there are two options:

  1. spiral upward towards the sky - to believe you are more capable than your current state. challenge yourself & evolve beyond it.
  2. spiral downward to the earth - admit defeat against a greater force (external or within). retract to do more inner, foundational work.

neither of these are wrong. it's truly a decision of where you think your energy & effort is best allocated.

when we remove the pressure of "getting it right" the decision becomes a lot easier to make.
