Cerise- I can totally relate to the self-doubting aspect. I sometimes feel like I am trapped there and I will never get because no one else is ever going to hire me
I know that is not true cause I am good enough, I am smart enough and doggone it, people like me! (thank you Stuart Smalley
Right now I am trying to focus on not getting stressed out, finding time for me, updating my work skills and improving my French (key thing to getting in the Government here).
I am starting to do yoga and my belly dance class (very theraputic and empowering I might add) starts up on September 20th. I am also reading a book on spirituality that I bought months ago hoping that I will get some grounding from that.
I talked to my mum tonight and she is improving - her speech is no longer slurry and she sounds like her spirits are a bit brighter!
