“Life is a series of storms. As we get older, they tend to be more frequent. Taking time to have “fun” is how we weather them. The storms will keep coming so we must learn to dance in the rain.” Find Your Unicorn Space by Eve Rodsky
Eve Rodsky is known for her game-changing book and social movement, Fair Play. Fair Play is a groundbreaking system that uses organizational management strategies to more fairly divide unpaid labor in the home. In today’s episode, Eve joins us for a conversation about gender equality, mental health, creativity, and her most recent book, Find Your Unicorn Space. Eve explains that a successful organization has boundaries, systems, and communication, but her research indicates that boundaries become barriers for women when they don’t believe they have permission to be unavailable from their roles, when guilt and shame ruin their experiences, and when boundaries are met with push back. Eve’s work focuses on helping women reclaim permission to be unavailable and ask for what they need, burn guilt and shame, and hold space for boundary breaches. We love Eve’s definition of mental health: having the appropriate emotion at the appropriate time and the ability and strength to weather it. Eve’s newest book, Find Your Unicorn Space, focuses on weathering the storms of life with curiosity and developing consistent interest in our own lives (rather than singular focus on the roles we fill) as an antidote to burnout.
