JUST KEEP GOING….. that’s what I am doing!
Impostor syndrome, self-doubt, dreams that are big can slam on the brakes and cause me to slow down, even worse, stop. Sometimes this happens once in a day, sometimes several times. For a long time, I let them get the best of me, today I am fighting my way through them, because I found something that is MORE IMPORTANT. I by no means have it perfect, but this is how I am rolling with it today, when those thoughts come knocking!
ALT – My little "alternate" way to deal with these thoughts:
ACKNOWLEDGE THEM! Sometimes I literally tell myself “I hear you, not ready to deal with you, so you can just sit on this notebook and I’ll come back to you when I am ready.” Then I have a notebook I keep on shelf and I write it in the notebook (this helps get it out of my head.)
LEAVE it! When I have written it down in the notebook, I leave it there! This action is about knowing where it is and having the ability to come back to it, in MY time. It gets it out of my head so I can move on.
TAKE ACTION! Small action, big action, doesn’t matter…. Some action is all that matters. Sometimes these thoughts deflate me, so I make myself do at least one (even if it’s tiny action) these seems to help me combat the deflation blues and get back on the bike so to speak. It maybe something mundane like unsubscribe to 10 emails that I’ve been needing to delete, a quick walk or making a coffee with espresso not instant (I DO LOVE AMAZING COFFEE!) ☕☕☕☕
Give the ALT (Alternate) a try!
Feel free to get in touch, let me know if it works for you!
Gotta run off to deal with my amazing, crazy, chaotic family,
P.S. A little dose of hope:
“If the challenge we face doesn’t scare us, then it’s probably not that important.”
