Alrighty, let’s point out the elephant in the room – it’s almost been a year since my last entry. And yup, I am not overly proud of it, but c’est la vie (I just got back from Montréal, my apologies!).
As I wrote in the start of the blog, it is difficult for me to be creative when the juices are not flowing, and because of some indecision regarding what direction I wanted this blog to take, they almost stopped entirely. But due to some Montréal-initiated brilliance, something came to me and I believe it fuses together a few of the ideas I tossed around about what this blog could be.
When I facilitate, I have the opportunity to meet a lot of amazing people on a daily basis and have the luck to squirrel away many a pearl of wisdom from these interactions. Some of what I learn is new, other times I get a gentle (or not so gentle…) reminder. That’s why this gig is so great! It has the potential every time to become a symbiotic existence where information flows amongst all parties involved. So I am both the teacher and the student on many an occasion.
I would like for this blog to become a place where I share the wisdom I have learned, or what ah-ha moments I have landed upon from the experience itself. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this information, as well as anything else I come across that I think would be great to share with you in the health & wellness realm.
So, let’s get started!!
What I learned today:
Authenticity is the only way to go. Allow people to connect with the real you, not someone you believe you are supposed to be. Because if you stop and think about it, it’s too exhausting to be any other way.
If you want to learn strategies about how to do become more authentic, I highly recommend Brené Brown’s work and especially her book, “The Gifts of Imperfection.”
