Time for another installment of Take A Moment Monday, where the Chicks explore what is motivating us, making us think, or making us well, take a moment to be thankful for what we have. Today, I want to talk about confidence.
You wouldn’t necessarily notice it, but I struggle with self confidence on a regular basis. I’m a good cook, a passable writer, a decent friend. All things I’ve strived for.
I doubt these abilities because I’m competitive. I want to be a great cook. I want to be a best seller, I want to be the friend people turn to for help, advice, or even just a smile.
So daily, I have to remind myself that on my path through life I am my only roadblock. The only thing standing in my way is my belief in myself. So I look for confidence in the tiniest of things. Flowers, laughter, or a phrase I’ve written that makes me smile and finally believe maybe my writing is more than just a hobby. It’s what I’m meant to do.
I’m a work in progress for sure. And in the end, I will take what I learned, pull on the hard-won mantle of confidence and sally forth into the world, bold, determined and live these words of advice.
