Are You Humble?

zentangle009Today’s card is from my zentangles. It’s actually a mandala with zentangle elements. I’m most proud of the shading on this one.

I hesitated before I wrote that. It seems…well…a bit prideful, you know? (Pssst, you can click it to see a larger image)

But then again, why shouldn’t I say I like something that I did? Lately I’ve seen a trend. There’s this overbearing sense of humility out on the web.

“Gee, I don’t have anything you could possible want but here’s a book I wrote. Maybe you’ll like it?”

“Oh I don’t know why you are here reading my post when you could be out doing something really amazing.”

“If you have nothing better to do, maybe you could tell a friend about this widget I’m selling? It might really be okay.”

Y’all. Listen up.

There’s nothing wrong with saying, “I am selling houses now. If you are in the market, chat me up. I’ve got some killer marketing strategies.”

Or

“I rock at teaching entrepeneurs how to really shine.”

Which would you be more interested in?

A) So yeah, I write naughty girl porn books
or
B) I write this great series about sexy-as-sin shifters who meet their matches. From steamy New Orleans to saunas in Wisconsin, you will want one of these passionate hotties curled up in the bed with you.

I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again.

Be your own publicist.

Publicist
I give you permission to tell me something amazing about yourself in the comments. Got a book you wrote? Have a product you sell? Host a can’t-be-missed radio show? Are you one bad mammajamma?

Tell me. Sing your own praises. Believe in yourself.

Yep, that’s your 180 seconds today. Commit to believing yourself. Commit to buying the hype about YOU.

I think you are freakin’ awesome. I want you to believe that too.

Oh and hey. I wrote this hella hot series about singe-your-hair sexy shifters. Check them out!

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
