The following blog was written by Dr. Eric Perry. I remember reading it when it was originally published. So thankful he shared it again because I really needed this message. Y’all, imposter syndrome is real and from my experience, debilitating. Hopefully Dr. Perry’s blog will help you as much as it has helped me. Enjoy! Shaun

I made it! So why does it feel like any other day? Hilarious!
I’m not sure what I expected. Did I expect to wake up to music playing, balloons floating, lights flashing and confetti falling? Y’all, I’m actually laughing. Honestly, what did I expect?
This is my life. I build myself up for something I consider a major event. I think about it for weeks. I anticipate what will happen and how I will react and then… NOTHING. It is just another day, another event.
So what fuels me? What keeps Shaun going?
It appears to be the anticipation of something wonderful possibly happening once a goal is met. However, often.. much too often.. that never happens. So, what do I do? I continue on. I set another goal. I think about it daily. And I allow my imagination to run wild while anticipating a grand finale hoping that one day I will wake up to music playing, balloons floating, lights flashing and confetti falling. Yep.. that’s me!
I love my life. I would not want to live it any other way. Wanna know why? It’s because I know that one day it will happen. I know it will! Listen, I am just as sure of it as I was when I was a little girl dreaming of marrying Michael Jackson. No one could tell me otherwise. Smiling
Thanks for reading and please enjoy your day. See you tomorrow!
Hope all is well with you and your families. Today is my 197th day of consecutive blogging. Not really sure how I feel about nearing the end of my goal of 200 days. Part of me wants to call it quits after 200, while the other part wants to set a new goal. Starting over at Day One just seems so discouraging. However, trying to maintain this pace is a bit stressful. I could easily schedule my posts ahead of time, but I like publishing fresh thoughts. Maybe it is best not to make a decision at all and take it one day at a time. We shall see what I happens after Wednesday, which will be Day 200.
As always, thank you so much for viewing my stories and reading my blogs. I truly appreciate it. Wishing you a blessed day and wonderful week. Please take care of yourself.
