Learning to Trust Myself

Sometimes I surprise myself. I wish I were more... daring. Or adventurous, if you will. Or, no--scratch that.

I wish I knew how to have more confidence in myself.

I didn't write about today because I wanted to know that I wouldn't fail. I didn't trust myself enough to *know* I wouldn't fail.

...and if we're being honest? That makes me a little bit sad. Because I should have more faith in my ability to do something I've been practicing and practicing. and practicing.

It's all about putting one foot in front of the other, right? Take baby steps until you reach your goal.

I took another baby step today.

...and you know what? I succeeded! I took pictures of this darling brother and sister. I'm thrilled with how they turned out, and I didn't panic. Not even once.

So this is me telling you that I should have told you before I told you.

Are you with me?

What I meant to say is, I should trust myself a little more.
