Have you ever lost faith in your work?
Faith that it’s good?
Faith that you’ll finish it?
Faith that this writing thing is even worth pursuing?
Writing can stir up so many feelings, my friends. And there are times like this, where our resistance transcends mere frustration or fatigue or “why is this taking so long?” crabbiness, and sinks into a deeper kind of doubt.
The kind that makes us feel like we no longer believe in what we’re doing.
We all go through this. We would not be human if we didn’t.
Today I want to talk about this powerful idea of our faith in our work. Where does it come from when we have it, and where does it go when we lose it?
Is there a way to get it back?
Do we even need to have faith our work to keep going? The answer might surprise you.
p.s. – This topic is in response to a real question submitted to me recently. I’m so grateful for this terrific, vulnerable, and oh-so-relatable question! If you have questions you’d like me to discuss on future livestreams, leave a comment and let me know.
