In this interview with Cara Bradley, the author/yoga teacher/Wf1 Truthteller talks about how we can uncover the brilliance that already lives within us—simply by getting present.
In her first book, On the Verge: Wake Up, Show Up, and Shine, yoga teacher and mental strength coach Cara Bradley explains what it means to be on the verge — to show up in this exact moment and meet our potential to shine in all aspects of our lives. Then she empowers readers to live from that place through practices and strategies designed to shift them out of their heads and fully into the present moment.
Yoga teacher, author, and Women For One Truthteller Cara Bradley is the author of On the Verge: Wake Up, Show Up, and Shine, a new book that helps readers still their busy minds and cultivate awareness through practice and attention. But how do you hone your attention and let yourself be present in the midst of pain, pressure, and the feeling of being overwhelmed by your life? Cara offers a deeply vulnerable blog post that demonstrates how you can make peace with your grief so you can create a life that allows you to shine, live, and love in the moment.
Letting go of our children is the hardest part of parenting. It begins when they’re little with childcare and moves on to sleepovers and summer camps. By the time the sun sets on their teen years, they’re often off to college or stepping out into the world in other ways. But letting them leave the nest is not easy—especially when they’re flying off into a foreign country, as Truthteller Cara Bradley found.
This is an interesting dialogue. Personally, I have no issue with cursing in most cases. For me, we’re just talking about words, and curse words are just as powerful or benign as we allow them to be. I love that Truthteller Cara Bradley brings up the question of whether or not cursing is appropriate, and I am anxious to read your responses.
For those of you who know my writing and my site, you are well aware I adore quotes. They inspire truth and transparency for all of us. I also love women who share their truth both poignantly and unabashedly. When I finally connected with one of the most frequent Truthtellers on Women For One, Cara Bradley, I was reassured that my tribe exists and found this quote to express our connection: “You are truly home only when you find your tribe” ― Srividya Srinivasan. Thank you, Cara, for being with me.

We all have triggers that set us off in one way or another. These “buttons”, as Cara Bradley calls them, are unique to each of us and can move us into uncharted emotional pathways.
