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:)
