My name is Stephanie Staples.
They call me a Motivational Speaker.
My ‘job’ is to inspire, motivation and educate people.
I travel all over North America.
I love my job.
I get paid to speak.
My husband says he would pay me to be quiet.
Some people think
I have a perfect life
That I am always happy
That I am always positive
That everything is easy
That I have a lot of self-confidence
Today I am telling you my truth
I get angry
I get sad
I am far from perfect
Every morning I psych myself up
To be some semblance of confident
I get scared
Sometimes I feel ugly and lazy
And overwhelmed and fat and stupid
Sometimes I don’t feel like begin nice
Sometimes my self-talk sucks
But that’s not how I want to be
I want to be better today
Than I was yesterday
I change my self talk
I tell myself that I am
I get out of my own way
And in my own quirky way
I try to make the world a wee bit better
I just wanted you to know my truth.
Thanks for reading.
