I receive little tidbits of inspiration in my email everyday called a Daily OM. Their website is located at http://www.dailyom.com/

I wanted to share the one from today.....

Borrowed Vision
Somebody Believes In You
There are times in our lives when we may find ourselves facing challenges that can seem overwhelming. The situation or task we are struggling with seems hopeless, and it is easy to stop believing in ourselves, our goals, and our dreams. It is during these moments that it can be reassuring and reaffirming to turn to the people in our lives who do believe in us, especially when we are finding it hard to believe in ourselves. An encouraging word, a reassuring look, or hearing the words "I believe in you" from someone who matters can help us turn our situations around in an instant.

Everybody has someone who believes in them, whether this person is a teacher, parent, friend, loved one, or an employer. Often their belief can wrap us in warmth, bolster us, and offer us a supportive hand to grab onto until we can regain our own support. Having that special person who believes in our abilities and our worth is a wonderful gift. But when we are feeling unworthy, it may be difficult to take in something so precious. We may even feel like we need to do it all on our own and that we shouldn't be asking for help. However, in letting their belief and support impact you, you are acknowledging the part of yourself that knows you are worthy of trust and esteem. By allowing them to believe in you, your own belief in yourself and your abilities will start to emerge again. Borrow their vision, and you can make it your own.

If your special someone is not there to spur you on, you also can lift yourself up with the gift of a positive image. When you feel uncertain, you can create a vision of the future you desire that will serve as a beacon of light. To do so, simply imagine a future that is exactly as you'd like it to be. Imagine in detail how you feel, what you are doing, and how others are responding to you. Make your vision as real as possible, and allow your doubts to recede so you can focus solely on the goal you seek. The more intently you focus on the image of what you want, your belief in yourself will step to the forefront, making it easier for the universe to open up a path and guide you.

Thank you for posting this. I recently started a new eadeavor and have felt somewhat deflated over it. I was beginning to question whether or not I had the ability to do it. It really does help to seek out support from those who support us. I call those "borrowed visions," my jewels. I also want to tell you how inspirational your site here has become to me. It is usually the first place I check on once finished with work. There are very thought-provoking and motivational topics here for victims of domestic violence. Thank you for all you do for those of us who either are enduring, or have endured, domestic violence. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
