TMM PODCAST EPISODE 111: Back from the Brink

I never thought of myself as an athlete.
And almost always I felt less than because I didn't participate in organized sports when I was young.
Back in high school, I took this class called, "Reading, Writing, and Running."
And even though I ran more than any other girl in the class, I still felt like I wasn't good enough.
I always thought I sucked.
Fast forward to when I started running again in my 50s...
I couldn't run for more than a minute at a time!
But I sucked at it until I was able to do one mile...
And now I'm running 5k races.
I like to say that anything worth doing is worth sucking at it first.
And the point I'm trying to make here is that you can do anything you put your mind to.
I talk more about that in today's episode with Hailima Yates who is the CEO and founder of Luv Mrk, a coaching company where she works with clients that embrace positive self-identity, inclusive and equitable work environment.
Hailima then details how she struggled from negative self-image and low self-esteem which led her to substance abuse and suicidal ideation, and how she came out of that place to change her mindset, finally value herself, stop her self-sabotaging, and make choices where she now lives a life that she has chosen throughout her adulthood.
During the podcast we talk about self-esteem, social justice, and racism, PLUS:
• Looking in the mirror and changing your narrative
• Hailima's suicide attempt and what led to it
• Her spiritual journey that helped change her thinking
• The importance of NOW
• Feeling the feelings
• How to be there for others who are hurting
