In our opinion, the word “grace” is underrated. And, we don’t mean grace in the sense of being “graceful” (though, that is lovely, as well). We mean to GIVE ourselves “grace.” To bestow COMPASSION upon ourselves. To allow us to FORGIVE ourselves. To let our own self-hate and flagellation be replaced with one word. Grace can mean many things, but this is a POWERFUL and USEFUL way to interpret the word. Next time you are mad at yourself, beating yourself up, worried about repercussions at work or with family members or friends, remember– give yourself “GRACE.” You are human. KJ Nasrul is back for a third time on TAWFT! (We LOVE her) discussing the beauty and transformative power of this word.Allow yourselves grace from your busy schedules and listen!QUOTES: I didn’t realize what GRACE was until I truly had to dig down and find it for myself.Grace means compassion, space, kindness, and willingness.I gave myself permission to feel whatever came to the surface.About the Guest:Kimberly "KJ" Nasrul is a licensed psychotherapist and musician nursing an obsession with words, and a gift for making grilled cheese sandwiches. She helps healers and essential frontline workers recover their resilient stories via music, art, and compassionate conversations so that they can continue to uplift and heal their communities. When she's not planning her next traveling adventure, KJ can be found on her podcast, Stories of Astonishing Light, jamming with musicians, artists, and trailblazers about creativity and mental wellness accessibility for all communities. She is a Disaster Mental Health Responder (Psychological First Aid) and Quality Improvement Specialist for health privacy.She is also an avid roller skater.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly..."-Theodore Roosevelt, 1910About the Show:There’s a Word For That! is a weekly podcast that centers around a different word or expression each episode.
