Read this to yourself and never forget it..Wise words from Marianne Williamson
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not
to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles", Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])

is amazing and I'm so grateful that someone gave it to me years ago..
So here are my french knots now. By God, I think she's got it!! perseverance and believing you are deeply loved unconditionally makes the perfection monsters go away. Create a mantra, like "I believe in all good things" say it over and over . Affirmations saved my life. I used to tell myself everyday "I am strong and capable of handling whatever comes up today!!" that came in right handy.
Thanks for all your comments yesterday, it's the brokenness and hardship that keep us together. I'm grateful for my struggles they have humbled me and keep me reaching out to do service for others. You guys know I am here for you and that is better than any gift I could ever receive. Now check out these french knots now don't be jealous!!
