Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Ann was going through life, smiling on the outside, dying on the inside. Hiding in plain sight, taking care of everything and everyone around her. She didn’t feel like she was enough.
The “AHA” Moment
Shortly before her mother took her last breath, she told Ann how she had not pursued her dreams, because she had been afraid. She didn’t feel worthy. She didn’t feel good enough. It was difficult for her to talk above a whisper and she called Ann close – “real close,”she said. And then her ah ha moment came. Holding Ann’s hand, her mom said, “Don’t let your dreams die inside you.”
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Overflowing with joy even when things don’t go the way she wants them. Even when people disappointment her, or she disappoints herself. Having confidence means being able to look myself in the mirror and say, I AM MORE THAN ENOUGH!
