Can I just take a second to let you know that I think you’re awesome?
Oh, I know what you’re thinking. And you’re wrong. Because you absolutely are indeed awesome. You are the most awesome to have ever awesomed.
If you’re like me, you probably struggle with self-confidence on the regular. It’s really easy to shrug off any form of compliment as being nothing more than a person simply trying to make you feel better, instead of anything grounded in reality.
But you know what? The truth is, you’re just awesome.
Just take it. Acknowledge to yourself that you are, indeed, awesome. That you may not always do all the things you wish you had done, that maybe there are things you regret, but you are just another human here on this planet we call earth and you are doing the best you can, and that’s pretty darn awesome.
Like, how easy would it be to phone it all in and give up and live life at its most minimal? To just let life happen around you without any sort of ambition or dreams.
But that’s not you. You have things you’re doing. And maybe you’re not always putting all of your effort toward them, but you’re doing them.
And that makes you awesome.
Humans are cool in that we always dream for more. We have ambition. We know that we can be more than we are today. That’s how all of the greatest innovations on this planet have ever come about. And you, even if you don’t come up with the next sliced bread, are a part of that grand tradition.
Also, just think about the person who came up with sliced bread and how little of a thing it probably felt to them. Like, it’s just bread, but in pieces. Yet, it’s the marker by which we gauge all great things today.
Maybe your thing will go down in history as the next sliced bread. Perhaps your little side hustle is going to be something that someone sees and inspires them to do their own thing.
Maybe you’ll never get anywhere yourself, but you’ll spark someone else to do something amazing. And that alone makes you awesome.
So, keep doing you. Even if doing you means that you’re going to sit on the couch today and do absolutely nothing.
You deserve it. Because you’re awesome.
