Am I good enough? How often have I ask myself that question! Am I a good enough mother, a good enough wife, a good enough friend, a good enough daughter, a good enough woman, a good enough human being?
I think it’s probably the most difficult question to answer. And no matter what everyone else says, you will always have doubts. You will continue to ask yourself if you are really good enough.
There’s many more areas in my life where I have asked myself if I am good enough. The list would be a very long one if I would mention every single one of them. This here will be about one area of my life, and guess what: It’s not about being a mom!
I just finished reading this post and it truly inspired me to this post as I so totally understand this kind of struggle. Just over a year ago, for months and months, I asked myself if I will be good enough to start a blog. I was wondering if I will be good enough to tell a story. I asked myself if I will be good enough to reach people. And I was wondering if my writing, especially in English, which is not my first language, will be good enough to get people to read what I wanted to say. I wondered if I will be good enough to express what I truly feel.
And I know, that I’m not the only one.
Blogging is not the world and yet it is a huge world now for me. I found an incredible community here, a community that inspires me on a daily base. That lifts me up when I don’t feel that well, that makes me think and laugh and dream. A community that makes me feel that I am good enough.
I let this thought of maybe not being good enough hold me back from starting this blog earlier. Looking back it was probably a good thing as maybe the time wouldn’t have been perfectly right earlier. One day, though, I just did it. I jumped into the cold water and A Momma’s View was born. I had so many ideas in my head. So many things I wanted to write about. And I did. I just didn’t care that much anymore about what people might think.
I did it for me.
I knew it would be good enough for me. Being out there and writing on a daily base and putting all those thoughts on paper, telling this story of mine, channeling my thoughts in a way, it all would be good enough for me. Blogging and writing on a daily base did so much good to me. I felt so much better and I didn’t mind how many people were reading. I didn’t mind if anybody would like or comment on my posts. I just had to let my fingers hit the keyboard.
The amazing thing was that very quickly I realized that people were actually reading. That they seemed to like what I was writing about and that it didn’t matter that my first language isn’t English. Suddenly I had followers and views and visits and even more inspiration from all the comments left.
It made me feel so great. I realized that I am good enough to write about my thoughts and tell my story. I realized that I am good enough to keep up and built a new circle of friends, even though they are virtual friends.
Feeling good enough as a blogger had a massive impact on my life. I suddenly gained more confidence again. I started writing on more than just my blog. I’ve learned and gained so much from this experience . For all of you out there, wondering if you are good enough, if your story is good enough to be told, let me tell you something:
It is! You are good enough! You just need to do it!
