When I was younger I put my trust in others, whether it was in people, my parents, my friends, the men I loved or the school system that I was taught in and later in the organizations I worked for. It took me years of living and learning to understand that who I had to trust the most was me. My instincts, my determination, my choices.
Still I admit to having days when I have no trust whatsover in me and when I wonder just what the #*/?** am I doing. Yesterday was one of those days.
I was still feeling pretty disjointed and disgruntled with me when I awoke at 5:30AM this morning. In an aimless moment, a big cup of coffee in hand and a big desire to accomplish something I sat at my computer and decided to go through the sundry newsletters that fill my email inboxes.
There was this one from The Domino Project with the heading : Trust Yourself(#Trust 30) Writing Challenge.
I've signed up. I downloaded this new edition of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self Reliance from Amazon. I will be blogging, tweeting, and posting on Facebook my reflections over the next month. Yes I am a day late in starting, May 31 being the official kick off. But I trust there is perfection in that.
Today's prompt: How would I describe today in one sentence?
Today is a gorgeous, glittering, larger than life bright yellow and red neon sign from the Universe that it is time for me to reaffirm my trust in me.
