Women What Whistle

This podcast is about not falling in line or fading away. Stories of bravery, accounts of resilience and even tales of sheer bloody-mindedness. It’s about finding our voice, and sometimes our brave, through the stories of other women who’ve had to find theirs.

Everything in our life comes from what we believe is true and those truths inform our decisions and behaviour on a daily basis. What if however, those truths aren’t actually truth? It’s time to start confronting the fears that whisper in our ears and hold us back each day and start seeing where they have been affecting our relationships, our work, our choices and our future.

It might be that you’re afraid of asking why the relationship broke, or afraid of showing your face without make up on, or asking your boss for a promotion, or of becoming a parent because you don’t know if you’ll get it right. It could be you are scared of being on your own, of embracing a new opportunity, fearful of moving forwards as hanging on to the past somehow feels safer. Afraid of putting on your trainers and being seen out on a run, of trying in case you fail, of telling someone your true feelings, or of working to save a relationship and saying sorry in case you are shunned – the list is endless.

We all have things we hold back on because we are fearful of not knowing the outcome, so ask the question, what’s the worst that could happen? If we start facing what we are afraid of rather than running, we might start to realise that we are stronger than we think, wiser than we know and far more able than we ever dreamt possible.
