156: Defining Yourself & Dealing With the Seasons of Life w/ Emily Capshaw
"So, what do you do?" A simple question that everyone asks, but so many of us don't feel confident answering – especially if you're a creative. Emily Capshaw does it all (acting, writing, filmmaking, and more) and she can assure you: It's okay to not be defined by a single identity.
For those who stay up all night working on their novel but still can't say "I'm a writer." Or those who fill the margins of their notebooks with intricate doodles but say "I'm no artist." Today, we're reflecting on creative exploration, self transformation, and more!
