Mom Speaks

"I read your blog stuff today. I have felt lately that you have been withdrawing...I know you are fighting the battle of "who you are," but why don't you just be satisfied to know that you are a human being who is prone to good days and bad days. You have so much going for you...looks, brains, writing and artistic have it all, fair maiden. I agree that you should use it to satisfy yourself and what you want out of life. You don't have to please the whole world or any of your friends and relatives. But, please don't be so hard on yourself. You are a good of the best. You really don't need to prove that to anybody. Just be yourself. You have so much going on in your mind that is is almost a burden to be so blessed, isn't it? But you have written and made some beautiful things in your life. You could put whole books together of the lovely things you have written and created. I can't do that. How many people can do that? Only a few chosen few of which you are one. Anyway, to make a long story short, have faith in yourself. Believe in yourself. Love yourself. Stop worrying about everybody else in the world. Let them hoe their own rows. And you hoe your row!! OK??

Your Mother who just stepped off the soapbox!!

Love ya...."
