EPISODE 95: [INTERVIEW] How to Own Your Change & Get into Alignment with Taylor Nardone

In today’s very special episode, we dive into the idea of owning your change as it happens and getting into alignment in order to live a life that you LOVE. These are two things we have talked about before on the Living in Sunshine Podcast, but today we get even more insight for our interview guest, Taylor Nardone. 

 

Taylor is a recently retired teacher who left a teaching job he loved in order to chase a bigger calling and purpose in life. He shares so much of his personal story and I TRULY believe you will resonate with so many parts of it. You can find Taylor on Instagram, TikTok, and on his own podcast, Step Into Your Power. Taylor’s insight, honesty, and realness is a gift in a world of so many of us trying to “figure it out” and I hope you love this interview as much as I loved being part of it.

Lots of you probably know him from Instagram or Tiktok. I will let him share all of his socials and handles and stuff at the end. His name is Taylor and he is a retired teacher. I feel like I could call you a retired teacher right now. It’skind of exciting.retired teacher who is living his best life and doing a whole bunch of stuff that I know you guys are going to love and live for. So we’re just gonna dive right into it. Taylor, welcome to the show. I’m so happy you’re here.

Taylor 2:16 I am so unbelievably honored. We’re gonna have the best time. It’s gonna be so

Maddy 2:20 it’s going to be amazing. So I found you on Instagram. But you also have a tick tock, right?

Taylor 2:27 I do. I do. Yeah. Can

Maddy 2:28 you share people where they can find you on both Instagram and Tiktok?

Taylor 2:32 Sure. So Instagram was my birthplace couple years back tick tock care a little later. But my Instagram is the chronicles of teacher Tay. And then my tick tock is just chronicles of teacher tie, apparently. I don’t know. Those are my two main platforms. So I love it.

Maddy 2:53 Okay, cool. And so as I mentioned, you are a retired teacher, right? That’s what we’re gonna call you unless you like to call yourself someone else. Something else. Can you share with us just briefly, what you’re doing now, if you’re not currently teaching, I’m sure a lot of people probably found you as you were teaching and in your teacher season of life. But what are you doing now? Can you share that with people?

Taylor 3:15 Yes. Oh, my goodness. Well, you know, when it’s funny, I think I’ve been describing to people that right now I’m just kind of like existing, which is a very hard thing for people to understand. I get it, I get it. Everyone’s like you gotta be hostile towards that big. Yeah, I left my job back in July, after a lot of thought huge spiritual awakening all of these things, chose to leave and take that leap of faith that my inner gut and soul which I’ll probably talk about, at some point today, was calling me to do. So when I left, I didn’t really have a plan, which is kind of the best way to frickin do it. Let’s do it. And so I jumped and I worked, I had been working part time because we didn’t make a lot of money as teachers. So it was also an additional day week at a cafe, which was gonna be pretty good money. Right? So I went more full time there. But still not full time, I only work about three to four shifts a week with that. And I’ve recently started to dive a little bit more into brand partnerships, if they align with me. I’m really just in a in a phase of life, where I’m gearing up for what is next and allowing myself to just receive and heal and be. And I think when we do that, we then are ready to launch off. So I’m just extremely excited for 2023. But I guess to answer the question, I’m a part time server and then I fill my time doing whatever else.

Maddy 4:38 I love that I love that and that sort of like flinging yourself off the cliff and just going for it is something that I have done in my life a few times and something that I oftentimes get questions about, so I would love to hear from you. It’s kind of a few quite kind of a few questions stemming from what you just said. My first one is is what got you to the point of you saying this cannot be it because I’ve listened to a few of your episodes, especially in that transition of, of always hustling and you got your masters, I believe in education. And you were in this big season of hustle and doing and wanting to try new new realms in the education space. And then you were like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. So can you share with us first and foremost? What was kind of your line in the sand? What was kind of a thing that you said, this cannot be my entire life for the rest of my life? Like, what? This can’t be it? Like, what was that for you?

