Pivot. It’s a word we’ve all likely used ad-nauseum in the past two years, yet it’s an empowering topic of discussion for Melissa and Barb in today’s episode.
Join us today as Barb and Melissa share their pivot stories, and demonstrate the power behind having the ability to ‘turn on a dime’ when things don’t go our way.
Melissa tells the story of her daughter Maya and a life-shifting moment when tragedy became an opportunity to make the best of an awful situation. [00:01:47]
Barb shares her own story about adjusting to disappointment, recognizing how much grace can exist when we simply lean into what is happening and figure out what there is to do next. [00:10:39]
Barb reminds us that she could have easily become frustrated and judged herself, but that the mind is designed to give us alternative ways to deal with the unexpected—it’s designed to literally pivot. [00:13:05]
Melissa has a moment of incredulous curiosity as to why Barb didn’t just take extreme action to get what she wanted. Barb explains. [00:15:40]
