036 - Own Your Fully Lived Life Space!!

036 - Own Your Fully Lived Life Space!!

Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency -  through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.

What:  Do you know yourself? Do you like yourself? Do you know what space you are meant and designed to occupy. Jen Hatmaker in her book Fierce, Free and Full of Fire writes “It is on us to insist on our space! The space that we are meant to occupy.”

So what: You are uniquely created and gifted to be who you are and own your space in the world. You are not meant to shape shift to the expectations of others. Are you what Jen Hatmaker terms Mega, Mezzo or Modest? We unpack what these terms mean and ask our listeners to embrace who they are and the gift to the world that they are when they “live to the very  edges of their space”!

Now what:  Dr. Merry asks us to consider what locus of control we are allowing to lead our lives. Do we lean toward an external locus of control that leaves us powerless and victims of our circumstances and environments or do we have a strong internal locus of control that helps us own our space. Growth happens when we lean into our internal locus of control. This is especially important in difficult circumstances. Merry asks us to look back and see what locus of control we have lived out of over the last 2 weeks.

Life Coach Gillian asks us to confirm with a trusted friend whether we are Mega, Mezzo or Modest and then challenges us to be conscious over the next week when we are dialing ourselves up or down to live up to others expectations of us rather than living in our own space.

Gillian and Merry throw down the Instagram hashtag challenge! Take pictures of yourself doing unique and fun activities, or anything that represents the “true you”, or anything that shows you living to the full edges of yourself. It can be a picture of yourself or something that represents you living a bold life. And then tag our Insta page, @thefullylivedlife, while using the hashtag: #ownyourFLLspace
