Ep. 41 Fitting In vs. Belonging

A lot of people confuse fitting in and belonging. Fitting in requires us to put on a mask; belonging requires removing our masks and risking rejection by being authentically vulnerable. Where in your life do you struggle to belong for who you truly are? And what are you modeling for your kids about the need to fit in?

In this episode I'll share several stories of how I've wrestled with belonging and rejection, and we'll take a cue from The Greatest Showman for marching to the beat of our own drums.

Fitting in is overrated.

But belonging truly matters as we seek lives of mojo, more joy.

May you truly, deeply, vulnerably and authentically find a tribe with whom you belong. And may you begin first by belonging to yourself.

Hi, I'm Wendy :)

I'm a podcaster, life coach and woman trying everyday to live with mojo, more joy. I have a Masters of Divinity degree (pastor's degree, Methodist tradition) with training in counseling and spiritual direction, am certified in the science of happiness, and have a research background at Duke University helping hundreds of participants through depression.

But mostly, I'm a mom. We probably have a lot in common.

Your kids deserve a confident, mentally-fit 

and joyful mom.

You deserve to be her. 

It's my core belief that when moms own their power and influence, everyone benefits. Being the best version of you is the greatest gift you can ever give your family.

It's why I do what I do. I once was where many moms  are: second-guessing, playing small, wondering if I'd missed out on something everyone else knew or if I was enough. At a few pivotol lows, I asked Spirit for healing, guidance and help.

Spirit showed up in truly miraculous ways and led me to seminary to study my mind, emotions and soul. Out of my own transformation I created a tool called T.E.A.M. Work, which is the basis of everything I teach. It's like a mental chiropractic adjustment that aligns our thoughts to manifest more joy in our lives. Today I believe in myself. I believe in my extraordinary power as a mom. I'll teach you exactly how to get there, too.
