Monday Morning Light Vol. 4

It's a beautiful morning. I'm just waking up and planning my day.

Success is an interesting idea for me. I have never felt successful or like I have ever tried to be successful or super good at anything, instead I just let things develop naturally. I think I have a few things I am naturally good at, but I never take the time to really recognize that. I am ashamed and shy to even mention the things I think I am naturally good at. It's weird that I feel shame with it, but I do.

So here goes, I'm going to brave the wild emotions and fear and just list some of the things I think I am good at.

Being empathetic/supporting others emotionally
Home decorating/design
I am well-spoken
I am brave and I persevere

My skin is crawling from writing all that. I really want to work at getting better at things, rather than just hope talent falls in my lap. Its a habit and skill I have never really used before.

What do you think of success? What are some things you are successful in?

Love, C


  1. I think success is just knowing that you did your best, even if things don't turn out the way you planned. If you feel good about it then you succeeded in my book!
    It's good to acknowledge the things you know you are good at. I think we get caught up in the things we can't do well and forget about the things that we can do well and celebrate them.

  2. I never really thought of success that way, but now that I think of it, that is how I want to think of it and how it should be thought of.

    Thanks for your thoughts, it really has helped my outlook dear!



I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
