Run The World, Girls

Source: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1204381/2/index.htmAugust 13, 2012 Run The World, Girls History has been lit large across the London fortnight—the likely last stands of Phelps and the Dream Team, the kinetic brilliance of Bolt—but the electricity of these Games has come from another growing, if not new, source: towering womenALEXANDER WOLFFPIERRE DE Coubertin may have been the father of the modern Olympic movement, but he was no Title IX dad. The French nobleman once declared from under that fastidious little mustache of his that an Olympics with women would be, among other things, “uninteresting” and “unaesthetic.” Oh, how the first 11 days of the London Olympics put the lie to both claims.Consider the galvanizing beauty of the women’s judo final, in which Kayla Harrison, sexually abused for nearly six years beginning at age 11 by a now-imprisoned male coach, felt safe enough to leap joyfully into the arms of a new sensei, who had helped her discover the self-confidence to win the first U.S. gold medal in the sport.And consider the race that led to Britain’s first gold of the Games, won by a coxless pair that included Heather Stanning, to whom the Royal Artillery granted a leave in 2010 so she could train. Now that she and Helen Glover have accomplished that mission, Captain Stanning is due back with her regiment, which will soon deploy to Afghanistan’s Helmand province.And consider the U.K. weightlifting record that Britain’s Zoe Pablo Smith set a week ago Monday, after which she ducked into a Victoria’s Secret on the edge of the Olympic Park to do some celebratory shopping.

Writing and self-confidence | How to BELIEVE in yourself as a writer

It is a rare writer who starts out convinced of her ability to change the world with her words.  It takes time and endurance to finally arrive at that conclusion, and most never will.Most of us, even those who make a living from their craft, lack confidence at times. Writing is, after all, a daunting and lonely task.  We put down our thoughts on a page, in hopes that someone will find them worthy of their time and attention.A lack of confidence can be crippling.   It leads too may writers to give up before they’ve even begun, much like I did for the first fifty years of my life.Consider the over-the-top confidence of those who now compete in the Olympics.  They were once children with Olympic dreams and not much else.  Sure their parents believed in them, and then they had constant coaching to help out, but I’m sure their dreams felt plenty far away many times before they arrived in London this summer.For most of us, confidence is the larger battle, because without it we will not continue to pursue our craft.  In the end, it comes down to the belief that we were born to write and share ourselves with the world in this way.Can you stop writing today?  I know I cannot.  So I will continue down this lonely but self-illuminating path, building my confidence as I go.“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.”      – Gustave FlaubertShare this:Email Digg Reddit Facebook StumbleUpon Like this:LikeBe the first to like this.About midlifecrisisqueen Laura Lee Carter is the author of this blog and she holds copyright on all materials published. www.lauraleecarter.com View all posts by midlifecrisisqueen Continue reading
