This week I had the privilege of having a conversation with my coach Jody Moore. She's the brains behind the popular podcast "Better Than Happy," has her Life Coaching certification through The Life Coach School, is the mother of 4, and a big inspiration!
Jody and I chat about how liberating it is to skillfully define our needs and bring our whole, content selves to our relationships and life adventures. One of the pillars of my philosophy behind Unselfish Self-care is that as grown-ups it's our job to see to it that our own needs are met. We certainly can ask for help meeting those needs. We can collaborate with our spouse, our friends, our doctors, whoever we need to, but the ultimate responsibility lies with us to figure out how to meet our own needs. No one else can read our minds. And that is such good news! We don't have to be dependent on people and circumstances outside of ourselves to determine our happiness.
If you haven't been listen to Jody Moore's podcast Better Than Happy, do it now! You'll take extra long errands just to get more listening time in :)
