Think meditation is hard? Do me a favor, take a slow deep breath in and now breathe out. Congratulations, you just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jakosky, and this is Breathe In, Breathe Out: a Weekly Mindfulness and Meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peace while doing it.

Welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky and I’m, you know what I’m sharing. I’m just here. I’m sharing today. I wanted to talk with you and just tell you about some lessons I learned when I went to the TEDWomen conference back in December, because I really had to get out of my comfort zone for that. I’m a bit of an introvert and I need my sidekick because my sidekick makes me feel okay, at least somebody knows that I’m cool. Somebody knows that I have value and worth. I mean I know I have, I have self-esteem, I have self-confidence and yet … I think every one of us in life has these moments where we’re a little bit insecure and we’re not really ready for whatever is coming. We just need that extra boost of somebody else saying, yeah, you totally got this.  

I went to TED and I’ll tell you, the first night they had sessions and then they had dinner and I was so nervous and so tired because I had been going so, so hard and fast leading up to it. And that night before I went to the session, I had a mini-breakdown. I just sat in my room and I cried for a minute thinking, gosh, what am I thinking? What am I doing? How am I going to do this? I have to talk with people, or I’m going to be eating dinner alone and look like a loner. And then I pulled up my big girl panties and I said, Nope, I’m doing this. And I got out there. So today I want to share with you five TED takeaways, things that I learned and thought were really, really cool while I was there at this TEDWomen conference.
