I turn right at ^this light^ almost every day on my way to my hot yoga studio only blocks away from my house. That is/was my favorite mural in East Nashville.

But Monday night at 1am, I was huddled over my iPhone watching a live Twitter video stream of the local weather report. I was being directed to "go get a helmet, put on shoes, do not go outside, go to the basement, find shelter NOW. Do not wait. You have 30 seconds. This is not a drill!"

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

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.

  1. I can't exert the same physical effort without having my right hand go totally wonky on me. (Thanks Essential Tremor.)
  2. I also can't depend 100% on my physical energy, at least not while my hypothyroidism isn't getting the lab tests we'd all like.

Throw in more than a few depressive days and enough naps for 4 newborn babies, and you've got a very interesting work-life...

Ellis Delaney - The School of Bravery - EmilyAnnPeterson.com.png

I first heard about Ellis, because one of her patrons suggested that I would REALLY love her songwriting. I immediately became a patron myself. Then later met Ellis Delaney in person at the Rocky Mountain Song School & Folk Festival. She taught a really excellent workshop on planning, project management, and undefended living as an artist. In that workshop, she briefly mentioned her ADHD and I just knew she would be a perfect guest expert for The School of Bravery.

This month in...
