That is my mantra of late. Not just for my current semester of course work, but in general. Study.
It is taking longer than I wanted to put out the next book. There is a lesson in that. Patience. Something I have too little of for my own good. However, all this study has been a boon.
There is a calming aspect to realizing that you were on to something when you made a change and choose what has been in your heart, and accepted yourself. As much as I would have liked to say, I wasn’t a writer. I am. It has been a hard part of myself to accept.
I didn’t think I was smart enough. I didn’t think I had anything to say, or tell that anyone would be interested in reading. ‘I didn’t think’, really means I didn’t believe in myself.
Believing in yourself means accepting who you are and liking you, as you are. The sooner you do that, the better it all becomes. Can I get an amen on that?
