|Me at one of my trunk shows in 08|
You know its amazing to me how one day you can feel sooo encouraged and positive about the path you are on and the next day feel so hopeless and/or discouraged. Well I've come to learn in life these moments will always come, especially when you are trying to pursue something. The enemy will attack so we should just expect it and the first place he usually goes for is our mind. That's why we cant trust our feelings...they are too flighty! Our job is to fight off those attacks and shoot down those negative thoughts with the word of God and what we know to be true. There have been so many days when I doubt my work and what I'm capable of doing. One minute I love something I just made and the longer I sit and look at it, I start second guessing it or myself. One thing I know for sure is that you have to believe in yourself and your product or no one else will! Even on my bad days when I have negative thoughts, deep down I never completely lose my faith. I thank God for giving me that foundation. I often think of successful people like Oprah or Donald Trump...Im sure they have had many discouraging days on the path to get to where they are today. The difference is they didn't let those moments stop them. They didn't stay down, they pressed on! And that's what I remind myself of every time I feel discouraged or when nothing seems to be happening despite my efforts....gotta keep pressing!
