I’m guilty of being my own worst critic when it comes to pretty much everything I do. Talking about what I’m currently working on or hoping to achieve always comes out as me completely downplaying and discrediting my talents. I tell myself I do this because I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging, but the real reason behind it is because I just don’t feel worthy. I tell myself I’m not good enough to be dreaming so big—and it typically comes at me as a familiar question: Who do I think I am trying to accomplish or create this thing on my heart? What makes me so special that I should get to pursue this or that? All the while I’m sitting here telling all my friends and any random stranger that will listen “Hey! Your worthy of love! You have good ideas that are worth pursuing! Yes you can!”
As the year is wrapping up (hello, how is it November 5th already?!) I’m making a conscious choice to finish the year strong, believing in myself and (attempting) to trade all the shame I’ve attached to my dreams with grace and love.
Are you finding it easy to cheer on your friends but when it comes to yourself you can only come up with excuses as to why you don’t deserve to give yourself a chance?
Here’s what I’m doing right now to cultivate a new perspective: I take a few minutes each day to write down one thing I love about who I am in order to build up confidence and offer myself the kindness and love that pours so easily from my heart onto my friends. It definitely feels silly and pointless at first, but I think it’s finally sinking in a bit! I've created a FREE worksheet to help you be intentional about celebrating all your amazingness, you can download The I'm Worth It Worksheet here!
