Seriously…what the hell is my problem?

Why do I let myself believe that I am not as smart as I am? Why does it take the things that people say offhandedly to remind me (both positively and negatively) that I have a terrific, strong mind for learning, knowing, and using?

I get overwhelmed sometimes when I think of what I feel I still don't know on topics that I am working on. And then when I start to feel like there's no hope, I realize how much knowledge I actually do have. Why don't I remember more often to use my existing knowledge as a jumping off point and have faith that I can learn what I don't know.

People believe in me far more than I believe in myself. I'm grateful for that, because without those reminders, I think I could slip into an unpleasant sort of madness.

I would rather live up to the expectations of my friends than succumb to the negativity of misconceptions that occasionally surround me. Yes, I value intelligence greatly, in myself and others.

I needed to hear this - YOU, today. I too value wisdom and I need to be living up to my potential. It is good to remember our baselines are not other people's baselines.

Pursue. Persevere. Prosper!!
