Episode Notes:

  • Fear can show itself as uncertainty.
  • It’s okay to be uncertain but honor you’re the work you are doing.
  • It’s so important to understand your feelings and how fear is showing up in your life.
  • There is a difference between needing to take a pause and reflect and and being stagnant, where there is no decision to be made at this moment.
  • Life is filled with subtle shifts that can help you feel more powerful.
  • The power to do all things, including those that are hard, is within you.
  • Sometimes doing the hard thing is the right thing, and could make you feel better.

Helpful tips to get through the uncertainty:

  • Make a list of things that you feel are taking up space and keeping you from moving forward.
  • Take action even if it’s the smallest of actions to take that step forward out of the chaos.
  • Be patient with yourself and give yourself grace.  
  • Don’t carry the negative thoughts that say “you can’t” with you.
