What resonated in this week's edition? The Climate work. And mortality. Time dribbling through my fingers.

Thank you. The mortality lesson was a hard one to learn, but a powerful one to carry through. It reminded me of your comment when we talks about not being able to get anyone to listen. Turns out I can't even listen to myself

"Not knowing has eaten away at the self-image I have of myself. I was always the person who knew how to make things work. If I didn’t know, I knew how to get other people to find a way. But here I am, feeling completely alone, stuck, and scared of what that means about me. In the classic fight, flight, or freeze response, I froze."

powerful stuff here! Fear definitely can freeze one in one's place

"I froze because it was easier to do nothing than face my fears of being a failure. It bled over into a bunch of other areas of my life too, including my writing and drawing. Working with my coach, I finally let my subconscious admit that I was scared of not being a massive success."

Isn't it interesting how a little mental trick can turn your wold upside down and unstuck you?

haha, what I didn't tell is the 30 minutes beforehand of "I'm not scared of things, I just don't know what to do and I need help thinking more." So yeah...
