Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

When I type the blog post title I feel a little like a fraud.  Do you ever
have those feelings of being a pretender or an imposter - just waiting
for someone to figure out that you're not all that (and a bag of chips!)?

There's an actual phenomenon known as "imposter's syndrome"....it
basically means that someone is acting a certain part (like being a CEO and
waiting for someone to figure out you're just like the next guy).

As we get older we become (hopefullly) more comfortable in just being
who we are and caring a little less about what others are thinking about us.
For me it was one of the true blessings of getting older - becoming more
comfortable in my own skin!

Along those lines - here's a little quote for your mid-week wise words:

Let the world know you as you are, not
 as you think you should be, because
sooner or later, if you are posing,
you will forget the pose, and
then where are you? 
~Fanny Brice~


Blessings & Hugs all'round!

Cute post--I am so myself that sometimes I think maybe I should change myself up a bit for my blog. But then--that would be too much work. :) My life may be a little boring to some..but I enjoy it :)

I love that advice. I have found that writing a blog has helped me learn to except myself more. I found your lovely blog at the blog hop on The Sasse Life. I'm now following you Via GFC and Linky. I would love it if you would come visit me.
I hope you have a great day.
