Do you pick a word for the year? This is a practice I have done for a few years. Last year my word for the year was "Enough." As I kept this word on the forefront of my mind, I have seen it pop up in many different places. It has provided many opportunities for me to learn and study. Join with me in this episode as I discuss what I've learned this year about "ENOUGH." 1.  It’s not a one and done deal 2.  EVERY PERSON has this underlying fear of Not Being Enough 3.  Your being enough does not come from outside of you. Worth is different from Value. 4.  Operating in not enough NEVER serves us. This is a great episode as we conclude a year of "Enough" and get ready for next year's word!

Fear has been a big topic this month. There is so much to learn about and understand what goes on in our brains when we are afraid. This episode focuses on what to do when we are afraid and why we would want to do anything. When we are afraid we can pause, recognize our fear, then replace it with excitement or put it in the back seat, as Elizabeth Gilbert would say. Why do this? Because on the other side of fear is freedom. Freedom to create, have experiences, and progress. On the other side of fear is faith, hope, and love for ourselves and for others.
