Well hello there, Happy New Year.
I was thinking last night what unremarkable year it has been. Except for one member of our family....the teen.
Not only did he have a full list of final exams but we had the drama of the results and then the frantic search for plan B.
It turned out better than our expectations in the end. The teen now goes to college and enjoys every moment of it, he has a great group of students on his course and his confidence has soared. He even has red streaks in his hair....the blue didn't work out.
So this has set me thinking, how do we gain confidence? I have crisis of confidence all the time but on occasions the Scorpio determination breaks out and I would defy anyone that said I couldn't do it. I know, what a crazy mixed up lady I am. Now optimisation is something I have pocket fulls of....oh yes, optimistic is my middle name....always look on the bright side, it will turn out all OK. Even though my little confidence devil sits on my shoulder and tells me....'Yeah, but what if...'
|Going for the mean and moody profile...|
So no more what ifs..., but only...and ooh, I'm not sures. This year I am going to be OPTIMISTIC that I can, I will and I'm sure the CONFIDENCE will follow.
Is this a story for Sian's Storytelling Sunday? Yes of course (see the possitive there) it's the story of my start to 2012.
