Self-doubt is one of the main struggles for myself and a lot of #creativepreneurs . #Reflection is an important piece to the puzzle of overcoming self-doubt. When we allow ourselves time to reflect... whether it's listening to inspiring music, reading a motivational book or article, writing, praying, meditating, or thinking, we are giving ourselves not just a chance to grow but also instilling confidence within ourselves by increasing our awareness and showing us reasons to be grateful.
For me, it's writing. I try to carve out at least 3 days a week to sit down and actually write out my prayers. Spilling all of my thoughts onto the page, acknowledging fears and things that i'm thankful for really allows me to clear my mind AND it shows me what's actually going on inside my head.
Life is busy. Too busy. There is barely a moment in the day for us to stop and think. And when those moments do happen, the temptation of filling it with a very deserved Netflix binge, necessary editing spree (#photographerproblems ), or that mindless social media scroll is REAL. Therefore, we have to be intentional about creating time for reflection.
When we don't... we will struggle. - 3 hours ago
