do you doubt yourself; your abilities

When I write it is always about something that is on my mind. Something that is just sitting there, so I don't take too much time sitting here writing when I need to be working on my businesses, or rockin' the nighttime routine. {I have less than ten minutes to rock this blog post, Banana's in Pyjamas is on}. Today I have only one thing on my mind; running.

In 4 weeks I leave for USA to run a half marathon. The race is on two days before I come home, so the tail end of my trip. This is the first time I have ever competed, and I have a trainer to help me. Yes I am serious. I really believe that I can do this. {Well, honestly today I have had doubt, and I think for me to write, 'I believe I can do this,' will help me get rid of this self doubt}.

Do you believe in yourself. And when you have self doubt, how do you pump yourself up again. Do you look for the support of others around you. Do you have any tips?

I personally believe that you do need to believe in yourself in order for things to happen. People can tell you that you rock until they are blue in the face, but it is you that needs to take those steps to make it happen.

All I can do is put that head up, chest out, run with that heart of mine, and cross that line, after running my own race; mind games.

{My little people believe in me, and I will take that with me}.


  1. I tend to tell myself I can do it till I believe it! I'm running a half marathon in Chicago in four weeks-I'm excited to. I definitely go through self doubt sometimes, but I get rid of that feeling by training more. Hope you have a great time!!

  2. You CAN do it!!

    How awesome. I have always liked the idea of being a 'runner'. Mind you I don't think I could make it to the end of my street let alone around the block! Do you run on the days the little ones are at school/ care? Finding time on my own is probably the first thing I need to do, then I'll give the couch to 5k thing a go...

    All the best in the US!
