Writing this, I have a back spasm, and am shaking my head at how I've fallen off my morning routine commitment the past few days.
Yes, the morning routine I committed to on last week's episode 😂! This is also week one of the 100-day movement challenge I recommitted to, yet I haven't been able to move consistently because of my injury. This week has really reminded me not to take myself too seriously, and to give myself grace (and not be so hard on myself) when things take more time than expected, or when unexpected things happen.
What I've learned over the last decade is that falling off, especially when starting something new (habits, routines, commitments) can be totally demoralizing. It can be the excuse you need to not keep trying. However, what I've also learned is that our resilience is what allows us to pick ourselves back up and try again. Both in the face of small 'failures' and larger traumas and losses we can experience in life.
Tune into this week's episode to hear about how we tap into our own resilience when we are triggered or when we experience the harshness that life can dish up (the Holiday's can be tough, here's a chance to take a breath before things kick up a notch).
This episode is a dive into further conversations I want to have around resilience.
I have become deeply curious about resilience, and realized recently that when I interview people, I am most fascinated by how they rise, and how they have come back from the hardest moments of their lives. I'm fascinated by it because my 20s were riddled with traumas, losses, illnesses, and more that required me decide to pick myself up over and over again. I am on a mission now to better understand what it is that allows us to rise time and again, over and over when life gets hard. Stay tuned for more on this in the New Year and on tour.
