Empowered By Design Podcast: Psychology, Mental Health and Wellness, Relationships, Mindset, Self-care, Self-reflection and Personal Growth

Did you ever feel like you were forcing something that just didn’t feel right?  You were pushing forward, plowing ahead and maybe missing clues or information that was telling you to slow down??  Me too.  In today’s episode, we have a Heart to Heart - a real, raw conversation about my own experience - just this week! - with feeling like I was forcing something, and it just didn’t feel right.  And, I took a step back, gave myself some time and space - time to focus on other things and to take time away.  And that process of pausing, taking a break, allowed me to re-gather my energy, re-group my thoughts, re-channel my emotions and re-design my action plan.  What a powerful experience!!  And, I’m so excited to share it with you.  Because, we’ve all been there.  It’s nice to know we’re not alone!  And when we allow ourselves time and space to experience it (feel the feels, y’all!), process, rest, and regroup - we come back stronger and more in line with our energy, purpose, passion and vision!
