I sat down to write this weekend and the words would not come.
I stared at this screen, and typed and erased; typed and erased.
Doubts started whispering…
who reads your little blog anyway?
do you really think you have something to offer?
you could stop writing now and no one would miss you.
anyone can write better than you.
Those simple sentences took away my words.
Do you know why?
I LET THEM.
I gave them power over me.
I allowed my doubts to overwhelm me.
I am thankful for this space to share my thoughts, to give encouragement, to grieve, to find peace, to laugh and to fellowship.
I have something to offer that no one else has.
I could stop writing – but I’m NOT going to.
I can list a hundred people that can write better than me, but it’s okay because I have my own voice.
If you are listening to those voices, the fear, the doubts – please let them go. Shut them out. Don’t let them take away your voice.
You are ENOUGH.
Your voice is UNIQUE.
You just have to be YOU.
What do you do when the doubts creep in?
