Last week I was feeling pretty low after having had a glimpse into what my life might have been like were it not for my bad fall in 1989. At least I think that's why I was feeling low.
During that time I got an invitation from a friend to record some music with him. I did my usual default panic thing of just pretending that it wasn't happening. I mean why would anyone want to play music me me, right?
I found the courage to call him back and say yes. It was really hard, even though I knew in my heart of hearts that it really was something that I would enjoy and that would put me into the growth mindset zone.
So on Saturday I got to play music with a friend and it was really fun, just as I new it would be. It's weird that knowing that wasn't enough to get me excited about it. What is that all about?
Then yesterday I was feeling grim because of a cold and I almost defaulted on my promise to myself to record and publish a video on my YouTube channel. Somehow I managed to see it through and ship the video. I basically talked about what I'm writing here, so if you're interested in learning about how I act courageously, check it out. You might enjoy it.
