Podcast 44: Chasing Slow with Erin Loechner

Before age 30, Erin Loechner built a fan base of one million women worldwide and earned the title “The Nicest Girl Online” as she was praised for her authentic voice and effortless style. Though she received applause from The New York Times, friends and family, she was still left wanting more.

In her upcoming book Chasing Slow: Courage to Journey Off the Beaten Path (Zondervan, January 10, 2017), Erin shares her journey away from fast, fame and frenzy to a new-fashioned lifestyle of less. Less want, more contentment. Less busy, more rest. Less pressure, more happiness. Less striving, more acceptance. Less fast, more slow.

Erin joins us in this episode at Let The Music Play Podcast as we talk about surrender, abundance, grace, and letting go of the scorecards we tend carry in our lives.

If you see the world as a war zone, surrendering will typically create a sense of loss and failure in you. All bets are off when we’re living to avoid defeat and shame will always invite his little sister, misery. Why would you surrender in something you could still jujitsu yourself out of?

However, if you see the world as a symphony, surrendering will create a sense of openness and possibility in you. You’re now surrendering to the flow of what’s good and true and everything here becomes much lighter and much brighter.

Surrender. Step into it don’t fight it.
