The Big Bang Theory is one of the only shows I watch on television. I love this show.
I identify with Penny. In so many ways, I am Penny!
She is the non-intellectual aspiring actress that loves wine, clothes, and shoes. She is fun, fabulous, and has become more through her affiliation with her scientist friends. She has more of a worldly education. Life.
She brings balance.
As described in my book, I married Leonard. Well, sort of. My husband (commonly referred to the Dr. House of equine medicine – except he is not an egomaniacal, narcissist, drug addict) has so many initials behind his name he could be alphabet soup.
I never thought that I deserved a guy like him. Sexy. Really sexy! Smart. Really smart! What could I possibly offer him that he did not already have?
We attract what we think we deserve.
When we think we have nothing to offer, we don’t! That is a sentence worth repeating.
When we do not value ourselves, we assign ourselves a negative net worth and that is exactly the price that people are willing to pay and we settle for it – in our associations, our jobs, our homes, our shoes, our purses, our hairdryers (sorry, I am a girlie girl!), but most of all our dreams.
I had quit dreaming of the happily ever after.
I made excuses. Excuses are curtains that we hide behind because we are afraid of showing the world the real us. Excuses mask our fear. Fear of failure. Fear of success.
One day, I looked around and realized that I had become the one thing that scares me most – less than I knew deep in my soul that I was capable of.
Suddenly, my fear of failure and my fear of what people would think of me became less than the passion that was burning inside of me. I raised the curtain and took center stage of my own life and I took a bow. It was about time I showed up.
When I changed my opinion of me, my life changed.
I was the girl that deserved the guy. The one that would love, cherish, support, and encourage me. The one that would look at me like the fine wine that I am! Mostly, the one that would not seek to hold me back out of fear that I might actually succeed but the one that would willingly sign on to be my editor, my publicist, my cheerleader, and my business partner! Furthermore, he deserved exactly me. Funny, brilliant, spicy, sexy, sometimes wacky, entertaining, shoe, purse, and wine loving me!
Understand it isn’t just the guy. The job. The car. The hairdryer. The shoes. It is believing that you are worth them because you are!
