I’m challenging myself. This season for me has been all about learning about myself. It’s been tough, but so good too! God is totally redefining who I thought I was. I’m starting to understand who He’s always called me to be. It’s weird!
So, one of the big things I’m learning about myself is that I’m not a failure. Laugh all you want, but seriously I really think I am in most things. It’s so stupid and I know it is. I am so darn afraid to try anything new because I’m scared that I’ll fail. I go on this circle of wanting to do something, and then convincing myself that I shouldn’t because I’ll fail at it and it will just be a waste of time in the end. This spills over into so many areas of my life and I’m sick of it. It’s totally the enemy trying to stop me from being a confident woman who doesn’t give a crud whether I do really well on something or I completely bomb it. Who cares?! It’s time to just try new things and love it.
So… the challenge to myself is this.
I absolutely LOVE pinterest. I am constantly “pinning” things that I come across online because in my mind I’m thinking “I am going to do that” and, of course, I talk myself out of it.
I will be challenging myself to doing one pinterest idea every week. This is so that I can start being confident in my ability to start things, even if it ends up going in the trash and it looks absolutely awful. At least I tried. I’m tired of feeling like a failure.
I’ll track my progress on the blog so everyone can see what I’m up to. Not sure how long I’ll do it. Some times I may go every other week, depending on the price of the project or how difficult it is. I’m going to start out with simple ones first.
We’ll see how I do! :)
