Many women I talk with discuss how certain colors make them feel, and I want to explore this topic today. Specifically, what does picking out a nail color have to do with living an authentic and brave life?
In this episode, I look at the messaging I was raised with about spending money on having my nails done, having the right color picked out, and how others may see me. That’s a lot of pressure for picking out a color to put on my nails for a few weeks. So why then does it cause so much anxiety for me?
Sometimes we have to do some things that make us uncomfortable, because of our silly internal rules that we don't even realize we have. We have to challenge them, we have to move past our comfort zone. Sometimes, we just have to let ourselves be who we are, and for me, today, that’s wearing orange nails.
I hope this episode and its message helps you on your way to living authentically, and aids you in feeling good while manifesting all that it is you desire!
