    17: Belonging with Authenticity and Self Acceptance

    17: Belonging with Authenticity and Self Acceptance

    Belonging is the innate human desire to be part of something larger than us. Because this yearning is so primal, we often try to acquire it by fitting in and by seeking approval, which are not only hollow substitutes for belonging, but often barriers to it. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance. – Brené Brown



    This week we take a closer look at what it means to truly belong.  To have a sense of belonging.  This is more than just sitting in a room surrounded by people. Belonging is not merely “fitting in.” Belonging is a feeling that you are accepted and a welcome and included part of the larger group as you are right now without exception. In order to have true belonging we must be our authentic selves.  Belonging is fundamental to our connection and sense of self worth. 



    To find true belonging we must work on our sense of acceptance.  We must continue to do the hard work of listening to our inner voice and connecting to our authentic selves.  



    Belonging does not mean changing yourselves to fit in the group but it does mean that you be open and be accepting of others. 



    Belonging is important on a personal level but it also has larger implications in communities, workplaces and schools. To truly welcome others we need to be able to provide a place that they can be themselves without having to change.   By showing up as our authentic self we make it safe and open for others to show up as their authentic selves.  



    GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK



    Take a mental inventory of where/when you feel most connected; when do you feel least connected?

    Journal prompt: set a timer for 10 minutes and describe in detail your ideal group interaction. How many people are there? What are you doing? How does it feel? Where are you?

    Create a calendar reminder for sometime in the next week to start building your ideal interaction/group.

    16: SETTING BOUNDARIES TO FREE YOURSELF

    16: SETTING BOUNDARIES TO FREE YOURSELF

    This week we tackle setting boundaries.  Setting boundaries is the key to being able to be your most authentic self and live a truly limitless life.  Boundaries aren’t just a sign of a healthy relationship; they’re a sign of self-respect. So give yourself the permission to set boundaries and work to preserve them.



    It’s important for all of us to have personal boundaries. They dictate how we approach relationships with friends and acquaintances. Our boundaries help us live in-tune with our desires, needs, and feelings. They help us be our authentic selves. It’s no one’s responsibility to make you happy, just like you are not responsible for anyone else’s happiness. 



    We use boundaries to discard the world’s expectations and live our own free life. Boundaries help us navigate relationships with friends, families, and in your work.



    Boundaries are not easy to set for anyone and we know that.  We live that.  We do a deep dive into the how-tos of setting boundaries.  What you need to practice and what support you need to establish.  



    Join us, free yourself by setting boundaries!



    GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK



    Practice saying “No, thanks.” 

    Journal about your feelings when saying no. How did it feel?  What feelings came up?

    Use your accountability partner to practice setting boundaries within your relationship.

    15: WOMEN AND ANGER: AUTHENTICITY MEANS ALL THE FEELINGS

    15: WOMEN AND ANGER: AUTHENTICITY MEANS ALL THE FEELINGS

    Women are taught from early on that anger is ugly and inappropriate.  Certainly not ladylike.  On this week’s episode we take a close look at what it means to be angry as a woman, as a parent, as a member of our society.  



    We discuss what we were told about anger as children and how that influenced how we showed ourselves to the world.  Suppressing anger can be dangerous, both to an individual and society and yet we continue to reward women for hiding their anger. 



    Why is anger so important? Why is a necessary feeling disregarded for women?  Why is anger so threatening?  Join us as we dig deep to answer these questions. 



    As Soraya Chemaly says, “A society that does not respect women’s anger is one that does not respect women, not as human beings, thinkers, knowers, active participants, or citizens.” We are building a limitless society and to do so we must allow anger its place.   



    GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK



    Take some quiet time for yourself with your journal and answer these writing prompts:



    When were you angry last?

    What did you do about it?

    How did that make you feel?





    Catch up with your accountability partner and talk about the things that make you angry and how you express that anger



    Revisit your journal and see how it matches up to your conversation

    14: FEELING ALL THE FEELINGS

    14: FEELING ALL THE FEELINGS

    Today we are feeling all the things! On this episode of We Go Boldly Podcast we are talking about living authentically by allowing yourself to feel your feelings. Tune in and join us as we walk through what it means to feel all of your feelings, and allow yourself the time and space to experience the fullness of your emotional life.



    We dive into how to start noticing and being aware of what you are feeling. Naming and identifying your feelings accurately allows you to begin connecting with your highest purpose. We remind our listeners that feelings are a process, they are not always logical, and that you can have conflicting feelings. It is in reality normal to feel conflicting feelings!



    Beyond the initial process of identifying and accepting that you are in fact feeling something, we look deeply at what it means to have emotional integrity, and to be vulnerable. We talk through the idea that in order to be authentic and live a limitless life, we need to allow ourselves the opportunity to feel and process what is happening in your life. 



