078: Hiding Under Desks, Prioritizing Pain & Other Hard Things with JESSICA RIBERA

078: Hiding Under Desks, Prioritizing Pain & Other Hard Things with JESSICA RIBERA

Today I have to thank Jessica Ribera for being so willing and open to jump into our conversation so blindly. She and I talk about the moments we share while dealing with our respective pains and losses. Jessica lost her ballet career. I lost my career as a cellist. Today we both find ourselves using the word writer as a self-descriptor. Jessica and I both retain our emotional sobriety today, however we do talk about the moments we denied our lack of emotional sobriety and instead tried to numb or deny the pain we were so vividly fighting to feel. We talk about writing. We talk about being honest. We talk about career-ending injuries. We talk about gaining, losing, and regaining our vision for the possibility. Please enjoy my brand new friend Jessica Ribera!

Today's conversation is a perfect example of the nakedness required for big bold actions. Sometimes being still, pausing your movement, and listening on a deeper level takes more bravery than keeping the hustle going.

This week I needed to hop on a soapbox. I saw a quote the other day attributed to the lovely Brené Brown which I (shockingly) disagreed with. Normally, I love Brené's work, but the quote I read of hers did not sit right with me.
