I answered the phone one Friday in May, just six days before school was out, and heard my tenth grade son’s history teacher say,
“Mrs. Rothschild.” (It’s never a good sign when a phone call begins with Mrs.) “Your son, Clayton, has a 69 in my class. He’s so bright and I know he can do better… I thought you could encourage him.”
Oh, yes. I was ready to “encourage” him!
I was upset, panicked, and feeling guilty that I hadn’t been more alert. I was a mixed up mess of emotions.
We all have days when we feel like we’re just not enough.
You know… strong enough, smart enough, creative enough, motivated enough, or whatever your “enough” is!
Every woman has felt that way. And, when we do, we can start believing the lie that says how we feel is who we are.
Right? Surely, I am not the only one?!
Oh girl, I know I’m not the only one.
As I walked off stage this past weekend, a woman grabbed my arm and said, “You are so much shorter in person than on video!”
I laughed because I’ve heard that before. I am only 5’2″ but with some hair poof and heels, I am a towering 5’5″! But, I’m still short and little no matter what.
“How tall are you anyway,” she asked.
“On the inside or the outside?” I answered. “I am really tall on the inside, I’m just small on the outside.”
