Assurance

goldstars31Assurance:
1.) Confidence or certainty in one’s own abilities

Why are we ashamed or nervous to feel (and especially express) esteem for something we have accomplished? Is it because we don’t support our peers enough these days? Why is it that it takes “courage” and/or “confidence” in order to say “hey. I’m doing this thing, it makes me happy, and you know what I’m kinda good at it too.” If we all did it, I think we would support each other more, because we wouldn’t feel like we were in competition with one another. I think as a community we need to let someone know that they are good at something, encourage them when they tell us about their accomplishments, and feel joy in the fruit of our own labor and talents! Appreciation of self and others is not automatically feeding pridefulness and/or arrogance. I’ll tell you what it going to fuel; productivity, self assurance, and more creativity.
I think we can all agree there is nothing wrong with those things!

The One

6187141-crown-of-thorns-hung-around-the-easter-cross
Who was the one born pure
The one who cured
Who was the one to endure

Who was the one that cared
The one that shared
Who was the one to be fair

Who was the one to die
The one who cried
Who was The One to be tried

Sun ‘n Sea

The sun fades, holding on to the sea.
Sweet whispers. The wind dances.
The last speck of sun, glistening away.
A casting glow. Shimmering sand.
Waves gently drifting, kissing the shore.
Shards of light and gold.
A last embrace and time stands still.
