A Ha Moment

Sometimes I feel lost and unappreciated I ponder why I am here? Sometimes I look for approval from others. I want someone to give me a pat on the back saying everything will be ok. Life can be a struggle and so terribly hard. What you do? Allow yourself to mistakes and learn from them. Let those mistakes become your victories. We all ponder why we're here sometimes. I think that's normal. But when I'm bombarded with those thoughts and questions, I remember what I know: I'm a daughter, a mother, and a sister and etc. It humbles me to be the best daughter, mom, sister that I can be. It may take a lifetime to get an A HA moment to realize why we're here and what our purpose is, in the meantime be optimistic and do what you know! And finally pat your own self on the back and be your own number 1 fan and cheerleader. When no-one is around your “inner” approval will see you through and it will get you through life's ups downs. 3-11-19 Alexis Y.

"Ditto" Alexis - I often think am I doing enough, am I doing it right, what will other think - all nonsense - as you say pat your own self on the back..........your inner approval will see you through! Words of wisdom. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.
