“Sometimes I feel lonely. Sometimes I feel like a fraud. Sometimes I feel like a failure. Sometimes I feel unaccomplished. But in reality, I am none of those things.”The Book Guide® Editor
The author sums up my feelings brilliantly near the very end of the book. I, too, smile a lot, and I have those little crinkle lines by my eyes and around my mouth. And yes, most of the time, I’m a happy person, and I show it. But like her, “Sometimes I feel lonely. Sometimes I feel like a fraud. Sometimes I feel like a failure. Sometimes I feel unaccomplished. But in reality, I am none of those things.” She is average. And average is awesome – something I need to remember.
