How many times have you started a sentence with, “I am just…?” I do it all of the time with statements like:

  • I am just a part-time employee… I am not contributing as much as someone who works full-time.
  • I am just someone who writes on a blog occasionally… I am not a writer.
  • I just workout 2-3 times a week… I am not an athlete.

I think I might be holding myself back because I am just afraid of failing.

How are you limiting yourself by starting your sentences with “just”? What if we started our sentences with I am just amazing, I am just accomplishing great things?

I am going to try to change my perspective on ‘just’ to include living in the present. I am just here, right here, right now, in this moment. I am just so grateful.
