#88 A Journey of Self-Worth and Discovery with Phyllis Myers

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I’d like life to look like when this is all over.

Admittedly, this pandemic seems to shine a light in the places we’ve been ignoring far too long. It’s uncomfortable and it makes me question my confidence. 

Who am I?

What do I value?

How do I want to show up for myself and my family?

Where do I concentrate my time and energy and resources right now?

What is fair to expect of myself right now?

A few weeks ago, we wrapped up teaching our first Teentography kids virtual class and we're starting teaching another one this week.

With the help of these kids, I find the answers to those questions coming into clarity. I’ve learned from these kids, who are picking up a camera and sharing their hearts with me, how to lean into creativity and let go of expectations

These teens have breathed life into me on the days where I just couldn’t for myself.

And they're helping me remember there isn't anything I need to DO or anyone I need to BE in order to claim worth and confidence.

As we travel deeper into our theme of worth this month at Momtography and I think about our Teentography students and my own extreme awkwardness and resistance to feeling worthy at that age, I decided to bring a really special guest onto the show today.

My best friend, Phyllis Myers.

A person I've know since were teens. Someone who is extroverted, and outgoing, and bold, and not afraid to make friends wherever she goes. And one of a handful of people on the planet who knows my own personal struggles with confidence and worth.

Today Phyllis and I deep dive into our past selves, our unique struggles with worth, and how self-discovery and our unique friendship has allowed us to grow and support each other in coming back to confidence when we're feeling challenged.

Listen to the full episode to hear:

  • Why I’m so passionate about helping other women with there struggle with self-worth
  • How someone discovers who they are and how they know they’ve made that discovery
  • How I give Phyllis credit for helping me break out of my shell and become the person that I am today
  • Who I was during high school and the roll our friendship played during those years
