In this series we are going to break down the word values, core values and see how this pertains to our life and business. A value is simply a way of being or believing that we hold important. (Brene Brown). Living into our values means that we do more than profess our values, we practice them. We walk our talk - we are clear about what we believe and hold important and we take care that our intentions, our words, thoughts, and behaviours align with those beliefs.

In this episode, I want to share some thoughts on comparison and what it is doing to us in our lives and in our business. In this time of building our businesses online, especially this year when so many people are having to continue to pivot, shift, change or completely reinvent themselves in an unknown territory, it is too easy to stop and compare your “progress” to someone else’s “perceived progress”.

More Episodes

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts on my reflection of sharing my story, mental health, and World Mental Health Day on October 10th, 2021. We say our mental health is very important, yet I truly believe that we are being called to rises up and support more humans especially this year. It’s interesting because there’s a larger divide than ever which leaves people feeling isolated and alone. I say this with love and want this to land, as someone who’s been in the position of trying to save someone else, including herself, we cannot support anyone if we do not prioritize our own mental, physical and emotional well-being first.

In today’s episode we discuss:

1) Years ago a Counselor kindly told me that “if my kids decided to come back to us that we needed to be a springboard to be there to support them. And at that time we were a pile of quicksand.” That message has forever hit home.

2) We must prioritize what we need on a daily basis to be the best version of ourselves and that target with the demands of our life is moving every single day.

3) If you are needing support, help, guidance, or anything, please don’t be your own worst critic or judge yourself. Asking for help and being vulnerable are not signs of weakness, they are signs of strength.

4) Learning to share my story, opened up so many doors and opportunities that I couldn’t see possible, and it helped me to heal and support my own mental health.