Taylor 5:28 Right? Well, first of all, it’s so cool hearing someone like say back to me what I was experiencing? Because you nailed it right there that really? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So basically, I Oh, my gosh, so many things. So I was a teacher for five years. And I think the hardest thing about this process is when I had left, I don’t think it was as traditional of teachers leaving, if that makes sense, I think mine was a little bit different. Because it wasn’t that I got to a point necessarily with the profession where I was like, Oh, my gosh, I can do this. I mean, listen, I was at an amazing school, I was well supported, great job, amazing co workers dream school. Like, the higher they’re on, like, go off and chase your dream. It’s such a good, but you know what, I think for me, it was more. So there was another part of me that was like knocking on the door, like, hey, you need to be out there, you gotta go do more. And I kept pushing it down. And it’s very, very hard to allow that to come to fruition. When you’re doing so many other things. I think with teaching, as we know, you know, it’s something that just kind of beats you down every day, right? So you just don’t have any creativity left. And so after a while, I think my moment of having that break, was after a really difficult year, last year. Now granted, it was one of the best years I had teaching kids were phenomenal. Like, it was great. But I was getting my masters. And I was prepared to head into a gen ed classroom because I kind of had that epiphany a year before I taught music, obviously. So I was working hard towards that on all my prep periods. I was running into go, you know, observing these costumes. I was taking the M towels. I was in grad school. I you know, was working on the weekend. So it was a whole thing. And yeah, it’s funny. I, I’ll never forget, like my principal had signed the paper that said, I got my license for that. And I was like, I got it. And he was like, Yeah, you did this stuff. And I was like, Oh, my God. And in that moment, like it all began, and I felt that I was literally like bipolar for two months. Every day, I was just swirling and I was like, what is going to get it? Is everything changing for me? And so

Maddy 7:19 why am I not happy? I got why am i I’m here. I’m here to talk about why am I not happy? So

Taylor 7:26 why am I why am I now I achieved it, I got to the end, I have that slip of paper that’s gonna allow me to jump into a Gen Ed room. I’ve applied to some jobs. I haven’t heard anything. But why do I feel that that’s not my calling. And that freaked me out. Though, I was like, Alright, we just need to sit in this. And I remember going to a wedding at the end of May. And I do share this on the podcast, because I think it’s such a good story. But I went to this wedding with my best friends. And I haven’t seen them in years. And you know, the last time I had seen them, we went to Italy. This was right after college before I started my job teaching. And I remember being in Italy, we were backpacking through and we were looking out. And we all were saying to each other, like we can’t jump on this conveyor belt. We can’t do this, like no life is meant to be, you know, we’re meant to be traveling to whatever. And the same friend that I said that to I was standing with at this wedding in May. And I not even thinking I looked at her and I was like, I think I’m ready to quit my job. And she just kind of looks at me. She’s like, Taylor, you said that five years ago? And I was like, yeah. So it was a combination, I think of a lot. But I really listened to that. And then over the the next two months, I sat and meditated and I remember looking up to the universe. And I was like, I’ll do this because this is a big one. But you need to give you a sign. And so I was writing down every single sign I got that I felt was telling me to leave you have to take and I tried not to make sense of it. I tried to be like, Okay, well, if this is what my gut is saying it was the logic it was my gut. If this is what my inner voice is saying that I have to just go for it. So it’s kind of how it came to be. But yeah, it really came out of nowhere. But But looking back, there were definitely signs over the years. Got about you know, so

Maddy 9:02 yeah, yeah. So I’m wondering now, because you’ve mentioned a whole bunch of stuff you you talked about noticing these signs and listening to your gut and something that I hear from our community over at living in sunshine, and I’m sure your communities quite similar, as you might have people who are like, Well, how do you even do that? Like, how are you so tuned into yourself? Because this is something that I teach people, how to become more self aware how to be able to trust yourself to take that leap. And my question for you is, how did you get to that point where you could be able to pick up on those signs or listen to your gut or even just be aware enough of yourself to say, my body, my mind, the universe, whoever is telling me something? What do you feel like you did that help you to become that that level of software because I can tell you not many people are as self aware as I think you and I are and I’m curious to know what you do or what you have done to sort of get to that point or maybe that’s just how you’ve always been

