This episode is for you if there's an area in your life you suspect you might be a little heavy-handed. 

If we're heavy handed about something it's usually because we care about that thing. But often this is less effective than we intended. On this episode we're talking about everything from makeup, to relationships, to posting on social media.

Ep 33: Recent Revelations

This episode is for you if you’ve had any recent revelations you want to share.

Revelations. I’ve had a few. If you’re a regular listener to this show, you probably are the type of person who is striving for growth, who aims to be self-aware, and who is paying attention. And if you’re paying attention, you’re learning. Always.

So this week I'm sharing with you a few of my own personal recent revelations (some shallow, some deeper), and I am actively encouraging you to share your own. Not only privately or in your journal, this time I’m challenging you to share on social media.

Ep 28: Motherhood through Adoption with Lindsay Lawler

This episode is for you if you or a loved one has ever struggled through the fertility process, or if you’re interested in the topic of adoption.

I am so happy to share this conversation with one of my dearest friends, Lindsay Lawler.

Still, the topic of fertility and motherhood remained such a sensitive one that we didn’t talk about it much until Lindsay was already walking down the road towards adoption.

Ep 23: What are you measuring?

Ep 23: What are you measuring?

We’re all measuring something, but are we using the right metric? Are we measuring time or result? Are we measuring our waist or our health? We can measure our social media or our water intake, but if we’re not setting ourselves up for success, then we’ll fail emotionally every time.

In this episode, I’m musing over some measurements that caught me off guard, and how I’m shifting my perspective on some of the things I'm measuring.
