This week I made new friends! I met up with local people talking the Living Brave Semester. It was great to connect with these people I most likely would have never met any other way! I look forward to getting together again…and that reminds me that I need to make time to catch up! I’m super behind right now. Ah life!
My monthly email went out this week. If you’d like to get on my list, you can sign up here!
Trusting myself. This is an area I struggle with. I wonder if I’m making the right decisions. I literally second guess myself all the time. I constantly doubt that I really know what I want. I’m convinced anything I think I want isn’t actually what I want. I will think something will make me happy but then I question that maybe I just think it will make me happy and it will turn out that it doesn’t. When I tell others what I want they have all their reasons why they don’t like the same thing and somehow I let it change my mind. I’m also afraid to fail and make mistakes. It’s a lethal combination. I talk myself out of the risk and back into my comfort zone. I let fear win. I stay stuck & miserable – not because I didn’t do that one thing – but because I let everyone’s opinions and voices be louder than my own. I allow the doubt of others to match the doubt I already have. It becomes amplified louder than any curiosity I started with. But I keep seeking for that person who will amplify my curiosity. All I find are more people to amplify the doubt. Maybe that’s the point – to amplify it myself. Make it louder for and by myself. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to do it on my own.
Leap and the net will be provided.
If I had confidence in myself and what I wanted, others would believe me. It’s a cycle. I know I need to believe in me and others will but I need someone to believe in me first. Why am I not good enough for me?

• I’ve had a lot of changes to my routine this week. I need to get back on track yet be flexible and open to what the change brings. The struggle is real!

• My goal this week is to catch up on sleep. Think that will actually happen?
• I went back to spinning this week – and didn’t die! Yay!
