Welcome to Wednesday Word, a weekly linkup for everyone, not just health and fitness bloggers. Each Wednesday you will have a single word prompt to write about.  Let your imagination run free and share with your readers your interpretation of that word, or simply use it as inspiration for your post. Today’s word is confident…..  I’d love to have you link up, and if you do, please remember to follow my six simple rules.


 Confident – having a feeling or belief that you can do something well
or succeed at something : having confidence
showing that you have confidence;
certain that something will happen or that something is true
~ Merriam-Webster


I tend to wear an outer shell that exudes confidence. I usually take charge, I can be bossy, and I always appear very self-assured. I am self-reliant and extremely resourceful; however, at times I second guess myself, and before I know it I’m diving down that rabbit hole of self-doubt.


As for those times when I second guess myself and fall down the rabbit hole feeling anything but confident? I dust myself off, reevaluate what I have to offer the given situation, and revise my plan of attack in a different way until I come up with a solution. At that that point, my confidence builds and I barrel full steam ahead.

Other times? There’s no need to doubt my confidence… 

I am confident that I’ve brought much happiness to my parents over the years.

I am confident that in the eyes of my husband I am a beautiful, funny, and amazing woman.

I am confident that my sons think of me as a fun and loving mom.

I am confident that I am a loyal friend.

I am confident that I have a positive impact on my clients.

I am confident that I make at least one person laugh every day.

And I am confident every time I toe the starting line of a race. Running is my passion and as I get ready to run I know that one of two things will happen: I am either confident that my training went well and my race will go off as planned, or that I will throw caution to the wind and run the race just for the fun of it, chatting and stopping to take pictures along the way. Either way, I win.


When are you most confident?
