Only you can believe in yourself. No matter whose else believes in you too, you know you can do this. You wouldn’t have tried otherwise.
It’s nice to have other’s believe in your vision. It gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that what you are trying to create is meaningful.
But external validation is just that – external. It’s not the drive that keeps you writing into the early hours. It’s the bleary eyes squinting at the computer screen in the early hours before work.
It’s you, all you, and you are capable of wonderful amazing things.
So give yourself a break. Believe in yourself.
You’ve got this.
#Mondayinspiration is a chance for me to share my own motivational post it notes with the writing world at large. In the hope, maybe that someone else finds it as helpful as I do!
