“Our doubts are traitors, and make us loose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”
~ William Shakespeare
Have you ever doubted yourself? I mean the kind of doubt that after you know you have prepared well, still creeps in and makes you feel paralyzed? No....just me...cool...cool, cool!
It’s like when I go to write many of these Monday Motivation posts - to say I don’t doubt the things I write, “is it good enough?” “Does it even make sense?” “Is it something even one person would care to read?” ( I mean...other than my Dad😬😉). To be brutally honest, there have been moments where I think “maybe I should just not even try.” Then, I stop...it’s actually funny because a few months ago around Christmas I was really having those traitorous doubtful thoughts....We had/have such lofty plans for this year and I was like...”but....are they even good plans?” “God are they your plans?” Just when I was contemplating with God and saying, “you have to show me that what we are doing with this whole blogging/social media thing is even for one person!” GUYS.... literally within a day one of our readers reached out by email and let me just say...it was something I needed to hear! Yeah I may have sat in the corner with my eyes sweating trying to not choke up when I told Jared and Jenneka about that email.
I guess what I’m getting at is this...we all have doubts...I’m sure our beautiful reader may have had a bit of uncertainty about reaching out...yet, when we can push past our fears we truly have no idea how good and valuable the outcome can be.
So, if you are reading this and have doubts know that everyone has them. Yet, I implore you...don’t let your fears and doubts hold you back from going out on a limb...because sometimes going out on a limb is just the right vantage point to see clearly the paths set before you.
Sending lots of love!
