This blog started out as a personal blog, which turned into something much more. The entire time I spent as an active duty military wife left me aching for community. The communities I found lend me to realize that life is much better with community in it. As time moved, I learned ways to embrace confidence in myself, and wanted others to find it to.
Once my husband retired, I wanted to move home to the Puget sound. We sacrificed alot to do that, but now we rest humbly in the place we've always called home. At which point it hit me...all I ever really wanted to do was move home, but never aspired to know what to do once it came. Now What?!
Inspiration hit while watching a segment on the Ellen Degenerous show "Cash for Kindness"- a entertainment clip to provoke people to help a stranger, and in return, the show rewards with cash. What if we encouraged people to be kind everyday? Suddenly the roots for this blog sprouted.
It wasn't long until I realized that while this concept was good, something is missing. Focusing so much on others puts huge strain on the most important resource we have to make things happen. Ourself! In a conversation with my friend, she pointed out the difference between self-esteem and self-worth. Self esteem is how we feel others think of us, and self-worth is how we view ourselves. Self-worth is what enables us to believe that we are capable of doing our best with our talents, of contributing well in society, and that we deserve to lead a fulfilling life. Having self-worth means you you have the confidence to be yourself and let others be themselves.
