20 Posts All Women Should Read

Earlier in the month I got an email from DJ Nelson saying that my article My Face/Her Face had changed the way she thought about cosmetic surgery.

This is such a compliment.

In fact, the article, she said, made her not want to shave a little bit off the top of her nose after all.

Major compliment.

She went further and included my article on All Diva Media in a post titled: 20Posts All Women Should Read. (Yes, I did take her advice and read them.)

That's a compliment that netted me hundreds more page views.

I know this sounds a little lame, but it just barely occurred to me that to tell my readers about the article, and link to the it, is not just bragging. It's reciprocation. Of course I want to reciprocate, I'm just not very good at believing, feeling worthy of or embracing success. But, I'm actively working on that.

So, DJ Nelson, I feel privileged and grateful to have been included. Next time, and hopefully there is a next time, you include any link to me - I will immediately reciprocate.

Embrace the success that is yours! There is a difference between being confident and being arrogant. If you are taking the time to think about it I'd guess you are on the confident side. Anyway, thanks for the link back. Happy (almost) New Year.

Thanks for understanding DJ. I'm really trying to embrace success. I'm chasing it pretty hard, but when it turns around and looks me in the face I feel like hiding under the bed. I need to stop that.
