Ep #87: Embracing the Suck

Embracing the Suck

I’m coming to you this week with a super scratchy voice as I’ve had laryngitis for the last few days, but that’s not going to stop me from talking all about the problems we face as humans and how to embrace the suck, as my mentor calls it.

As we embark on the holiday season, I want you to expect problems. Family members are going to offend you or be stressed out, the food might flop, and flights might get canceled. I think it’s fair to say that most of us don’t like facing problems, in whatever area of our life they turn up, but I’m here to remind you that they are unavoidable. As awful as that sounds, you can learn how to make them less painful or burdensome when they do inevitably show up.

Join me this week as I share the reality of problems occurring in our lives and why you won’t ever get to that fictitious place we all wish was true, where we wouldn’t have any and we would be happy all the time. I’m sharing how I embrace the negative circumstances that happen in my life, and I hope practicing this gives you so much more ease and joy as we go into 2020 and all the years beyond.

If you want to keep this conversation going, you have to join my free Design You Podcast community on Facebook. We have great conversations over there about the podcast episodes and our podcast guests are in there too! So head on over and I’ll see you there!
