Four things I learned this week.
1. Crisis requires a lot of recovery. My brain said, “things are fine now, we have work to do.” My body said, “we did a little and it is enough. I am exhausted.” My soul said, “we can trust the restoration. Be at peace.”

2. The sisterhood rocks. So grateful for my community of women.

3. I need a several day break from parenting.

4. @whitneyeellison and I are going to change the world. Stay tuned.

That is all for now. You may return to your scrolling.

I keep thinking about this. 2020 was a year of things lost and found. It's okay to hold reverence for both. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I think it will take at least a decade for us to collectively speak from a place of wisdom about our experiences during this time. In the meantime, reverence is the best option. ⁠⠀

In honor of MLK and our ongoing anti-racist work, if you’ve been curious about what Black Lives Matter is about, if 2020 showed you things that made you wonder if we still have work to do then please know I am happy to have a conversation.

If I am going to talk about wellbeing, then I also need to respect the challenges people face that negatively impact their wellbeing. That includes racial bias and bigotry in any form.

Reframing "I hate the cold"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's true. I do hate the cold and the lack of sun. However, I do love the simple beauty of winter. I love that winter is a time of rest and waiting. It's a natural reminder that things are becoming even in rest. ⁠⠀

I work with several female entrepreneurs. Our risk of catastrophic failure is high. And yet, we honor our needs. We know that our success is deeply connected to our capacity and our capacity is informed by our wellbeing.

This text is from Whitney Ellison @wellisonenterprises . The work we’re launching together is to support the wellbeing of Executive Women so they can become influential change makers in the corporate landscape.

We know the work because we live the work. Stay tuned and take good care of yourselves.

I trust myself. As an entrepreneur and homeschooling mom, I have no necessary schedule. At first I imposed one on myself. Then over time I came to realize how unnecessary that was.

My first priority is to meet my needs and this family’s needs. That looks different each day.

At some point today, my bed will be made, my kids will have gone through their lessons, my work goals will be met. A home cooked dinner will be made and I will spend some time caring for myself.

What’s interesting to me is the guilt I felt (and sometimes still feel) when I am not over functioning. It surprises me that I was afraid I would become a low functioning slob if I didn’t maintain a rigid schedule.

And then again, it’s not surprising. We live in society addicted to busy-ness and achievement. And we work in places that mandate our schedules because THEY can’t trust us. It’s all built in.

But I am calling shenanigans on the whole thing. You and me, we are high functioning people who survive- no matter what. Meeting our needs doesn’t change that.

The health industry regularly reminds us that we have to regulate, restrict, and manage our bodies. But the truth is that we were born with a complex biological system that takes good care of us and informs our needs.

Imagine if you had a coaching appointment with a pulmonologist to manage your breathing. It would be absurd. You trust your lungs to breathe and take care of your needs. You can trust your metabolic system to take good care of you.

Never be so kind,
you forget to be clever
Never be so clever,
you forget to be kind

And if I didn't know better
I'd think you were talking to me now
If I didn't know better
I'd think you were still around
What died didn't stay dead
You're alive, you're alive in my head
What died didn't stay dead
You're alive, so alive

Never be so polite,
you forget your power
Never wield such power,
you forget to be polite

I should've asked you questions
I should've asked you how to be
Asked you to write it down for me
'Cause every scrap of you would be taken from me
All your closets of backlogged dreams
And how you left them all to me

What died didn't stay dead
You're alive, you're alive in my head
And if I didn't know better
I'd think you were singing to me now
If I didn't know better
I'd think you were still around
I know better
But I still feel you all around
I know better
But you're still around

-Taylor Swift

She would have been 41 years old yesterday. I forgot about it in the midst of this week’s mess. But grief lives in the marrow of our bones. It finally occurred to me in the afternoon what was really haunting me. Thanks for all the wisdom you gave me in your short 20 years.

On podcasts and presentations I often get asked to share one nugget of wisdom to leave everyone with. It’s this, when we’re struggling we feel like we’re failing. So we drive ourselves harder. But the truth is, as leaders and parents, when we’re struggling so is everyone around us. We need to take our foot off the gas. We need to take a breath and remind ourselves and those around us that we’re all going to be okay. Stop. Breathe. You are not failing. You are enduring a multitude of challenges that seem to have no end in sight.

It’s okay if the basics feel hard. It’s okay if you have days where the resilience runs dry. I am saying this for you because I need to hear it myself. I am not a failure in my struggle and neither are you.

Wellbeing is generous. The pursuit of a thriving life creates opportunities for others to do the same. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here is the literal science behind that. In Self Determination Theory, there is a concept called, Autonomous Extrinsic Motivation. Which is fancy for, we adopt the behavior of those around us. Which is fancy for misery loves company. And if that’s true then so does joy. Joy loves company. When you pursue a healthy, meaningful, thriving life, you create opportunities for others to do the same. ⁠⠀

Let’s talk. I am happier than I have been in years. I have spent the past five years peeling away layers of armor that were stifling and heavy. I am now profoundly rooted. I find that I am happy to the core of my soul...

And yet, it’s a pandemic and I have days where my fullest needs are not met. I miss my friends. I want to go to a restaurant. I want to have something on my calendar that requires fancy clothes. I hold reverence for those lost.

All this to say, it’s okay that our existence is complex and our feelings are dynamic. You can be more than one thing at a time.

This crew. Forever. Got us through 2020. Happy new year!!! ...

Guilty as charged. I am always moving the finish line on myself. The problem with that is thinking there is a finish line. There is no place in which you will arrive where you will finally feel good enough. Believing you are worthy of a meaningful, nourishing life begins now and can be practiced by removing the imaginary finish line.⁠⠀

No New Year’s goals here. Just practicing presence and being good enough.
