Confidence

"I want to thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate to my looks and my abilities. Well done, that is what all parents should do."

These were Tina Fey's words last night after winning her Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy. It could be the best quote from an acceptance speech ever. True, I'm fairly obsessed with Tina Fey right now, and she could pretty much say anything, and I'd quote it later, but this particular one took the cake last night at the Emmy's.

Her statement about confidence also completely exemplifies how I feel about my mom and the self-worth she instilled in me. Mom always raised me to believe that anything and everything was within my grasp if I was willing to work hard enough for it.

Now, if only that worked for a husband. ;)
