Recovering People Pleaser, Rob Shepherd

moving the podcast – interview from July 31, 2013

~~~

Rob Shepherd is one of those names I’ve seen around almost since the moment I started blogging. I’d read many of his posts over those years, but didn’t know very much about him. Then guest Ricky Anderson suggested I talk to Rob, saying what a great guy he was and how he wasn’t afraid of anything.

I found out Rob actually is afraid of some things, after all. We talk about that, the balancing act between husband, father and pastor, and his first book, about fighting his people-pleasing addiction.

"So, when you start to understand how God has created you and really start plugging into the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence to do some of those things that used to be scary to you." ~ Rob

“So when you start to understand how God created you and really start plugging in
to the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence
to do some of those things that used to be scary to you.”

Magic Man Ricky Anderson

moving the podcast – interview from May 29, 2013

~~~

I loved this chat. I was so unprepared, my first question was “Ricky is nice”. But the magical Ricky kept the conversation flowing! We talked about fatherhood, being a blogger vs a writer, his work-in-progress and our fear of failure. And then he did a magic trick.

I’m still trying to figure it out.

The sun doesn’t rise instantaneously; it comes up little by little by little.

I think the key for us is to learn to trust the little by little.

the Infinite Monkey speaks: on body shame

Random brilliance from across the internet…

If you’re not the weight that you want to be – if you’re fat or if you’re thin, whatever – it doesn’t matter. If you’re embarrassed or ashamed about your body, you don’t have to be. You’ve got to start living now in the body that you have today. And from that, you will gain confidence.
