Men’s “Head to Heart” Challenge
Men, what do we do when the oil light comes on in our vehicle? Check the oil level and fill it up, right? What happens if we ignore it? The engine seizes up and we break down. We have a built in oil light as well, it’s called “emotional pain”, ignore it for too long and we’ll find ourselves broken down. That’s what happened to me 10 years ago.
Divorced with 3 little girls, bankrupt, and emotionally shattered. I was taught by our culture that emotional pain was something to man up and push through but it’s actually just an indicator that we are running low on something we need. I ignored my “oil light” for so long I became numb to what was really going on inside me.
Over the last 10 years I’ve spent thousands of hours and dollars searching for tools to help me reconnect to my heart, Identify what I’m feeling, and how to articulate it. It’s out of this journey I created the “Head to Heart” Challenge. Over 6 weeks we’ll cover 6 tools and unpack 1 tool each week.
I think it’s amazing what we accomplish each week given life’s demands; work, marriage, kids, friendships, hobbies, we still even manage to squeeze in a weekend adventure. When we take some time to address our hearts all of these things get better, easier, deeper, and richer. If you are ready to set aside some time to look at what’s going on under the hood of your heart, regardless of where you are on your emotional health journey, let’s do this.
It’s going to be fun.
It’s going to be painful.
It’s going to be worth it.
