life & leibster kudos

Sometimes you just have to believe in yourself. I have trouble doing this. I think most people do.
Sometimes I do believe in myself,  don’t live up to my high expectations, and  am disappointed
We constantly doubt ourselves, our abilities, our capabilities.
Reality is the possibilities are endless.  cheeeeezy?
Doubt is just another form of restriction, and we know that’s no good.
I may not have lived up to my expectations in certain situations, but once in a while, I doubt myself and end up exceeding my expectations, feeling proud, and have a temporary sense of confidence.
And I’ll carry that with me for as long as it lasts.

hello goldfish

August is just flying by. My life = sleep, yoga, biopsych, occasional babysitting two crazy toddlers who also happen to be insanely cute, eating :), and watching greys anatomy reruns. Luckily I’ve been getting some social interaction in on weekends with friends, but for a lot of the time I am alone. I spend a lot of time alone, and to be honest I really don’t mind it, in fact I like it. While I do love being around people, I also enjoy my solitude. Preferable I would spend more time with my prince charming significant other, but I have yet to find one of those. Hence, me living my life, in all its glory, independently.
rant over.
