Epizody: 48

I’m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed – the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry. Because we experienced the hardship of the pandemic collectively, many of us finally acknowledged what was true before COVID and will be true after: That life is freaking HARD. We are all doing hard things every single day – things like loving and losing caring for children and parents; forging and ending friendships; battling addiction, illness, and loneliness; struggling in our jobs, our marriages, and our divorces; setting boundaries; and fighting for equality, purpose, freedom, joy, and peace. On We Can Do Hard Things, my sister Amanda and I will do the only thing I’ve found that has ever made life easier: We will drop the fake and talk honestly about the hard. Each week we will bring our hard to you and we will ask you to bring your hard to us and we will do what we were all meant to do down here: Help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, more free and less alone.

    RUNNERS & CHEERERS: Marathon Life with Shalane Flanagan

    RUNNERS & CHEERERS: Marathon Life with Shalane Flanagan

    1. How a marathon is an analogy for life: the danger of comparison, the ride of emotions and self-doubt, that love is fuel, and that the world needs both runners and cheerers.

    3. Why race day was so profound to Glennon— even though she is strongly committed to NOT running—and how she experienced her first sports injury while cheering. 
    4. A special visit by the kids’ middle school cross-country coach, Coach Loux, who became Abby’s marathon coach—and what she said at the 24-mile mark that shifted everything for Abby.

    GABRIELLE UNION: Infertility, Bonus Parents & Free Families

    GABRIELLE UNION: Infertility, Bonus Parents & Free Families

    1. Gabrielle shares—as rawly and honestly as we’ve ever heard—about the “emotional chaos” of her years experiencing miscarriage, infertility, and surrogacy.
    2. Gabrielle and Abby discuss the label and perception of “stepmom”—Gabrielle shares what she avoids at all costs in that role, and the most vital part of the role for her: consistency.
    3. How Gabrielle coached her NBA husband Dwyane before Zaya shared with him that she is gay, and how his reaction encouraged Zaya to tell the people on her “never-ever” list.
    4. Gabrielle’s insistence that home is a sanctuary where all are embraced with love, understanding, and joy—and how, if you can’t get behind all of her family members, you’re not welcome.

    Gabrielle Union is an actress, executive producer, activist, best-selling author, and Time100 cover honoree. Union will next be seen in Disney’s remake of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN developed by Kenya Barris for Disney+.

She reprised her starring role as Syd Burnett opposite Jessica Alba in the series and served as an executive producer through her production shingle “I’ll Have Another.” Union formed “I’ll Have Another” in 2018 with the goal of telling stories that center marginalized communities with their specific point of views in an authentic manner. 
     
    In May of 2021, Gabrielle released – in partnership with her husband Dwyane Wade – her second children’s book, “Shady Baby,” which became a New York Times best seller the first week of release. Her first book, We’re Going To Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated and True, was released in 2017 and instantly became a New York Times best seller. The highly anticipated follow up “You Got Anything Stronger?” was released in September of this year and was a New York Times best seller as well.

Changing My Life

I never knew I was capable of doing hard things but I am a warrior and I never knew it! I am not incapable. I have strength I haven’t yet discovered. What I needed was a roadmap, a guide, and a kindred spirit. G walks us through hard things with a new set of eyes. With the help of Sister and Abby, I am beginning to look at my life as a new adventure.

I retired this last June after 32 years as a middle school teacher. I put everything into those years with my students. I was fortunate to make terrific connections with my students and loved being a teacher.

What I was not doing was living a life outside of my classroom. My wonderful wife of 27 years was my greatest supporter but I didn’t give her the consideration she deserved.

I now find myself at a loss for who I am and what I want to do with my life. Enter “Untamed.”

Day by day, I am looking at myself and discovering new wonders. I am enjoying my life to a great degree each day. And I am spending so much more of my energy on me, my wife, and our marriage.

Thank you. I feel like you have given me a gift.
