Welcome to my very FIRST Blog! I've been procrastinating about this for about mmmm... 6 months. It's taken me that long to figure out HOW to do a Blog, and even now that I'm typing I'm still not sure if I'm doing it correctly! It's all about moving out of your comfort zone and pushing yourself just that little bit further than you did the day before.
I shared this image below on my Facebook page 2 days ago and it's had over 2000 views (& counting) plus more than 22 shares. You never know when a post is going to resonate with your Facebook Community or when it'll be a complete fizzer. I just write from my heart and post what I feel most resonates within me & what I think my tribe can benefit from.
By the reaction of this post, I've obviously hit a spot that resonates with a many women and I'm no different. I still have days where I doubt what I'm doing; is it good enough? Am I making a difference? What if I don't have all the answers? What if I never succeed? What if people don't like me?
And then I take a deep breath and remember..
Just how far I've come,
all the battles I've won,
All the fears I've overcome.
When I look back over the last 5 years, I am so much more ahead than I ever thought I'd be! It was always a silent dream of mine to become a Life Coach and Counsellor.. NEVER one that I'd ever be brave enough to speak out aloud about. It took hiring a Coach & having 6 sessions of my own just to be brave enough to start up my own Facebook Business page, each week I found excuses after excuses as to why I couldn't do it, tears, fears and insecurities coming up ready to be healed.
What I've come to learn is that each time we try to step out of our comfort zone it hurts, it's uncomfortable, it's full of uncertainty, anxiety & self-doubt. That's why it's called a 'Comfort Zone' because it's very comfortable! Anything outside of that ISN'T comfortable, but it's an opportunity to heal things inside of you that are ready to be healed.
Whenever you feel a wave of self-doubt come over you, take a minute to breathe and reflect just how far you have already come. Show gratitude for what you have in your life right now so you can make way for more graitude to flow freely to you.
