Self-doubt is a real killer. If you’re like me, you probably live in your head. It hasn't always worked for me however. Sometimes you can be your worst enemy. You see, sometimes that voice you hear in your head is either going to guide you or stunt you. Then, if you’re in the approval of others, this could really stop you dead in your tracks. It’s all about mastering the balance of how much you sit in your own head and actually execute.
For example, Bill Gates or Oprah are not looking for peoples approval. If that were true, they wouldn't be billionaire’s. I learned a long time ago that the only approval I need is the man or woman upstairs. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes you fall into the wanting of others approval, but that doesn't last very long. When you start caring about everybody's opinions about you or things you're doing, you can get stuck in what they think you should be doing verses what you want to do. Of course, some opinions might be right on point and may stop you from making a mistake. However, what I'm saying is, don't allow the opinions of others complicate any self doubt that you may have already started creating for yourself. When you start to doubt yourself do it anyway. It's when you continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, that there could be a real problem.

Cassie Reed (Dating )
Dating for me is non existent at this time in my life. I would love to date but I know I'm not ready. To be honest I just never been good at picking someone good for me. I guess you don't really pick them but you let them into your space. Like Zoey always says, "Be careful who you let into your space." I would have to say I have had some real space hogger's. It was always about them and I didn't fit into the relationship. That's funny because I thought it took two to make a thing go right. So you can see why I'm taking a break from dating. It would be nice to be in something real. You know, a balance, not so much of just one, but just enough of both of us and that we both grow. I know that when the time is right he will walk into my life or I'll walk into his.
Well, life is good I have my girls. It looks like I might have found my future husband. At least in my dreams, he's tall dark and handsome and the new head of operations. It's funny because I'm not shy when it comes to men. I would have to say it's something about him that makes me feel like a school girl. Now, I don't know if that's a good thing or not. However, It's something about this tall, dark and handsome man. I can't put my finger on it but any who. The company is doing great! Well, I mean for our first month of business any way. It amazes me that three friends executed an idea into reality. How many people or friends could say that?
It's something about her that I just don't get. I mean, if I got her she probably wouldn't be that interesting at all. I want to get to know her but she keeps me at bay. This would normally motivate me to move on. However, she's a smart, sexy, and educated woman. It's so crazy how she shows up when I'm trying to take a break. I must admit that I'm intrigued. Which doesn't happen often enough I might add. I wonder what she's doing at this moment. Awww man, there I go drifting again. This girl has really got a hold on me. I like it though, it's refreshing to feel something other than just lust for a beautiful woman! Ok, ok, I must focus. I have a whole day ahead of me and I must get things done. Time waits for no one, yes? I must say however, that she certainly is a beautiful distraction! One that I'm finding very difficult to ignore.
