Living Feisty: Overcoming Adversity

adjective: feisty; comparative adjective: feistier; superlative adjective: feistiest
(of a person, typically one who is relatively small) lively, determined, and courageous.

– Oxford Dictionary


I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what it means to be feisty. This is my favourite definition so far.

I love how it doesn’t require someone to be a superhero. In fact, the hero of this ‘feisty’ story is actually required to be on the smaller side to fit the definition! Perhaps they are the one viewed as unlikely, or even insignificant, to observers.

Yet this person has grit, and bravery.

I am inclined to link OVERCOMING with FEISTY- the ‘feisty’ one has battles to fight that require their courage, and it is under stress or duress that this characteristic is shown in all its glory.


It seems to me, that without battles to overcome, courage would not be required, and the FEISTY would not arise.


I’ll continue to extrapolate this further over the next little while, but for now, let me say:

If life is requiring you to be Feisty right now, then arise you beloved creature, square your shoulders, lift your chin and KEEP GOING in all your Feisty glory! Keep going and honour your efforts and your bravery every time you step forward, one step towards overcoming, one step further from quitting.

Keep going my feisties!   


On my own journey, I’m constantly pushing myself to learn new things and serve more people in more ways. The latest is my upcoming podcast! This is something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while now, and I took time at the end of September to travel to San Diego to learn from the legend that is Pat Flynn ( He is a great guy, SUCH a servant hearted dude and it was my absolute honour and privilege to get learning the how-tis of podcasting from such a stellar man, and in the company of an elite band of experts and thought leaders, all ready to launch their own podcasts too.

We’re getting all the finer details ready for launch, but for now you can check it out and join the Feisty Life email cool kids by clicking the link
