If you’ve been here for a minute, you’re well familiar with the fact that I’m a 90s kid and have zero shame about my love for the Best Decade in History.
I make references all the time, and some of my most-read emails and blogs are rooted in 90s nostalgia. Like this one.
I don’t know if it’s just a 2020 thing or what, but I’ve been really leaning extra hard into the familiarity of that time period. Perhaps for comfort. Perhaps just for fun. Definitely for some laughs. But even so, there’s something about it beyond the nostalgia.
First of all, turns out, the 90s were actually a pretty decent decade from a world stage standpoint. Obviously, I was too young and isolated in Nowhereland, USA, to really understand it, but despite a few major hiccups (the OKC bombing, LA riots, Columbine shooting, genocide and war in Bosnia and Kosovo, Hurricane Andrew to name a few), it was a decade of relative peace and prosperity. We had incredible music, top-notch TV, basically all the movies you’ve ever loved, fashion that still reigns today, excellent literature, a thriving economy, and THE INTERNET. Who wouldn’t be nostalgic for all that?
Beyond that, though, the 90s were special for me. And I finally put my finger on exactly why in a recent podcast conversation.
I don’t want to give it away, because the whole podcast is such a powerful dialogue and I hope you’ll take a listen. The topic is super relevant right now in a lot of ways – Cultivating Self-Trust. And beyond learning why I really love the 90s so much, I know you’ll pick up some great ideas for how to begin to trust yourself more too, which is something we can definitely all benefit from.
And here’s to reliving the Best Decade Ever!
If cultivating self-trust is something you want to learn more about, let’s hop on the phone and talk about it. We can also talk 90s memories, of course. Don’t forget you can sign up for emails that share resources and stories like this every week!
