Can you imagine what your life would be like if you had complete confidence? If you grabbed every opportunity without hesitation or second guessing yourself?
I often think about how different my life would be – and that of my 4 children – if I had just taken every opportunity and lived my life without fear.
But, for whatever reason, that never happened. I raised my children in less than ideal circumstances, some of which were out of my control. But there were probably some things I could have controlled and changed. If only I wasn’t afraid.
As parents, we try to instill as much confidence in our children as possible. We teach them to chase their dreams and work hard to achieve their goals. We walk the fine line between hovering over them and trying to protect them from failure and encouraging them to take the risks and learn and grow and having confidence that they know what they’re doing.
We all want to be perfect parents and raise our children in ideal circumstances but sometimes life has other plans and things can go horribly wrong. We feel useless and isolated and like we should be able to guide our children through difficult times. But how do we do that when we don’t have the answers ourselves?
I’m still learning from my past mistakes. I often ignored the voice inside me telling me that I was good enough and that I can do anything. Until recently, I never believed this even though I desperately wanted my children to believe it for themselves. The guilt can be overwhelming at times and it’s hard to remember that I can’t change the past. But I need to remember that guilt and fear of the past has no bearing on the future unless I allow it to. I try to remind myself to live my life like I race – without fear, with excitement and with full belief that I am capable. Sometimes it means I need to shout at myself in the mirror and tell myself that I am amazing and powerful and that there are no limits to what I can achieve.
The past is in the past and the future is bursting with opportunity. We just need the confidence to take the first step, to believe we can and to rewrite our histories.
