Confidence!



Sherry at Sage and Thyme recently posted a quote about believing in yourself. We should believe in our own worth and have confidence in ourselves. I am trying to do this as I approach my new job. At home, we have a quote about confidence on our office wall. It actually surrounds a picture of the Indy 500 track.

"If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started."

Believe, be confident, and be open to all the possibilities!

Good Morning Nan,
I love the quote. I used to have problems about myself as well. When I met my DH, he helped with all of that. I still have problems with it from time to time, but DH is always there to remind me of my Self Esteem and worth. "THANK YOU" for sharing this with us. It's still cold here in the South but not quite as cold as it has been a being. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.
I'm glad you had a good time bowling. I'm no good at it either, but I always love bowling.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

This is so true. Without confidence, we sometimes don't even TRY. Once that confidence kicks in, we find we are actually pretty good at most every thing we try! Thanks for the reminder.....
hugs, bj

It's what I have always tried to do....seems I have been slipping a bit.....I blame everything on para-menopause right now!! Always good to have a reminder :-)

Inspiring words, Nan...thanks! Thank you also for responding to my memory card problem. The card sure "acts" as if it is full even though numerically it should have much more space than needed. Interestingly, the message I get on the computer screen, when downloading, doesn't say the card is full. It's making me crazy because it should be so simple.
