Road Trip Thinking

Long trips (especially by car) usually get me thinking about where I've been, where I'm going and mistakes/situations to avoid... if possible. You know... do more of 'this' and less of 'that'. And on this most recent trip I vowed to never, ever, ever (no, I wasn't channeling Taylor Swift) worry that I'm not good enough. Never. Ever. You want to judge me? Go ahead, I care not one whit.

I know that my self-confidence has taken a hit since my husband passed away. He was my biggest cheerleader. I'm too critical of myself and in the past, have worried too much about what others think. I may come from a long line of people-pleasers or else it's a female thing... but I am drawing a line in the sand now. Do me wrong and you'll be gone. (Now there's a song)

And when we worry about what others think we have setup ourselves for disappointments and hurts. Not good.

Actually you have a couple of good lines for a song in this post. "You want to judge me? Go ahead, I care not one whit." and "Do me wrong and you'll be gone.
