You may recall me sharing a fairly goofy self-interview with you in the past. Today I’m doubling down on the goofy as I continue my ongoing commitment to adding some light to my heartedness. If that means I will forever be represented by the words in today’s newsletter, I will make comedic peace with that. A few years ago I read that humor is commonly used as trauma therapy. While that’s obviously not gonna be a great route for everyone, when it helps me– it REALLY REALLY helps.
One additional note— self interviews such as this are not so different from my meditation practice. That might be hard to believe once you read about my funny boner, but for me, this is a practice in watching my own mind, hanging out in the background witnessing my own personality do its thing. I like my personality a lot. But I don’t think of it as me. I think of it as an outfit my spirit is wearing. A fantastic outfit at times. But still an outfit.
Please enjoy the flare of today’s fashion. And if you end up giving this a shot, I’d love it if you’d share in the comments. I always appreciate being reminded I’m not the only person this weird.
