Self doubt and perfect timing

I wanted to share this with you guys.

Just like most of you I regularly face doubts about my abilities and my worth. Sometimes it is just a passing thing but sometimes the doubt cuts deeper. Earlier this week I was having one of those nights and I was feeling quite low. Then all of a sudden my younger son wakes up and calls me.

I went into his room and he immediately jumped into my arms and curled up into a comfortable position and fell asleep again. It blew my mind. Even if all I could do in this life was to provide my sons with a feeling of security my worth would be immeasurable. I now have a new perspective of my worth.

The timing that the kid has is nothing short of fantastic.

Re: Self doubt and perfect timing

Thank you so much for sharing that.

Ages ago, I was taking secretrial classes, it was so frustrating i didnt understand the stuff about accounting and we got out early one afternoon, my then 2- 1/2 yr old son just dropped his legos in surprise and wonder and gave me this huge smile.
