I do consider myself pretty gutsy or brave but as a young girl, I wasn't encouraged to be brave. I did this to myself. I put it in my head early on that I had something to prove. This made me your typical tomboy which lead to mostly playing with boys and as we all know boys play differently than girls. I used to climb walls, jump fences (I still have a scar on my leg), race each other, wrestle (until my mom told me not to do it, "No se juega así con los niños" she said) and finally, tag.
This TED talk by Caroline Paul resonates with me because I've always been told by both men and women that I'm brave but I've never felt brave. I just felt normal. I sometimes thought something was wrong with me because so many people would point that out about me. Maybe I'm just not cautious enough or maybe I don't really care about what others think. Whatever the reason or my upbringing it served its purpose and it continues to so. I could only imagine what I would have accomplished with a little more support from home! Whoa! Here's a great listen (or read) from Caroline Paul, author of "The Gutsy Girl: Escapades for Your Life of Epic Adventure", talk about how to raise brave girls. What will you be doing to practice being brave this week? Maybe speak up for yourself or others? or try something new and out of your comfort zone?
What do yo have planned this fall? As for me, I'll be giving painting a go. I'll let you know how I do!
Getting organized is a change in habit or behavior which means that it has a trigger and a consequence. I’ve worked with many women that have this negative emotional tie or association to getting organized and it is so difficult for them to become the person they really want to be. This negative emotional tie is a trigger that basically makes you inactive in getting organized. The moment people hear “to lists” or “schedule” or “agenda” or maybe even “follow this schedule” it starts an emotional uneasiness, sometimes unbeknownst to them, and then nothing happens. Maybe they’ll try but it won’t stick.
