Head back into your shell

We all get those days, when overwhelm about the future, and often the ‘Tsunami’ of tasks, that we have put on our own ‘do list’, simply scares us into inaction.

We feel the urge to give up.

We feel like the only solution, after the initial bravery of stepping out into the ‘spotlight’, is to run back into the safety of our ‘shell’. The thought of actually changing to what we really want creates fear.

Well don’t run back.

The courage required to make the first steps towards changing something or doing something different, is not to be underestimated, and the time it takes to build up to taking that step too.

Don’t let unease of our limbic ‘chimp’ brain, drag you back to a place of ‘safety’, where starting, to some up the courage to try again, will be even harder the next time.

When we are at our greatest feeling of unease, then that is the signal, that we are about to create our best.

We need to fight the urge to hide again, battle through, break the tasks down into small manageable chunks, and keep going. Momentum will build and then the pain will ease.

I am at that stage now, let the ‘battle’ begin, I am going to accept my fears, realise that they are a positive sign and carry on the cause.
