Life's tests

A week ago, if you all can recall, I titled a post loving myself?
As a kid, I had self-confidence and believed in helping others because that's one of my passions.
Over the years, however, my self-confidence has shrakened because of poor choices.
I believe that I am being tested because this week, I've experienced some things that caused me to re-examine my goal of trying to love me again.
I believe that to improve ourselves, we will be tested. What I did was remind myself of what I had written on this board that I love myself period. Not writing this with arrogance, but I love myself.
I am being tested.
Wooh, it ain't easy!

"I believe that to improve ourselves, we will be tested."


i agree with you; i think it has to do with moving outside your comfort zone. you grow every time you rise to the challenge.

I am really enjoying reading your posts as you progress through this change you have chosen to make in your life.


If you don't mind I would like to reframe your comment about being "tested" this week.


Perhaps instead of looking at it as being tested, you might try to see it as opportunities being provided to you to practice your new attitude.

What a great topic!


I keep a podcast of one of Dr. Wayne Dyer's radio shows on my blackberry.
