Insecurity has been a shadow over me my entire life. The fear of failing or of not being enough has kept me from taking big chances and bigger leaps. As I settle into my thirties I’m trying to think through how I break through that shadow in order to chase after the sort of day to day professional life that I want for myself. One where I’m a little kinder, a little more self aware, a little more vulnerable while also being confident. It’s so much easier said than done.
But maybe it starts with trusting my instincts, and even deeper than my instincts, that visceral reaction that screams I am so afraid I can’t do this, but also it would be so amazing if I did!
That’s what this week’s inspiration if about for me. Being brave enough to face those feelings when you recognize them and taking the steps to make a plan.
What’s been scaring the crap out of you lately that you know you should pursue?
