Friday Flowers


It's been a quieter week for me this week which has been so lovely, I must say. A breather in amongst the craziness is sometimes all we need to give us a bit more energy to keep on going. I have had the chance to catch up on a few of my favourite blogs this week which has been so inspiring. One post I read by Vicki Archer on confidence really did it for me. If you haven't already read it I encourage you to do so. I have always struggled with self-confidence, like many women and it really is very inspiring what Vicki has to say on the matter.

I hope you enjoy your weekend.

Hi Anna,
I am stunned that you have EVER doubted yourself - you are an amazing designer and business woman. I look up to you in so many ways. Please don't ever feel that you are less than perfect!

Hi Anna ... I love your flowers ... makes everyday life a lil' special ... as for confidence ... I can do with a booster shot of that myself,I wonder if it is a woman thing ... a mother thing... or a designer thing :) ... I'll head off to Vicky Archers blog and see if I get some of what you found.

Anna, thank you so much for this link. I clicked on another of Vicki's post 'To blog or not to blog'. I am new to blogging as well and have started to wonder if it is worth pursuing as it is quite time consuming and it's extremely hard to gauge if my posts are of interest to anybody. Her words however have really affirmed the reasons why I wanted to started blogging and I feel much more positive about continuing on my little blogging journey.
I certainly agree with all the other comments too, I don't see why you doubt yourself when you seem to have such a talent for what you do and have developed enormous credibility in your industry.
