So this morning, I got up, got straight into comments and posts in the group, showered, planned some new webinar topics, answered a few messages, made coffee and felt really awesome. Like “This is what my new life is going to look like!” kind of awesome.

Then I noticed the time and I had to get into my business attire and head for the City.

With one leg in and one leg out of my suit trousers, my ego sent me a sharp, panicked message: “What the HELL are you doing? You can’t just give this UP!”

Good one, ego. You got me right in the vulnerable one-leg-in-my-trousers space. You snuck up on me when I wasn’t prepared to deal with you. Well played. I know you’re just trying to keep me safe. But you don’t have all the information about what I need. How about we cut a deal? What if I promise you make you feel better by showing you how exciting our new work is and how certain I am that all will be okay, and you ease up on taunting me when I’m not expecting it?

Deal?

We signed that deal off and I had a good day.
