I Do What I Want!
For so long I allowed myself to think that I couldn't do what I want. There were so many things that I wanted to try and I would convince myself that I wasn't capable. I put limitations on myself and I allowed the world to put me in a box too. It would range from me thinking that I didn't have the body to wear certain outfits or that I wasn't qualified for certain positions. I even allowed myself to become intimidated by success (crazy right).
I am so glad that I'm finally getting to a place where I believe in myself and my capabilities. I know longer let my insecurities drive me but instead I drive my insecurities. Yes, every now and then I look at myself in a certain dress and think to myself "should you really be wearing this?" Then I think to myself, "Ashley, do you like it?" As long as I like it then that's the only thing that matters. When I am presented with different opportunities and the voice of self-doubt creeps in I remind myself of the talented, hard-working woman I have become and to go for it. The worse that will happen is that it's not a good fit and I will go on to the next opportunity. Doing what you want is easier said than done but I'm determined to not live in regrets and that comes with being my authentic self and DOING WHAT I WANT!
