Why It's Important To Be Congruent With Your Feelings
Being congruent with your feelings means to be the same on the inside as the outside. There's a flow. An honesty. Right now the energy around us feels very thick, and the best way to manage it is to learn to float above it. Usually, we use our home environment as a dumping ground for our stressors, or bad moods, and we tend not to share as much of our "light" at home. We believe we have to save that for where it counts - at work, or at school etc. But it's the relationships you have at home that truly impact how you relate to the outside world, so it's an excellent place to practice being congruent. Watch until the end because I'm sharing a practical and useful tip to get you going on sharing your successes and your wins in your household.

How to Avoid The Trap of Victim Culture & Build Resilience
There's a beautiful balance that can be found between being honest and true about how you feel (being vulnerable) and building resilience. But that's not necessarily what's being emphasized at the moment. In fact, the focus, more and more, is on elevating victimhood.
Though we are in a transformative time, there's a danger of going too far into victimhood and we need to be mindful as we progress forward. Because identifying with your victim story ultimately leads you to live from the outside in. It's essentially a surrendering of power. Giving your energy away to others to manage as they see fit. Only they're not the ones that can create change for you.
Living this way sucks the life out of you. When you get caught in the victim trap you are 100% reliant on other people and their perspectives. It's hard to feel grounded or safe. It feels like you are under attack. You lose touch with yourself and with your inner guidance system.
In this episode, I also discuss the victim-aggressor relationship and how you can be both as they are two sides of the same coin.
It's a deep, thought-provoking conversation. How would your life change if you could transform your victim story into a victor story?

😔There's Not Always A Silver Lining, Why Being Authentic About Your Feelings Brings Healing😔
One of the most common pieces of advice you'll hear from other people when you are struggling is to "look for the silver lining." Especially in the self-help world.
But in today's segment, I'm discussing why not ALL of your life's experiences have a silver lining.
But why is this piece of advice the go-to? Is it because we are afraid of our feelings? Afraid of voicing/expressing our pain? Is it because we are trying to hide from the realities of life? That life has highs and lows. Are we trying to fit the narrative of the people around us?
It's when we get comfortable with the dark that the light is the brightest. You don't need to suppress your emotions, or your pain, to suit the needs of those around you.
Your primary responsibility is to your SELF and that means being congruent. Faking it does not equal making it. It can, however, suck the life out of you to live out of alignment with what you feel or believe.
And you MATTER. Your feelings matter and so does your expression of your SELF. It's time to transform how we view the difficulties in our lives, and in the lives of others. It's time to be okay with the full expression of yourself because the stats tell us, clear as day, that this highlights reel we're trying to live is damaging our mental health...which in turn, is truly hurting our children.
You are resilient. You have survived the hardest days of your life so far. You deserve to feel free to share your "real" life experience.

"99% of people are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for mediocre." Tim Ferriss
Are you capable of greatness?
Let’s pretend for a moment that this quote from Tim Ferriss is an absolute truth (which I am well aware, isn't 100% accurate). Which category do you fall into? Are you in the 1% group? The people that tend to have “I want it all or I’ll die trying attitude”. Or are you with the majority, the 99% that make a conscious choice not to push past their current mental boundaries because they would rather avoid risk and settle for what’s safe and available? It doesn’t matter which category you fall into at this very moment. What matters most is which one you want to be in.
Mediocrity is complex and layered and people end up there in a variety of ways.
