#248 / Do what you've been avoiding.

“There’s nothing you can’t handle. Because any response to a situation is “handling it”. All we need to be concerned about is where our method of “handling it” sits on the scale of tip-top to catastrophic and then go from there. ”

What are you trying not to do?

What’s the one conversation you just don’t want to have?

What are you avoiding?

If I gave you my list it would either depress or impress you, depending on how emotionally invested you were in my personal journey. But I’m trying to change that this week. I’m working on changing that. I’ve written out a list of the things that I hate doing each week, and I’m trying to create a process for my Monday, where I simply dedicate myself to cutting through it.

It’s worth identifying the bits and pieces that you’re avoiding. Make a plan to tackle them head on. If you can clear the clutter and reduce that mental load, every other task on your list will become easier.

All my love,

Life doesn't all have to be existential dread and news feeds. There's an equal amount of worthwhile living to be found in eating French Fries. Anyone who tells you otherwise just wants you to be as miserable and scared as they are.

And they don't get to share your Fries.


Wash your hair. Condition your hair. Stop putting it off because nobody else is going to see it. You're going to see it. And you're going to feel it. And I'm not going to let you get away with it. You deserve to feel good for your own sake.
