Self-Awareness: Looking in the Mirror with the Real Kathy LeeLooking In the Mirror

This week I spent hours and hours talking with some friends that were going through some pretty serious issues. Ladies, we need each other. This week isn’t about your toddler biting or your four year-old who wets the bed. This week, let’s talk honestly about YOU… and me… and all of us.

self-a·ware·ness

ˈˌself əˈwernəs/

noun

  1. conscious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives, and desires.

“the process can be painful but it leads to greater self-awareness”

Would you say that you are self-aware? How does one become self-aware? Does it even matter? On this week’s episode I share my thoughts on this subject and my journey of self-awareness. I fully believe that our past influences our present. Believe me, I don’t have it all figured out and the number one thing I tell everyone is GIVE YOURSELF GRACE. We all need it!

I suggest the following as you look in the mirror:

 

  1. Be still
  2. Be honest
  3. Be vulnerable
  4. Share your journey with a few people you can trust.
  5. Be willing to learn.

Check out Andy Stanley’s sermon, What Happy Couples Know.

Hugs for you as you take a look in the mirror this week. May you find the strength to be honest with yourself and address anything that might have been hiding or tucked away.

Say YES and have a great week!!!

Setting Intentions for 2018 with Christy Montes

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Setting Intentions for 2018I can’t believe 2017 is coming to an end. It seems just yesterday I was ringing in 2017 with family and sweet friends, including ASH A LEE. I remember last year, Ashley and I decided that FORWARD would be our word for 2017 and I think both of us lived out that word in our lives. As we thought about 2018, Balance kept coming to mind. I need balance in all areas… work, home, health, relationships. I plan to work on balance in 2018. My best girls, Christy and Ashley also decided to make balance their word for 2018. What is your word?

On this episode, Christy and I talk about setting intentions for 2018, deciding what our focus will be and writing it down. We talked about vision boards, journaling, good books, and daring to grow. Do you have plans to work on your self as 2018 approaches? If you need help, let me suggest some good resources:

1.  Brazen by Leanna Tankersley

Brazen

2.  The Gifts of Imperfection, Braving the Wilderness, and Rising Strong by Brene’ Brown

3. Start Where You Are by Meera Lee Patel

Find some time to be quiet and reflect on 2017. After you do that, think about the next year. Plan some time for you, for you and your partner, for you and your family. I hope 2018 is your best year ever!

Happy New Year,

Kathy
