You know that voice…
That whiny, niggly little voice. The voice that permeates your brain, gets under your skin and it won’t let up….
No I’m not talking about kids. Although their voice makes my eyes twitch sometimes too.
I’m talking about the internal voice of self doubt.
Its a persistent little bastard.
It comes on with no warning and it niggles at the back of my thoughts. Floating around in my brain, it makes me feel like I’m not worthy of following my dreams.
It whispers seductively to me.
“You can’t do this…. What makes you think you can do this?”
“You’re just a mum.”
“Everybody thinks you’re crazy.”
“Nobody cares about your dreams. They’re laughing about your crazy schemes. ”
“YOU’RE JUST A MUM, accept it! Get a crappy job and help pay the bills that never seem to end”
I’ve got big plans on the horizon!
I can’t accept that I’m JUST A MUM and I should GET A REAL JOB!
I don’t accept that I can’t make this happen! Yes it will be hard work, but I’m not afraid of hard work, I’m a mum of 4.
I’ve given up so many times before. I can’t continue to listen to that niggly little voice that tells me to just have a glass of wine and relax. It’s a nice little dream, isn’t it? Maybe someone else will do it?
Instead I’m going to have a glass of wine and think about how I CAN DO IT!
I’m going to shout louder than that f*cking relentless little voice!
I do deserve to follow my dreams!
My family deserves it. I’m going to teach my kids that they can work hard and do anything they set their minds to. I’m going to teach them they don’t have to listen to that poxy little voice either!
So F YOU self-doubt!
I’m following my dreams! I’m determined to make my little ‘Mumpire’! (Empire, but you know, I’m a mum). You’ve only got one life after all… I am determined to make it work for me!
It’s time to fly!
Stay awesome 🙂
