#awesome : #Humility vs #hurt

I just saw a poll on #TheMighty . An innocent question was asked: how awesome do you see yourself? My emotions instantly activated. First, my eyes instantly moistened as something in the question had hit a tender spot in me. But I then switched gears by stoically telling myself, “Only God can fit this definition.”

After that thought entered my mind, I realized I had just tried to deflect my insecurities by over spiritualizing the innocent question. This is obviously a flawed defense mechanism. Yet I still question if I can qualify myself as being awesome simply because words pertaining to worship towards God often include the awesomeness associated with the “Great I AM.”

Outside of the flaws in my emotional makeup due to past hurts, as a redeemed person, can I honestly see myself, a saved “wretch like me,” as the hymn states, as someone who is awesome? #TheMighty #Christians , any thoughts?

Cute bag found on

So, I go up to NYC for chemo treatments once a month and I was looking for bags to hang over the armrest of my wheelchair on Etsy (which is mostly made up of handmade items) when I came across this cute bag. I though you would all like it as much as I did. #Spoonie #Disability #fabulous #awesome
