The hole we are in

Let’s be clear:

The hole we are in is not too deep to climb out of.

Doesn’t matter if we are talking about relationships that we believe are beyond repair or climate change or what the 24-hour dooms day news cycle says…we can climb out of this.

The problem is our desire to climb out of it.

Because each of us has a story. A story of fear, anxiety, lowered expectations, the avoidance of failure.

After a while we believe it. That this is as good as it gets. “It’s really scary out there. Don’t risk making things worst.”

It’s a choice to stay put. Another to move forward. Simply taking action is enough of an antidote to change our narrative.

What we do is who we are.
