Give it a yank

Your brain is hiding quite a lot from you.

Maybe it just gets lost. Perhaps we’re just scared.

It’s not like it’s ever been easy to start taking on the world in our own special way. But we do it all the time.

And when we think about it, starting was always the hard part.

We don’t give ourselves enough credit for the number of times we’ve yanked the ripcord on our diamond-edged brains and unleashed some badass topiary on the world.

Those first struggles fade, the little pains and victories that seem so big at the time quickly withering into yesterday.

Some days when it seems particularly hard, it’s useful to remember that it’s never been easy, but we’ve done it many times before.

And we know exactly how things will go if we just get started.

So give it a yank and get going.
