Dealing with an internal struggle? Are you mentally exhausted? Needing some motivational #missionfuel to help you build your #mentalstrength so you can manage your emotions and thoughts in 2020 with all that’s going on? It’s been 252 days since I last published an episode and so much has happened since then. I knew that I needed to talk about some of what’s been happening with me in this ’time to be silent’ because 1) it’s helped me grow and get through a really tough valley season and 2) I know so many of you are dealing with a lot of mental challenges, struggles and emotions in this wild and crazy year, from dealing with the pandemic, to job and business losses and furloughs, to kids being home, social injustices, and a million other things in between. The world is out of control right now and our self care is mandatory if we are to survive and thrive going forward. Our featured guest today is Karen M. Allen. Karen was on the podcast previously (episode 118). In this episode, Karen helped me discuss and share some great insights, tips and mission fuel on helping us to build our mental strength.
