My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

First, Trust Yourself!


trust prompt

Author unknown for this quote (one of my favorites) but such wise words.

When we get to the point of truly trusting our own instincts, without much second guessing, doubt…we have come a long way.

I’m still working on it but making progress. 😉 I hope this quote inspires you too.

Created for the April 28th Woven Dreams prompt: TRUST

  1. Such wisdom in that quote, Geraldine. As you say, a work in progress, but work worth relentlessly pursuing! 🙂

  2. i think learning to trust yourself is def something we are always learning you know…though i would agree i am making progress as well…will be back in the mix this week…smiles…good to see you after my return…

  3. The quote is right on! Love it!
    And also the title you gave to this post.
    It’s not an easy task, but I agree it’s very important. Just as to be true to oneself…
    Happy Sunday!

  4. How very true that is…it just occured to me though no garage sales anymore unless they are near, books and I love jewellery broken or otherwise true or fake or anything I can untangle anything and I decorate with them…usually they are often at garage sales because they cant unttangle, so they are cheap, how do you manage garage sales without a car? although I do have a cart…..

  5. Oh yes, to know and to trust ourselves is so important.

  6. Love the capture and the quote!

  7. What a beautiful quote! Hugs! 🙂

  8. You have to trust yourself and your instincts, so true. Good quote and love the photo.

    Hi Vesper, Thanks so much. As you said to me in a comment the other day, you are such a good friend! xoxox

    Hi Lorraine, Yes indeed. As for garage sales, a bit off topic but I don’t actually have the time or interest to go to them. Have enough of my own ahemmm…junk already LOL. I know, there are treasures to be found at times, especially books. Now that I have my Kindle…well, you know. I won’t sing the praises of ereaders again. 😉

    Hi Val, I agree. But sometimes, hard to do.
