  • Stay, or go.
  • Win, or lose.
  • Quit a career, or stay forever.
  • Perfection, or failure.
  • Shoulds, or shouldn’ts
  • Sink, or swim
  • I could start a newsletter because it felt good to write regularly again, not because anybody would read it
  • I could figure out a way to travel to the town I want to move to regularly, even consider house-sitting options there, and try it out before deciding to make the leap of moving
  • I can do parts of this, and other parts are still intimidating me, but I will continue to work on them
  • Force myself to write down 10 possible outcomes for any situation I am confronted with that feels starkly either/or to me
  • Learn to engage with my perfectionism by trying small new activities I know I am not “good” at (singing, dancing and drawing are those for me)
