    I am not perfect, but I am good enough.
.
.
For quite some time now, I have been struggling with feeling confident - confident about what I’m doing with my life, confident in my own skin. I felt trapped. I felt ashamed of all my failures, everything I gave up and everything that once gave my life more meaning. I have always strived for perfection that it exhausted me, but where did this need to be perfect come from? How could I not see that where I am now is a million times better than I could’ve ever imagined?

So I practiced gratefulness. Pure gratefulness for the things I’ve wished for that I have now, the things I’m on my way to accomplishing and for the very simple fact that I’m still here -  alive and well.
.
Gratefulness has made me content with what I have, who I am and how I look like. 
You are not perfect. You’ll never be perfect, but you will always be good enough.

    I just want to take a moment to brag on my #writersgroup . I just realized we’d had our one year anniversary recently. Once a month we share samples of our #wips giving feedback and participate in #flashfiction . There is so much talent and one of our members just became an #indieauthor !👏🏼 We have 48 members and growing! 😱

    She brought him a teddy bear with a handwritten message on the tag. Forever in my heart, Nurse Sandi. ⠀ “Thank you,” I said sincerely. I was thanking her for more than just the bear. She asked about how he was doing and then turned the focus on my well-being. I felt like I could tell her the truth and she might understand. ⠀ “I don’t really know how to stop feeling scared,” I said. ⠀ “I know a little trick,” she said. “When you feel blue or scared, like the world is hard on you, stand like this.” She broadened her stance, puffer up her chest, and put her hands on her hips. I smiled. She looked so cute. ⠀ “Like super woman, see?” she said, smiling. “Your body tricks your brain into thinking you are confident and happy. Then you start actually feeling that way. Try it!” ⠀ I did not want to try it. I didn’t think anything would help my blues. However, I would do anything for Nurse Sandi. I broadened my stance, puffed up my chest, and put my hands on my hips. After a second or two, I looked over. ⠀ “It’s not working,” I said, feeling silly. ⠀ “Well, you have to do it for longer than that,” she said, laughing. “You’re a super-hero!” ⠀ That's the funny part about real-life super-heroes. They don’t usually wear capes. In our case, our super hero wore pink scrubs. She saved our baby’s life. She changed our family's story. No words would ever describe the level of our gratitude for her. ⠀ And just like that, we were suddenly friends forever. ⠀

    Jangan memandang seseorang hanya dari sisi buruknya saja, cobalah lihat sisi baiknya juga. Agar kamu tahu bahwa yang baik bukan kamu saja dan yang buruk bukan dia saja. #justwrite 👌

—
“Godfrey Lackland simply wants to do his work as an artist.
All that stands in his way is a wellness retreat, India, and the love of two women.”

—
Your 1st Edition comes with a postcard from India as well as an autographed page of 1st-draft manuscript, all wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string.
—
Set in Bangkok, Bali and southern India, #TheCreativeArtofWishfulness takes controlled mayhem and harmonious insanity to the next literary.

    First draft for The Fairy Baby books then titled The Baby Angel, circa 2011. I had NO idea 7 years later I'd have 11 books on @amazon, @webuyblack and on my website - thefairybabybooks.com!! Written and illustrated including merchandise; dolls, blankets, backpacks and more on @redbubble. I just followed the impulse. Still following it. Whomever needs this little nudge, sign, divine intervention ... here it is! You CAN do it. Just focus and do it! You got this! I believe in you! 😁 #JustWrite #ForTheKiddos #writersofinstagram #Lol #CuteHair ☺️

    I saw this and I loved it so I decided to post it:)
And I know I suck at posting at a decent time but I’m super stressed out and I’ve been struggling for a while with a bunch of stuff. I’ll try to get back into a good posting schedule when I start feeling better

    I’m guilty of snagging up memes and poems that tell me that I’m worthy of X,Y and Z and re-sharing the hell out of them. It’s nice to rely on those words when it may seem impossible to conjure up our own.
.
But nothing beats sitting down with a pen and paper and writing out what you deserve- because you usually confront the wounds. .
🌸You say ‘I deserve honesty’ because for too long I let deceit become comfortable in my home.
.
🌸You say ‘I deserve kindness’ because cruelty has and will always render my heart unconscious.
.
🌸You say ‘I deserve autonomy’ because melting into another human will always leave me disfigured and unrecognizable.
.
🌸You say ‘I deserve forgiveness’ because I am an imperfect masterpiece stumbling along in no malicious manner.
.
Say these truths out loud. Hear the way they sound. Feel the way they fit perfectly on you ❤️

    What’s your one thing? 
The thing that sets you up for the rest of your day. The thing you don’t want to go a day without. — 
Writing is my non-negotiable on a daily basis. It allows me to: clear my head, set my intention for the day, recognize that there is always something to be thankful for, remind me of my goals and put my life into perspective. When I write I feel accomplished and when I feel like I have accomplished something I feel good.

    It's very odd to think of how far I have come as an author and my first book isn't even out yet! I did my very first live video today! If you follow me on Facebook you can watch it there at Facebook.com *slash* kmichelemoseley *slash* videos. If you don't want to look that hard, I can tell you my first book, DARCARA has a new release date of February 2020. I can't say how much I appreciate everyone who follows and supports my writing. There's no point in doing this without you. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ #shelfie #ilikedragons #booksbooksbooks #homelibrary #newseasons

    My church just concluded a summer series on the life of David. A particular part of his story that has reverberated within me in recent years is the parable that the prophet Nathan shares as a way to reveal David’s sins and why it outraged him so much. I’ve written a reflection on it and hope it may bless others. The link is in my bio.

    I've never understood the constant need to be around others. I'm by no means a recluse, and at certain points in my life I've recognised the need to develop socially and have prioritised a slightly more social existence. 
However, too much exposure and my batteries feel so drained. At times I long for a lowly-lit room and the sound of anything but the human voice. 
To me, having that space is so important. Besides, how else would we get anything important done?

    "I used to find myself motivated by the fact that *someday* I’d be a writer. But in the last few years, as I’ve started taking my writing more seriously, I’ve realized my notion of becoming a writer *someday* isn’t truly motivating.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because the fact is: I AM a writer.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In recognizing that ‘am’ statement, I feel more rooted in the present, which is so much more motivating in terms of sitting down to write now instead of putting it off until later or someday.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But being a writer is hard, & there are lots of days I don’t believe in myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So writer me, back on that epiphany day, decided to leave love notes to myself so I would remember.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s this little sign on my desk.
I have another one on my bookshelf.
And yet another one on my desk in my classroom.
All places I write hold that little reminder of who I am created to be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And it has made all the difference."
