where you want to belong.” You sound like you have a lovely family, full of love. Awesome definitely takes awareness and others bringing it to our attention when we have forgotten. Thank you for posting this and for posting back to me! Never forget your own awesomeness girl!!! 🙂

    Wow! That’s what it’s all about. When it comes from the mouths of babes who see it like it is. . 🙂

    You are awesome, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. 🙂

      Thanks chica. It’s so great to get support and to be reminded that you’re awesome when you’re down in the dumps.

    You are so right that we all are awesome in our own ways. We do easily forget that fact. You do have to be pretty awesome in order to produce awesome kids. After all, aren’t they little pieces of us? I use to always be called, “Little Pam.” Now my daughter is called, “Little Crystal” and the sad fact is she is almost the spittin’ image of me. In some ways that concerns me because she’s one demanding little bugger. 😉

      Yeah we do forget it sometimes because life gets all crazy or someone says something to make you forget. But it’s good that there are people out there or moments out there that check you back in. And thanks for the props about kids…sometimes as a mom you think you are constantly failing so when your kid or someone else like you puts everything in perspective it gets you back on track. 🙂 And it’s good that your daughter is demanding. It means she’s gonna be a strong woman who knows what she wants. I like that. It’s powerful 🙂
