Feeling like a unicorn kid
Happy Friday Uplifters!
Yesterday I asked the Uplifter squad to share what they’re proudest of from the past year. We celebrated some of the exciting things we’ve done and accomplished, but we mostly celebrated learning.
For me, I celebrated learning how to speak my mind- with myself, with my loves, and with my work.
Maybe because my early life was a hot mess, maybe because I grew up in the south, maybe because I grew up in the 80s, maybe because I’m a woman, maybe because of all of these and 50 other reasons, I’ve never been good at asking for what I want or saying what I need.
And while not everything went great this year, everything that did was because I learned how to do this. And, frankly, it was the things that didn’t go well that taught me the most about how to strengthen my new superpower.
Maybe the same is true for you? Maybe there were moments that didn’t pan out as you hoped, or maybe you weren’t always the person you wanted to be, but maybe every one of those things was teaching you exactly what you needed to learn to grow into your most badass, high-impact, wonder-filled self.
Uplifters Live! Update
My dream guest for our live podcast episode said YES. 🎉🎉🎉 (This couldn’t have happened if I didn’t learn to ask). A hint: Every time I watch her Ted Talk I literally guffaw and then realize a few minutes later that I’m crying. Her story is the epitome of Uplifting!
If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for an inspiring woman in your life there’s still plenty of time to grab last-minute 2-for-1 tickets to our Uplifters Live! event before Christmas or New Year! I can’t wait to share this magical day with you!
Happy holidays, and let’s keep rising higher together in 2024 💗,
