Who could you be if you put down all the fears and external expectations?
What would this alternative you look like?
Maybe you think you’d be pretty much the same and maybe you’d be a totally different person?
Would you dress the same?
What career would you pursue?
What would you spend your money on?
What would you do for fun?
Answering these questions may feel silly. Perhaps your answers feel too far from reach. Maybe the gap between you and the alternative you feels too wide.
But I think that if you can envision the kind of person you’d like to be, you can come up with ideas on how to become that person and eventually over time, bit by bit (drip by drip), that’s exactly who you will be.
