Yesterday, people who had gathered for a therapy group decided to focus on this topic:
Trust in self.
The questions people answered, during the group, included these:
- What does “trust in self” mean to you?
- What tends to decrease your trust in yourself?
- What tends to increase your trust in yourself?
My own thoughts, about “trust in self,” right now?
When I got up this morning, I had trust that I would write a post that would be meaningful.
I just went into another room, and this is what I found:
That’s something I’m familiar with, because I purchased it five months ago, in May, during my spring vacation. That mug has already appeared in another post, here.
I also found something else, which is a new arrival to this home:
Here’s what I want to tell you about that piece of art:
It’s a watercolor, painted by my long-time friend, Paul Nagano, who appeared in a blog post that was very important to me: “A walk down Boylston Street, Boston, on April 29, 2013.”
As my son just said, “It looks brighter in real life” (if you can imagine that).
Paul’s watercolor is now hanging in a spot that has been conspicuously empty, in our home, since we moved here.
I was waiting to find the “right thing.”
I had trust in myself that I would.
I mean, look at it, people!
It’s Boston, and it’s springtime!
Many thanks to Paul Nagano, to people who (are learning to) trust themselves, and to you — of course! — for visiting here today.
