She's baaaack! @kat.berg is keeping it real on today's #selfcare post. 💚
Hello Warriors! It’s been a little bit since my last #SelfCareSunday post, but I’m so happy to be on the blog again today. In the time between leaving Columbus and moving for the summer, I have learned so much about myself. I’ve been able to deeply reflect on how I handle #stress, who I lean on, how I make time for what really matters, and how to navigate the unknown. This has been such a period of growth in my life as I step into adulthood, and I am doing my best to welcome both the progress and the inevitable growing pains.
When you’ve planning and prepping to achieve a huge goal, something funny happens in the moment right before all those thoughts in your head become reality. Even when you’ve spent countless hours gearing yourself up for an opportunity, I find that there is a critical point in which all the excitement fades into the background. If you’re anything like me, right when you’re about to take the final step into a new space, a raw sense of insecurity takes hold. Its dominance tends to be fleeting. Excitement certainly doesn’t disappear. Gratitude absolutely does remain. But the whispered question of “Am I good enough?” still creeps in. I’m currently in that funny in-between moment. There’s nothing else to plan. All I can do is show up. To be honest, I struggle to be patient. I struggle to wait. So instead of doing nothing, I’ve spent this brief pause investing in my mindset. As corny as it might sound, I’ve spent this time building up my defenses against the #impostersyndrome I anticipate experiencing.
Imposter syndrome is a powerful force that can threaten our peace, joy, and self-love. If you aren’t familiar with imposter syndrome, my best understanding of it is that you have thought patterns of doubt and insecurity despite your capabilities and accomplishments. In short, you are good enough, but are constantly worried that people will find out that you’re not...Link in bio to read more!

Reality vs Dream. My garden space vs one from my Pinterest board. I grow A LOT of food in this space. Don’t let the model of “perfection” stop you from starting. In the yard, in your home, in your life. You don’t need the prettiest space to grow and create. Throw some stuff together and just get started and start learning! That zucchini’s gonna grow in the dirt regardless. That crow pose is gonna happen in the messy living room. You can flourish almost anywhere. Just take the steps to make it possible. Love you! The normal not Pinterest perfect you!

Late Night Thoughts:
The struggle is knowing if you're good enough.
It's not about being good enough at your job because you know you are;
Or being good enough as a human being cause you survived so far... so you're good!
It's about being good enough to achieve your dreams and getting all that you want, need, and more!
It's about the acceptance of everything and knowing you deserve it all;
And yet knowing that you might change your mind at any moment and just let it all go for something that is even scarier and makes you wonder once more if you are good enough.
So maybe life is all about proving to yourself that you actually are good enough for every single thing that you want and set your mind to!
It's all about the wondering and the moments right before you realize your full potential at a certain goal or dream.
Who knows 🤷♀️
