A Whole New Persona…


I had a fun comment on my blog the other day…

I so needed Bertha. My kids think I’m crazy when I tell them I have found an imaginary friend like they had as kids! She made me smile and laugh again. Thank you!

Which made me consider something that I haven’t before…this was my response….

It is my belief that we all have a…Bertha…that voice of wisdom within who can easily take on a persona all of her own…perhaps…they are the same imaginary friends of childhood…perhaps…there was just a time that the noise of our life drowned them out…perhaps…

Interestingly…now that I think about it…once I had given…Bertha…a persona…it was much easier to listen to her…to hear what she was trying to tell me…to see her on her soapbox…to imagine her fun outfits…

Now…I’m not saying that everyone should dress their inner voice in spandex and high-heels…although from personal experience it is fun…rather…I’m only suggesting…that the wisdom is there…and…you might want to give creating a persona a try…

    • Thank you, Christy…it always amazes me how ‘real’ Bertha seems…I enjoy knowing that my work connects with people as well…have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I love this thought! Yes, I have an inner ‘me,’ lol!! Since reading ‘Bertha Size Your Life,’ I’ve reconnected with her. Thanks Jane for bringing the Bertha in me alive again!
