Keep the Faith
My 6-year-old has taken to leaving sticky notes all over the house to let me know he loves me. I can totally get behind this trend. Note the small stick figure with a book in his lap. My son has definitely inherited my artistic ability. He's adorable and he's absolutely certain that my books are amazing. He's never read a single one, of course. I'm not into giving my children nightmares. But nonetheless, he knows he will love them when he can read them and he has absolute faith in me and my abilities.
I want to feel the same way, and some days I do...but doubt always finds me. It's so easy to get caught up in the impossibility of it all and forget what really matters. Are we doing everything we can to make every word, every chapter, every book as good as it can be? If so, then we should have faith. We've done all we can do and as long as we keep trying and don't give up... things will work out.
So this week, I'm striving to have a little more faith in myself. What are you striving for?
