When I was younger, I always assumed people would eventually grow out of odd social dynamics, but over time I’ve found out that it takes work! Observing the behaviors of others (& MYSELF!!) has made me want to be better & never stop developing. Let’s work to respond the right way in tough social situations. We can overcome offenses, be vulnerable & push forward – no matter what!
Whenever I make a mistake I'm so thankful to be on the receiving end of mercy! When people have something come up & they can't pull off what they have promised or committed to – I work to live by the golden rule! Treat others how you want to be treated! I do believe that the way I handle other people with be extended back to me. So that understanding acts as a compass & a guide on how I choose to quickly cover others with love & grace & to not hold grudges! Let's choose to live a lifestyle of letting people off the hook, genuinely loving each other & forgiving quickly!
It’s so easy to be pulled in a million directions – it’s much more difficult to stay focused & intentional. If we’re going to make the impact we’re supposed to, we need to dig deep & figure out what we should put our hand to, how to efficiently design our lives & what can be delegated away.
The whole concept of putting everyone else before yourself looks great on paper, but for the long game it just doesn't work. We have to take care of ourselves so that we have something to offer all the people around us!
It really helps me to understand we all have a different capacity. What completely derails me might cause someone else to rise to the occasion. I have learned we all are growing & it brings so much understanding to circumstances when people are acting crazy to remember we are all in a process. I want to increase my capacity like a container than can hold a lot, so I can help share the weight with people. It helps me to realize we all have different things that freak us out & that it’s all relative to each person’s capacity & ability to carry things.
This is our fourth & last round of Q & A together & we cover all kinds of ground this week! On a lighter note this time, we talk about everything from hobbies & childhood memories to winning over a room & my favorite between vanilla & chocolate!! 🍫😍 Enjoy!
These are some good questions stimulating some deep answers! This week we talk about defining moments in life, never quitting, communication & confrontation. I laugh, I cry, I'm honored to bare my soul here but DANG HAHA! I lost my filter when I lived in Nashville for 4 1/2 years so you're right into my heart pretty quickly with the answers to these questions!
This week is Part 2 of our Question & Answer sessions together! This has been really fun! For this round, we talk a lot about relationships: what to look for in a true friend, seasons of isolation, healthy vs. toxic relationships—we go deep! This stuff is tough to navigate, so it's important to discuss it!
I had some of you submit questions and I had so much fun answering all of them! Check out the first installment of our Q&A sessions from some of my podcast listeners where I talk about everything ranging from conquering fear to how red lipstick is a girl’s best friend!
