Here's what I'm learning:
If the first bus is super crowded, wait the 30 seconds for the next one--it'll make for a much more pleasant ride.
No one feeling is more valid than another. And you can't just decide upon happiness. But when five feelings are blowing through you, you can choose which one to lean into. And joy feels a heck of a lot better than most of the others.
If you do enough things that feel like standing-on-the-edge-of-a-cliff, suddenly that cliff-edge doesn't feel so scary (and you may even start to enjoy the view).
And as a girlfriend said to me recently--to assuage a particular fear--Oh, it's like finding a parking place--eventually, you'll get one.
