Give yourself permission to evolve.

When I was a kid the way to my heart was easy…

Just pass me the Velveeta cheese. Yes, really.

My underdeveloped 10-year-old palate thought Velveeta could do no wrong. It made everything taste better.

My dad, seeing how happy the gooey, cheese-like substance made me, even learned how to make soup out of it that we would take on weekend ski trips. #bestdadever

Adulthood, however, has a way of revealing inconvenient truths that change us and that was certainly the case with Velveeta.

I evolved, my tastebuds evolved and my knowledge of nutrition evolved. All of which extinguished my love affair with Velveeta. I can’t remember the last time I ate the stuff.

My amazing dad, however… the guy who made that cheese soup… still puts a block of Velveeta cheese in the fridge every time I come to visit even though it goes unopened. I think it is his way of taking us both down memory lane and I love him for it.

Here’s the thing…

I am not the same person I was 35 years ago. Heck, I am not the same person I was 5 years ago. I bet you aren’t either.

Life changes us.

We learn, we grow and, with a willingness to keep fighting the good fight, we evolve into more robust versions of our former selves.

The Grace & Grit podcast has been no different.

I started the podcast 7 years ago because I was frustrated that “women’s health” was being crammed into a tiny little conversation of diet and exercise.

Today I continue this podcast because I don’t just want to encourage women to think about health in a more expansive way, I want to encourage them to think about their life in a more expansive way.

It was time for a reintroduction:) Which is precisely what episode 293 is.

Producing nearly 300 episodes of this show has not only helped me to evolve as a woman, but my business, my mission, and my message have all evolved because of it.

I hope you are giving yourself permission to evolve too … even if that means letting go of things you once loved like Velveeta cheese:)
