Introverts can rise above it all

One of my favorite childhood TV shows was The Flying Nun, starring Sally Field. Quirky and fun, I loved how the introverted main character defied the odds of daily life in the abby, and smirked through her challenges with a tilt into the wind and willingness to “rise above it all”.

Similar to Maria in the Sound of Music, Field’s character captured my imagination with relentless surprise through her willingness to explore. Isn’t it funny that Sally Field in real life would say,

It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else’s eyes. ~Sally Field

Confidence is an exercise in accepting the stuff we are made of , and letting that give us a lift.

It helps us stand up, speak up and sit down.

What will it help you do today?
