Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest
One of my favorite things to experience is grace, so imagine my delight when I came across @trust_grace on Instagram. After reading about the person beyond the profile, I knew I had to have her on my show. Nancy is all the things she promotes in her work. She lives in the present with joy and love and can maintain this even when challenged. I can only imagine what kind of joy she can call up when leading a dance group…I hope I get to experience that soon!! – Stephanie Michele
Social Challenge of the Week
There are two social challenges this week:
- Fish Face Challenge – Take a vulnerable fish face photo and post it before taking the time to judge if it post-worthy or not. WHY? To experience living and loving in the moment with no fear. You know who you are, don’t concern yourself about what other people will say about the photo…Just post it. 🙂
- Body Check with Music– Go into your music archives. Select and listen to a few different types of songs. (upbeat, sad, hard rock, songs for lovers, etc) Ask yourself, “What am I feeling?” Notice if there is any sensation in your body. Once you have an answers to your “what” questions, ask yourself, “Why this feeling?” three times to explore what memories and information is there. Also make note of where different types of sensations show up in the body. Example: When you listen to something sad where does it show up and how? Is it ache in your stomach? Make note of this so when you feel that again, you can recognize sadness sooner. Be prepared to talk it out by exploring – “Something about this is making me sad? Why is that? What can I do about it?”
Online dating websites and apps are great for meeting new people yet may be creating unforeseen obstacles if your goal is a long-term relationship.
