    You can generally tell how my day was based on

    my after dinner behavior. After wolfing down my food I fed the dogs a few scraps and then washed the dishes. I then proceeded to grab a yummy cookie... And then decided maybe some milk was in order... Somewhere in the middle of grabbing a glass and some ice, I poured a...

    Stand Up For Yourself!

    Believing in yourself you need to stand up for yourself. Stick to the point, make yourself clear and compare your options objectively before answering or committing to take the next logical step. Understand or identify the cause. You get what you want by trusting your own...

    I grew up in the 80s,

    I never questioned for a moment that I could be anything I want to be. Ballerina, cartoonist, lawyer, theme park designer, physical therapist, stay at home mom, world class musician. It was drilled into our brains over and over again that anything was possible, that each of us...

    If I don't believe in anything i believe in

    myself. I don't need anyone else to believe in me, most people want to see me fail anyway, so believing in myself, makes it that much better to prove them all wrong, to see them realize their jokes, or negativity is falling on ears what won't hear or listen. I have goals in mind...

    I dont believe that you need some God to show

    you your way. Or that you need the government or other people. In the end all you need is to believe in yourself, and everything else will come with.

    I believe in myself, sometimes.

    I happen to believe in myself at this moment. I am having trouble holding onto this moment. I keep thinking about a person that doesn't like me. I need to think about a person who does like me. Why do I give so much power to a very few people who wish me harm?
