Does self-acceptance mean no self-improvement? When do we lean into self-development practices and when do we just accept ourselves as we are? In this solo episode, Krista shares tangible steps on how to balance self-love + self-improvement because—spoiler—the two ways of being can co-exist.
When you love yourself, there’s a vibrancy to your energy that supports you to live a productive life, i.e. you might give back to your community, spend your free time in nature or leave an impact on your family and friends.
The idea that we need to control or manage who we are, so that we don’t overeat, spend an excess amount of time on our phones or stay in our homes for days on end is interesting to think about and a topic Krista doesn’t hold back on.
“The ego, and especially the spiritual ego, can really prioritize the more difficult things that it can stay within the mind than the things that are actually going to take a longer time and be a harder route.” – Krista Williams on Almost 30 Podcast
