Why write about self esteem?  Falling victim to one’s environment is a cliché that has echoed throughout society to the point of exhaustion, but are we really victims of our surroundings? I believe that despite our environment, every person possesses the inner strength to rise above their individual circumstances and find happiness within themselves.

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

"The lower your self-esteem, the more apt you are to believe that someone else holds the key to your happiness."

– Hellen Hemphill–

So how does self-esteem fit into this picture?

We hear the phrase "self-esteem"  all the time, but what does that really mean? Isn’t it a pivotal  part of how we see and  interact with the world around us?  If our world is a reflection of us, then self-esteem is our paintbrush. Imagine it’s one of those rare days where everything  seems to "go right".  Have you ever had one of those? You get up rested, you smile at yourself in the mirror,  you actually like what you see. You master your domain effortlessly. And people seem friendlier and want to be around you.

Contrast that with the opposite, one of those "Other" days, you slap at the alarm 4 times, finally rolling out of bed 10 minutes late, hanging your head "Oh yuck, another Monday!" You stumble into the kitchen to grab a cup of coffee, snap at the kids, kick the dog…well ok not really…but you get the picture.

Have you noticed one of the key elements involved in both experiences is how you are feeling about yourself? About what you are doing with your life, where you are going, and how you perceive everyone around you is colored by that all encompassing factor; your self esteem.

    Hi Lyca,
    I really like the new art design you chose- it is very uplifting and story like and invites the viewer to come in and discover what it’s all about! Double Tweets!

    aha- well this is strong and evocative too. I love seashore imagery and the larger writing page is a better presentation area. You could save the other theme page for a poem, article or such. Go girl!
