As I stepped out the door, I realized I had my shirt on backwards, but I kept going rather than turning back to go change. After all, it was only 7:00 am, and I was headed for the walking trail. Who would be there, and even if people saw, who would care?
“I can rock this backward shirt look,” I said. No problem here.
However, minutes later I noticed the park was more crowded than I thought. Lots of women were wearing fashionable, color-coordinated Lycra exercise clothes. They had cute, colorful tennis shoes too. I looked down at my non-fashion statement: gray Nikes, black running shorts, and a nondescript grayish brownish T-shirt, which happened to be on backwards. All of a sudden, I felt like something was vaguely wrong with me.
Do you ever have a sinking feeling that you’re not quite right?
- Not quite thin or pretty enough?
- Not emotionally healthy enough?
- Not smart or savvy enough?
- Not a good enough daughter, wife, mother, or friend?
Sometimes we wear a “Not Enough” label just like I wore that backwards T-shirt. We even let “Not Enough” sink into our hearts…
