Do you ever surprise yourself with how smart you are?
I do, all the time. Now, I know that for the most part I'm a fairly intelligent woman, but I don't always give myself credit. You see, I have so many smart friends and acquaintances that I just don't think I compare. They've done things. They've been places. They speak so much more eloquently than I do. I'm probably selling myself short, but I often just sit in a corner and feel dumb.
But not this week, no sirree. I'm solving crises left and right over here. And I just solved a great mystery involving years of billing invoices, matching product to paperwork, FINDING the product to begin with and many other things that have, until now, been unsolvable. I looked at the puzzle, put two and two together and came up with "Ta Da!" I felt like a genius being the one to figure it all out.
Then, I was asked by no less than three people to define a word I used in casual conversation, which truth be told made me feel a little pretentious, but they weren't big words, folks.
I know, it's not quantum physics, but I'll take my little victories where I can get them.
