Today’s life lesson is realising that you know more that you thought you did. Most every day I’m racked with self-doubt, imposter syndrome and have little or no self confidence, this is especially true in my paid job, I know consciously that if I wasn’t able to do it I won’t have been offer the role but deep down in my belly I worry that I’m going to get “found out”.

But for a short period today, I did know what I was talking about and my words in the lecture just flowed naturally without much thought and it felt so empowering. It doesn’t happen how much others tell you that you are good at what you do or have amazing knowledge you need to believe it yourself and this is something I struggle with and I’m sure I’ve mentioned this several times before (broken record again!), however, I feel like there are glimmers of hope that this mindset cycle can be broken.

I bought a book the other day called The High 5 Habit – and it’s all about high 5-ing yourself and being your own cheerleader, this is something I’ve talked about in my other blog but I’m yet to master this habit of cheering myself on. In all the self-help books I read they all talk about finding the inner confidence and not relying on others to give you that boost, work in progress this is!! Will be a long and interesting journey, one I’m willing to take if it means me transforming my life.

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
