    66 // Affirmations to Release Self Doubt & Start Feeling More Confident

    66 // Affirmations to Release Self Doubt & Start Feeling More Confident

    Alright, I know how many of you love affirmations. In creating content surrounding self-confidence and self-compassion, I created these affirmations for you as you start doing this work. Releasing unrealistic expectations of ourselves, showing up more authentically, and freeing ourselves from self-doubt takes learning, practice, and persistence. I want these affirmations to support you and keep you encouraged when you need some encouragement. You’ve so got this.

    XO,

    Dev

    65 // Practical Ways to Start Embracing Self Doubt & Taking Confident Action in Your Life

    In today’s episode, I’m going to talk to you about befriending & embracing self doubt along with starting to release unhealthy expectations we have for ourselves. So much discontentment, self doubt and self-criticism comes from us holding ourselves to these ridiculous bars (that we didn’t even create) (that we may not even want). Let’s take some time to refocus on what really matters to you along with creating new, more helpful self expectations. Ready for more joy and contentment?! Lesssgoooo love!

Inspirational

Devoney is such a light in this world. Her podcast is so inspiring and motivating. When I listen to episodes, I often find myself jotting down notes of phrases or ideas that have impacted me or that I want to explore further on my own. She always seems to know exactly what I need to hear. These episodes have helped me personally and professionally. Thank you Devoney for your wisdom, guidance and positive energy. 💜
