My monkey mind woke me up early yesterday —whirring, whizzing, spinning, trying to WILL me to do something I’ve been procrastinating on–  the tell-tale sign that  I was stuck . again. { sigh. }

But I didn’t panic (or uselessly beat up on myself!) because I know by now that getting stuck is just a part of getting creative— and I didn’t need to stay stuck. I knew exactly what to do about it. {yeah!}   That’s because I’ve learned 3 super-important things about fear that can dissolve blocks in minutes.

What are you working on? getting stuck on? busting through on? I’d love to know! Please leave a comment  below–and let me know how your FRIPs go! I cherish your responses and reply to every comment.

Wishing you a juicy, flow-filled week!

P.S. Knowing you need to do a FRIP is not enough to dissolve the block. {Trust me, I have tested this!} You actually have to FRIP the fears to release the block. The good news is that you can do it in 5 minutes –which is nothing compared to what you waste procrastinating…
