Clouds Lift on Self-Doubt

Seeking to grow, to know

the capabilities.

Feeling the pull

of a different reality.

Waiting to go, ready to blow

Out of this stuck place

And into my new space

Wherever that may be,

I know there, I can find me.

If you’re the kind of person (I am) who requires more time and experience to hone your inner strengths and abilities enough to break out of the consciousness clouds of self-doubt, you may struggle with habits and take longer to get where you want to go, but it’s certainly possible. Most importantly, you must take out the trash! Rid your life of ideas, mindsets and people who bring you down. Surround yourself with only those who lift you up and expose you to upward motion (as opposed to wallowing in one place complaining and blaming – and getting buzzed in the process to drown out the inner cries of your soul to do MORE with your life) to be able to truly OWN yourself and confidently conquer the world in whatever form that is for you. (My new mantra?)

As hard as it may be, release what holds you back. The beer, the wine, the smoke….where has it gotten you? Sure, it’s comforting and produces numbness, a protective layer from the outer pain and inner turmoil…but you don’t go anywhere.

The forward movement slows to a crawl.

The only thing to truly conquer is self-doubt.

Where is me? All over the place. Yet so much good is happening at once. I’m learning to appreciate what I have right now, focusing on what IS rather than what IS NOT.

With loss comes gain, and gain comes loss, but the changes are inevitable and allow for true growth.

The clouds of my self doubt are lifting as I reclaim my passions. Passions are meant to be pursued. I’m listening to that inner voice telling me to go forward, and I put one foot in front of the other.

Fuel Me Forward

Working on myself. The self.

Self worth, self acceptance, self empowerment.

Getting my bearings as I take control of myself, my habits and release the things that no longer work for me. It’s difficult to look at everything, your life, and accept things you thought you would have accomplished by now are not done yet – to realize how you’ve held yourself back and to embrace yourself to release your fears – it’s a big one.

I realize I’ve talked most of my life. Talked about what I am, what I was going to do, the ultimate goals, an open book to all. Of course I took action, a lot of action, but it was always leading to the NEXT thing and I was happy to promote what I’d be doing “next.” But of course, when you don’t do the NEXT things as expected, perceptions received by others are unwelcome and can penetrate the barrier.

Talk, talk, talk, talk. Bitter pill to swallow when you realize you’ve talked more, done less than you expected for your talk.

Yet in the same breath it’s empowering to know you can reclaim yourself. Expression is powerful but action is the fuel for expression. I breathe life BACK into myself and look to my inner strength to guide me.

FUEL ME FORWARD

Powerful life, winds of courage, breathe into my heart

Inspiration seized, thoughts into action

I feel your fire!

Fuel me forward, I forge ahead regardless of the weather

This time, nothing can stop me, even if slowed down, forward I tread.

Slowly isn’t stopped. Action is movement.

Fuel me forward, I tread my path, I live.
