About 6 weeks ago, I had a bit of a self-confidence shake. It really bothered me for a few days until I had a revelation (in the shower no less - about the only place I can actually think!). I was inspired to write a Gatha like my friend Nona is so good at doing. The moment I felt my mind wandering to the experience and my insecure feelings, I would repeat the Gatha to myself. I was amazed at how it helped me let go. At the time I shared it with Nona but didn't feel the need/want to share it on my blog.

Similar feelings surfaced today. Although the feelings are unrelated to my previous experience, I pulled the Gatha back out and thought I'd share.

I understand my fear of rejection
But I vow in this moment
Not to allow my fear
To dictate who I am.

Sounds like you had a rough day...Sorry and echo penny.

Love the gatha and maybe it'll help to know others feel this way sometimes too.

Those are wise words. I'm sorry you're having a tough time.

It sounds like a rough day, Kristen. ((hugs)) to you. I am glad the gathas are comforting. I find them to be invaluable.

Hang in there! Do something today that makes you feel really good and capable and maybe it will balance out the other feelings!
