Growability and a Big Dose of Humble Pie (Episode 10)
This is the second series on the Mama Says Namaste Podcast with my most favorite guest (and partner for life), Nathan Logsdon. In this series, we dig deep into the critical components that create a healthy and happy intimate relationship. Join us as we discuss
Laughter, Humble Pie, and Lots of Sex!
Congrats! We are in the double digits! You are listening to Season 2, Episode 10. We’re diving deep into relationships with the topic of Laughter, Humble Pie & Lots of Sex. Joining me in this series is my fabulous husband of thirteen years, Nathan. This week we’re diving into that wonderful little element of ourselves that can stand in the way of a close and supportive relationship – pride and ego.
Before we get started, I have to say that, as a full-time RVing family, people always want to know where we are in the country and the latest happenings. Well, we’ve hit 29 states so far, and are taking on the northeast now.
If you hop over to the Mama Says Namaste Facebook group, you’ll see my daughter Clara listing all the places we’ve been.
Just this past week we’ve been in Maryland visiting Washington DC, Delaware, where we took a road trip to see the wild horses on Assateague Island National Seashore, and now New Jersey.
Our rule is, in order to put our state sticker on our map, we have to stay overnight in the state. Out West we could spend a week in one place and never leave the state. Here in the East the girls are even more confused with where we are, as we hop from Delaware to Maryland and back to PA… Yet we’re staying consistent with at least spending the night at each place!
“Growability” is a Powerful Thing
We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known. – Brené Brown
It may sound trite, but there are two parts to humility – admitting when you are wrong, and admitting when you are hurt. Click To Tweet
Don’t be a brick wall. Don’t deny the negative feelings any more than you do the positive. Humble yourself to learn something. Be vulnerable. It’s amazing what it does for opening up the lines of communication and trust in a relationship.
“You are always a genius…today.” Nathan Logsdon
“The last thing we need in the midst of our struggle is shame for being human” – Brené Brown
“The best life raft is humility.” – Nathan Logsdon

A good dose of humble pie makes for a healthy relationship. Make sure you never let your ego take precedence over your connection with others. We have the ability to learn so much – to be a better person, by being open to learn from those moments of disconnect and embracing the opportunity to learn to love better instead of having our ego shut it down.
What sticky spots of communication have doled you out some “humble pie”?
