Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
February 12 entry in Simple Abundance is about trusting yourself. Remember that feeling as a kid? Not worrying what anyone else thought. Wearing the multi-coloured headscarf in a gigantic bow just because you liked it and it made you happy. You didn't worry that other people might think you looked silly, you wore it because you liked it and because it was fun and pretty and made you happy.
I miss that. I want to feel like that again. To just love what I love, be confident in my choices and be free from worrying about other people's opinions.
I want to be the star hanging in my damp garden, catching the little pieces of sunshine, wearing the red ribbon because it's pretty. Moving out of my designated 'cookie cutter' role, finding the beauty in the world and letting it shine through me.
