It is clear from today, having not had many moments alone, that could be my problem. The alone time. The time to overthink. The time to hesitate, hyper-critique myself in to hiding and feeling helpless. The exact 4 H’s Mel Robbins refers to as the keys to understanding self-doubt.
So today, I have felt good. Alive. Out of my Fly Trap. Free.
A day joined at the hip with the Big Man, giggling on a spin bike like kids, enjoying a jovial lunch with friends and then a house full of little boys and grandparents eating steaks and chips. I am content. Self-doubt slipping out of that egg timer.
Tomorrow I know will be the same again; surrounded yet liberated from my noisy mind.
I will do well on Monday to remind myself of this; and if I feel that sand slow or the egg timer do a mid-flow flip, refer back to Mel Robbins and her 54321 key to unlocking self-belief and confidence by continuing to take those small steps forward.
