A little encouragement

Things are definitely changing for me. Grace has started full-time school...leaving my day wide open...

Yikes...now what? Well...I'm taking a blogging course and have signed up for the Sketchbook project. I'm starting to blog for other people and Grace & Ivy sales are on the up and up. It's a whirlwind of activity but I'm rolling with it and trying not to freak myself out. I'm so good at talking myself out of stuff. My sixth grade teacher said I was afraid of success. That's a handy trait...

Why do we hold ourselves back? Why do we fear our own power, our own greatness? Maybe because when you get to the top you have to fight to stay there. That's what makes me shake in my boots. I'm not much of a fighter. At least I don't think I am...

Today I'm gonna read this over and over:

And hope to believe in what I can do...

How do you deal with your own fears?

Be brave, friends.
