That little voice in my head is trying to fuck everything up again.
I go in these waves of spending days feeling like I am on fire and I'm going to heal the hearts of the whole entire world....
...and then Little Me starts creeping in, trying to put me back in my place. Then I spend a few days feeling defeated or uninspired.
If you've done either of the Journaling Projects, you're probably familiar with your Little Me. The little voice in your head that tells you you're not good enough or qualified enough or experienced enough, or no one will like your stuff or whatever else....
But just because you know where the dragon lives, doesn't mean you've slayed it.
I spend, what I would consider, an above-average amount of time observing my mind, my thoughts and my emotions. However, the next step in growth is acting in spite of whatever "Little Me" is telling you.
So, right now I am creating another journaling project called the 7-Day Emotional Healing Journaling Project. I am creating a 7-week interactive online coaching program to help people overcome their past, step into their power and create their dream life through manifestation and positive thinking. I am in the midst of building an online course program and studying to be an Applied Positive Psychology Coach. AND! I'm writing a book outline.
Yesterday, I felt amazing about all the things I was creating. I felt confident that people are starting to trust me and they are opening up to me and they will buy my stuff and support me on my journey to reach more people.
Today however, Little Me says naaahhhh.
"You're not qualified to do this."
"People can download journal prompts off the internet."
"YouTube has millions of beginner yoga classes for free."
"People are not going to pay for a coaching program."
"You literally have no idea how to write a book."
Anyway, I guess the reason I am sharing this is so that I can act in spite of what my scared little me is telling me. I am not my thoughts and I know I have goodness and love to give to this world.
So, if you're like me, a human, I just want to encourage you to keep going. Keep creating. Keep putting your heart out there.
Even and especially when you're terrified.
The world needs you.
And it needs me, too.
