True Confessions, Part XXIXVIMXXIV

So here's something I've been exploring: the "FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT" way of life.

It's kind of cool, actually, as long as you don't lose your nerve.  When you can project the confidence that you know exactly what you're doing, that everything is going your way because it simply wouldn't dare do otherwise, that things are working out exactly as they should, and it's all because of your sheer awesomeness... well, even if it wasn't strictly true to begin with, sometimes it ends up actually turning out that way.  And somehow, you just make it look easy.

Like magic.

And then you find out?  That you had that wild, free-flying awesomeness inside you the whole time.

Trust me on this one.

Love Shelley!


  1. What an amazing page! Love the colours you used, your penmanship is perfection (as per usual), and love the sentiment.

    And, just for the record, you ARE awesome!!!!


  2. I love the meaning behind this! I think I need a bit of pretend confidence in my life. And the colours are gorgeous too.

  3. This is such an incredible journal page!!! I absolutely love your colors! I'm completely inspired!

  4. I love your words here and the fake it till you make it approach! Your art is beautiful and inspiring. I just popped over from Mary's Splendid Adventure blog and so glad I did.

    Sometimes with working part time and creating on the other days and keeping the home in order etc... I feel a little overwhelmed, but I know I am to continue creating and not giving up on my dreams in that area, so your words to "fake it till you make it" are so inspiring to me and just what I needed to hear tonight. Keep on keeping on!

    Thank you!
