Yes, I can.. by inessence

Please view large

Recently in our camera in one hand & coffee/tea in the other gorgeous girly group – I posed a question in our just give me 5 minutes forum asking what are five things you couldn’t live without. The very sweet Linaji gave a response that got me thinking (thank you Lina!). It was I cannot do without working on my thinking…

This is something that is available to everyone and something that many of us forget when stressed, lacking confidence, etc. Our thoughts deeply affect our moods, how we perceive things, situations and ourselves in general as well as our wellbeing in a powerful way. Well, I’m a serial self-doubter and this image has been born as a reminder to myself that – yes, I can.. believe in myself.
