“And I decide in that moment, I’m going to turn around. I’m going to keep walking away from her. Because in this one moment, for Charlotte, I am not going to arrest the intoxication and I’m not going to soothe the terror. I’m going to let her ride out the full arc of both of those emotions so she can be one step closer to the kind of courageous and resilient grown woman that she is trying to become.”
That piece of moving narrative comes from our brilliant Elizabeth Beauvais who took the stage in Louisiana last month for a storytelling podcast about the time she let her eight-year-old daughter run away from home. For 45 minutes. Grab a beer, a burrito, a box of tissues and listen to “The Chipotle Rebellion.”
We’re so proud of you, Elizabeth!
