Happy Self Love Saturday! I had a big “ah-ha” moment the other day while I was on a shoot and it has inspired todays video. I was doing what I love – working on set, talking to interesting people and being an artist and out of nowhere crept in a little moment of self doubt. I don’t know why, I don’t know how but this little nasty voice started telling me I wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t funny enough, they aren’t impressed with me and blah blah blah! I just laughed, honestly, I was shocked. 1. That I was finally in a place of consciousness that I could hear this voice 2. That I understood what was happening and aware enough to stop it. And I did. I took a moment of pause and then in silence I spent the next few minutes in gratitude, going over everything good that was happening around me instead of worrying and thinking about anything bad. It helped, the little doubt voice stopped and my smile came back, and my confidence returned.
But I couldn’t help but ask one question, WHY? Why did I have this little Doubt voice living in my head? Where did it come from? Did something happen to me as kid? Why did I tell myself this tragic story about who I am in times when I needed to be my best? But most importantly HOW Do I unlearn this terrible habit? I haven’t figured that out yet, but I’m going to try as much as I can until something sticks. Check out the video below inspired by “Little Miss Doubt”.