Taylor 9:59 you Ah, well, you know, it’s interesting. I think I’m very, very highly intuitive. I always have been, I think it is just one of I don’t even know if it’s a gift as much as it is just an ability. And so I very much been into it myself, you know, when I was 13 years old, that’s when I had my first like, I call them like, unlocking epiphanies. When the floodgates open, you allow the information to come in, and I was like, Oh, my God, I meant to sing. And I went on that journey for what, 10 or 15 years, you know, so I’ve had a few of those in my life. And this is that’s exactly what it felt like. And it doesn’t come from the mind. It comes from your soul. It comes from your it’s just really this gut inner feeling. And I started to like, listen to this, this notion of like, is it a full body? Yes. And if it’s not a full body, yes and no. So when I thought about staying in teaching, or I thought about being in a classroom, I was like, see that I’m still in a box. And my soul right now is desperate to get out of a box. And I had to acknowledge that first and be like, Okay, if that’s what it is, that’s what it is. Now at this. At the time, I was going through a huge spiritual awakening, which I do think kind of happens in everyone’s own phases of life at different times. And it’s not really something you can jumpstart, I think it just kind of happens. But I did reach out to this woman, I remember I was looking at podcasts on manifestation. And I found her her name was Michelle J. Lamont, loved her podcast was listening. And I reached out to her on Instagram, or I failed on Instagram. She followed me back and I was like, Girl, and then we were chatting. And she was like, Let’s book a call. And so we booked a call. And, you know, we’re talking and she was like, You need to meditate. She’s got to meditate. She goes, this is going crazy right now and I get it, she goes, You need to separate the mind that will align you and connect you. So getting into alignment, which really comes in the form of stillness is going to help people a lot, I think, and I think that was huge, like I told myself was like, Okay, I don’t want to make this decision while I’m still in school. Because I could just be really burnt out, maybe I need some. So I went on summer break, and I said, we’re gonna keep meditating every single day. And then once the feeling got stronger, and I still felt it more securely in that moment of stillness. I knew it was time. So I think meditation is a big one. And just understanding that your mind is not your reality, until it is separate that your reality is what surrounds you, you just have to listen to your gut and understand that what’s going on up here, like you just have to silence it for a minute. And then you’ll kind of see where your purpose and destination is for that next step.

Maddy 12:20 Yeah, I love that. I’m also on my own personal meditation journey, currently, a huge thing that I have for myself in in 2023. That is so amazing that you said that I feel like that’s a sign in itself. And someone else mentioned something that you’re doing for yourself. You’re like, I really gotta lean into this.

Taylor 12:36 Yes, absolutely. Absolutely.

Maddy 12:39 Okay, so I want to circle back to this, what you said at the beginning of our interview where you mentioned, I’m just kind of existing, and doing the math, I believe that you and I are similar in age, and I feel as if our generation especially, it’s kind of breaking those societal norms. Yes, of, I need to be hustling, I need to be grinding, I need to be climbing I need to be doing all these things. No, no, you do not know your job. And my wondering for you is is how are you owning that? How are you owning just existing? Right? Because yeah, there might be maybe not maybe so people being like, what are you doing with your life? Like, you need to be doing this? Like, don’t you? Don’t you think you need to get a real job like all of these things? And how are you owning that? How are you living in that?

