Choose Wonder Over Worry

Because showing up to create anything is an ebb and a flow. A dance. Periods of immense flow are followed by periods of deep questioning. And experimenting. And refining. And editing. And doubting. And clarifying. And internal excavating. All of which is eventually followed again by clarity and flow. What matters is that we continue to show up - whether or not we’re afraid, whether or not we think we’re capable, whether or not we know what’s coming next, and whether or not we have a voice telling us “this is too hard and too intense and oh my god, did I make the right decision?” When we choose to pursue that which we desire, there are so many unknowns, and those uncertainties can be terrifying and overwhelming…

But the process of creation asks something of us first: to get comfortable not knowing what will happen and when. Because creation is messy. It’s raw. It’s foggy. It’s vulnerable…

This is why we must ask ourselves whenever we choose to do something that we feel is worthwhile: Am I willing to get uncomfortable in the pursuit of what is mightily important to me? Because when we are, we will persevere to uncover lessons and gifts. But only if we continue to show up, and take the next step forward and the next step forward and the next one after that. Again and again and again.
