…doubt has a way of creeping in when we are dabbling outside of our comfort zone.
The word doubt has such a negative connotation and is often associated with fear, failure, and barriers to success. Doubt sends us through a series of scenarios of why somethings just won’t work. However, once we program our minds to understand that doubt is apart of “the process”, I believe we will take more chances, and execute on the things that we always dream of doing! We doubt ourselves often, in fear of what could go wrong or our abilities to create the things we want.
Prior to starting Corporate Momming, I had been toying with an idea of writing a book. I was in the process of leaving my corporate job, and I was subconsciously angry with the things I’d dealt with. As time passed, and I began to get comfortable in my new normal, my energy shifted to balancing motherhood and running a business. Truly it’s something I’ve been learning for the last three years. So without having truly “mastered’ this balance thing, I began to doubt myself and think of all the reasons Corporate Momming couldn’t work. I’m a single mom, I’m not married, I won’t be able to relate to moms working 9-5’s, all things I told myself when creating the blog. Doubt. I did it anyway.

Fast forward, and the blog is up and running. Every other week, I ask myself where I see it going, and if it’s something I’ll be able to keep up with. Not because I don’t want to; however, doubt has a way of creeping in when we are dabbling outside of our comfort zone. So I accept that doubt comes, but it is my goal to be bigger than doubt and to continue to create and design things in my life, as I desire.
Just as doubt comes, God (or the Universe…but I’m going with God) sends reminders of why you should continue to move forward. One thing that I always tell myself, when faced with doubt is I love God, and He’s never going to play me, and everything will work out for my good. It’s really an easy fix and a way to eliminate worry, fast. I just pray for direction and start the work.
