I have been struggling. Struggling with whether I know enough, whether I’m good enough, whether I can achieve the goals I have floating around in my head. Today I’m saying STOP. I’m sitting with my insecurity and I’m letting it go.
Instead I’m reminding myself of what I can do to keep moving forward, to keep enjoying this new space I’ve created.
I will work on what is energizing and motivating for me in each moment and encourage my left-brain to let go of its need for order.
I will remember that I am not perfect so my posts don’t have to be either.
I will embrace imperfection.
I will remember that this is my space on the internet so I can write about what I want, when I want. There are no rules saying I have to follow a schedule. I can use my schedule as a guide and then add, cancel, move things around. Nothing is written in stone.
I will remember that while this blog is primarily about mindfulness and memory keeping. I am a human being with many interests, many thoughts, many ideas. I can share any or all of those things here in this space.
I will write.
I will not let my fear of failure, my fear of not knowing, my fear of imperfection, my fear of not being good enough win the day.
I am courageous and strong.
Especially if courageous and strong means putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.
Especially if courageous and strong means continuing to put my creativity and energy out into the universe in an open and honest way.
Especially if courageous and strong means sitting with and loving who I am, no matter the imperfections and no matter the mistakes, in every moment of every day.

Thank you for reading. I am grateful for you.
This post was inspired by my daughter. We are working on getting caught up on her Daisy Girl Scout petals before the end of the school year. The red petal represents being courageous and strong. My daughter can proudly remember her own times of being courageous and strong. I want to be an example of courage and strength for her too.
