    I need to take things up a notch

    and believe in myself. And to take that a step further I want to get to know who I am and what I truly value as a person. I'm not a teen or young 20s any more. I've grown a bit and maybe need to reevaluate my values and the things I allow in my life. Discard old mindsets and...

    Doubt

    "Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we might often win, by fearing to attempt." As the great William Shakespeare said our doubts are our traitors. Doubts can get in your way and everybody has some. But a doubt doesn't mean it's true. It might just might mean you...

    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 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...

    Self Confidence Is A Must, Not A Nice To Have

    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 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?

    I have never had a noticeable belief in God or some sort of a supernatural power. I used to go to temples only when my parents did. This was the case when I was a child. As I grew up, I never really went to a temple by myself and just because I felt I should. This doesn’t...

    Why Shouldn't Everyone ?
