HOW MY OWN STORY OF IMPERFECTION LED TO BRAVE MOVES
I wasn’t ‘’supposed to’’ make a brave move that would release me from my own tyranny of expectations. I felt safer hiding and striving for perfection. My own life work story was easy for me to attach to as a safety net. Once I realized my strengths and gifts, I began to expand my vision for myself and was able to overcome the safe box I had created to work inside.
And, I had no idea that being brave was lying passionately inside me,
waiting to be dusted off again!
As Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”.
MY BRAVE MOVES INSPIRED…
Through the care of my mother, my natural, and passionate instinct for a brave move emerged. My mother was a fit, healthy woman who regularly enjoyed bike riding until one day suddenly she had a stroke and became severely disabled. Being her caregiver, and supporting my father, I took a stand for her medically and emotionally. The experience of confronting rules and regulations, expectations around aging and medical protocols pushed me to claim the bravery lying inside me. This began my journey to inspire and help working women to choose whole-being as a pathway to working well, to navigate gender parity & societal barriers as a collaborator, and to regularly practice the power of possibility.
The pillar of wellbeing is bravery. To be brave means to be inspired by the heart and this character trait help you take a stand for yourself and others as you claim your seat at the table and work well.
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
