I love this Creative Engagement Session! 

Before I tackle showing you this creative engagement session, let’s talk about self-sabotage. Raise your hand if you’re really good at it. *raises both hands* I’ve caught myself recently, repeatedly, doing things I know I shouldn’t…simply because I’m afraid of success. I told this to Brian recently and he was…dumbfounded. Told me that I’m really successful, seemingly fearless. But I know deep down this isn’t true. In fact, when I do too many days in a row of healthy choices, I inevitably make really bad decisions. It’s like I’m so convinced bad things will happen, that I just make them happen, rather than waiting for something I can’t anticipate.

That’s some deep ish, right?

I don’t know how to make it stop, but being aware is an important step…or something. But realizing I’m my own worst enemy is important. I catch myself ignoring emails, not answering the phone, refusing to mail something off that needs to be mailed. Now, I *do* have anxiety and depression that affects me, but this is something deeper. This is fear, telling me that I don’t have the energy to give. This is fear telling me that I don’t deserve what I’m capable of. I don’t want this to be true. I want to do big things with my life and my business.

Do you struggle with anything like this? What is something you knew you should have done but didn’t? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! 

I love this creative engagement session below, with Amanda and Dan. We woke up super early on a Saturday morning, to walk around the Domain. Of course, nothing was open and thus, it was pretty empty. Which makes it quite delightful! They’ve put a lot of energy into the design of the space, which is lovely! I also loved that these two just did a session…just because. I was happy to facilitate (after some coffee haha).
