As always, a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners, thanks for being a part of this extended community of contagious encouragement.
I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell
HOW TO LOVE YOURSELF WHEN YOU FEEL LOST:
- Recognize that you don’t love yourself – know that there is a problem.
- Ask yourself why you aren’t treating yourself with love, what are you punishing?
- Reestablish your value – know that you are worthy of love.
- Spend time with God. He is love.
- 5. Write a 100-Love-Me-List and start looking at yourself differently.
- Ask others to tell you why they love you – seek affirmation and write it down.
- Remember that you define yourself and your future – not anything someone has said about you and not anything that has kept you back circumstantially in the past.
- Refuse to feel sorry for yourself – open your heart to the love that surrounds you.
10 ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO TO FIND JOY AGAIN:
- Move your body – physiological movement activates joy in the brain.
- Go be kind to others – the first beneficiary of kindness is the person who delivers it themselves.
- Get outside and disconnect from online pressures.
- Color and get creative.
- Find a way to spend time with children.
- Do what you loved to do as a kid (I’m playing basketball again)
- Go play with an animal
- Get involved in a cause greater than yourself.
- Take an adventure – travel, explore, read.
- Express gratitude
HOW TO TALK ABOUT FEELING LOST:
Things to say if you feel lost:
I feel like I’m in a fog of life and don’t feel fully connected to myself and my heart – it makes me feel numb and disengaged, and I don’t like that. Can you help me talk through some of these feelings of overwhelm and just share with me why you love me or why I matter?
My head and my heart aren’t aligning right now and it makes me feel unsettled and anxious. I know I want to live differently and so I am asking people close to me to help me “find myself again” so that I can regain my self-awareness and clarity and get my heart back fully into living life to the fullest again.
Things to ask someone you love to comfort them and to start a deeper conversation:
I noticed you have seemed a little disengaged and distracted, is everything okay and would it help to just openly talk about it?
You mentioned you’ve been down recently and have been feeling overwhelmed – I’ve felt that way before too, and it feels like you are walking through life lost, which makes everything all the more overwhelming. I learned that I needed to reconnect with myself, my worth and my vision for life in order to regain my passion and my real energy again, and I did that by talking through it all with someone. Please know that how you feel is normal, but that it is not a way to live and that there is a way to change how you feel – I would love to be a safe sounding board for you to explore your emotions and to help you see yourself how other people see you.

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
I have been listening to your podcast for awhile now. Actually, I downloaded your couch to marathon training plan years ago-that’s how I originally found out about you. I have found your advice to be very helpful.
I have been praying for about 6 months now for a change in my career. I’ve been following your advice in the podcast generally every week now for about 6 months. Now-I was presented with two viable alternatives in 24 hours. One opportunity allows me to go into business for myself with some financial backing from my parents. The other is being an employee but with a boss with a solid reputation and the opportunity to become partner. I would like a podcast (and also advice) on how when presented with multiple options to decide which one to choose? I know this is nothing to complain about, but I want to do this carefully.
