‘It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.’
When it was suggested I should write a blog I have to admit I felt powerless, pathetic and pessimistic.
‘But I don’t know how to do it!’ I whined.
I was stuck and I felt a bit of a fraud.
After all, I’m supposed to be ‘Mrs Confident’, guiding my clients to a more confident life, for goodness sake.
On my walk around the lane in the pale winter sunshine, (my grand effort at keeping fit…) I spotted some clumps of snowdrops, bravely blooming amongst the brambles.
Gradually, my face relaxed. I was beginning to warm up.
I was also beginning to believe in myself…
Back in the warmth of my study I couldn’t wait to switch on my computer.
My heart pounded (yes, really!) as I logged on to WordPress for the first time.
A tiny blue jug of snowdrops sits on my desk as I write today.
