One of the biggest factors that deters people from braving the path of imperfection is shame. Brene Brown defines shame “as the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging something we've experienced, done, or failed to do makes us unworthy of connection.” Shame is not embarrassment, humiliation or guilt. Shame tries to convinces us that we are the things we think, feel, do and say. This podcast dives deep into what shame is, what shame isn’t and what we can do about it.
One rule in baseball is that you have to touch the base. You can hit a home run or run like lightening around the bases but if you don't touch the bag, none of that counts. How often do we take time to touch base? To reset? To slow down enough to take a breath? This episode talks about 6 different things to consider as you commit to reset daily.
1. Keep it simple.
2. Resetting is not numbing.
3. Sleeping at night
4. Use it when you need it, practice it when you don't.
5. Lead out so your children can learn how to do it.
6. It's all about intent
Us humans are storytellers. We like beginnings, middles and ends and often times, we have expectations in life. These are the pictures we paint. We often paint these perfect pictures. Pictures without flaw, without mistakes, pictures without wiggle room. When reality doesn't match up, we feel some discomfort. This episode talks about the pictures we paint and how important it is to lean into the discomfort if reality looks different.
