Life has been a struggle for me lately. In this solo episode, I get vulnerable, sharing my hard beautiful journey and the importance of having the courage to get in the arena.
We are all living in challenging times right now. There’s so much uncertainty with the ongoing pandemic and the war in Ukraine. As many of you may know, I lost my brother to a tragic drug overdose, and I’ve been missing him like crazy.
Today, I want to share something that has been on my mind lately. One of my therapists reminded me of its importance, and I hope that it inspires you and has the profound impact that it’s had on my life.
Here are three reasons why you should listen to the complete episode:
On a personal level
The depths of despair and depression
Fighting for my life
The mental health space
It’s not the critic who counts
Addicts are in the arena too
Basic human need
Choosing to love my brother through it all
He felt the love that I had promised
On a professional level
Show up and be vulnerable
11:38 – “It’s simpler to sit on the sidelines and do nothing. And it’s always easier to criticize and sneer at those who have the courage to take chances, especially behind a keyboard. But there is no meaning or true fulfillment in this, and there never will be; you have to show up and be vulnerable. You have to be the man or woman in the arena”.
12:13 – “Two things we get every day are a chance and choice. Let’s put more value on our choices; that’s what determines our destination”. (Quote by J Prince)
