It’s a thing of beauty when your words reach the covered up, hidden away spaces in others.
It’s a thing of heart-swelling proportions when your words give rise to shrieks of “me too”, creating a virtual circle where we allow our vulnerabilities to take the stage.
It’s a thing of honour, guiding others to add their doubts and fears to the proverbial fire.
My post on Dissolving Doubt last week resonated with so many of you, both here on the blog and on social media. The feedback I got was loud and clear:
We’re all in this together.
Wanna know the funny thing?
While I was editing that post, my mental tape went like this:
‘Its doubt you’re writing about. Doubt. It’s nothing ground-breaking, everybody does it.’
And that is exactly it: everybody does it.
In my own fear wrangling moment I stumbled on a common thread that runs through us all:

Thank you.:) Of course, I’d be delighted Chrissie. Link away, happy to hear it will touch those who need it.xx
Love this!! We all go through periods of doubt no matter who you are. Last week I decided to push my fear aside and change the name of my business. I have been sitting on this for almost a year now and after a beautiful chat with a life coach friend of mine, I decided to just do it! So I emailed my tribe and now I have to follow through. xx
I have seen your new commitment popping up here and there on the web (and in your newsletter). Very exciting! Looking forward to the transformation. Well done for taking the plunge beautiful. Know this: you have lots of people cheering you on.x
