Today's post is about belief. If you don't believe in yourself or what you are doing, then what do you believe in? Belief and faith are one in the same in my opinion. If you don't belief in something, then you can't have faith in it. If I don't believe in myself, then I can't have faith in myself. It all starts with one word. Believe.
There have been times in my life where I've lost faith in who I am, but that only means that I no longer believed in myself. That shining light went dim and I couldn't see it from where I was standing in the darkness. Sure, the darkness has its perks like cookies, but it's also cold and lonely. Sooner or later, my soul craved the warm embrace of the light of belief! Once I saw it growing brighter, I found my faith again and knew that I was on the right path.
In writing, there are many things that can make you lose belief in yourself. A harsh critique, a bad review, or even a small thing like a rejection can make the light dim or fade from sight. It's not forever gone though. All you have to do is remember that what you're doing has worth, even if no one agrees with you about it. If setting pen to paper or fingers to keys makes your day joyous, then don't allow anyone to take that joy away. Keep going! Keep learning and moving forward! Find that belief in yourself and hold on to it for dear life! When you do, you will find that light shines brighter than the morning sun!
Until next time, happy reading/writing everyone!
