2010 & Me

This year is quickly drawing to a close and as I reflect back on my 2010 I see I have been very blessed to meet some new people, spend time with old friends and continue in creating both poetry and art.

I'm learning to have some confidence. I know it seems like I have plenty but that's just an act. I second guess my work as I so often judge it against the works of others. And I know that is not a good idea. I have told my children, "You can only judge yourself against yourself. Strive to do the best you can at whatever you are doing. Because the works of others is their experience in life, you have your own. Everyone is not good at everything and we all have less than perfect results from time to time. Keep doing, so that you may find that thing which is yours."

And still I wonder when I will heed my own words?

Your self-confidence level is superb, Lady! I've found that sometimes we are very poor judges of our own abilities. And maybe of our own confidence levels ...

I like to judge my creations against others' so that I can perceive how much more and what I have to learn. Occasionally someone pokes me and provokes me to share and teach others. Sort of like you do ... only you do it so much better!
