Back in December I chose believe as my word for 2012. Believe in dreams, believe in the future, believe in miracles. But over the past week those nasty little inner demons have really whopped me over the head and old insecurities crept in. After having a mini meltdown yesterday I realized that hey, maybe I chose believe because I need to believe in myself.
What keeps me from accomplishing my goals? Fear that I am not good enough, smart enough, that no one cares or wants to hear what I have to say. I am a nobody. A tiny nobody fish in a great, big ocean of amazing fish.
But what if I gave myself a little credit? What if I remembered my accomplishments and all the fears I've overcome? What if I stopped saying, you're such a loser, and started saying, you can totally do this. What if I believed in myself?
I want to give myself permission to try whatever I want and I will pat myself on the back and say, you've got this. You're ready. Even if I don't feel ready and I think maybe I have no idea what I'm doing because the truth is, I know everything I need to know to accomplish what I need to accomplish right now.
I believe in my strengths, my knowledge, my gifts. I believe in me.