Taylor 13:28 Well, you know what, it’s funny when I actually have a couple of things I’ll say on this. So when I first had left my job, I told my family the morning of, I love it. And I walked in, and it was 7am, I was looking interesting. And I said to them, you know, I presented a new way of saying, you know, this is this is what I’m doing. I just want to know, when as you would expect. And, you know, they were very respectful about it. But obviously other questions and, and everyone was asking me around the time, what’s your plan? What are you doing now? And I said, I kept saying everyone I was like you have like, it will come to me. But you have to allow me time to let it come to me. And after a while I just stopped answering questions about it. I really was just like, I’m just going to do my thing. And to be perfectly frank, you know, when you’re when you’re navigating that and I think if people are in that same phase, and they’re feeling that I did kind of distance myself from certain people for a time because I said I assess and it was nothing personal. It was like, You know what, I’m really not at a point of being able to navigate your energy right now. Yes, you go through. So I’m just gonna go over here for a little bit and I’ll be back and I think people really got that and understood that and now I’m good. But at the time, I was like, You know what, this is just this is what I have to do. And funny enough, I got a Reiki healing done in November. So freakin cool. And this was going through my different chakras. And she was like, you know, she’s like tuning in almost like kind of like a medium, whatever. And she was like, you may have, you know, felt the need to stop something in the past year. And I was like, Well, it’s interesting. You say that cuz like, she was like, you know, you were going so hard in the masculine. So we have the masculine and feminine energies. So that masculine is the Go, go go. And she was like, whatever you were doing your 85% the masculine, and she’s like, everything is telling you right now you need to learn how to receive, which is the feminine just receiving abundance come to you. And she was like, in about six or seven months your energy is gonna go and just light up forward to whatever you’re doing next. So I think I’m just I really with people around me was very much like this is just what I’m doing. This is what I have to do right now. And you can jump on the bandwagon, or you can not my problem. Yeah. So yeah,

Maddy 15:40 I think I think what it is, is when we change in our own personal life, especially with those people who love us, right, our families, our partners, our friends, a lot of the way that we respond, especially when we’re making such a big change, like a career change, right? So I did the same thing. Last year, I was an online teacher, and I quit on a random Thursday because I was so just it was just not aligned with who I was. I think that when we get that feedback, and we get that energy, it’s all rooted in fear. And fear. We should talk about that in a sec. Because I’m sure, you know, is a huge hindrance for so many people. Right? And my my wondering, is, is one, did you have that sense of fear for your own? I mean, I’m sure at some level there, it might have been there, because we all panic a little bit, right? Yeah. But like, how did you manage that for yourself? But also, and you kind of already answered this, how did you manage that intake of other people’s fearful energy, about your change, and I think it’s a fear rooted in love and care, especially in your situation, it’s not a it’s not a negative fear, they just want to make sure that you’re okay. And you’re gonna be okay. Especially parents, right? But that’s my wondering for you is like, how did you manage all of that? Because it’s a lot. It really is,

Taylor 17:00 it is it is, you know, I did have fear about it. But I also had this very deep knowing that I was going to be protected and would be okay. And I think that there’s a different you know, in absolutely the fear with family, all this type of stuff. It’s sometimes a projection, but it also is very much in love. And it absolutely isn’t, my parents were like, listen to you, like we’ve, this is the life we’ve lived. And so you know, at six years old, this is this is what we think the world is, right? So, you know, we’re just telling you what, what we perceive it to be, but everyone’s experience is so individual. So what happens is that people live their entire lives. And then they become very jaded, they assume that the box they’ve lived in is the box that everyone fits in. And that’s just not how it has to be. So there is a level of spiritual understanding, and that the universe, if you trust fall, the universe will catch you. And it always happens at the 11th hour, but they will catch you. And, you know, people were so nervous about, you know, it’s, it’s like, you’re not gonna get health insurance, I’m gonna How you gonna make money I had making so much more money. Now. I found health insurance within a month, you know, and it’s not that everything’s been blissful and perfect, but that’s the fun of it. It’s like anything that’s a challenge is an opportunity to expand and grow. And I think the thing about it is, in my opinion, we are on this earth to expand it is a lot of experiences for our soul. And our soul was going through a lot, but that’s what we signed up for. So it’s like you have to fight, not fight, you don’t have to fight through, you literally have to jump through it. So when it comes to you, it scares you time to do it. And people, I think people have this big concept of failure, because we tie it to our self worth, and it has nothing to do with us. And it’s subjective. It does not exist, like my version of failure is different than yours, which is different than theirs. Like, the whole thing is you just kind of move and you go and you pivot and like, oh, this didn’t work. I don’t really care. Because look at all that great stuff. And I’m gonna keep going, yeah, oh, let me just get like it doesn’t matter. You just just keep ricocheting and you keep moving forward. And so that’s, that’s how I view it. And I think when you do you start to see that there’s good everywhere. And there’s a solution for everything. Because there’s it’s Ying Yang, you can see the good, you can see the bad, it’s just what you choose to focus on. And naturally, you’re going to start to think that way more, which is then what you attract. So fine. Yeah,

