I was reading a magazine at the doctors today and came across an article where the woman had entered herself in a contest because she asked herself, “why not me?” It got me thinking about how I always tend to doubt myself when it comes to putting myself out there. I ask, what makes me/my style/my thoughts special enough? Can I compete with all the other blogs out there that are so amazing? Why me?
I know I love doing this. It makes me happy and gives me a purpose that is solely for me and not about my children or home life. I don’t work right now and I love feeling like I am a part of something. But I often have doubts about myself and whether I am good enough. Noteworthy enough.
Most of the time I do think I am. Good enough, that is. I have built a solid foundation of supporters that like what I am putting out there. That makes me feel good. I want to put myself out there and help people, whether it be through style, mom life or just simply sharing my story.
I will try to think more along the lines of why NOT me from now on. Because simply, why NOT do something I enjoy?
