JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 don’t give up – 36 days to go

25 Nov


There are 36 days left of The Promise 365!

You can do this. You can do anything. That has been my mantra for nine years.

You got this.
I have said this phrase to myself many times over the years. Which brings me to tonight’s lesson. Don’t give up on yourself.

There have been times where I have been pushed to believe in myself, even when nobody else did. There was one note I received in the first week of my second year of blogging. Basically, a reader who unsubscribed from this blog wrote me a scathing note, letting me know I had let her down. She didn’t find my writing interesting anymore. She thought I had “lost appeal.”

Everyone is welcome to their own opinion. But this comment really threw me. It hurt. I had been sharing my daily life goals and had such encouragement from readers, friends and family. Her comment not only hurt, it made me second guess myself, my writing, my message, my promise. 

In many ways, it was a gift.

She gave me a tiny dose of disappointment but she couldn’t take away my commitment. Or my promise. Or my experience. These are all things that only I control, create and share with the world. 

In the grand scheme of life, this is just a tiny blip on the radar of self-doubt. But it was a big lesson in believing in myself and my goals. 

If there is anything that I can offer to you now… nine years later… it is this: Don’t give up on yourself. 

You got this.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie
