This week I host for a THESE THREE THINGS discussion, Portland based creative mastermind and Senior Vice President of the brands Em & Friends and Knock Knock, cofounder of the nonprofit The Long Table, coauthor of the bookThere Is No Good Card for This: What to Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love, and fellow psych enthusiast, EMILY MCDOWELL.
We talk the different between self punishment and service, lessons from failure, and the gift of quitting.
- It’s impossible to punish yourself into feeling good.
- We can’t know what the future holds, and things that seem awful at first can ultimately turn out to be exactly what we need.
- Choosing to change course or let go of a dream doesn’t mean you’re failing or giving up; it means you’re evolving, which is one of the things we’re here to do.
Listen HERE, it's a good one!
