A great friend sent me that quote last night after I regailed her with my most recent insecurities and fears. I told her how my anxiety has been giving me loads of nausea and mental blocks. How it’s been poking away at my confidence and turning it to some variation of mushy fear. After I read that quote and she gave me the ever so subtle reminder that MISTAKES ARE OKAY, ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT YOU LEARN AND TRY, I felt my confidence boost.
As I watch the birds fly strong and proud in their V formation, I’ll remember that I is smart, I is strong, I can do anything.
Sending sunshine and confidence to you on this rainy morning!

I lack in the right kind of confidence – the confidence that allows you to try new things, the confidence that is fueled by passion for your work. I’m always scared to say or do or write the wrong thing. I never feel like my writing is good enough to share (which I’m still surprised that I actually BLOG as often as I do). I’m terrified to start a “real” job/career – what if I’m not good at it?
My confidence is lacking so much that I often compare my life to someone else’s; why do they get to have an adventure and I don’t? Why are they traveling and I’m not? Why do they have a kick-ass job and I don’t? I am not at all proud of thinking this way btw! It hurts and it creates this heartburn feeling from the bottom of my stomach to the middle of my throat! And is it really necessary to make myself feel this way? No.
The reason why I’m not living anyone else’s life is because I am living my own. I need to stop thinking and start doing. I need to take the chances, the risks, and whatever opportunities I am given in order to be the best me I can be. I need to figure out where I want to be and what I want to do. I don’t want to settle. I deserve to work hard and have an adventure or two along the way.
“You can think your heart out but you need to start DOING!”
