Your video feels like a piece of the “How, the fuck, do you get yourself to do the scary things?” that is missing from my little word vomit. Is that right?

And I’m working on that part. I wish I could write a piece that goes further and says, “Do the scary things, friends! This is HOW! Steps 1, 2, 3….”

I haven’t figured that part out yet as a formula.

For me, it’s been a matter of a.) putting one foot in front of the other and just fucking do it, and b.) reminding myself that what I have been doing isn’t working (which I don’t think is much help to other people).

If it were that easy to just do the things that scared us, we wouldn’t need to write articles about it.

Realizing that doing the scary things is the way to get closer to what you want is half the battle.

Understanding how that decision process works helps, too…I’d never thought about that part.

Thanks for sharing and making me a video. (I’ll admit I’m a little flattered.)

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
