Never Take a Sick Day Again By Doing This One Thing Instead [Guest Post]

Enjoy this guest post from Jenny Collins, my blog manager and content director at Live Your Truth. 

Two weeks ago I got sick. Not just for a day. But for a week.

And not the kind of under the weather-ness where you can soldier on with daily life. No, it was the knock-down, flat-on-the-couch, can’t-do-anything kind.

I don’t get sick often, but as one of my good friends once noticed, when I do, it’s intense and abrupt—true to my TYPE 3 energy.

But now I don’t take a traditional sick day. I started doing this instead and it changes my perspective so I get get to feeling better faster!

Did a Childhood Embarrassment Shut Down the Song You’re Meant to Sing? [Guest Post]

A guest post by Jenny Collins, Blog Manager for The Carol Blog and Content Director at Live Your Truth. 

You have a song you are meant to sing.

Each of us does.

Whether it’s literal or figurative, your song is your voice—that thing you’re uniquely designed to express and release in this world.

But shame, embarrassment and other circumstances in our early years seem to find a way of shutting our song down before we ever get a chance to hit the high notes.

Last summer, Carol Tuttle and I were in a meeting online talking about songs that would be on the soundtrack to your life, and at some point, I asked her if she liked the song “Brave” by Sara Bareilles.

She didn’t recall it off hand so despite my almost life-long apprehension about singing in front of people, I nervously crackled out the lines to the chorus:

Say what you wanna say/And let the words fall out/Honestly, I wanna see you be brave.

“You have a good voice!” Carol responded. “Do you sing?”

“No!” I said emphatically. “Only karaoke with family or with a group. And never by myself in front of people.”

“Why?” she asked.

I knew why. Or rather, I remembered why.
