Amy’s 4 Things

LIVE FROM WICHITA: Living Life. Getting Unstuck. Making A Move. Showing Up.

Our first ever LIVE podcast taping went down in Wichita and we had the best time!! It was so awesome to have listeners from all over Kansas join us and even cooler that some traveled from Texas, California, Oklahoma, Colorado, and West Virginia to be a part of this special evening! Amy is on a journey to really LIVE LIFE, to GET UNSTUCK, to MAKE A MOVE, and assess how she wants to SHOW UP in the world, so those are the 4 things she talked about:

 

LIVING LIFE: What does it look like to really live your life? (ft. Dierks Bentley’s thoughts on his song ‘Living’)

 

GETTING UNSTUCK with @KatDefatta: What have you not been able to admit to yourself? (ft.Walker Hayes’ thoughts on his song ‘Beer In The Fridge’)

 

MAKING A MOVE with @CristiDozier: What is the next right step for you? (ft. Nicolle Galyon’s thoughts on her song ‘Winner’)

 

SHOWING UP: How do you want to be remembered? (ft. Little Big Town’s thoughts on their song ‘Rich Man’)

Journaling has been a huge part of Amy’s healing the last couple of years, so we are very grateful to have writing prompts for each thing from writing expert & author, @AllyFallon

 

LIVING LIFE: Write a hypothetical journal entry for a day that you’re really living your life the way you want to live it. Example: What do you do on that day, who do you talk to, what do you not do, where are you, how do you feel about yourself, what decisions would you make, what conversation would you have? Take 5 minutes to imagine this day and write it as if it already happened.

 

GETTING UNSTUCK: What is keeping you stuck and what it might look like to let go of it?

 

MAKING A MOVE: Make a list of 10 things that would feel like winning to you even though it might look like losing to someone else?

 

SHOWING UP: Imagine this is your last day on earth – who do you want by your side – and what do you hope they remember about you?

Books have also been helpful during this time, so Amy put together book recommendations for each thing as well:
