How does your self-talk hold you back from taking action in your life? How does that affect the world around you? In this episode, we talk about why shifting your self-talk is about way more than self-help, why it isn’t just about changing your OWN life, and how to get yourself off of the sidelines and ‘into the arena.’

WANTcast Episode 104: Experiential Longing

the WANTcast

You know to call someone when you miss them. But what if what you miss isn’t a person that’s able to be dialed on the phone – or an event that’s about to be rescheduled? What do you do when it’s the smaller or less-specific things you miss, like sitting outside with a cup of coffee or going on a vacation (*any* vacation)?

In this episode of the WANTcast, we discuss the concept of what we call experiential longing: the feeling of missing experiences, routines, habits, and situations.

Karen Walrond is the kind of person you just want to know. You just want to soak in some of her light and magic, because maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can use it to help make your own. As someone who has worked extensively with Dove Real Beauty and Brené Brown, Karen is in the business of helping you shine your unique light, no matter WHAT the world throws at you or tells you you need to be.

Karen is a leadership consultant, attorney, speaker, author and photographer. She is a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, having been trained in Brené Brown’s work on vulnerability, courage, shame-resilience, and worthiness, including the teachings of Dr. Brown’s bestselling books, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong & Dare to Lead. In addition, Karen has been trained in positive psychology coaching with the Wholebeing Institute, using the science of well-being and research-based assessments and interventions to bring about greater satisfaction, purpose and fulfillment in life. Karen helps clients from all walks of life discover their own their gifts and superpowers, develop their leadership skills, and learn how to use them in a way that allows them both to thrive, and change the world.

Karen‘s bestselling book, The Beauty of Different, is a chronicle of imagery and portraiture combined with written essays and observations on authenticity, courage, and the concept that what makes us different makes us beautiful.  She is also the creator of Chookooloonks.com, an award-winning and inspirational source for living with intention, creativity and adventure.

In this episode we talk about grief and the “phases we go through when bad things happen,” holding space for each other in a way that feels true, the intersection of JOY and ACTIVISM, how Karen uses her practice of Positive Psychology to cultivate resilience within her clients and her self, and how to gracefully “not know.”
