    Join us this week on The Grit Show for a journey into the essence of authenticity and self-expression. Using delightful anecdotes, including the unique dynamics between her cats, Meiko and Hobbes (whom by the way has been with Robie for 13 years- apparently the 8 year mark from the start of their relationship is what stuck in Shawna's mind!), Shawna uncovers how we often change ourselves based on others' reactions.
    Come reflect on your own experiences with Shawna’s thought-provoking narrative, especially when she reveals a pivotal moment from her life about not sharing exciting news due to fear of others' responses. She shares insights on maintaining personal values and boundaries, stressing the importance of showing up fully as ourselves. We are all on this journey of self care and personal growth together. Engage with Shawna's self-reflection tips and discover how to shine your brightest while embracing your true authentic self. This episode is a must-listen for anyone striving to live authentically and navigate life's pressures with grace.
