Episode 5: Transition to Truth available NOW ob Soundcloud and iTunes!
Transition is hard for everyone. It is the necessary evil that takes us from who we are to who we're becoming. My friend Jordie Lynn Washburn understands this painful, uncomfortable, yet fulfilling leap of faith better than most.
Her recent transition from the man the world knew her as to the woman who she was always meant to be was not easy or glamorous. However, on the other side, she found joy, love, laughter, rock n roll, and self empowerment in Santa Cruz, CA's artist community.
Today, we talk about what it took to get past that overwhelming fear, self doubt, shame, and sadness. Jordie worried that friends and loved ones who have known her for years (myself included) would not know how to embrace this newfound person, with her big, beautiful grin and vivacious giggle.
What she found, when she opened her eyes to the truth, was unbelievable: Love. Compassion. Strength. Encouragement. We hope to pass this big, juicy ball of love on to you today. No matter what you're dealing with, you are not alone. The world needs your truth. Transition into it, despite the fear. Just ask Jordie. It's TOTALLY worth it.
We can all stand to be a bit more courageous, and we can thank today's guest for kickstarting our motivation!
Jordie Lynn's dreamy band, Moonbeaux, is featured in this episode (stick around for extra tunes at the end).
Tell Jordie how sexy her drumming is! No, seriously. Don't do that. But watch live Moonbeaux performances at Vimeo anyhow. : )
