oops-chairs-in-pool-edited

Ever been caught in a "Loop of Doom" constantly spinning through what-if scenarios...

...but then something wacky or random happens and the looping immediately stops? YEP, me too.

This month in The School of Bravery we're focusing on that exact bravery ingredient: Improvisation. The strong skill of improvisation can help soothe Loops of Doom and possibly quiet them altogether!

I don't know about you, but 2020 can go take a long walk off a short pier.

The backstory... 2020 started with my attempts to distract myself from feeling dangerously raw and vulnerable. The previous year felt like a rollercoaster and I was losing trust in the world, life, people...

My mom's emergency brain surgery, glioblastoma brain cancer diagnosis, watching her learn to walk, eat, do radiation, chemo... Travel from TN to CO to TN to WY to CO to WY to TN to almost immediately leaping into 45…

Youtube - Vision of Possibility 2020 - The School of Bravery - EmilyAnnPeterson.com

We have such an exciting episode for you today! To coincide with last month's bravery ingredient of Vision of Possibility, I wanted to introduce you to someone very special: Danielle Hope Diamond

Danielle reached out to me to potentially become a guest expert of The School of Bravery and get interviewed on the podcast. However, after getting to know her very briefly, it became clear that she should be much more than just a one-time guest on our little podcast.

ps041: Post-Bravery Brain Mush & Book Excitement

Post-Bravery_Brain_Mush_&_Book_Excitement

Last week we released my book "Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous" into the world and it was a smashing success! Yay! However, last week turned my brain to absolute mush, which is normal for what happens to your body after you do something brave (like publishing a book, throwing a concert, appearing on television - all of which I did last week!)

Take a listen to hear all about it!

ps004: Big Announcements & How to Make Them

Big Announcements & How to Make Them

When you've got a huge announcement, how do you go about making it?

Who do you tell first? What role does privacy and intimacy play in this decision? Is it like throwing spaghetti and seeing what sticks? or more like passing notes in class?

I've got a big announcement to make (you'll hear it below.) There will be more details revealed as time unfolds, but for now these issues of intimacy, privacy, and over-exposure are top of my mind...
