If you've been wanting to do something for a long time, and been held back by a little voice in your head ... you've come to the right place. You are not alone.
Sometimes the most negative voices we hear are our own.
Sometimes the thing holding us back the most is our own fear.
Sometimes the words that keep us from realizing our dreams and pursuing our goals is "you're not good enough."
But here's the thing that I want you to tell yourself over and over and over:
That voice is one big lie.
That voice is talking to me right now as I write this.
And to that voice I say: "YOU WILL NOT WIN."
I'll be honest. That voice has been working for a long time, and it's delayed the start of my blog by many many months. But it doesn't matter. Because it hasn't won. This post is a testament to that.
The best response you can give to the bully inside your head is to crush it by doing the very thing it's telling you not to do. Prove it wrong.
I recently read a book called Enough As She Is by Rachel Simmons . (I highly recommend it.) I want to quote a few sentences that really blew my mind:
When you question if you are enough, it's a short walk to doing the same with your daughter. But she needs to hear from you that she is enough as she is, right now, aside from her achievements. There is no one with more access to her "enoughness" than you.
Read that last line again. And again. And again. It was so powerful for me. I think we're living in an epidemic of "not enough" because social media, media, ads, magazines and all the other thousand visual assaults thrown at us daily, dictate to us how to dress, look, act, be perceived.
But that line gave me a new train of thought. Despite the media onslaught, I can work to end this epidemic. First and foremost by strengthening my own "enoughness" and then let that trickle down to my children. Because there is no one with more access to your children's "enoughness" than you.
