Life is a story intertwined with love, hope, romance and the plot twist of pain and horror. Yet, we continue this journey because we are resilient in our being. You can discover your strength today, even if life feels a bit chaotic.
Taking steps in our journey that feels honest, compassionate with love and hope for a better tomorrow – except that you’ve just been delivered a blow so hard that it knocked you off your feet and you struggle to get back up. You are paralyzed by fear and pain and you wonder if you will ever be strong enough to get up and keep walking on this path of yours.
You are and you will be!
Let me share something with you. A few years ago, my relationship was rocky, hard and often painful. I wanted, no, I needed out but I had no freaking idea on how I was going to pull if. I didn’t have a job, I was a stay at home mom and my art business was far from sustainable.
The fighting, the pushed boundaries became too much to bear but I had no clue on how I was going to support my two boys and sustain a life of any kind.
I began to art journal my way and created affirmations to help boost my confidence.
I looked back at all the things I had already overcome and told myself to focus on the outcome I wanted to achieve, not the crisis I was in.
I allowed my intuition to take control and guide my decisions and found that doing things we are good at helping to boost your confidence.
8 years later, I do what I want – writing, life + business coaching, web design on occasion and making art!
I am happy and move through life with love, nurture, and compassion for anyone that enters my life. Not every day is a rainbow-spewing glitter all over, but every day is the best day that it can be.
5 ways you can discover your strength + boost your own confidence:
- Journal for 10 minutes every day. Free-write and let all your thoughts go onto the piece of paper. It is better out of your mind than in.
- Use Affirmations to remove limiting beliefs. When “I can’t” enter your mind, write and say, “I can, because_____________”. It will sink into your mind by validating yourself.
- Find your support system! Friends, Family, Counselor or Coach who will cheer you on and support you without judgment.
- Make a list of your achievements and challenges that you have overcome. Reminding yourself when you survived hard situations and note your strength in being the resilient person you are.
- Do something meaningful or fun, or both. When you are spending your time with constructive activities in your life, you will focus less on the pain and sadness.
I am all about noticing your feelings and acknowledging them (see journal note) but I don’t believe in living there. So, go out and improve your life by doing things that bring fun and meaning into your life.
