dear inner critic

Dear inner critic,

You told me to give up.
But I won’t.

You promised that I would fail.
And I might this time.
But I promise I will keep trying.

You questioned my vision.
But thankfully, I know I was designed to do this work.

I will show up even though you’re constantly nagging me with doubt.

Because this is my passion.
This is my purpose.
This is my chance to make a small dent in the universe.

I am loved.
I am worthy.
And I will press on.

It won’t be perfect the first time. And that’s okay.
I will get better. It will get easier.

Fear won’t stop this progress.

JOURNALING PROMPT: Write a letter to your biggest stumbling block right now. It can be fear or envy or shame--anything you can think of. Name the way you feel and counterbalance it with a positive spin.
