do you trust yourself

by purelytwins

After I learned it is okay to make mistakes, I now think about…life.

Where to go?

What is the right path?

I have always been the person who was unsure about things.



Always worrying too much. Worrying about pleasing others instead of stopping and asking, “what do I want?”

Have you ever noticed yourself doing this too?

I realized I don’t trust myself. I don’t let myself just do something.


An important word.

What does trust mean to you?

To me, trust is truly letting go and feeling at peace that letting  go will be better than I could have ever imagined. Trust that IT WILL BE OKAY without thinking twice.

Do you TRUST yourself?

Have you ever stopped to try to find your inner voice?

The better we get at paying attention to our core instincts, the better we will be at listening to our gut.  Trust that our intuition will be right (well most of the time).  So, keep finding ways to look inside yourself. Never give up on YOU!

How my day started yesterday after my morning walk. Not a bad view to work from, eh? 

I have been enjoying some alone time to think. But I also appreciate being surrounded by loved ones.

I am remembering to:

Keep life simple.

Enjoy the little things.

Trust. Be strong. Have faith.

Smile more. Laugh often. Never stop loving.


Remember God made each one of us to be unique…to be different…we just have to trust ourselves that we know what to do.

Today I am focusing on trusting myself.  Trusting I am making the right decisions in my life, so I can be able to help others.  The more I learn to trust myself, I find I gain more self confidence. The confidence I need to reach out more to help and touch others.

Crazy how this one word can have such an impact on your life.


I ask of you today to take some time to ask yourself – “DO I TRUST ME?” Write down ways how you can work on trust. Do you notice you struggle in certain areas of your life? Do this without pressure. Without judgement.  Have faith in your feelings.

I trust me.

I trust you.

great post sweetie! I think trusting yourself comes with loving yourself and then this lets you radiate love to others 🙂 I’m a worrier and often think too much but keeping things simple where possible makes goals more attainable and helps to maintain confidence levels….your finding me series is very inspiring and I’ve benefitted from it greatly after having Leo.

I am really excited about this series you are doing! I am going through a transitional time in my life as well, and I can definitely relate. I have realized before that I have trust issues…but until reading this I didn’t realize that I, too, lack trust in myself. Wow. Anyway, you girls are my favorite bloggers, and you really inspire me. Thanks for sharing your life with us! 🙂

Wow, beautiful post sisters <3 You wrote it beautifully. We honestly don't put enough trust in ourselves. I honestly don't think we give our bodies enough credit, actually. I'm trusting myself and body a lot more lately. <3

Love you

Hey ladies, I read your blog daily and love your philosophy on food and eating! I notice you eat a lot of tahini, other than taste is their a reason for this and what is your brand of preference? You are both such positive role models. Keep it up. Cheers!

purelytwins October 22, 2012 - 8:17 am

thanks Lisa, we really just eat tahini because we love the taste and just satisfies us more than nut butters just our preference, though tahini is a great source of calcium 😉 so added bonus. We like raw tahini from Artisana and there are a few good roasted tahini brands out there.

I used to be a worrier! I worried about EVERYTHING and it brought on SO much stress and anxiety!

I am slowly starting to trust my intuition and what I find is that when I listen…I usually make the best decision.
