I Believe in Myself

The Whine-Wine Blog

Because every rant, rave or whine goes down better with a great glass of wine!!

How many times have you said – “I Believe in Myself?” I saw those words on a poster in the workout room at my job. This was the very first time that I saw them. You may be thinking, yeah, duh if that was the first time you worked out in that room. But, you see, I’ve been working out in that same workout room for over a year now. I never noticed it. What makes this stranger, is I saw the red poster next to it that said: “Don’t wish for it – Work for it.”

(Sigh – a long one) I guess God and the Universe was speaking to me. You see, that morning I was contemplating. I had a decision to make. I had to decide for real for real, what direction I was going to take my life. I had something tragic happen at work (well to me it was tragic) and I found myself at the proverbial cross in the road. Which way do I go? Do I stay in this dead-end job where they don’t value me and quite frankly don’t want me and my kind there anyway? Or, do I take the leap of faith and pursue this writing thing – something that I love. Something that I’m gifted at and something that resonates in my soul.

I know a lot of you out there find yourselves in the same predicament. You’re standing at the crossroads wondering what to do, follow your heart or listen to your head? I’m here to tell you that you are not alone. You have the right to re-evaluate your life no matter what stage you’re in or what age you are. I say, as long as you have breath in your body, you have the opportunity to change your life for the better. Go write that book, open that restaurant, start that business! Get out there and do you! You owe it to yourself to be the best that you can be and live up to your God-given potential.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering what I decided – Well… you’ll either have to buy me a glass of wine and ask me or watch and see!

Until next time, enjoy the journey!
