When I came across the book, “How to Stop Feeling Like Shit: 14 Habits That Are Holding You Back From Happiness,” by Andrea Owen, I had many questions. Andrea is a certified life coach who helps high-achieving women let go of perfectionism, control, and isolation and choosing courage and confidence instead. She joins me on the podcast this week. So, I had the opportunity to ask her the questions that came to mind when I first saw her book. Most specifically I wondered if there were downsides to being a strong and empowered woman, things I felt were part of my DNA. We chat about that and more. We jammed on:
  • Why being strong may have its downsides
  • Why ambitious women are naturally hyper-independent and why we need to allow help from others
  • What being in control 24/7 really means
  • Can we really give zero fucks about everything?

I have a habit of writing down a list of 12 things I am grateful for each day. If I know I’m going to be out in nature, I will recite them out loud. There’s just something about saying them out loud that brings more reverence to those blessings. Do you journal as well? Would you consider journaling daily? Try it. Report back to me. I’d love to know how it has changed your life.
