For the first half of my life, I learned how to stuff my emotions down. The second half of my life, I’m trying to allow them to flow.
What do tears mean? Why are they such a source of shame for us? Can you allow them?
Have you ever said something that you immediately regretted? Over 20 years ago I said something to my sister that I have felt shame around this whole time. In this episode, I walk you through an exercise I went through to help me find some compassion toward myself about this particular story from my life.
Do you have that one part of your body that you just really don’t like? For me it has been my teeth since I was about 10 years old. I talk about it in this episode.
For you, it may be a different part of your body, but the feelings and principles might be the same.
If you are interested in exploring life coaching with me to address the shame you feel, schedule a free call here.
In today’s episode, I step back from stories about my past and speak to a little about my current stories. I talk about goals and how we must feel uncomfortable to reach them. But our brain doesn’t want to feel uncomfortable. There is a part of our brain that is solely focused on keeping us alive (comfortable). I give a few thought exercises to get you actually reaching your goal.
I hope you enjoy!
In this episode, I discuss one of the major turning points in my life and the lessons I learned: when my mom died. I tell you how I saw the hand of God during this trial.
