Creating Your Personal Compass & Leaving a Mark with Rebecca Thering

Hello Couragemakers and welcome to another wonderful episode of The Couragemakers Podcast!

This week I’m so happy to share with you my conversation with Rebecca Thering.

Originally from Wisconsin, USA, Rebecca has lived in Spain, South Korea, and most recently France. She’s a fan of snail mailing, writing, taking wander walks, slow travel, creating, unplugging, minimalism, and enjoying everyday moments. Taking life a moment at a time, she’s following her personal compass and the light of Alexandra Franzen and Candace Rose Rardon to see where she ends up next!

In this episode, Rebecca shares her story, from living abroad teaching english to her personal sabbatical and creating a personal compass.

In this episode were really dive into what it means to live by your values, how to leave your mark and the importance of thanking people who have made an impact on you.

We have great conversations about bringing more humanity to the internet, disconnecting and taking time to reflect as well as the power of following your curiosity.

It’s also full of much needed reminders to all of us – to take the time to thank people who have made a difference to our lives, to catch the small moments and to remember that we will never know the full extent of the impact that we make or who we’re inspiring.

I had so much fun chatting to Rebecca and I know you’re going to get so much out of this episode.

Rebecca has so many stories and so much practical advice and I know her real life examples will help you add more intention and courage into your own life.

Be sure to check out Rebecca’s free printable How To Make A Personal Compass zine to make your own personal compass! (Link is in the show notes) We’d love to see what’s on yours!

Here’s to being messy, imperfect and complicated humans!

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!