Maddy 19:08 yeah. And I love that. And I think something and I love that you said like, it’s failure is all about perception. Something I say to people all the time is because I think failure and making a mistake are very much parallel to each other. They’re very similar. I tell people all the time, it was only a mistake if you didn’t learn from it. And I think that when we give that permission slip to people and we offer that to other people, it gives them the permission to say, okay, I can take the leap and leave my job or break up with my boyfriend who is a jerk or move out of my house or my tiny hometown that I’ve always been in and do these things that I’ve always wanted. That is so powerful. Since we talked about here, we’ve been talking about this idea of you’re in one of your podcast episodes. You said something that really struck me I was out on a walk And I was with my dog. And I was like, what? Like, I literally stopped and I was like holy smokes. And you said, you can tap into fear as much as you tap into joy. And in this space in this space, we’re all about that living of life that we love, living a life full of joy. So my question for you is, is how do you tap into joy? How do you recognize joy on the daily? And what does that look like for you?

Taylor 20:27 Well, I remember that I’m already heading towards my destination, I’m in no rush to get towards my destination. I love the life I have right now I see all the joy I have in my life right now. Or, you know, I can find the gratitude around me I can find something to be grateful for right now. I can be excited to wake up tomorrow, because I’m going to have a new experience on this earth. And so it’s all about it’s really you have to be present. And I think if I could recommend like a book to anybody, yeah, please be the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, which is just an absolute gift. And it is really about the you know, the only moment you ever have is now. So anytime you’re in fear, you have anxiety, whatever it is, you are either worried about the future, or you’re living in the past, which has somehow defined who you are. And neither of those two things exist right now, the only thing we have is now so there’s a, there’s a sense of stillness and joy, and just the essence of being that it’s just this like uninhibited bliss. And I think that that’s how I’m trying to walk through life. So I would say, you know, for joy, I mean, the things that people should do really would be get outside more. Yeah, I don’t think you’re going outside enough. Like go outside, like, go for a walk, just do anything to get yourself like connected to the earth a little bit. And you’ll start to see, you know, sometimes I just take my headphones out, and I’ll just stand there and go, yeah, how can our brains be so chaotic, but everything is just still? Literally? Yeah, it’s wild. And like I said, Yeah, what you can easily as easily as you can tap into fear, anxiety, they’re all emotions, they’re literally emotions. And by the way, this is the room that I exist in. Well, apparently, I’m at the Golden Gate Bridge right now. You know, I mean, when you’re outside, I mean, you can have all these different thoughts. None of that is changing the reality that you are outside, there’s some beautiful trees, there’s the ocean, like, that’s your reality, this is all just swirling. And so the more that we can line up to the present moment, we can realize that, like, we are not our thoughts, and we don’t have to live in accordance with that. So

Maddy 22:24 I love that. I love that. And again, it’s one of those things, and I this is something else that I tell people quite frequently is, we need to slow down, we need to slow down because we are so used to getting all this information from our phones or from the news or from online or whatever. And when we slow down, we can really intentionally intentionally tap into joy. Okay, so I have two more questions for you. Something that you mentioned a lot on your podcast is being aligned. And I’m wondering, can you share with us what that means to you being aligned, and also how someone listening could work on getting into alignment? Because that’s a huge thing that I’m also sharing with my people too. And I think it would be interesting to get a fresh perspective.

