Hey, lovelies! I know it’s been a while since I’ve put a new blog post out there, but things have STILL been super crazy around here. Learning my new job has taken a lot more time than I thought it would + I’ve probably never had a job in which so much is mentally required of me. I tend to be a bit more on the introverted/reserved side, and my job requires constant communication with new people. I’m grateful for the challenge and the ability to help people, but man does it wear me out!
Enough about that, though, let’s talk about the real reason you’re here! If you’ve ever felt that nervous pit in your stomach over the thought of doing something new, meeting someone new, starting a different job, creating a product, etc…I’ve got a super quick truth bomb for you.
One of the things that has been weighing on my mind the most since starting my new job is “What if I’m not any good at this?”. A lot, if not most, of the days that I walk in to work, I’ve got an underlining nervous fear feeling that I just can’t shake. Every single day is a new challenge so far, and it can have me feeling a bit unsure of myself as I walk into the office.
Someone on Instagram (I wish I could remember who it was!) told me about some awesome advice she had received, and it’s helped me SO MUCH in this area. She explained to me that when she writes or creates something, she does it only for God. She doesn’t think about all the other people that may read it or criticize it, she’s creating it solely to bring glory and happiness to her Heavenly Father. All of a sudden, it doesn’t matter what other people think or how they perceive her words. It only matter what God thinks. And because He loves her unconditionally, as long as she does her best, she can’t go wrong.
I have been using this now in EVERY situation that makes me nervous. Instead of letting my anxious and fearful thoughts rule my day, I remember the real reason why I do everything I do. It’s all to bring glory to God. As long as I do my best and do it all in love, I can’t go wrong in His eyes. We are children of God, and we aren’t meant to be little worriers. We are meant to be confident, because God calls us worthy.
