Hey Brave Table fam, it’s great to see you here! Thank you for joining me for today’s solocast episode, where we get deep and discuss the journey of finding authenticity and self-acceptance amidst life’s pressures and expectations.

In today’s episode, I share my personal reflections and insights on the importance of embracing your true self. From impromptu getaways with my girlfriend gang to navigating the waves of motherhood and societal expectations, I explore the complexities of staying true to oneself.

What you’ll get out of this episode… 

  • Explore how to recognize when you’re not being true to yourself and the impact this has on your well-being.
  • Gain insights on how to ensure your actions and relationships are in harmony with your core values.
  • Learn to assess why you choose to engage with certain people or environments and how they influence your emotions.
  • Discover the power of small, intentional choices that honor your needs and protect you from negative influences.
  • Learn strategies for increasing your capacity to shield yourself from draining interactions and relationships.

What’s your journey of self-acceptance been like? Share your story with us on Instagram.
