So here's something I've been exploring: the "FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT" way of life.
It's kind of cool, actually, as long as you don't lose your nerve. When you can project the confidence that you know exactly what you're doing, that everything is going your way because it simply wouldn't dare do otherwise, that things are working out exactly as they should, and it's all because of your sheer awesomeness... well, even if it wasn't strictly true to begin with, sometimes it ends up actually turning out that way. And somehow, you just make it look easy.
And then you find out? That you had that wild, free-flying awesomeness inside you the whole time.
Trust me on this one.
