45: Why is this work so difficult?

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
Just in case you were wondering, I revert to autopilot some days. Gasp! Yes, it is true. I appreciate it when I notice these days and can move forward quickly. I love the work, and I believe in it one hundred percent, but I believe I must provide you with proper warnings on what you may expect when you do this work.

This work will always be in our lives, and in this episode, I talk a bit about why it isn’t easy.
