Once you decide you're good at a thing, you get better at it.

That's one of the things I've learned playing Stack 'Em over the past few days. Some of the others are nearly as surprising, coming from a video game, and all. 

* Until you understand the goal, you're just spinning your wheels.
* Movement is not the same as progress. 
* Your subconscious recognizes patterns your conscious mind can't see.
* You never know when or where the solution will appear.

The getting better thing puzzled me until I realized that believing in yourself releases you from fear. Releasing fear always, always (not a word I use lightly once, let alone twice) gives you more room to grow.

Amazing that I could learn something so profound from something so trivial. Ain't life grand?

Life certainly is grand, and so are your insights and writing. Love!

Love how you can learn something anywhere!

Believing in yourself gives you power and opens up unlimited possibilities, like surfing the eye of the hurricane of life.

Go stack 'em girl!

You mean to say I am going to get even better at procrastinating! Oh boy.

Believing in yourself is everything! If you don't, who will? (And, BTW, I believe in you, too.)
