Confidence

You say it isn't easy and it isn't always clear.
Yet confidence is the strong foundation, best to face your fear.

When you walk with your head held high and your shoulders rolled down and back,
You can better see the path before you and you relax upon the track.

Say what you believe in with compassion and clarity in your voice.
Yet, confidence always listens to another's argument or choice.

When we are confident about ourselves, we feel the freedom it allows.
Through freedom we can live without the have-tos, shoulds and hows.

So for today, please practice your unique and sacred quest.
Walk tall, yet humble and honest, with the strength of confidence.

It's amazing what a difference I feel about myself now compared to five years ago. I've always been confident, but not I have a quest too! I feel like I know in my bones what I am to do. It's awesome! Thanks for sharing the poem. Did you write it?

Thank you Heather, yes I did.

Oh yeah, quest is the right word! It is in our bones and very essence of our cells. Blaze on!
