Sometimes I have doubts. I look around at all the amazing women and designers in the world and I think about how inferior I am to them. I want to do more, be better and faster. Sometimes I go into the "If I can't do it all perfectly I might as well do nothing" mindset. Off and on all month I've really been struggling with this.

I have readers from all sort of backgrounds and beliefs. I don't mention religious thoughts very much because I don't want to offend anyone. But while blog surfing today I came across this video and I had to post about it.

Elder Uchtdorf is my fav. I love his heart and the way he speaks. He always seems to say things that are so reliant in my life. I just love this video. It made me cry happy joyful 'I get it' tears. It makes me realize that my creations are not only helping out others they are pleasing to God. I don't have to be perfect, or even better in order to impress Him. I just need to stop doubting and start trusting.

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul... You don't need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty... The more you trust and relay upon the spirit the greater your capacity to create."

My husband goes through the same thing - often - with his music. If he can't be as good as the best, why bother. I am constantly struggling to show him how good he is. No - he's not his heroes. But they probably weren't their heroes, either - know what I mean?

Obviously I think you're awesome! If I ever actually get my etsy site ready to go, I planned on approaching you about a banner. You do that, right?
