I Am A Swift Wind Sweeping The Country

Today I just have a simple message about self-esteem and doubt, because I've been mired in emotions tied to both lately. I mean, all of these posts deal with self-esteem and doubt in a way, but today I'm saying, specifically, if you're doubting yourself and the decisions you've made, and you're feeling like shit, this post is for you.

It's a side effect of writing and submitting stories to various publications. You're always wondering if you're good enough and if the editor on the other side of the email will "get you" and your work. And while this whole thing is going on, I'm still dealing with remnants of a near-relationship that I had to end a couple of months ago. Again, even though I did what I had to do, there are lingerings of "will I ever find someone who is right for me at the right time for both of us?" It's just a lot. Heck, I didn't even bother to post anything on the blog all week--that's how full of STUFF my brain is right now.

Times like these you just have to remind yourself you ARE enough. You ARE great. And gosh darnit, people like you!

Take a moment to look in the mirror and remind yourself that you are an awesome work-in-progress, and that everything you work hard for can be yours.

*smooches...trying to believe in myself*
good thing I don't hold any positions of power; emotions like this start world wars...
