Unfollow anybody who you're scrolling through their feed and it makes you feel yucky. I don't care if it's your mother in law or your best friend since you were 12. block that out. sorry, not sorry. This is how you learn to become unapologetically you and block out the noise that no longer serves you and or makes you feel bad about how you feel about something because it's in contradiction to what they believe

you're listening to the unapologetically unstoppable podcast, it's about going deep into who you are made to be. And following that, no matter what, where your calling is in the front seat, and fear, well, it's trying to stop you. But fuck that guy, and getting the tools and tips to become an unstoppable. I'm your host, Jeanette Peterson, where not too long ago, I had to find my calling. Here, you'll hear from me and other online experts on how to discover your calling, the steps to make it happen, and how to monetize it. I believe when we're unapologetic about our calling, we become an unstoppable expansive force. So let's get started.

Hey, girl, hey. So this weekend, I did a lot of thinking, okay. And because I've had a lot of space to do a lot of thinking, that normally means something's about to go down. You know, I've ever seen little more stark errors in beating the beast, where lifou is like, that's a dangerous pastime, talking about thinking. That's how I feel like, I can't, I can't be left alone to my own devices, y'all. Because things about to get crazy up in here. I don't know, I just can't leave me alone to think by myself. But I also think that's the only way to make change. I mean, you're a block out the noise, get quiet. I am a like Avid adhd-er, which means I have to be doing something at all times. Which means if I'm doing a jigsaw puzzle, it also means I'm listening to something or a show and or talking to my husband at the same time, my brain has to be going in 15 different directions. In order for me to even think clearly sometimes. Are you like that? Is that just me, it might just be me.
Jeanette Peterson 3:00
All that to say the times that I get the best downloads from the Holy Spirit from God about what I'm supposed to do is when I'm laying in bed about to go to sleep. dead quiet. There's no lights on. And I'm not even thinking about work. I'm just thinking of asleep. It is like monitor my head that's like Sleep, sleep sleep. And this just popped into my head. And that's when the best ideas come when I actually get quiet and laid out, which is weird, right? I think that's weird. Normally, okay, now normally, sometimes my brain will just be going in like 15 million directions of like, I need to do this, I do this I should, should, should should. And like all these things I should be doing or need to be doing or I'm laid on or whatever. They don't actually matter. But when I sit down, and I lay down, that's what things come to me. They're like, Oh, yes, this is good. Oh, yes, this is good. unexpectedly. I mean, I can't make this up. It's not something that I like, put in my head to come to my head. I don't know. It's just when I get quiet, and I just am not expecting anything. That's when things are coming to my head. So I encourage you this week to block out the noise. And when I say block up the noise, I mean block out the noise.

I am a huge fan of unfollow unfollow anybody who you're scrolling through their feed and it makes you feel yucky. I don't care if it's your mother in law or your best friend since you were 12. block that out, sorry. Not, sorry. This is how you learn to become unapologetically you am lockout the noise that no longer serves you and or makes you feel bad about how you feel about something because it's in contradiction to what they believe.
Jeanette Peterson 5:08
Which is okay. I don't know if you know this, but it's okay not to agree with everything your mother in law and or your best friend since you were five said or says you don't have you notified about it. You still have to agree. I'm talking about Facebook, in Instagram, wherever you wherever your feed leads you unfollow, and I'm talking about yucky ads to that make you feel gross on in the inside. I was like, scrolling this morning on Instagram. Because who doesn't do that? Before they start work? She's probably not healthy. Another subject. And it was like talking about like, yeah, what's his plastics or no don't have sound on either plastics or surgeon and she told me to get this screen this skin Firming Cream for my postpartum belly. And I was like, I almost clicked on it. From like, I don't actually have a problem with my body. I feel fine. In my body. There's some things I don't like about my body, meaning like, I wish I had more energy to do XY and Z. But I don't actually mind the way it looks. And measure thinking, do I mind the way it looks? Do I want to fly? No, I don't like why, why am I even thinking about stuff like that unfollow ad like get this ad out of here. I don't want to see this because this is making me feel insecure about something that I've already worked through.
Jeanette Peterson 6:36
And if I was in the middle of working through something like that, it would definitely be a trigger. So unfollow, unsubscribe, everything. I want you to think about this about people in your actual life to look at the last 10 people that you've called or texted with. And does this person bring me joy? Or does this person suck my joy? Sometimes it's like symbiotic or you suck a little joy, they bring you a little joy, right? I'm not talking about those people. I'm talking about 90% of the time when I interact with this person, I am drained after this conversation. I'm putting more energy into them than they are this relationship. They gotta go. I'm gonna talk about your husband. That's a therapy thing I'm talking about. Other people, I don't even care if it's your boss. If it's your boss, you need to have some some very big boundaries about how and when you talk to that person. So if all of a sudden I have to stop talking to you, girls, sometimes I just need to rest and relax. Get my mind. Right. And sometimes you might be triggering me. I don't know. Do you talk about your weight a lot. I don't want to hear that. I just can't hear that. I got a lot of weight issues. Okay, work through them. I can't, I don't want to go back there. It's like leading an alcoholic back to the well. I'm not going there. I know what I can handle and I can't handle that. And there's nothing wrong with not being able to handle it knowing yourself. That's fine. You don't have to go there. Protect your peace
Jeanette Peterson 8:35
listen to your heart or another song all the way. And I don't think so please don't make me do it again. But if your heart is saying, Oh, yuck. If it's immediate contraction. When you talk to somebody, you're around somebody hear their name. Ooh, yuck. Unsubscribe, unfollow, now, like now, like do now.
Jeanette Peterson 8:57
There's no reason to sit there and continue to be in this place. Move on. That's okay. So this week we're just going to unfollow and unsubscribe from lots of people you might go down from I don't like to unfriend people on Facebook. I don't know why I just don't I just it's easier to unfollow us. I just unfollow as it come through my feed saying something stupid. It is not because I don't agree with it. Sometimes it is but sometimes it's not like people are having issues with Juneteenth being out today. Sometimes I'll read them and it will spark an intelligent thought process in my head. Those people I keep some people just say stuff out of ignorance. Those people I get rid of.
Jeanette Peterson 9:47
You don't have to agree with me for me to unfollow you and you'll have to disagree with me if we don't follow. It just depends on how you make me feel about what you're saying. Okay, I do think that we need to have different points of view, I do think that we need to understand other people's points of view. I'm saying we need to be open. But if they're using language you don't like if they're saying things in a way that you don't like, because it's triggering to you. Let's unfold. Goodbye. I have a friend that I am like this closer, I'm following. I love her. I love her a lot. But she's making me feel inadequate.Jeanette Peterson:
And that's a me thing. That is not a hard thing. What she's doing is I, I feel like I should be shouting from the rooftops, but I'm having a feeling about it. So that's a me that I need to work through that. So I'm going to unfollow her for a little while until I can work through that. I'm still her friend. I still love her. I just can't see her stuff right now. You know, I'm saying having a little jelly girl moment. Okay, I'm just having a little jelly girl moment. And I don't want my feelings of inadequacy that has nothing to do with her. Lead me to be a worst friend to her because I'm having this moment. So I want you to think about that. This week. Unsubscribe unfollow for the right reasons. Alright girl, i'll see ya Flippity flopJeanette Peterson:
