Self esteem, confidence, belief, resilience. Just words right? If only.
As the terrible 90’s rock band Extreme would say ‘They’re more than words’. They’re thoughts, things you can think define you, impossible mountains to climb, un swimmable rivers to cross and a place you think you might never reach.
But you can.
And you will.
One small step at a time.
I had a bank holiday weekend of confidence. Some my confidence. Some my sons.
First my 9 year old went down a water slide he’d never been down before. I could see he was worried going up the steps, it took a lot of encouraging to get him up them. But he did it and he loved it.
He made me super proud. He was proud of himself. Up to the top of the slide. One step at a time.
I had a safety harness and was attached to a line. It helped, but I still had to take the steps.
If the steps seem too scary can you get a safety harness, is it a friend, a professional, medication, meditation, exercise or something else. There are lots of safety harnesses out there.
Take care, take a step