    When we tune into our true feelings we also make room for our intuition to step forward and guide our decisions. We open our lives to the influence and power of the world around us, without allowing it to take over. As we start to allow in feelings that we may have been denying or ignoring for a long time it can be challenging to find a balance. We remind our listeners that feeling our feelings is not the same as being consumed by our feelings. 



    Throughout, we talk about how to process all these feelings you are now letting in to your head and heart. We run through suggestions from finding a professional therapist to help you with big concerns that crop up to starting your own journaling, art, or meditation practice to work through your feelings. At the end of the day, your feelings affect you both physically and mentally. It is essential to a limitless life that you learn to identify, process, and move through the whole breadth of feelings. 



    GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK



    Revisit clearing the clutter from your mind

    Take time out during the day and start noticing your feelings, keep a journal handy and jot down what you notice or keep a voice memo for yourself

    If it feels safe to do so without the advice of a professional, start to focus on one of the emotions or feelings that you noticed from your day that maybe you pushed to the side.

    Give yourself permission to look at that feeling without judging it or letting it take over

    13: THE SCIENCE OF GRATITUDE AND WHY PRACTICING IT MATTERS

    13: THE SCIENCE OF GRATITUDE AND WHY PRACTICING IT MATTERS

    Today we talk about gratitude.  We hear a lot about gratitude in the world, whether it is a gratitude journal or the concept of practicing gratitude.  We take a deep dive to look at what gratitude truly is and why it is good for us.



    Gratitude is not the same as toxic positivity or finding a silver lining.  Gratitude involves noticing the goodness in the world, but it doesn’t mean being blind to the tough stuff or the mess that can get all of us. 



    Gratitude builds emotional resilience and flexibility by helping you see the positive things in life.  It can help you stay grounded and accept whatever your present situation is.  Gratitude can benefit your relationships and your career.



    Beyond that gratitude leads to significant benefits in all parts of your life including benefits to your physical health.  The practice of gratitude can affect your brain function, reduce your stress hormones and help manage the autonomic nervous system function, significantly reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.  



    How do you practice gratitude?  We cover that too.  We talk about consistency, gratitude journals, and ways to say thank you to your friends, family and the universe. 



    We share how we practice gratitude and our lives and what a difference it has made.  Join us today!

    12. FINDING GUIDANCE and CONNECTION in the SILENCE and SPACE of MEDITATION

    12. FINDING GUIDANCE and CONNECTION in the SILENCE and SPACE of MEDITATION

    In today’s episode we ask you, where do you find your connection?  We ask you this because in order to hear your inner voice and connect to your authentic self you are often required to find the silence and shut out the noise.  Silence is what allows you to hear yourself more clearly and to hear the world around you.  As you search for silence you may find that your mind is more cluttered than you realized.  Or you may have found that the voices that are the loudest in your mind are not actually your own.  Those voices could be society as a whole or a certain person in your history or current life.  It is the silence that can give you the peace to let you focus on your own thoughts. 



    Meditation comes in many forms and allows you to connect to the silence.  It allows you to turn inward in a deep way and connect both with yourself and your sense of spirituality. Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Meditation can produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind.



    You can meditate with a purpose - to calm yourself, soothe anxiety, release stress, alleviate pain etc.  Meditation can simply be used to help you become more mindful of what is going on inside your own body and mind - to notice.  The process of mediation is filled with trial and errors and false starts. 



    Grounding is another way to find silence in your life and gives you an opportunity to deepen your connection to the earth and the natural world.  When we ground ourselves, we’re calming or slowing down our emotions and getting more in touch with our internal and external worlds. Grounding our energy can be helpful when we feel either unbalanced or nervous. Being grounded also means that we’re more mindful with respect to our environment.



    Join us as we talk about how we have failed and succeeded at integrating both meditation and grounding into our lives.

Easy listen

I’m not a podcast fan in general, but listening to this podcast feels more like sitting down with friends to take a load off and have an honest chat. Looking forward to continuing to listen as the conversations evolve. Well done, ladies.

Awesome podcast!

I am so in love with this podcast! It couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I have been on my own journey of living a bolder more authentic life and listening to these ladies makes me feel more united in my journey. They delve into such important topics that women need to be exploring and discussing with their friends. Thank you Tovah and Rielly for being bold!

Refreshingly honest!!

As a working mom, this podcast speaks so me! A refreshingly honest take on the ups and downs of being a woman, mom, professional, friend and everything in between . I especially found “How does she have time?” to be so real and relatable. I can’t wait to follow these two amazing women on their journey!
