Roasted Vegetable Tostadas

Roasted Vegetable Tostadas - Healthy Mexican food! Yes pleeeeease!

Do you have a hard time giving yourself a pat on the back?

When you finish a task, say a drawing or building a chair or making a presentation at work, do you only see what you did wrong, not what you did right? My head is full of self-exploration with the Bible study I’ve been taking part in. It’s not too hard for me to find things I enjoy or narrow down aspects of my personality, but it is hard for me to admit I’m good at something.

I dare not call myself an artist because what if no one appreciates my art? I dare not call myself a writer because it’s not like I’ve written anything that important. I dare not call myself a photographer because sometimes the pictures just don’t turn out right. Maybe I’m just afraid of being one of those people who toots my own horn, but can’t I even admit to myself that I’m good at something?

I loved the heat wave we had last week, but now I’m back to freezing my cinnamon buns off. I had a friend laughing at me the other day because I think below 50 degrees is too cold to go running. Even if I’m warm from sweating and working hard, I don’t like it if…
