What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

Has anyone ever heard of that song by Demi Lovato? I think it’s a decent song, but it got me thinking today. Is there ever such a thing as being overly confident?

I was always the kind of girl who doubted myself. I was always super critical about anything I did because I had always been so misjudged in the past by my classmates, my teachers, and even people who I thought were my friends.

Now, I’ve gained a newfound confident; especially when it comes to my singing and my music, but I’ve been saying things I’ve never said before:

“Oh, we could do that better than them!”

I remember one time I was watching Steve Harvey’s talk show, and a guy came on the speak about self-esteem. I forget his name, but he said, “Arrogance is thinking you’re better than everyone else. Confidence is knowing no one is better than you.”

Think about that quote. There is a difference. A big one at that.

The Daily Grind

Do you ever wake up, and just feel that you wish you could do anything other than what you were supposed to do that day? I think we all do.

I don’t have problems with my life. I like what I do, but am I content? Yes, to an extent I am, but I know I am capable of so much more. I have talent bursting at the seams when it comes to writing, ideas, music, meditation, media, and what have you. I used to be so young and carefree, but now I’m living like I’m dying. I don’t mean suicide, but I mean living like I only have a short amount of time to live and get things done.

For once a week at least, I want to do something I wouldn’t typically do when it comes to the daily grind.

The daily work grind boggles us down because we sometimes find ourselves in a rut. We do the same thing at our job everyday. Maybe I’m a glutton for freedom, but I don’t want to do the same thing everyday. I want to taste life like it’s a different fruit every day. I don’t want apples every single day. Why can’t I have the canteloupe?
