Thanks so much for this! I am reading about myself here. Going to save this post and reread several times as I have these visits to make myself this week! Thanks again...
This was exactly what I needed to read right now. The reference to improv and learning to affirm the moment and go with it, instead of against it, is so hard because we have to suspend or surrender our illusions of control. Yet as you show, it is where the gold of growth and discovery are found. When being authentic we only risk losing our chains of conformity and limitations. Thank you for putting yourself out there both in your writing and your cold calls. I have to add some leaping back in my life!
Glad to know I am not the world's only introvert therapist!
