life with fewer guardrails on
Thank you for writing this Nicole, loved every sentence. 🙏
"Doing things because you believe they matter, even if there’s no proof yet that they do." sounds to me a lot like trusting the process more than the outcome, like taking one self less seriously (and yet more thoughtfully).
It reminds me of The Fool from the Major Arcana tarot pack. With nothing more than a little knapsack, he sets off for a never-ending journey made of, let's say, many "shitty little drafts".
New subbie here, I love your format!
it's become my Sunday ritual to read your substack, another great piece Nicole!
