Dance Boss Podcast

Jun 3, 2021

Uncomfortable is where my biggest growth happens.

It’s the icky, “f**k this is hard⁣,” messy, change provoking work.

You see, I used to be a people pleaser. I would fill up my calendar doing things I didn’t want to do, because I felt bad saying no.

I had to get uncomfortable. 

Starting to turn down things that didn’t align with my life and my goals was hard. But it’s like exercising a muscle. It got easier and easier the more I did it.

I learned that, it’s in our ability and acceptance of things being messy and uncomfortable, that we find freedom.

In episode #139 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I have a great conversation with Jennifer Aks-Neuman, founder of dance herStory, a collection of video diaries that help Womxn move life stories through their bodies with gestures instead of writing.

We dive into:

  • My experience going through the video diary process
  • Having the willingness to be messy and uncomfortable
  • And using movement and creativity to help us through emotions
