Insecure Writer Me

I loved this!

______________________________________________________________________

Here's what one very powerful and wonderful lady had to say about this nagging insecurity.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.  Do the thing you think you cannot do.  Eleanor Roosevelt

And so now, I'm going to try and write a book--do that thing I think I cannot. What will you do to gain strength, courage and confidence and say farewell to INSECURITY?

  6. In it's own little way, that insecurity, whether big or small, usually keeps me on my toes so I don't rest on thinking I've "arrived". So it may not be something I like, but it's doing it's job. No resting on my laurels lol!

  7. So inspiring. And I'm just the kind of person to do that which others say I cannot. Thankfully, I also try to prove my own self wrong when I tell myself I can't do something.
