Thursday Thoughts, May 9th

Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve, friends!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  We're inching our way to the weekend!  Something happened last week, in fact, one week ago today that gave me some food for thought.  I don't know about the rest of you, but I have struggled with self confidence for a number of years.  After seeing my chiropractor last week, I mentioned that I felt like I needed to redo my hair, when I heard the response, yeah because you look like a hot mess.  I was heading out after work to go to a Women's Conference, which was amazing, by the way, and as I was going by myself and meeting others there, I was a little hesitant.  I had a migraine the night before and didn't make it to church, so in the back of my mind, I was thinking about the possibility of being judged or not being worthy or enough.  Do any of you struggle with self doubt and self confidence too?  No?  Just me?  Fear is often part of my vocabulary.  Fear of change being a big one for me.  I struggle with that more than I would like to admit.  I feel "less than" in several areas of my life.  I'm still working on them and on myself, but sometimes it's so easy for me to fall back into that "not good enough" or "not worthy" mentality when that is definitely not where God wants me to be.  I am glad that I pushed through and went to service on Thursday night and didn't let that comment and my feelings run away with me because I was so blessed by the service on Thursday and hearing the Word that was shared with each of the ladies present.  It is always such a great time of fellowship and this year was no different.  The self doubt is definitely one of those not great things that I feel I need to work on about myself.  Hope you have a great one! 


  1. When I feel in control, when I am eating according to my plan, and working out, I have a lot of confidence. When I am struggling, like I am now, it affects how I feel about everything about myself! I have zero confidence right now and would really like to get it back. I'm glad you didn't let that comment or your lack of confidence that evening stop you from enjoying the conference.

  2. I think all of us have moments of self-doubt. I am sharing here - mostly I feel like others have more friends or more "going on" in their lives than I do. I too have to work on thinking positive thoughts.
