quote of the week

Been thinking a lot about the power of self-confidence these days. Sometimes we're our own worst critics and I've been taking a close look at some of my self-criticizing tendencies over the past few months. All of the ways that I say that I'm not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, spiritual enough, etc, etc, etc.

Ironically of course, we all know, is that it's easier for us to come up with lists of the things that are wrong instead of what is right; the things I can't do instead of the things I can.

So here are 10 random the things that I can do (in no particular order):

  • Make a mean dry gin martini (jigger and all)
  • Speak French 
  • Program basic HTML code
  • Basic sewing, knitting and crochet, which means I can make a baby quilt on demand in any of these formats!
  • Take pictures in manual mode
  • Travel to a foreign all by myself
  • Laugh at myself
  • Forgive even when I think it's impossible
  • Write an essay and even a graduate thesis
  • Drive stick shift

Here are 10 things that I believe that I am,  that I can do,  or will do one day:

  • Write a book
  • Kindhearted
  • Be a pretty dang fun mom
  • Do a real cartwheel(one day I will do this)
  • Truly know that I am beautiful
  • Be a High Priestess in my lineage
  • Sky-dive
  • Learn to cook real, authentic Indian food
  • Cook great veggie dishes
  • Raise a child who is open to the world
I'll leave it up to you to guess which ones I have and haven't done yet!

What about you? What do you need to remember to believe in your life?
