Have you ever felt bad about feeling bad?
We often feel shame for feeling anything negative. We think, “If I’m not happy, that means something is wrong with me.”
The truth is there’s no way to avoid negative feelings in life, but there are some things you can do to help yourself understand them and even embrace them.
In this episode I’m joined by Zakia Haughton, CEO and business systems extraordinaire, to talk about how getting truly in touch with your feelings can make everything in your life flow with more ease.

- Why she says that experimentation and curiosity has played a key role in her personal journey [5:12]
- The ways we can use nature to guide us through our “seasons” [10:41]
