Katrina's Letter Of The Week

September 13 · Issue #76 · View online
Every week, I'll write you a letter. A letter about anything, really. My goal is just to make you think. Then, I handpick 3 ideas and posts you'll love (and learn from).

This week was full of depression triggers for me: Suicide Awareness Day, September 11th, and even the big launch for Three Ears, too. The chaos, the memories, and the happy moments flooded my mind and made it a hard place to be sometimes. 
You might think that’s strange. I think most of us assume happiness is an overwhelming feeling. That it will whisk us away from the present into this pleasant existence where doubt doesn’t corrupt our minds. That it will make our brains stop whispering lies about why we’re not good enough. 
That’s why so many of us feel stuck in our life when we’re stuck at work. Joy is fleeting and full of doubt in every career. I find this to be especially true as an entrepreneur. There’s an enormous amount of empowerment that comes with making every decision, but there’s also an echo chamber. No one is there to say kind things or redirect you. That’s people management, too. It’s every job.
That’s why you need a Feel Good Folder. I started one last year, and it’s where I go in the moments when I don’t remember why. It’s simple. Make a folder in your email. Name it, “Feel Good Folder.” That’s where you’re going to file every supportive thing anyone emails to you. The “thank you for noticing me” and the “you’re just the best,” emails. The ones that make you smile for hours because you know at that moment you belong here. You’re on the right path. You’re doing something right. 
You all filled my Feel Good Folder this week supporting the launch of my workbook. But I want to say thank you for something bigger than that. You help me. You remind me I belong. I can’t begin to explain to you how much that means - good days, bad days, and every single one in between. 
So thanks for that.
