Awkward, uncomfortable and cathartic. In today's episode of The Hacking Happy Podcast I'm trying something different. I'm taking you inside my inner thoughts and opening up my journal to demonstrate the power of leaning into vulnerability and small acts of courage.

This felt awkward, uncomfortable and cathartic all at once. The tribe has spoken and asked me for hacks on being more courageous and I felt doing this was a great way to show you what it looks and feels like.

I share a recent event that triggered feelings of failure, low self-worth and shame (yes I have these moments!) and how I use journaling to process these feelings in a way that is constructive rather than destructive.

If this episode resonates, let me know via hello@hackinghappy.co as I’m keen to have a regular episode where I share an extract from my journal with the intent of helping others in a way that is raw and meaningful.
