Been thinking and that is scary

I am a beginner--seeing a pattern doesn't mean I know how to put it all together.  Take baby steps; don't focus on the people whose skills are far beyond my own. When I'm new to something-or I haven't tried it in awhile-it can feel impossibly hard to get it right.  Every misstep feels like a reason to quit.  I envy everyone else who seems to know what they're doing.  What keeps me going?  The belief that one day I'll also be like that: Elegant, Capable, Confident and Experienced.  And I can be.  All I need is enthusiasm.  A little bravery.  And--always--a sense of humor.
This is my college education showing through I have thought a lot about this and once in awhile as I go through this journey I will share my thought. (hope no one minds)
Love to all--went for walk this morning and it was 5 degrees out.  Had a sweater, hoodie and a jacket on!!


  1. dawn-i just love you : ) I'll show you more when I get there!

  2. You are doing more than you think you are. Even if it's not reflected fastly in the weight you have other issues that cause it to be slower. YOur heart is there tho. Just remember your putting healthier food in your mouth. In the end it will be healthier vitamins and nutrients feeding vital organs in your body. This will enrich your life. Love you
