(psst - I'm here a couple days after writing the post below to let you know something I forgot to say in the post. Something important I forgot to say IN the post, which is that the 5 min. video I mentioned talks about what to do if you step in it - hence the title)
While I was preparing to make a video for Dian Reid's* Summer of Authenticity (Fully Alive!) blog series I got nervous.
I was nervous first off because making videos always makes me nervous. And then I was nervous because I wasn't sure Dian would appreciate my use of, well - let's just say colorful language on her blog - and I didn't want to offend her readers.
Add to that my usual nervousness around "am I making sense here?" and "does anyone give a flying ___?" -
ok, so I was nervous - or, to use another phrase: afraid I'd stepped in shit (or was about to). But I finished the video and sent the link to Dian, who loved it - and added it to the Summer of Authenticity series (go see, go see!!).
And I lived to tell about it.
Turns out I did not step in it. Which is not a subtle message to YOU to go do something you're nervous about.
I trust that YOU know when to push and when not to. Personally, I'm allergic to being pushed (which is why reverse psychology is a good way to get me to do something I don't want to do - just ask my fam).
I just wanted to share a bit of story around the video (sometimes looking at other people's finished projects makes it easy, at least for me, to assume that it was easy for them - and that when things are hard there's something wrong with me) - and to share the link.
Also! Ohmyword! I want to suggest that you close your eyes - then open them again - and look afresh at Square-Peg People! We got face-lifted (thanks to Slightly-British Daughter, Lauren)!! Aren't we just so darn cute??
