Let’s Talk about CONFIDENCE!
April 8, 2018
Alright Friends…Time for A Heart to Heart…I have my chocolate and coffee ready… Go grab yours and come back when you’re ready to let this soak in.
We are going to chat about CONFIDENCE.
Did I sense some of you squirm?
*Enter big sigh here by ME*
So… since this is a heart-to-heart…full disclosure…I STRUGGLE IN THIS DEPARTMENT FRIENDS. Raise your hands if you’re with me. Even as I type this, I find myself having to take deep breaths. Just this morning I had a slight…I don’t know what you’d call it exactly…a moment? Without getting too personal, I’m hormonal at the moment and besides that have just been going through waves of emotion stuff. Occasionally, or more than occasionally, I wonder if I’m doing enough as a teacher, as a mom, as a wife, as a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend…and the list goes on… Mom (women) guilt is such a thing! Specifically in the teacher department…I always want to know more. I want to know that I’m giving clients and students my best…but there is this underlying feeling of “I should KNOW more, I should DO more” Do you know what I’m talking about? In some ways it’s good to want to do your best, but there are other times when you just have to let that **** go friends! You and me both. I was having a moment like this this morning when I got a message from someone that I recently had a yoga session with. She gave me a compliment that brought me to tears. (Remember, I am emotional right now.) But it really struck me in the moment as this…why don’t we let ourselves see US the way others do? Why are we so hard on ourselves? Maybe you don’t do this to yourself and I hope that you don’t…and also I’d like to know your secret. I’m not saying worry about what other people think! No, not at all. Be your own person through and through of course! We all have our own version of sparkle…and let your stuff shine peeps!!! I’m saying we should also allow ourselves to acknowledge the fact that we are uniquely pretty cool! We all have different talents and gifts that contribute to this world and make it interesting. Let’s be proud of them! And of course we can always know more, which keeps us searching for more wisdom, experiences and FUN along the way. Alright so here it is in a nutshell…to you and to me…BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE! I AM SURE YOU ARE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN! YOU ARE UNIQUELY AND WONDERFULLY MADE…OWN IT! Alright that’s what I wanted to get across today. Thanks for this heart-to-heart…they always feel so good don’t they?
Namaste Beautiful People!
