Monday Morning Motivation: Repeat After Me; I Don’t Care!

Hi all! Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Tired? Need a little get up and go? Well try this on for size.

Ella, the crack assistant, sent me this video the other day of Oprah talking to actress Viola Davis about her life-long struggles with low self-esteem. I found it so interesting, listening to this woman who is on top of the world, recognized as one of the best in her field after her turn in the blockbuster movie, The Help, talk about being almost crippled by what other people thought of her.

Many of us have been there before haven’t we? Whether in a new job or neighborhood, we want so badly to be liked but you have to take a moment and get real. How much time are you willing to spend to make that happen?

So sit back and take a listen to today’s Monday Morning Motivation, then repeat after me..

    I’ve made this comment before . . . but for so many years I had zero self-esteem. Some of it from being just a bit different in a small town and small high school where conformity was the norm. Much of it being uncomfortable in my own skin.
    I was lucky. I found someone who saw what I was and wanted to be underneath all that and she helped me to overcome it – sans therapy. I worried when she passed away that I’d fall back in that shell, that I’d wonder about my value again. But I don’t. Sometimes you need that perspective, the person to tell you you’re being silly and now I have the same people who I thought disliked or turned their noses at me really admired me and if I’d taken a moment to look and listen . . . I’d have seen that.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
