...as long as we believe we can
i spent so many years not believing in myself, it actually makes me sad to think of the time i wasted watching other people in my life move and grow and flourish while i stayed stuck in my own limiting beliefs, afraid of what believing in myself might amount to.
if we think we can, we're right. if we think we can't, we're also right. so if that's the truth and we know we want better for ourselves, it follows that the hardest work is in the believing.
that work is what i finally started doing in my 30's, when i had hit my proverbial rock bottom and my belief in myself was at an all time low.
i'm so grateful for all of the HARD in my life because without it, i'm not sure i would've made the decision that i deserved more and to feel better than i did for so many years. i do believe our struggles make us stronger. or maybe it's more resilient. or some combination of the two.
once i REALLY started doing the work, slowly i started to reverse the loop that was playing on repeat in my head; the one that told me i couldn't. i wanted so badly to quiet that tape, that i started seeking help in any way i could.
today, i believe in myself more than i ever have and i work harder at believing in myself than i ever have. every. single. day.
today, i truly do believe i can do whatever i set my mind to do.
i hope you believe you can, too. and if not, i hope you find the courage to ask for help.
