Things I Learned in 2018

  • Practice feeling safe every day. Remind myself I am safe when I am safe.

  • Doing fun things helps energize and inspire me, and encourages restfulness.

  • Meet myself where I am & treat my emotions as facts.

  • Committing to something is really important. Sustained effort is important.

  • I’m not a live-out-loud solopreneur biz lady. I’m just not. I don’t want to make courses, I don’t want to be an expert, and I’m uncomfortable with visibility itself. I will find ways to get around this.

  • It takes time to let go of things.

  • Choose nourishment.

  • Depression is a wound I need healing for.

  • Depression is a journey to the underworld, from which I will bring back useful, transforming information.

  • Leave to-dos for tomorrow.

  • I need a myth/story to connect with, see the symbols, and re-story my life - re-story my future.

  • I am really affected by my environment and I need a nice one to feel positive and get things done. Small decorations make me feel nice.

  • Trauma Release Exercises are the best. (See how to get tremoring in this video - the exercises start at five minutes.)
