Your own idol

YA Highway's giving away a copy of Janice Hardy's BLUE FIRE.

Angela at The Bookshelf Muse is giving away critiques and a MENTORSHIP!!!

Stop by and enter!

Okey dokes, it's Monday. You know what that means. Monday on My Mind.

This week what's on my mind? Me. You. Self.

Has anybody ever told you you're fab? That's not a rhetorical question. Has anyone ever told you they admire you? Maybe you play a mean bass guitar, or you can sing higha than Mariah. Maybe you've got the body of a goddess, or you get nothing but net from the half court line. Maybe you've always gotten straight A's or your college thesis has all 10 letter words other than "the," "of" and "in."

For whatever reason, someone thinks the sun shines out of your patooty.

And you? You probably laugh it off. You probably don't think that thing you do is very awesome. You'd prefer to be like Kurt Vonnegut. Or Brangelina. Or Katniss. But let me let you in on a little secret. Maybe, just maybe those guys want to be like you. Maybe sometimes they wish they were good at that thing that comes so easily to you.

Vicious cycle.

Unless you break it.

Take a minute, think about it. What things about you absolutely rock? Be honest with yourself. We're all good at something.

At least for today, think about that thing you do, and appreciate it. At least for today, think, "I wanna be like ME."

Cause You rock!

Claire Dawn says so.

You Rock, CD!lol

I think I am good at multi-tasking and staying motivated. I don't think your dreams fall into your lap. You have to work at them.
