Life’s hard. Just when you think you’re getting traction in one area, something else falls apart. A partner passes, a friend betrays your trust, you have cancer scare, a loved one suicides, you had an absent parent and now you’re raising your own kids. Somewhere you have to make a choice. Do you collapse? Or do you find your brave and keep moving forward?
I’ve spent the last 18 years covering stories about life from all around the world. The one thing I’ve noticed in all those years and across all those stories is how unknowingly brave the everyday human is. On my new show, BRAVE JOURNEYS™ … with TAMMI FARADAY – which is being produced in collaboration with Jam Street Media (USA) – I have the privilege of sharing with incredible people who’ve found their inner brave – often in the darkest hours – and navigated life with incredible passion and purpose.
BRAVE JOURNEYS™ is a no-holds barred podcast featuring intimate conversations with remarkable people – each with colourful and complicated histories – who reflect on their journeys and share stories of bravery to which we can all laugh, cry and ultimately relate.
Everything is fair game. Nothing is off the table. Relationships, politics, spirituality, sex, careers, identity, friendship, the elusive quest for achieving “balance”, kids, aging, mental & physical health, fears, insecurities, trauma, leaning in, being leant upon, responsibilities, finding meaning, childcare, childlessness, financial woes, grief, loneliness, impostor syndrome, poker faces and wellbeing.
At its heart, BRAVE JOURNEYS™ is about Vulnerability. Transparency. Confusion. It’s about dispensing with the curated lives that make others’ miserable…and ourselves feeling anxious and less than. It’s about Authenticity. Integrity. Flaws. Failures. Learnings. It’s about going deep and not shying away from pain. It’s about being good enough. It’s about gratitude. It’s about disappointment and heartache. It’s about hope. But ultimately, BRAVE JOURNEYS™ is about showing up, dusting yourself off and getting back up again to live your best life.
If you love getting up close and personal and you’re fascinated by the human condition and what makes us (really) tick, come and find your inner brave with me.
