The last few weeks I’ve been working so hard on all of the pieces that make up MamaBear. I am really excited about this. I am pretty proud of it. It has the potential to help a lot of women to see their worth and to start working on believing in themselves more and to be able to change some of the negative mindsets we all get in. It has taken a lot of time and emotional energy to do this, but it has been worth it.
Sometimes I get scared though. I start doubting myself. Wondering if I even know how to do what I need to do. Wondering if what I'm working on will turn out good enough. I get scared that no one will like it, which means that no one will like me. I know that is not realistic, but that is how my mind works.
I care so deeply about empowering others, especially women, especially you, my tribe. I care so much about helping you to see how amazing your lives could be, if you just believe in yourselves more. I was so worried about all of this that I forgot for a minute to care about myself. I forgot to take a moment and realize that I am brave and that I can do hard things. I forgot to think about what an incredible journey this life has been and that I am in an amazing place in my life now. I want to share this beautiful place in my life with you.
Through this journey I’ve been able to try so many new things, which is so scary but at the same time refreshing. Before starting MamaBear, I hadn't really done any writing since I was in school and had to do it for assignments. I actually don’t remember ever doing any writing for fun, since becoming a grown up :). I never realized how therapeutic blogging could be. It feels like writing in my diary and sharing my heart out to my world and at the same time discovering new things about myself. I guess that’s why this whole process has been scary for me. It’s all so personal. It’s all real.
So, I’m figuring out how to push myself to be braver. I’m figuring out how to push myself to try harder. I’m figuring out how to keep going even when things seem impossible. I’m pushing myself to try new things, even if that means sometimes failing. I’m pushing myself to continue to believe in myself even though the excitement will wear off.
I continue to say my MamaBear Mantra (I am strong, I am confident, I am brave) almost every day. I continue to find things to tell myself that I am proud of. I continue to reach out to friends (old and new) for sources of encouragement when I’m feeling insecure. I continue to think about all of you, reading this, at a moment that you might really need to hear what I’m saying. I am overwhelmed with appreciation and love for all of you, who are supporting me on this beautiful journey that is a big part of my life.
I love you my tribe.
I hope you will continue to join me on the journey. I would love it if you’d like to join the Mama Bear Tribe on Facebook , we will be having more personal and interactive discussions there.
helps women improve their lives, families, and relationships through cultivating self-love, wholeness, confidence
