Boundaries are something I’ve found challenging my whole life. And I guess one of those things that I could examine for eternity and never know the real reason why, right?
In fact, I wrote an article a few years back about boundaries with some of my frustrations and lessons along the way.
It’s starting to feel like boundaries are a life long journey.
But this episode is about what’s been going on for me lately, from a bit of a backstory into the past few years and my poor somewhat neglected nervous system, to what that means today and now in my business – with some new ideas, changes, and coming back to alignment.
Listen To The Boundaries, Human Messiness, and Taking Care Of You episode here:
In this episode, I talk about:
- The last few years and how the old nervous system doesn’t quite bounce back in unprecedented times (and what I’m doing about my own nervous system)
- Safety versus stepping back into familiarity thinking that’s safe (and how to tell the difference)
- Some changes happening in my business as a result of that.
- How I have come to understand boundaries and the way I’m trying to navigate that messiness on a daily business whilst still showing up for my business and my clients.
- And so much more!
