Get in the soup!

My motto for the first month of 2021: get in the soup! Meaning: to do a task that feels unpleasant or uncomfortable but is ultimately worthwhile. Answer the phone call, choose to show up, ask for help, lean in for the kiss if you’re feeling it. I jot down these little victories on my calendar and it feels pleasing to see the small steps of growth that’d otherwise be forgotten. When I hestitate from a place of fear this motto helps to shake out my intuition, like a magic 8-ball with only one answer: Just get in the soup!
