Winnie the Pooh Wisdom

"You are BRAVER than you believe, STRONGER than you seem, and SMARTER than you think."
-Winnie the Pooh (emphasis mine)
Today, this quote has been ringing in my head like crazy. Self-esteem has been an issue ALL of my life, and the biggest part of that was that I was never willing to believe that I was capable of anything great. That sounds awful, and if I heard someone else saying it, I would be pretty alarmed, but it's SO true about me.
Lately, I'm feeling really STRONG and BRAVE, and SMART for so many reasons (oh, the modesty! :) ).
Today, I feel STRONG because I am pushing myself beyond what I ever thought capable, and every time I complete something (or modify it so that I can finish it).
Today, I feel BRAVE because as I achieve each small goal, I believe in myself a little more. I am starting to believe that I might just be brave enough to battle and win this huge fight ahead of me.
Today, I feel SMART because I am outwitting my own negative thoughts. I am proving all of those previous beliefs about my unworthiness and incompetence to be untrue.
I'm by no means "cured" or have it all figured out. I am just feeling a little boost of confidence today, and so I'm going to roll with it!
