 @lindaflower Thanks, I appreciate that! I totally agree with you. The big shots get the recognition because they're usually the bright shiny object in the room but the success of any business relies on all the supporting players. And now I know how to say cannonball in 2 languages :) Thanks for the insight!

 @pricesuej  You can "do you" any way you want - big, loud, quiet, corny... it's all you :) Your point about thinking you were quiet but others not seeing it that way - that's exactly what I was getting at toward the end, which is that sometimes we're our own worst enemies. We don't think we're capable or strong enough but our reality is skewed by the fact that we're not "perfect" or not like someone else we **think** we should be like. Totally agree - be happy with integrity! Thanks for stopping by and sharing!

 @Sonia (Sunnnee) You don't swim, the queen of fishing?? 

 

Yep, I know what you mean about comparing yourself to others. Story of my life! But you're right, you have to accept who YOU are and the awesome things you can do. Sounds like we have that in common... sit, watch, wait then move. Sounds pretty smart to me :)

 

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your comments and thanks for cracking me up.

 @SylvianeNuccio I think the photo says it all about the cannonball :) You're right about the "older you get" part, which of course makes me feel older, lol... but in a good way. You definitely get a better grasp on your priorities and start to learn to value what YOU can do instead of wishing you could be like some hero/other person you admire. Everyone has a contribution to make. Just because we're more "sideline" kind of people doesn't mean we're sitting there just staring into space! At the end of they day, you have to value yourself, just like you said. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts!

 @AdrienneSmith Thanks Adrienne, you are someone who knows how to make ripples, that's for sure :) You probably don't want to be in my brain for too long, though, because mostly I think about when I can eat another Oreo and why some %@& thing isn't working, lol.

 

Being the oldest sibling in my family you'd think I would've been bossier and more "the center of attention" but I really hated the spotlight. It's one of those weird love/hate things... you want people to notice but when they do it's mortifying. 

 

As for you, you deserve all the love you get! Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by.
