Warrior for Change
WHAT HELPS YOU TO GROUND AND STAY IN YOUR POWER?
Doing things that make me feel like the one-of-a-kind badass that I am.
Someone told me to seek out things that make me feel powerful, instead of relying on my disorder to feel powerful.
I’ve taken that to heart: I’ve spent more time writing and expressing myself; I love being outside in green spaces (particularly if there are dogs!); I love meditation and yoga.
I had an alarm on my phone that would go off at 3:30 p.m. every day and cue a five-minute dance party because I love goofy dancing.
I think if you listen in, you can identify the things that make you you - and you can derive great joy by pursuing these things, instead of pursuing the "shoulds."
WHAT’S ONE NUGGET OF WISDOM YOU CAN LEAVE US WITH?
I have been privilege to so many nuggets of wisdom!
Two of my favorites are Mary Oliver’s poem "Wild Geese" and a hard-hitting quote from Anne Lamott: “perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.”
