As I write this to you, I'm in a car moving down to Chapel Hill, North Carolina from New York City — to a place where I know barely anyone, but just feels right for me and my little unit. We're in desperate need of more space, more sun, more nature, and more biscuits, but it has also been so hard to move away from almost all of my close friends.
So the whole "making and acting on tough decisions" thing is very close to my heart.
Last week I posted a video about making tough decisions, but that's not the whole story.
Because what happens after you know the decision that you have to make, but are still so scared?
Still so scared that acting on that decision will be so painful, so overwhelming, that you can't move forward?
I've heard a lot of advice about dealing with this scary moment between knowing what you should do and acting on it, and I want to talk about one technique that doesn't work for me (and why), and share something subtle that really does:
Over to you: What techniques do you use when you're still scared but need to move forward with a tough decision? Have you ever tried either of these techniques? Let me know in the comments below!
And if you're in the middle of dealing with something really tough and scary right now, know that my heart is with you.
