Tez Talks #22- "Leaning In To Discomfort"


Tez Talks #22 - Leaning In To Discomfort - today, our girl Tez openly and honestly communicates how our mind has the tendency to take us to a habitual place of comfort and the 'known' and what that looks like when difficulties or change happen and / or are needed. She beautifully expresses how we are creatures of habit and how to work through and embrace discomfort and the ebs and flows of sorrow and joy.

Who has the most Instagram followers and likes on their photos is the new way of figuring out who is “most liked” at school. So is it really so far fetched to think that the new phrase for the growing generation is “don’t judge a person by their Instagram page?”
