Hello Rick and Maria,

Welcome to Day 16 of Bijou's Be Well Bundle video series!

"Self-trust is the first secret of success." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"A trust leap is when we take a risk to do something new or to do it differently from the way that we’ve done something before." - Rachel Botsman

Trust, this can be hard sometimes. That critical voice can creep in with the "buts", "maybes", and "what ifs". Those can lead to doubt and second guessing, which can lead to stagnation.

Sometimes while tangling we can be unsure of where our tile is going, we have made a mark or two or three that we are undecided about or are learning a tangle that we are uncomfortable with. 

That is where Bijou comes in and tells us to Trust. Trust that it will be ok. Trust the process, the growth that comes when we take that leap. When that voice is trying to introduce hesitation, trust yourself, have faith, and move forward. A beautiful place to practice this is with your art. Develop the confidence there and bring it with you into the world.

So, if that critical voice starts to speak, Bijou reminds us to ask that voice, "What if it all works out?" 

Be well, be you,
