Today I’m at She Roars, a conference for Princeton alumna. Events like these–like college reunions–can bring up my old achievement-based insecurities: Have I accomplished enough? Am I successful enough? How do I “measure up”?
Our egos may worry about whether we’’ll fail or what someone else thinks of us. Our egos may trap us in a stew of “I’m not good enough” or a judgmental cloud of “I’m better than s/he is.”
But, focusing on those things keeps us from connecting with the important questions:
What is delighting and inspiring me in this moment?
What is moving me?
Who am I connecting with?
What is my divine wisdom telling me?
When fear comes up, give yourself love. Then stay connected to the Real You, and be yourself in the world.
