E -- Ego's

Egotistical is the PERFECT word for today. While I won't go into the details, let's just say tomorrow is going to be interesting when I come into contact with the ego's that are so big, it's going to be impossible to fit them all into one room.

Ego's. What human doesn't have one? I do admit, I have a self esteem problem. My confidence level is low...mainly because of myself and how I imply things. There is one thing, however, that I'm very egotistical about... and that is sports. I'm not gonna lie. I brag. I talk crap. I'm very arrogant. But I can't help it. We all have something we are good at and are confident in. With me, it's my athletic ability. I don't think I've found a sport I'm not good at. And I enjoy it. Writing is a close second, but I do have my confidence problems with that. The query escapade is largely to blame for that!

So, what do you have to be egotistical about? And don't say "nothing". We all have something we're confident in!

(I know, I know, confidence and ego's are different... but oh well.)

I hope tomorrow is a good day for you. I'll be home in the evening if you want to call or chat.

Hmm, I guess I'm egotistical about my opinions. I hate being disagreed with. But over the years I've learned to appreciate other peoples opinions with open arms, even though I may not agree, I'm able to force myself to look at things from other perspective. But that doesn't mean I don't still feel that sting when someone says I'm wrong :)

Yikes - sounds like the day will be a little intimidating! Good luck with it.

I've gone from a kid with pretty low self-esteem to an adult with an improving confidence. Knowing I can touch/help kids in the classroom has really helped me in this area.

I think true sports lovers are always a little egotistical about them. You're one of the ones who can play it, so you get to show your ego on the field. I'm one of the ones who can't ... so I show mine in the stands. (But let me just tell you, I can talk down an opposing team's fan like you wouldn't believe!)

As far as the query is concerned, I'm pretty sure that is designed to tear us all down!

What do I have to be egotistical about? Ha! You kidding? A better question would be: What do I NOT have to be egotistical about?

It would take much less time to answer the latter question than the former. Sports, sculpture, opera, computer programming, archaeology, higher mathematics - you name it, I can do it!

LOL, I love the responses on here. Thanks Loriann, I might give you a call later. I'm so tired, I might just pass out. It's gonna be years before I can catch up on sleep! X-(

I think my opinions and my intuition...I have stopped people from going places before. Later the news said, bad accidents in the area.
I just get strong feelings, nothing more...
