Say to yourself that you can


Sometimes it’s good to say to yourself,
“I can do this. Sure. I go for it.
It is now time to take it a step further. “

Not finding yourself as important as to create yourself


It’s not so much about finding yourself,
But to make yourself.

Be for others or yourself

Michel de Montaigne wrote of his condition that, “I am at grips with the worst of all maladies, the most sudden, the most painful, the most mortal and the most irremediable. I have already experienced five or six very long and painful bouts of it.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Say yes

Say yes

It seems strange to say yes for no reason.
Especially in a world that teaches us to draw boundaries, to say no.
Still, to say yes is the most powerful thing there is.

Not to each question from outside.
That would make us out of control.
But a wholehearted YES to everything you feel.

Yes to love.
Yes to fear.
Yes to pain.

A difficult exercise.
But worthwhile to try.

Because in your YES lies a profound trust.
A warm belief in your own voice.
A soft stone deep inside, a little piece that only belongs to you.
Something that brings you peace.

Say yes to life that embraces you.
Say yes.

Confidence…

Rose, the owner of Seeking You is a Christian wife to a loving, supportive husband,
20151227_214919 (3)having two amazing children, who keep them quite busy. Her site ” Seeking You” is a community where women of all races and ethnicities and all ages can come together to share thoughts, passions, concerns, and experiences.

The Lord is the stronghold of her life and therefore she can say

– Of Whom shall I be afraid?

Before she makes a decision she dares to analyse the possibilities to no end!

People like us first consider the pro’s and con’s; we dissect the risks. Then we focus on the risks. In order for us to act, we must be sure the risks are minimal.

You may wonder where the confidence is in the “self”. She knows:

There isn’t anything wrong with making informed decisions. The trouble lies in the fact that many times we become too fearful to act. We allow the process of analysing risks to paralyse us.

For sure when we start to believe in ourself and give ourselves to the Most High Guide we shall feel that we may gain much more confidence.

How wonderful it is to be comfortable in your own skin.

Uninhibited.

Knowing your purpose and asking permission from no one.

Not the least bit concerned of what “people” have to say.

Simply being yourself!

How beautiful.

Believe today and now!

People do have to live with themselves, which is only possible when they accept themselves. First of all they have to believe in themselves. Only when they come to see themselves as a acceptable being in the universe they can go to look further and come to see the Hand behind their own being. Only then faith can come into their life.

You have to believe you can do it and that you can pull out of yourself that of what you are dreaming of.

You have to believe in your self, whether you call it self-esteem, self-confidence, or self-assurance, it is a deep-seated belief that you have what it takes – the abilities, inner resources, talents, and skills to create your desired results.
