It’s so easy to second guess ourselves, or think we aren’t good enough to accomplish something. But these thoughts do not serve us, they deter us from striving to reach our goals, they hold us back from becoming something better.
I’m currently working on a couple of projects that have really tested me, and have shown me how important it is to have faith in ourselves. It took me 26 years to believe that I was actually capable of achieving great things. We truly are meant to have an amazing life but that will never happen unless we become vulnerable, and allow ourselves to truly be who we are at our core.
I always wanted to have a blog where I could share parts of my life, my journey, my travels etc. and inspire others. But it took me a year to actually launch it… An entire year of questioning and doubting myself. I realize now that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of you. YOU have to love yourself and believe in yourself, and when you do, amazing things start to happen.
Last week was a big week for Irek and I. We’ve been reflecting a lot, and feeling super grateful for all of the things that have happened the past few years that have brought us to where we are today. Sometimes things look easy on the outside, but we’ve gone through our ups and downs, and I personally have dealt with a lot of self-doubt. But through yoga, meditation, and self-education, I’ve grown and moved past that. I know that a failure is only a failure if you let it be. Mistakes and hardships are meant to teach us to be better and help us to grow.
Life is always a learning process, there is always room to improve, and always ways to become better. I feel that yoga is such a strong teacher in the sense that one day your practice can be amazing, and your body super open. And other days it’s the complete opposite. But you practice anyway. You push through it because you know there will be brighter days.
I hope everyone finds time to work on themselves. Whether it be through reading more books, exercising more, meditating etc. Don’t get so caught up in daily life that you forget to breathe, to reflect on life, and yourself.
Just know that you’re capable! Have faith in yourself and love yourself no matter what. We’re all different and unique and that’s what makes us special, but we are also all connected to something greater.
Sending lots of love to everyone on this beautiful Monday morning.
