  1. Susan Jeffers wrote the classic book, Feel the fear and do it anyway. 

    For me, the nugget of the book was discovering my biggest fear:

    • Loss of job? Nope
    • Loss of a loved one? Nope
    • A terminal illness? Nope
    • Death? Nope.
    It is, I won’t be able to handle it. 

    “But, those things are big issues!” I hear you protest, just like I did. Think about it. What can’t you handle? Nothing, even death! We always handle it! And what we are currently going through we will ‘handle’ too.

    Make a quick mental or actual list of all the things you don’t think you can handle?

    Mine are:

    • My Mum and Dad’s Death
    • My family getting Corona Virus
    • Me getting Corona Virus
    • Not being able to make money
    • Not being able to get at my pension.
    The list goes on and on, doesn’t it?

    Now look at those things that have happened – this is a bit harder – and try and remember how you felt before they happened?

    Mine are:

    • The world goes into a very real risk of a pandemic, killing many
    • No socialising
    • No sport
    • No running in the hills
    • Income drying up
    Just look how we ARE handling it!

    Shout if you need help.

    Come ride with me and  we’ll move mountains together.

    Be well and trust yourself,
