Life By The Seat Of My Pants

Working though the doubt

Posted on: June 19, 2011

I shared my first blog post on my website today. The site doesn’t *officially* open until July 1, 2011, but you can check it out now ūüôā It is still a work in progress, so new content is being added often.

I struggle with inner demons on a daily basis. I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist and I am also my biggest critic. I am a great cheerleader for other people, but not  for myself and I am really feeling the sting of my inner critic today.

I am getting into the thick of creating the upcoming E-couse (which still has no name, by the way) and I am stuck. I am trying to work out the details of what goes where and coordinate the art prompts with actual information. I have so many things that I feel should be *first* that it is hard to break them apart for other weeks. I also keep thinking I don’t “know enough” to fill all of¬†the weeks with information.

I am struggling with self doubt BIG time right now and my inner voice is almost paralyzing. As a matter of fact, I am sitting here browsing Facebook and writing a blog post instead of working. I keep thinking I am in waaaaaaay over my head.

Who am *I* to TEACH these things??? I have struggled with my weight my entire life and even though I am now¬†a personal trainer I STILL have to work HARD every day¬†for every single pound. It doesn’t seem fair. Who would listen to me?!

Somewhere (so deep that I can barely hear it today) is a voice that says those are the very reasons I can help other women. I know that those women feel the exact same struggles and frustrations and can relate. In that same deep spot I also believe without a doubt that I *DO* know what I am talking about and that I *HAVE* changed my life, even though in this moment I feel like I am at square one again.

*takes a deep breath and listens *closely* to that knowledgable voice with-in*

AFFIRMATIONS for the day…

I am determined to prove my inner critic wrong.

I am confident in my knowledge and abilities.

I have changed my life and I know I can help other women do the same.

I will NEVER go back!
