Lisa Whittle is an Uncaged Woman!

Feb 2, 2012Heal from the past

I’m excited to have my friend Lisa Whittle here today to talk about what it means for her to live uncaged. She wrote a spectacular book entitled {w}hole. If the premise intrigues you (and I’m pretty sure it will), you can purchase the book here. And now onto my interview of Lisa.

What would it look like for you to live uncaged in 2012?

It would look bold. I would live, fearless. It would be a year of forward movement, without me getting in my own way.

What has prevented you from living a truly free and unencumbered life in the past?

I think just alot of second guessing and maybe even, too much self-evaluation. I’ve realized, lately, that at some point I have to just step forward, messy as I am, and get out there. I am prevented from this when I spend too much time thinking about my fears and insecurities.

Give my readers advice. What’s one practical thing they can do this year to live uncaged? (This can be silly like dancing in the rain or serious like eat more chocolate.)

Get over yourself. It’s what I advise myself. If that sounds harsh, maybe this will sound better: Offer yourself some grace and start moving. 🙂

Who in your life is an excellent example of living uncaged? Why?

My daughter lives, uncaged. She has the innocence of childhood, the unfiltered love for Jesus, and the comfortability in her own skin. Oh, that those things would never go away.

If you could design a Live Uncaged sweatshirt, what would it look like?

This is hard, because…well…I only really create things with words. 🙂 Maybe a picture of something that lives outside of bars, because that’s what living uncaged really looks like.
