Believing that you Can Do this

Is there anything more terrifying than taking that leap of faith into the unknown? Should I start a business? Should I leave a relationship? Should I go travelling?

Well, today I wanted to talk about the reality behind that, what makes it so difficult and why you should pursue what you put your mind to.

I’ve often been blind sighted about my ability to be creative. What I’m learning is that I am talented, I just need to believe in myself. My perfectionism is taking a back seat, mostly, and I’m replacing it with self belief.

Still, every now and again it’s normal to hit a bump in the road. For me it came in the form of a close ‘friend’ who decided to remind me the other day that I am exceptionally flawed. I was kind of stunned. I was just letting her know how much I’m enjoying blogging and then Bam!

I have a post on toxic friends if you feel like you have someone similar to this in your life and would like to read it, you can here:

You need to stop seeing that friend, Stop self doubting

It’s funny how these things always happen when you’re on top of the world. I should take it as a compliment really. Jealousy comes in many forms. She was essentially trying to diminish my sense of self worth because I am believing in myself and my capabilities. I shouldn’t have let it hurt me, but it did.

It was a super low blow. It’s taken me a few days to get my head around it to be bluntly honest, so again I apologise for not writing to you all everyday.

Needless to say, we’re no longer friends.

I am a sensitive soul that cares about the well being of human beings. That’s not a bad thing but sometimes I need a bit longer to deal with things and to mourn a three year friendship. I realised hey, this person isn’t who I thought she was at all.

It all got me thinking though why do we waste so much space on things that aren’t good for us, wether it’s people, career choices or places. What is so scary about new beginnings?

Maybe it’s because we struggle with the unknown. We expect change to be bad, or there’s just a whole heap of emotions attached to someone who isn’t good for us. Heck! Maybe it’s all three.

All I wanted to say was that change isn’t bad. Change should be exciting. It might hurt or feel uncomfortable. It might be unpredictable and new but what can be more rewarding than growing. Why do we stop learning and decide to stay the same?

I don’t know about you but I don’t want to stay the same. I don’t want to be just like this in three years time. I see every day as a chance to become a better version of myself. I’m actually excited that tomorrow is another day.

Whatever your leap of faith is I hope you take it. You can do it and you’re going to be awesome.

Soph.
