58: Fish Tank Empowerment

58: Fish Tank Empowerment

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
In this episode, I introduce you to a concept/analogy that came to me as I drove home from She Podcasts Live — conceived in my effort to keep the momentum from the conference going for days, weeks, and months ahead. 
 
I utilized my long car ride homeward to work through the struggle that I knew had the potential to remain in my life had I not processed it in this way. I share this with you with love and hope you find the motivation and inspiration that I found in it the next time you experience an event in your life like this.
 

When you honor who you are, the universe responds.

I am living this now. It is three months out from the conference, and this analogy continues to serve me well. I am savoring the simmer as I return to the giant fish tank.
