You ARE good at things.

I think one of the things I struggle with the most is accepting the fact that,
I, Freya Hammond-Williams, am good at things.

I beat myself up almost everyday about something I "can't do" or I'm not "good at," but the message I'm receiving lately is that I can do things.
I am good at things.
Yeah, maybe I don't make a s%@t ton of money.
Yeah, maybe I don't floss as much as I should.
Yeah, maybe I eat a tad more sugar then I should.
Yeah, maybe I'm late on a bill here and there and I suck at saving money.
But does this mean I'm not good at anything?

Do you get these feelings? Of just not being good enough or that you can't do anything??

While reading my blog feed today I saw this book:

And I feel like this may be the next book I read.
While the description makes it sound a little more light hearted then I'm feeling right now, I think it may bring some light into my world! 

Has anyone read it yet??
Do you have any advise for me or the other readers???


  1. I saw this post and googled the book because I was interested.
    Here is a preview of it!


  2. I haven't read it, but I can sympathize. Nothing is worse for self-esteem than job-hunting. I thought I used to be a confident person until I began this process. Feel better lady :) Times will get better.

    Something that helps me is doing something that you are good at after a particularly bad event. For example, today I had an interview that didn't go great. I took a run and knit some after it. It made me feel a bit better. {hugs}

  3. Pshaw!! You can do anything and anyone who makes you feel otherwise is just scared of you................write your own book :)

  4. everyone made their own book, if they can, that mean you can do this:)

    Check it out if you are interesting. I'm giving a giveaway for a design blog, the talented sisters from Truly Your blog, they will be drawing a blog something you want, with props, a draw picture that look likes you. Interesting? Go on and enter and hope to win...


    Good Luck

    1. Hey, I completely understand and love this post. A few weeks ago I did a post about self compassion. I feel that many of us are not kind enough to ourselves. We need to give ourselves a break and recognize and accept our strengths. Great post!

      Enjoying your blog.

  5. I haven't read it, but I have been hearing about it and it sounds wonderfully needed to remember:)

  6. I'd like to read this too. Thanks for the tip! :)
