In this episode, we discuss the merits of keeping a journal, and the styles of journals we like to keep – whether they are shared or private, electronic or paper, and how reviewing them periodically can help us identify patterns, especially those that need to change. Also how surprising it is to think that you’ve changed and then discover how much you haven’t.
In this episode, we wade into the difficult emotions of guilt and shame. What are the differences? Is there ever a redeeming purpose to these feelings? How do they each relate to embarrassment? How do we reconcile the inner sacred with the rest of our messy lives? There may be no easy formula to unravel the pain of loss, body image struggles, and the shadow side of perfectionism, but at least there is the Zen of figure modeling.
