Today one of my daughters told me off. I was moaning about how nervous I was for this weekends Brit mums live when she told me straight.
“mom if you don’t believe in yourself how do you expect others too.”
Bang, right in my face!
How true , here I am harping on about my nerves probably making you all think I’m some kind of sloppy wimp.
When the fact is that’s not true.
Ok I’m not an overly outgoing person but I can and do generally chat to anyone, anywhere.
I have spoken in public numerous times on different subjects and do actually really enjoy it.
I also liaise with professionals from all walks of life on a weekly if not daily basis.
I am the co-founder of a charity Livvy’s Smile which is growing fantastically and have hosted and organised numerous events.
I’m also a writer both here and in other places including the Compassion UK Blog and fostering publications.
I’m also a mom to four incredible girls and a foster mom to one young man.
And to top it all off I’m also in the Brilliance in Blogging Inspire category final with Brit Mums, how about that.
So come on girl pull yourself together.
One gigantic kick up the bum coming my way.
So from now on I’m stepping forward with a new attitude.
I’m going to start believing in myself more.
And in the words of Babe Ruth
Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back. – Babe Ruth
