Episode 74: Retha Nichole

Retha Nichole joins me for Episode 74. She is a life coach, the podcast host of My Light Still Shines and mom to three boys. I’m so thankful that this woman reached out to me over a year and a half ago because she has been such an encourager to me and has pushed me to be a more authentic me.

I think you are going to be really encouraged by our conversation. We talk about knowing you’re worth—how to discover it, ways to reevaluate it in different seasons and things that can destroy it. 

How many of you struggle to know the real you? I totally feel like a middle schooler these days because I’m really asking the question, “Who am I?” @@It is never too late to discover who you are@@. And I loved her advice to treat your worth and identity as something that is almost fluid. Meaning, whenever you face a life changing event or whenever you approach a milestone in life, take that as a cue to ask some questions about your identity.

Takeaways From Our Conversation:

  • If you don’t know who you are then you are just taking what other people are telling you as the truth about you. Figure out your baseline for things. What is your baseline for why you eat what you eat? What is your baseline for why you get up when you do? What is your baseline for what you do?

  • Sometimes we are doing things in motherhood that we don’t like to do so we think we hate motherhood. Maybe you just aren't supposed to be doing those things. Are there things that you don’t have to do?

  • Ask yourself when life change happens: What’s different about me with this life changing event?

  • Ask yourself: Who are you? Then whatever the answer is stay true to that. Stay true to yourself. Don’t allow people and things to determine who you are.
