Does your internal monologue ever ask you oh-so-helpful questions like, Oh my God, what is everyone going to think?? That internalized fear of judgement can freeze us in our tracks and stop us from doing what we know we need to do.
Brilliant badass though she may be (and trust me: she is), Kimra Luna is no stranger to those sinking feelings of shame. Growing up as a punk rocker in small-town Idaho, she’s endured her fair share of judgmental comments and emerged as a tattooed mother of 3 boys and wildly successful personal branding and online business strategist. But it’s not all fishnets, piercings, and vibrant hair dye. Kimra is refreshingly candid about all the BS she’s had to burn to get to where she is today — in fact, she’s grateful for it.
“I’ve been judged in ridiculous ways, and you know what? It doesn’t matter. I do things even though I’ll be judged.”
If you’ve seen her Instagram, you already know: Kimra dresses how she wants, she shows up how she wants, and she is firmly grounded in exactly who she is. It’s easier to imagine her grabbing the mic at a punk show than frozen in fear, unable to get out of bed. But from body shame to admitting to the world that her seemingly perfect marriage was coming to an end, she has been there. And for her, the way forward was approaching those fears, pen in hand, and journaling through them.
In this episode, Kimra will tell you all about:
- Limiting beliefs and how they can show up YEARS after you think you’ve defeated them
- Hyper self-awareness as a superpower (psst: you don’t need a bite from a radioactive spider to activate it)
- Doing the damn thing even when you know people are going to judge you
- How journaling helps bridge the gap between irrational fears and reality, asking questions like, Hey… is this even real or factual? Is it going to harm me?
Are you dying to tell that little voice in your head to calm the F down? Done caring about what everyone else is going to think? Ready to take that next big step, judgement and shame be damned? Well strap on those hiking boots and put some wine in your Camelbak, folks, because we’re going to cover some serious ground in this episode.
