Sometimes I Feel...

Sometimes I feel as though I have less worth because I am not a "leader." I realize that not everyone can be a leader; someone has to follow at some point. I don't particularly want to be a leader...I know I'm not gifted in that area.

Perhaps being a leader is of little importance in the circles you run in. Honestly, I'm not even sure I have a circle (and knowing me, it would be more like a rhombus or a trapezoid) - I just happen to know a lot of people who are strong, natural, gifted leaders and they are always striving to be better at what they do. I admire that very much and appreciate their honesty when they see areas that they know need improvement. I guess it has been on my mind a lot because being a leader is a hot topic among many of the people I know and the blogs I read.

I'm not looking for any answers here - just saying how I feel. Good leaders can be hard to find and I am thankful for the ones I have in my life. They are people of integrity and I am glad to be under their leadership. But I know I'm not one of them.
