Fog WomanNo doubt about it. Speaking Strong takes guts. I know that, because when I have digestive issues, it's very difficult for me to know what I mean, let alone say what I mean and mean what I say without being mean when I say it. 

Recently I had one of those crucial, seminal conversations on a day when my digestion wasn't working so well. Actually, it wasn't much of a conversation. Every word I heard led me to sink further into despair. It was like there was a mud wall around me, keeping me from hearing well or speaking. Confusion that probably would have been cleared in a moment on a better day got thicker and immobilizing.  

What did I do? I needed to back off and get clear before I could speak. It didn't take me too long to figure out that what I was hearing wasn't what she was saying. 

In the bigger picture, keeping your digestion healthy helps you SpeakStrong. I'm looking forward to having fewer of those disempowered moments as my digestion heals.

In the smaller picture, sometimes you have to wait for a fog to lift to move forward.  It's good to know when those moments are.
