Ever have one of those days, where you’re doubting everything that you do? Any decision you make, you think might have been the wrong one?
That no matter what you do, it’ll never be the right thing? That no matter what you say, it’ll never be the right thing to say?
To be honest, I’d be surprised if you weren’t nodding in agreement or recognition of what I’m saying so far.
The beautiful thing about being a human being is that no matter what colour or race we are, doubt is something we have in common. It’s a Universal truth among us. We doubt the people in our lives. We doubt experiences. We doubt words. We doubt actions. And most importantly, we doubt ourselves.
You know what’s really great about doubt? It only takes mere seconds to be done with it.
Doubt means you’re trying something new and you don’t know how it’s going to turn out.
Doubt means you’re afraid that you’re going to eff things up. And you might. But it doesn’t matter, because you had the courage to give it a shot.
Feel free to feel doubt. There isn’t a cure for doubt. There’s simply doubt. And on the flip side of doubt is not doubt. I’m not sure what it is. Confidence? Surety? Certainty?
Maybe being confident, sure and certain about everything you do in life, makes it just a little bit less challenging? Or exciting? Maybe when you’re actually feeling doubt, it just brings you one step closer to the life you want to have.
It could be anything. From going bungy jumping naked (which a friend of mine just did yesterday!) to taking a trip you’ve only dreamed of…or maybe the thing you doubt is whether you have what it takes to be in a relationship with another human being.
Doubt just means you’re literally, one thought away from being awesome.
Maybe it’s true what they say? Maybe certainty is a ridiculous notion? Maybe if you already know how something is going to turn out, unless it’s a souffle, it’s not as mind blowing when you do it.
Go. Be. Awesome.
