A lil pep talk just for you

Is it possible to get tweeked on Green Tea? I ask that with a smile because I, unknowingly, ingested the equivalent of 4 tea bags of green tea. At the moment, I am more spastic than a squirrel on speed.

Anyways, today I'm wondering why we, as dreamers, are so hard on ourselves? While sitting in a gorgeous sitting room at a fancy schmancy hotel I felt horribly out of place. Most of the ladies in this room are dressed in flouncy floral skirts with velvet shoes. Me? I am garbed in my usual plaid chucks with my brand spanking new leather headband.

I can't help but overhear random strangers bag on themselves. Even my sister babbles on and on about how horrid she is at everything. After a while, I began to wonder why we (myself included) only see the faults in ourselves. Why don't we see how awesome we are?

Maybe you haven't heard a compliment in a while or maybe you are depleted from the demands of life. Well, never fear, Russo is here. And lemme tell you that you are freaking incredible.

The fact that you are chasing your dream is rather remarkable. Never forget that your efforts are making a difference. You are fighting for your dream-no matter what is thrown in your path-keep fighting. And never forget-you're freaking incredible.

I think we're hard on ourselves because it's easier than feeling good about ourselves. It's human nature. That's why this is such a great reminder. Thanks Russo! You, too, are freaking incredible!

A squirrel on speed is a terrifying concept indeed....

Hi Russo... Wow, you have hit the perverbial nail on the head. Why do we believe the bad stuff and not the good. I agree with the line from _Pretty Women_, "It's easier to believe the bad stuff..." Since I am no stranger to depression, this is one battle that I fight contantly.

But thanks to your lovely comments on my blog posts, I see more sunshine than darkness. Thanks, my friend.
