Thinking “I’m not going to make it”…then realizing you already have…

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and think, “I’m not going to make it”, but you laugh inside – remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.”  – Charles Bukowski

How often I’ve woken up thinking that exact thing…thinking “I’m not going to make it”…completely overlooking the fact that I have already been through incredibly hard things in my life before this, and forgetting the fact that somehow, someway, I have made it through every one of the hard times and I’ve overcome every one of the hard things in order to get to where I am here today.

I think all of us have those moments of doubt that creep in and overcome us momentarily. But when those moments of doubt come – if we can remind ourselves of all the difficult things we have been through in the past that we’ve overcome  we can remember that we’ve made it this far and we ARE going to make it through our current trial as well.

Don’t forget that “So far you have survived 100 percent of your worst days. You’re doing great.”

What makes us unstoppable isn’t the fact that we’ve never had doubts, it’s the fact that when those doubts come we don’t allow them stop us. We choose to continue forward in spite of our doubts. And that makes us AWESOME!

So the next time you have a moment of doubt just laugh inside and remember, “You’ve got this!” and you are AWESOME!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
