Thursday Thoughts: Universal Fears

When I was in college, a good friend of mine made a statement that’s stuck with me all these years–and trust me, there’s a LOT of years between now and then. It was one of those nights in dorm where the crew had gathered in someone’s room for rounds of lime daiquiris and conversation. We discussed many deep and philosophical topics, like…well…never mind. Anyway, this particular night we were talking about men and beautiful women. Don’t get me wrong, none of us were slouches and we were all dating hot guys but…lime daiquiris. Anyway, my friend sits up straight, sticks her index finger into the air and says, “Even the most beautiful woman in the world has snot in her nose.”

As if the most accomplished amongst you didn’t have their own piercing doubts, fears, and worries. Didn’t have spells when they believed they were inadequate, lost, and dependent. Hadn’t at times felt downhearted, discouraged, and all alone in the world.

Yet still, Silver… you know their names.

You are no less,

Silver, bar none.

My reminiscence does bear relevance to the Universe’s message. We all have doubts, fears, and worries. About ourselves, our loved ones, our friends. We get discouraged, depressed, and sometimes, the angst gets so thick you’d think an entire Junior class of teenage girls lived in our heads. When it hits, it’s hard to remember that even those we admire and aspire to be have felt the same at some point in their life. They made it. So can we. Because remeber? Even the most beautiful woman in the world has snot in her nose… Just sayin’. 😉

    You can’t let the doubt monster win. It only has the power we give it anyway. :hugs:
