I Can-You Just Don’t Know It

If you don’t think I can –

And you don’t believe in me –

I will always be able to say you will never know.

You will never be able to say I didn’t. Or I couldn’t. Or I wouldn’t.

But I will always know.

And you never will.



Don’t let what someone else thinks become what you believe.

    my message for the day..thank you 🙂

  2. That could be scary!!! :^)

    • I know. Can you imagine, believing about yourself what other’s think?

      I almost put a disclaimer up. This didn’t come from an “experience” but a thought I had about something. And it was kind of empowering to think about it without having to talk myself through something. So I thought I would share it. Like a preventative!!!! 🙂

      • Oh my, if I believed about myself what others thought…well it’s kind of crazy and weird at the same time. I don’t want to go on too much about this, but there was a recent chain of events that had a whole group of mothers mad at me. I guess there is always a relative right and wrong, but I couldn’t believe how upset they became in this particular circumstance. I’m sure you can imaging the kind of self doubt I felt. I kind of gave in to them just to end the whole thing but I’m still kind of shocked the something like that could have happened.

        • Shock. That’s a good word Marissa. I’m sorry you’ve gone through that. I have often struggled with the idea or perception of what I believe others have thought. It would bother me that others thought that. I didn’t let what I believed they thought convince ‘me’ that I was what they thought. But I would have such a difficult time dealing with the idea that anyone ‘thought’ that of me. If any of that makes sense, I’m trying to say I get what you mean.

    sometimes, if one is delusional or dysfunctional, one ought to listen to what others say, otherwise their mirror is broken

    One of my favorite books of all time has those thoughts and sentiments, “I think I can. . .” all the way up the steep hill and as it coasts downhill, the smiles on my face come.
