Amber Rae is an artist, writer, creative, and curious human being – and joins the girls this week for an in-depth, candid conversation about the stories we tell ourselves. If you’ve ever found yourself in a job, a situation, or a relationship where you’ve felt stuck or weighed down, Amber has been there too and has written a beautiful, relatable book to help others ignite their curiosity and move through their fear.

 

 

Choose Wonder Over Worry: Move Beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential is helping people all over the world become unstuck and conquer their fears, and we are so excited to share it with #ALMOST30NATION. Keep your eyes on Instagram (@almost30podcast) because we’ll also be giving away three copies of the book!

 

Another thing that kind of blew us away about this conversation was the level of vulnerability and honesty that Amber shares. She’s already caused us to start thinking more about being really honest and open with our feelings so that we can expand and grow, in our relationships and just our lives in general, and we know she’ll help all of you grow as well! We chat about…

  • Learning to listen to your intuition

  • Numbing yourself with pharmaceuticals + overcoming an addiction to Adderall

  • Losing your father as a child

  • Our relationship with death

  • We always find the evidence for what we choose to believe

  • The unique process Amber went through to write her book

  • Becoming aware of the story you tell yourself

  • What scientific insights Amber learned while researching her book

  • Fear of being radically raw + open

  • Open relationships

  • Dropping the shame around doing things differently

  • Being a shadow artist: someone who is behind other people, helping to elevate and push them forward because they’re afraid to step into the light
