that ‘time is running out’ feeling

Did you know that the ‘time is running out’ feeling might just be an anxiety response? Typically when you’re wrestling with the idea of time you’re feeling OOC (the mentor way to saying: Out of Control). In today’s pep talk we talk about being out of control, how to move through the feeling of being OOC, and tips for staying present when you feel like time is moving too fast.

my mentor origin story

I LOVE an origin story. I deeply appreciate hearing about how someone got to where they’re at. I’m always searching for podcasts featuring someone’s backstory and in today’s pep talk, I share my own mini mentor story. I also give you some homework (not the hard kind) to help you think about your own story. Enjoy!

are you angry or are you resentful?

Are you mad or are you actually RESENTFUL? This is a question, I’ve asked my students lately. Resentment is not a word typically brought up by mentees, but it’s definitely present! In today’s pep talk, we chat about what resentment really is (mind blown), Brene Brown’s definition of the emotion, and a trick to knowing when you’re resentful and how to move through it.

give yourself a break

Many of my students have high expectations and end up being  super hard on themselves. I recently asked a mentee, “Do you feel like you deserve rest?” and she said, “Only if I’ve earned it.” That resonated big time. In this pep talk, I share the two areas I feel like we need to give ourselves breaks in, thoughts around what brings you energy and what takes it away, and a journal exercise to help you figure out what you need break from.
