Yes, life is a little (or a lot) disorienting right now and we are being challenged in new ways.
It is all too easy to focus on everything that is wrong with our current reality and why it shouldn’t be happening. The sooner you stop fighting reality (because let’s be honest you will never win that argument) the easier you will be able to navigate your way through it.
No, we cannot control what is happening out in the world (pandemic) but we can control how we live this day despite what is going on in the world.
You can control how you show up today.
You can control how you spend your time.
You can control how you feel
You can control what you choose to focus on.
And in this episode, I teach you one of the most powerful practices I know to help you do just that.Listen Now!
Weeks ago I asked the Grace & Grit community members what they thought I should talk about on the 200th episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast. The word “resilience” came up more than once, which I love because I think we need to be reminded of our capacity for resilience now more than ever.
So in this episode, I weave together a celebration for our 200th episode on the Grace & Grit Podcast and a conversation about what it takes to fortify your resilience.Listen Now!
How do we raise girls to honor the needs of their body, mind, and soul?
How do we raise girls to develop deep self-respect and self-love?
How do we raise girls to build resilience against “diet culture”?
We lead from the front, of course. Regardless of whether or not we have daughters.
What would a girl learn from you about self-care, self-respect or even self-love if she observed you for a day?
That is a powerful thing to consider if you are someone who recognizes that women are more than a body and deserve more than what the diet culture has offered them.
In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I explore the challenges girls are facing in today’s culture and how we can show them, by example, what it means to direct yourself with Grace & Grit.Listen Now!
If you are creating any kind of meaningful change in your life, you will most certainly be confronted with resistance…many, many times. And when feel resistance, you can hand over the car keys, which will get you nowhere (because resistance wants you to stay exactly where you are). Or…
You can use the fact that you are in the arena with resistance as an opportunity to flex your resilience muscle, which allows you to move forward with the change that you were so intent on making.
In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I talk about the difference between resistance and resilience and why you would benefit greatly from developing the latter.Listen Now!
