Do You Ever Doubt Your Doubts?

by Nicole Mangina on February 9, 2011

I love this question!

It falls into the awesome category of: “things that make you go hmmmm”

When was the last time that you doubted your doubts?

Do you even know if they are valid?

A doubt is just a thought.  There isn’t anything to back it up. So why not doubt your doubts and paint a new picture?

Doubts are just fears and fear is the absence of love so what if you could love yourself through the situation rather than doubting the possibility?

Remember when you learned to ride a bike?  Did you ever doubt that you could do it?  No.  You took the bumps and bruises along the way as a right of passage and kept at it until you were sailing down the street on two wheels.  As children we move toward our goals with a beautiful sense of certainty that we will get there.  We know that there will be bumps and bruises along the way, but that is just a part of the process.

Some where between childhood and adulthood something changes.  We starts to doubt ourselves.  The bumps along the way turn into insurmountable hurdles and we give up before we even begin.

Starting today, doubt your doubts and do it anyway.  Before you know it, you will be sailing down the street with the wind in your hair and a sense of accomplishment that has you beaming from ear to ear.

Beautifully said, Nicole. Why not paint a new picture, indeed?!
