You could never have convinced me when I was younger that there would come a time in the future when I would feel confident - feel FREE.
that I would stop people-pleasing and being a doormat for people,
that I would stop feeling sick to my stomach whenever I would have to speak in public, that I would eventually say sayonara to men and friends who treated me badly,
that I would feel fully expressed,
that I would have my own business that required me to put myself out there.
that I would come to feel comfortable in my own skin, even when I screwed up,
that I would stop procrastinating & second-guessing myself,
that I would come to see myself as precious and worthy.
that I would come to really TRUST MYSELF.
But that’s what happened.
I know that many of you reading this have a talent, gift, message, or service that could benefit others in some way. Maybe you'd like to create a business, become a coach, or just share your insights with others either through writing or speaking. Maybe you're wishing you were more confident in your relationships.
But you've got the brakes on because of fear, insecurity, and self-doubt.
I have so been there, my friend. And that younger version of myself would never have imagined or believed that it could be any different.
But that's what happened.
