Long but Life Changing

June 19th, 2019 at 08:07 am

Now that I have more free time I have been listening to podcasts and reading about women who have developed the confidence and skills to go past their "safe" zone. I want to go past my "safe" zone. I admit that I sabotage myself when things get uncomfortable or challenging. I know I haven't had the confidence to accept the feelings and push through anyway. I haven't had the confidence to speak up for myself and to disagree with someone effectively. I've accepted safe and easy, and my budget shows it.

I've always been impressed by a woman who intelligently speaks her mind and pushes forward past the "safe" point, because that doesn't come easy to me. I imagine how empowering it will feel for me to learn those skills.

I'm in my early 40's now and have stopped caring quite so much if I am doing what I am "supposed" to be doing. I have to believe that it is not too late to develop the skills and confidence I need to see what I can do with this life. This goes beyond furthering a career. Being a role model to my girls, speaking up for what is right, bringing all that I can to this world. Basically yes, living to my potential. It may be really uncomfortable for me at first, but the benefits can be immeasurable. Now comes the action part, though.
