[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] You're not lazy

You're not lazy; you're afraid When you stall. When you procrastinate. When you make two steps of progress and then five steps back. When you lie about your progress. When you don't tell anyone of your plans so that you'll never need to lie
about your progress. When you tell everyone of your plans so that you'll be accountable, and it
totally backfires. When you sit down with your lucky pencil and a perfectly quiet work
environment and then suddenly it's all too quiet and you just gotta get out
of there and go to the coffee shop but then at the coffee shop you can't
fucking concentrate. When all of those things happen, you're not lazy. You're afraid. Hopefully, you're not too afraid to decide that today's the day you're
going to...deal with it. Even if it scares the bejeesus out of you to make
even one step in the direction of your soul's calling, that's exactly what
it looks like to work with and through your fear. That's exactly what it
looks like to be with it. No superhero antics required. Ordinary courage is all it takes.

Thank you to Kate Courageous for this wonderful lesson! Peace!
