This week on The Practical Minimalists podcast I had a heart-to-heart with hosts Heather and Eryn. You'll love these two American women and their work. I promise! Click on the link above to check out their podcast. You can read about Heather and Eryn here and follow them here on Instagram.
We talked about playing big and playing small.
You guys, we'd need a world of coffees at my kitchen table to talk about this. (And possibly some of my world's best chocolate cake.)
In your life and mine, why are so many people stuck on playing small? Where did it come from?
- Are we afraid of being criticised?
- Do we have imposter syndrome?
- Do women eat the lie that we should be small and quiet and agreeable? And not take up space?
On the podcast, we get real and honest about...
- parenting fails
- hiding our light
- playing big
- starting where we are
- and JACARANDA SNOW, my new picture book about kids and flow and growth mindset.
Today I want to whisper in your ear what I said to Heather and Eryn, "We need you to be as big as possible. The world needs you to shine."
You can listen to our chat on the The Practical Minimalists podcast by clicking on this link, or you subscribe on iTunes. Heather and Eryn's show is about so much more than living a minimalist lifestyle! If you want a sneak peek of the writer-friend-vintage-collector I mention, Jules Van Mil, you can see her vintage jewellery here. Enjoy!
Love, Catherine x
P.S. The jacarandas are snowing in Sydney!! (Here's the story-behind-the-story!) For all you beautiful Canadians and Americans, this is a jacaranda tree. Sending big hugs to my talented photographer-friend, Doug Frost...and to all of you.