Taylor 23:09 Yeah. Well, being aligned is a very, it’s a very expansive feeling. It feels very limitless and you’re creating, you just have ideas that are flowing, it’s just the state of flow. It’s an it’s a, it’s a receiving and a releasing, that happens concurrently. And you just feel so content with where you are in that moment. And I actually learned that from Abraham Hicks, if anyone’s kind of into the spiritual side of things. You know, Abraham talks a lot about your vortex. And when you’re in your vortex, you’re just like, I don’t know, if people have ever had those days where whatever your whatever passion project, you’re working on time just a racist, you are working, you are happy tears are flowing, you keep going, it’s getting better. Oh, my God is so good. Like that is when you’re in a state of alignment. Yeah, and also be in the state of alignment and not be doing anything. And that’s frickin great, too. It feels so good. So I’d say in terms of getting into alignment, you know, I’m actually trying to figure out myself, how I actually get into alignment, because I know when I’m out of it, I know when I’m out, I get scared of things, I start to get anxious about things, I’m itching for something, whether it’s food, whether it’s like I can’t, you know, we really our essence, we should be able to just be it shouldn’t be that we have to grab something. And it’s hard, you know, with our phones and social media, all that type of stuff. It’s difficult to I think what I’ve started to do for myself to get me back into alignment is I made a playlist of songs that just like get me so high vibe. Yeah, hit me up. And I’m like, we’re putting this on. And without a doubt, it always gets me going. Yeah. And I usually like I said, you know, I will go outside and I’ll go for a walk. I really do something to just connect with what’s going on around me. But I think it’s just it’s tapping into you. It’s tapping into the full capacity of you and doing things that bring you joy and when you feel joy, it’s going to unlock all of that. So it comes into the stillness, but you know when people talk about you know, raising your vibration. It’s just, it’s, it’s raising your emotions, it’s making you feel better. So what makes you feel better will probably get you into a state of alignment. And then what you want to do too, I think is documented. So if you’re feeling really good, you should record yourself when you feel good. How does it feel? You should write it down. Because the best way to get back into a two is you go back and listen to that, because you just experienced it yourself. Hmm.

Maddy 25:21 I love that. And for anyone who’s like, I’m not recording myself, like that’s so weird. Only people like That’s so silly. It’s not silly. Like I used to be one of those people, you know, those like montages that people say that, like you see them on Instagram, or Tiktok, wherever you’re like, I would never do that. But like when you start doing it, and you make those a feel so good when you actually put them all together. I love that. And

Taylor 25:42 you also don’t have to post it, it could just be for you, in your voice notes to be like I am feeling because you’re gonna hear it in your voice. It’s an energy, there’s a vibration to it, like you’re gonna hear it in your voice and you go back and you just go oh my god. I mean, to be honest with you. I don’t really like listening or watching myself back a lot of this time. Yeah, working on that. But I do find when I listen to my podcast, there’s things that I say that I’m like, geez, oh, my God. I should listen about a little bit, you know, like I, it gets me back. I’m like, Wow, isn’t a really good place to do that. So yeah, you know, I think it’s, it’s if you just have a little folder for yourself in your phone, where you can record those moments where you just feel so good. Yeah, just get better and better. Yeah.

Maddy 26:19 And the thing is, is when you revisit them, you kind of you can call upon those happy moments and those happy like where you’re at, you’re when you’re not at your high vibration, you can tap back into those. Yeah. Which is super, super powerful. Okay, here’s my final question. Here’s how we’re going to wrap this up. If someone listening says, Man, I wish I could be like that would be like Taylor, what would your biggest piece of advice that you would give to that person who says that they’re listening or like, Oh, my God, I love this dude, I love this guy. I want to be just like him. What was your what’s your biggest piece of advice for that person?

Taylor 26:53 I think I would say that, that full capacity of who you are exists within you. And you literally have to tap into it, you just have to listen to it, you have to start expecting that things are going to go your way. And that even if they don’t, there’s a solution. And once you start to go on that path, it’s like taking one step after another and then before you know it, you’ve reached AWS and things are just blissful. You know, and not that it will be all the time, but you just kind of go on that path. And you know, it’s funny, I was I was listening to someone today. And they were saying, you know, when you start to really like level up and shift your life and you step into it, you know, you see people, whether it’s they start getting really healthy, or they’re they’re starting businesses, whatever it is, it looks like magic, but it’s not. They they took the steps behind the scenes, and it was one step after another. They woke up in the morning and they said you know what I’m gonna meditate today. And then I’m gonna go for my walk. And they did walk for a month amendments, and I’m gonna start doing I’ll go for a run now. I’m going to start writing this down, I’m gonna write down when I feel good. I’ll write down my ideas, and then it starts unfolding. So you just have to tap into that and start to see how you can feel good in those simple moments of life. I would say that that’s the beginning of all of it.
