Not Broken

Confidence is a wily thing.

Even if you have it

It can easily be shaken.

Confidence Shaken

But a shaken spirit is not a broken spirit.

The ground is still there.

Find your place

Be still for a moment

Let the spinning cease.

Stand tall.

Wily as it can be

Confidence will find it’s way back.

    Great advice. It happens to us all, but the healing is often hastened by the kind words of others.

    Indeed Colleen, indeed. When I hauled fuel we carried 58,000 liters (about 15,000 US Gallons)in each load with two trailers at a time – around 100,000 pounds of flammable, explosive, environmentally dangerous, mutagenic gasoline. Confidence was a requirement second only to having a driver’s licence. We would literally get drivers who would loose their confidence and we would have to send out another driver to finish the run. Doing a quick straw poll,we figured that only about 10% of tractor-trailer drivers had the confidence to haul fuel.

    We had a hard time getting balance between confidence and over-confidence. We found that confidence had to be coupled with situational awareness and self-awareness or it would morph into either over-confidence or loss of confidence.For those who had confidence,it took some positive reinforcement for them to get it back after an accident or serious incident.

    You are exact right Colleen – I had seen many whose confidence was shaken but they could get it back. It was those who were pretending to have confidence who cracked.

  12. To live without. Shackle of caring what others think! That is true freedom. Awesome lyric you wrote here.
