Rock Your Kindness highlights extraordinary stories of everyday people experiencing life-changing kindness. Whether it’s a random act, saves a life, or helps you be kinder to yourself, these stories will increase empathy, compassion, and hope. You never know how your kindness can change the trajectory of your life or the life of another.

Rock Your Kindness is hosted by Tracey Ferrin. Tracey is a mother, wife, best-selling author, and TikTok superstar. She is often called a “breath of fresh air” by those who know and meet her. She is a mom of 4 and has been married to the love of her life for 18 years. Together, they call Texas home.

In this episode, Tracey chats with Shelby about her journey to becoming a Love Advocate and the inspiration her daughter gave her throughout. Shelby and Tracey also discuss how to cultivate kindness and how it must start with you before it can be passed on to others, and more!

“Don’t take things personally, don’t make assumptions, be impeccable with your word, and do your best.”

Thoughts from a Balcony Podcast by Trevor Morrison

Thoughts from a Balcony are intentional conversations with unique individuals to help you navigate through this extraordinary journey called life. Created by Trevor Morrison to help others in the pursuit of enlightenment, purpose, passion, peace, virtue, and fulfillment.

Shelby starts off this insightful conversation by telling the story of her own personal growth. She details the process of being a young mother, dealing with the diagnosis of bipolar disorder, confronting past trauma, managing her internal dialogue, and eventually entering into the world of spirituality and the healing arts.

We then jump into a discussion of the ego and the shadow, and how Shelby works with all parts of herself to navigate through life in a healthy manner. We explain the importance of discomfort, what can be gained from terrible situations, and how unfortunate circumstances are a part of the human experience that we must accept.

Shelby shares the tools she uses to heal and create peace within her mind and body which include meditation, breathework, journalling, and an impactful Hawaiian practice (Ho’ponopono) centered around forgiveness.

We talk about stress, anxiety, loving yourself and others, paying attention to physical symptoms of misalignment, falling into unconscious patterns, cultivating who you are, and other important topics of being human.

Shelby is such a genuine and calming presence to be around and listen to. In the short time Ive known her, she’s been beyond helpful in my healing journey. I hope this episode can help you do the same.

Enjoy 🫡

Motherhood Metamorphosis Podcast

Shelby’s honesty and authenticity about her personal struggles and healing is inspiring. We talked at length about the stories we tell ourselves and how to weed out the lies from our minds. It is up to us, as women, to seek healing so that we can be the women and mothers that will bring life and health into our world and families.

Quotable Quotes: “We want our kids to believe all these things about themselves—that they are worthy and valued and they have gifts and talents and they can do whatever they want in life—we build them up! But if we’re also not building THIS [presses hand to heart] up, then they can see how we’re treating ourselves. Modeling that is so huge too. It’s not just what we say.”

“The more we can really question the stories we’re telling and ask ourselves, “Does this align with what God would say about me…and even what MY OWN KIDS would say about me?!” They see such a better version than we would admit or even what see in the mirror!”
