Life, climbing goals, and responsibility
Chris and I sit down in my little RV in a dark Indian Creek UT parking lot and talk about real life ups and down, goal setting, failure, and inspiration. It was more than a blast to learn from this man who, “First visited Indian Creek when (I was) 4…” I like to think I had a little to share, but like always, I walked away with more to consider, learn from, and let go of.
Wine and Shine:
Getting radically honest, following your intuition, and self-compassion.
Nina, Liz, and I talk about my course in health and wellness, starting in South Africa and the HIV epidemic. We dive into understanding habits and behavior and how sometimes self-compassion means holding yourself accountable to some high standards.
Mostly, we laugh and enjoy connecting. But not without Real Talking about the funny stories we make up to excuse ourselves from making the changes we want in our lives.
Hear Her Sports:
Mountains, failure, and coaching
Elizabeth and I talk about my strange and nonlinear journey in climbing, success and failure, integrative wellness coaching, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It was wonderful!
After our conversation, I felt pretty nervous of the outcome. How did I come across? Was I too excited (…standard)? Did I overexplain, underexplain?
Was. It. Perfect??!!
Even the idea of sharing the podcast was not everything my inner critic wanted me to do.
“Maybe share it if you do another and are less gabber-y?”
Well, spoiler alert: No, it is not perfect.
It was imperfect. I was my standard excited-self, could have edited out a few ramblings, realize I say “like” more than I would, like, like to…
AND it was so incredible to hear my story through Elizabeth’s vision of feminist sports coverage. My story is something I am proud of; the roughness and smooth-sailing, the shadow and the sparkly bits.
My inner critic jumped up for a moment, it’s true. And I politely asked her to get in the backseat and not touch anything- I have places to go and will not be handing out the wheel, thank you.
Give it a listen, send me your thoughts.
What was something that pushed you out of your comfort zone? How do you respond or react to failure?
