"You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you
never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what
you can do except the limitations of your own mind."
-- Darwin P. Kingsley
For the past couple of weeks I've been coming across quotes and articles about self confidence. I think everyone struggles with this at some point. We might feel confident in some areas and not so much in others.
Until recently, I believed I couldn't create something without a pattern. The reason I didn't believe it was because I tried many times and failed. Usually I measured wrong or I just didn't know what all the steps were. However, if I had a pattern and instructions, I had the confidence to make the item. Since opening my Etsy shop, I've created sachets, placemats, bibs, burp cloths and an apron without a pattern. My confidence is growing!
I've always admired my daughter, Erin, for her confidence in herself when it comes to creating. Ever since she was a little girl, not knowing how to do something never stopped her from doing it! Time and time again I watched her start with an idea and end with an object she was proud of. I want to be like that!
How is your self confidence level these days?
