What would you do today if you weren’t feeling self conscious…? How would things be different if you weren’t worried about how you looked or came across? What would it be like if you just KNEW that your story was important and people needed to hear it? Can you imagine how it would feel if you just trusted that your friends (real or virtual) genuinely wanted to hear from you, see your face, or share in the beautiful thing you’ve just created…?
The thing is, they do!
What gets in our way is our own fear and worry.
And I’m done with it. I’m so tired of getting in my own way all the time! I want to be here, to show up and ⭐️SHINE⭐️ and I want to help you to do the same.
There are some wonderful people that I am super inspired by at the moment who are just so sparkly. And I know that the fear is still there for them. But they are showing up anyway and oh how I love them for it 😍
If you need some inspiration too, go and check out:
@sugarandsloth to meet Anita, queen of feeling the fear and doing it anyway, creator of cute and sweary things
@through_this_iris and meet Shiráz, traveller of the world, photographer extraordinaire and mental health warrior
@hedgerowyarns and meet Jane, classiest lady on my feed with the most beautiful photos and fabulous small business
And if you’d like a bit of help stepping up and shining, I’ve got a new little Facebook group called Show up and Shine.
It’s got me as your cheerleader and signposter to useful things that help with social media and other places you can show up, and it’s growing into a sweet and supportive little community. I’d love you to come and join us 🙂Tags: be brave, business cheer leading, feel the fear and do it anyway, inspiration, mental health recovery, self love, self-care, shine your light, show up and shine, small business support
