I find myself endlessly fascinated by how this creature we know as “human” operates. Lately, I’ve been especially aware of its innate resistance to things or actions it perceives as demanding something of it. This is pretty nuts, considering that anything worthwhile is going to have those initial moments that are nothing but.
I mention this resistance thing because I hope in recognizing that it is a weirdly unavoidable human reaction, we can afford it a lesser place of importance.
So that, for example, we know ahead of time we will be feeling like we simply can’t, when we absolutely can do the new and unknown. Then when the “Oh no I can’t!” shows up right on schedule, we let that extra bit of energy and focus it gives carry us right into the doing.
Because we can!
