Sometimes it feels like the world is bent on telling you who you “must” be.
As a prompt, write your own recipe for resistance. What do you suggest for shaking it up?
Today is a day to look for cracks to move through. Change form. Pick a new exit. Try a new greeting, and a new way of saying goodbye. If it feels like a yes, say yes. If it feels like a no, then no way. Stop coming up with a reason. Today you don’t have to explain yourself. Move towards people who you can sit in silence with. Share things you have made with people, but don’t ask for feedback. Feel free to change your mind, even if you won’t. Let other people make the plans, and allow yourself to be a guest in their world. When you feel awkward, find a bathroom and give yourself a hug. Look at yourself in the mirror and say a word that makes you laugh, like “beeswax” or “cornucopia.”
