Good morning friends!
I have something pretty cool to share today!
A few months ago I was invited to be on a podcast, The Kelly Trach Show, and I’m so excited that you can now listen to our episode!
As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Kelly’s podcast and work in general (you can see my review of her courses; Your Best Life and Your Conscious Empire), so it was such an honour to be interviewed for her show!
At first I didn’t know what I would have to share with her listeners, but Kelly is such a great interviewer and asked awesome questions, and it turns out I had a fair bit to say!
In the episode we talk about undervaluing our creative side, worrying about what others will think, and hitting that point when you've checked all the boxes and you're wondering, "well, is this really it?”
We discussed ways to actually overcome this fear or judgement, how to start valuing your creativity, and mindset tips to help you start sharing and getting more comfortable putting your creative work and authentic self out there publicly.
You can listen below, or search for “The Kelly Trach Show” in your favourite podcast app!
Other the the initial cringe moment thinking my voice sounded so weird!! (everyone thinks that about their own voice right?) I’m actually so happy with how the interview came out and how much good advice I did actually have to share! (I was sooo nervous about it before!)
This year I took a big step in putting my blog out there publicly (it had been kept very much on the down-low before!) and there was a lot of mindset work involved before I was able to make that jump.
Reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and taking Kelly’s online course Your Best Life* were two things that played a big part in being able to finally overcoming my fear of being judged.
The thing that finally pushed me to just put it out there was one sentence in the book “The Universe Has Your Back” by Gabrielle Bernstein, and it was this;
“What message are you putting out into the universe?”
I realised that because I’d been keeping this blog a secret from (almost) everyone in my real life for so long, I was essentially saying “I want to keep this hidden, I don’t want anyone to find it”, so I literally got out of bed right then, typed up a post about my blog and shared it on facebook.
It was the most free-ing feeling to put it out there!
So if you find yourself shrinking and not being your true self, or there’s something you’re scared to put out there and share with the world, I hope this episode helps you to let go of at least a little bit of that fear and brings you one step closer to feeling that freedom.
If you listen, I’d love to know your thoughts and if you resonated with any of it, or it’s helped you in any way! Leave me a comment below or come say hi to both Kelly and myself on Instagram @laurennatalia29 and @kellytrach.
We’d love to hear from you!
If you’re wanting to work on your mindset and really kick those limiting beliefs that are holding you back, I’d highly recommend checking out the online course Your Best Life*. It really was life-changing for me and I can’t praise it enough - you can read my review if you’d like to know more details :)
