I am finding myself in exactly this spot lately-round and round the revolving door of self-doubt. I get bursts of “I got this” and I say it’s definitely gonna work and I stretch and sign up and lay down the the cash or the commitment only to find myself saying “shit this is NOT going anywhere, I must have been crazy to think it could work”. And limp around feeling put upon, or distract myself with a new project. I’ve had this mantra which I use in my weekly yoga class “I will not abandon myself”. It has kept me going past some pretty discouraged places.
I like your reminder that this means “you are onto something important”. Thanks.
