The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.
The question for this week is: Is there anything you'd like to change, or work on, about yourself this year?
I think we all have those things that we'd like to improve about ourselves. My main issue is that I'm not confident enough. When it comes to my writing, I second guess myself all the time, and sometimes it's almost crippling. I try to put myself out there as much as I can, which is why I started this blog. Even so, I think I could accomplish more if I didn't spend so much time feeling inadequate. Yes, I have a lot to learn, but if I let myself give up before I try, I'll never learn what I need to know to be successful.
I need to tell myself that I can do it. Every day I need to focus on my goals instead of the reasons why I might fail. I know that focusing on failure instead of the possibilities will only doom me to failure.
I know where my insecurities come from, and I know that I want to do everything I can to overcome them. Sure, we all have our moments of doubt, but we can't let them define us. This year, I want to do everything I can to stop my insecurities from defining me.
What would you like to work on in the coming year?
