EPISODE 86

Rebuilding Your Identity & Creating a Lifestyle of Bravery with Emily Ann Peterson
Emily Ann Peterson - The Coiuragemakers Podcast

Hello Couragemakers and welcome to episode 86 of The Couragemakers Podcast! A quick update before we get into today’s show, there’s going to be no Couragemakers episode next week as it’s a bank holiday here in the UK and me and Mr. Meg are moving to Liverpool! Things have been more than slightly chaotic lately and I’m looking forward to getting back to weekly episodes every Monday!

So, for today’s show, I’m chatting to Emily Ann Peterson. Emily is a is a singer-songwriter, creative consultant, and author of Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous and host of the Bare Naked Bravery Podcast. Emily writes for people who struggle to remember what hope feels like and sings to those who yearn for something secret. She speaks to those who are done being bored and crave all things beautiful, strong, sacred, and sensual. Her goal is to inspire a global resonance and magnanimous community through the marriage of art and whole-person development.

In this episode, Emily shares her story of being diagnosed with a degenerative neurological hand tremor, which forever altered her two-decade livelihood as a cellist/cello teacher. Emily shares how this shifted her identity and caused her to become really curious about what bravery is.

We dive into the difference between actively processing and wallowing, how Emily has carved what she calls her ‘buffet of self employment’ and Emily’s 12 ingredients of bravery.

We have a great conversation about the subjectivity of bravery and comparing our bravery to someone else’s bravery, the grieving process that encompasses a huge change in our identity and what has helped Emily in her journey.

This is a fantastic episode for anyone going through a period of transition, re-thinking their identity and for anyone for needs a dose of bare naked bravery. I love how Emily describes her lifestyle of bravery, and I think this episode will get you thinking about how you can start to design your own!

Enjoy the show!

ABOUT MEG & THAT HUMMINGBIRD LIFE

Meg Kissack

I’m Meg and I’m the host of Couragemakers and founder of That Hummingbird Life. I’m an INFJ creative and multipassionate who has a bit of a notebook and post-it note obsession, loves foot-stomping country music and likes her hot chocolate with way too much chocolate.

I started Couragemakers because I wanted to create a platform for passionate and unconventional women to have honest conversations and to share their stories, struggles and dreams. The intention behind this podcast is to inspire and encourage creative and mission-driven women to live a wholehearted life and follow the beat of their drum.

When I’m not recording episodes, writing bullshit-free, very vulnerable and encouraging Sunday emails to fellow couragemakers (join the party here!) or making new friends with the wonderful guests, you can find me working on all manners of magic over at That Hummingbird Life. THL is the online home for unconventional creatives and multipassionates who want to show up unapologetically and intentionally as who they are, and really own, live and share their many stories. It’s made for couragemakers who have so much great shit to give the world and want to leave their mark but have too much self doubt standing in the way!
