A Little Inspiration For Your Journey

Sometimes as we create our own lives and our own
destiny, we feel that it is only us screwing up time and
time again. Everyone else seems to have their act together.

We often just want to throw in the towel, but deep down
in our core we know that this not going to make us feel
any better. In fact it will make us feel worse.

With all the social media platforms that we now use,
seeing everybody else's "edited" life, makes our own failures and 
mistakes seem larger than life and
even harder to swallow.

But wait a minute gorgeous. Should we really be comparing the
beginning of our journey with the end result of someone else's?

These are the kinds of questions I have to ask myself often
as the self-sabotage sometimes gets a grip.

I hope you will be inspired by this wonderful
short video from the author Elizabeth Gilbert.
It's only about 8 minutes. But I hope it gives you
some soul-food for the rest of this week.

Wishing you all a wonderfully creative week full of fun, lessons
and persistance.
