What lights you up?
When do you feel most vibrantly alive, nourished, whole?
Stephanie Perkinson, holistic health and lifestyle coach for the bohemian at heart, wasn't always the glowing, healthy woman she is today. She once weighed over 200 pounds and felt "overwhelmed, tired, depressed, and not good enough (for anyone or anything)."
How directly do you think our emotional and physical wellbeing are tied to our feelings of self-worth?
I believe this idea of "good enough" (or not good enough) is pivotal in our everyday vitality. Are we worthy of care, of restoration, of soul-deep healing?
Stephanie was a perfect choice for the Vitality edition of our Truth Tribe interview. Her approach is honest, vulnerable, and personal. She's been through the fire herself, so when she tells of her transformation, we know we can trust her. She has lived her principles. When she says that life really can be vibrant, satisfying, and nourishing? We listen!
I asked Stephanie what tip she'd offer The Phoenix Soul readers who feel out of touch with their vitality and radiance.
Here's her response:
What's on YOUR list?
There is no wrong answer. Don't be shy! You don't have to show anyone else your list if you don't want to. Scribble down anything that comes to mind and makes your heart beat faster (or soothes and calms you). Get specific.
My list might include Berry Blast hair color!
Do you feel that tingle in your solar plexus when you look at your list?
How would your life change if you felt "your essence singing" every single day?
Consider keeping an ever-changing list, revisiting whenever you are tired, lost, lonely, confused, anxious. Create a surefire list of joy-bringers and soul-soothers, personalized just for you. See how fast you light up.
Phoenix soul, you are worthy.
You are (more than) good enough.
And you are so, so loved.
with gratitude & awe for you,
