Being nervous about something that matters to you is normal.
Nervousness, like any other feeling, should not be ignored or denied.
You cannot simply wish or push away your feelings and expect them to disappear.
Your feelings exist, they are real, and they must be acknowledged.
If not, you actually give them power to rule over you in darkness.
It is far better to shine the light of truth on your feelings, to lean into them, and to ask them what they are trying to teach you.
Your feelings are not something happening to you.
They are part of you.
Learn to accept them.
When you are nervous, smile at your nervousness, welcome it in, and sit with it.
Embrace it like an old friend.
You have both been here before and you will be here again.
It is time to get to work, together.
