Broken – I doubt before I believe

peace joy happiness

In the past I used to doubt before I could believe.

Most of the time it wasn’t a problem because I bring myself back to the moment and remind myself that belief is essential for anything to succeed. So in a way I guess I can say my negative habit of doubt helped me to kick into my more positive focus on belief, until my focus on belief became stronger.

Still, I used to wonder, if I wasn’t broken maybe things might happen faster.

Would I be a full-time writer earning an income using my craft? Could I have achieved more? Should I have made more of an effort to abandon what people expected of me and followed my heart.

Still, woulda, coulda, shoulda and what ifs or maybes never really helped anyone so I focus on where I am now, knowing that many before me started late and succeeded.

Somedays as I write I still feel broken, or maybe chipped, and I do my best to fill that in and keep focused on belief. Its an ongoing saga for me.
