was having a conversation this morning with a male friend and I mentioned some
apprehensions I was having about the half marathon this Sunday and he said if I
had the drive to sign up for a half then I should be good to go.
got me thinking about how different men and women are.
thing the founder of Nike was a man. If not their slogan wouldn't be 'Just Do
It' it would be;
I Do It?'
'Can I Do It?'
I really want to do it?'
did it so I can do it too'
if I get lucky I can do it'
get my point.
me if I am wrong but why does it seem women (or maybe this is just me) are
plagued with self-doubt? Couple that with my amazing ability to over-think and
over-analyze everything and it is damn near crippling.
want to ‘Just Do It’
don’t want to think about every misstep I could have possibly taken these last
10 weeks. I don’t want to doubt my ability. I don’t want to second guess my
just want to wake up Sunday morning and just freaking do it.
I would really like to know what is preventing me from doing just that. I mean
I know I will. I will get up and run that half marathon. But I want to know
what I need to do/change in order to stop questioning my actions and start believing
in myself 100% of the time.
more proof do I need to give myself that I can do it; whatever IT is? How many
more goals do I have to pass or successes do I need to achieve before I truly
start believing this?
