a seat at the table


The Daring Romantics


as humans, one of our innate desires is to belong. however, too often, we spend valuable time questioning if we belong and if we have a seat at the proverbial table of life. we allow our self-doubt to keep us from fully accepting the invitation to pull up a chair, sink into our seats, and claim our seat at the table— the place where we can be seen, our ideas can be heard, and where we can make a difference.

here’s the one and only truth that you need to know about the table:


let go of your preconceived ideas that tell you that you have to be rich + famous, older or younger, or from a certain demographic to have a seat of the table. you have a seat— just as you are. you don’t have to change anything about you to have a seat at the table. you merely have to accept the invitation.

at the table— life happens, ideas are shared, movements are started, change is sparked, passion is ignited, and dreams come to life. at the table, you’ll find community and realize that you don’t have to do life and dreaming alone. at the table, you’ll come to an understanding that your voice matters and your contribution is important.

but, have no doubt, you cannot just accept the invitation to the table and then sit in silence. the table will ask some things of you.

this week, on the daring romantics podcast, i’m opening up the conversation about the table and sharing my own experiences with questioning if i belonged at the table or not. throughout this episode, i hope that you feel encouraged by the truth that YOU BELONG and empowered to claim your seat and be all that you were called to be. and, yes, i’ll be sharing the five things that the table will ask of you once you claim your rightful place at the table.

you, my friend, were born for such a time as this. it’s your time, it’s your season — to claim your spot at the table, to influence communities, and lead others to dreams come true. take ownership of your spot.
