#38-Being more Self Aware

#38-Being more Self Aware

My life changed when I became more self-aware.

And full disclosure here... It made my life harder before it got better.

By self-aware I'm not just talking about knowing yourself and what makes you tick, I am talking about the stuff that really matters, the stuff underneath the surface.

Self-awareness is uncovering roots.

In this episode, I am sharing:

  • The difference between the self-awareness we gain in the beginning stages of childhood VS the deeper self-awareness we can choose to gain as adults via our inner thoughts, feelings, and actions.
  • Why self-awareness is so important for our health, happiness, and confidence.
  • The Stages of Awareness.
  • Simple ways you can become more self-aware TODAY!

My must have's are some of my most favorite tools, tips, or things that make my life so much easier.  

There's no mom I know that wouldn't want a little bit more of that in their life!

I am sharing my favorite physical tools that I love in the kitchen and some tips for cleaning as well as 4 really important tools that we each have within us that when utilized will help make our experience in this life so much easier.

#33-Emotional Child VS Emotional Adult

#33-Emotional Child VS Emotional Adult

No one ever sat me down and taught me the difference between being a child and being an adult in my emotional life.

In fact, it wasn't until my thirty's that I found out this was even a thing.

What I soon came to realize was that I was in emotional childhood far more of the time than I was in emotional adulthood and it hit me like a ton of bricks.

On this weeks episode we are learning what emotional adulthood is, how to notice the emotional child in us, and how to transition from being a child in our emotions to an adult much more of the time.

Maybe you are asking why we might want to do this... well the short version is that being in emotional adulthood will create a more empowered confident life.

The longer more convincing version can be found right here. Don't miss it!

#31-Hello my name is People Pleaser

#31-Hello my name is People Pleaser

How often have you had a yes slip out of your mouth before you have even given it a moment of thought.

Have you ever gotten yourself into something that you wish you could take back?

That was me, the yes girl. The girl who would show up full of overwhelm, resentment and disappointment in myself  because I was doing more than I had strength or a healthy bandwidth for. The girl who would say yes at the expense of my family's need or my needs. The girl who believed that saying yes was the way to ensure people liked me and the best way to keep others happy. 

On this episode I am sharing more about my journey to becoming a recovering people pleaser and how for me saying 'No' was only uncomfortable because it was something I had never practiced. 

Tune in to learn my favorite kind ways to say no, why it's ok to change your mind and how saying no could actually create positive change in your life, your relationships, and the world.

#30-Out of Mind, Out of Sight

#30-Out of Mind, Out of Sight

Have you heard the old adage, "Out of sight, out of mind?"

Sometimes I will use this to my advantage as a mom. 

There are just some things I choose to block from my brain in order to avoid overwhelm or irritation in the moment. 

Like closing someone's bedroom door when it's a mess and I've already asked them to tidy it up a few times. 

I don't want to be upset about that. I don't want to expend energy on that... and so I close the door so it's out of my sight and out of my mind.

But, there are sometimes when I actually WANT to intentionally choose to put things in my mind in order to have them in my sight. 

What we think is what we create, so what are the things we want to be thinking in order to create new habits that will make a huge difference in our lives for the better?

This past month I have been intentionally increasing my intention for gratitude and celebrating my wins in life.

Listen to this weeks episode to hear my Why's and How's behind this new intention, and why you may want to consider adopting them too.

#29-Fake it till you make it

#29-Fake it till you make it

I don't know about you, but there are areas of my life where faking it till I make it is how I seem to survive.

What if we are all a little like this in some ways?

Isn't that the way of motherhood? Just when we think we have things figured out, the playing field changes again!

Can you relate?

Today on the podcast I am sharing my views about the common term "Fake it till you make it" and how you can access greater confidence by just desiring to feel confident and allowing that desire to drive actions, even if they aren't natural or sincere at first.

This episode has three ideas for things you can try on this week to put this idea of faking it till you make it to the test.

Let me know how it goes and what changes you see.

If you are finding this podcast helpful in any way please consider typing out a review and highlighting all the stars at the bottom of your podcast app!

Have a great week.

#27-Finding the Crabs 🦀

#27-Finding the Crabs 🦀

Growing up on an island surrounded by the ocean made for some pretty amazing childhood memories.

A friend shared the most amazing quote the other day and as I read it, I couldn't help but think of an old family tradition I use to love which was finding crabs with my cousins and siblings at the beach.

It got me thinking of my life now. When is the last time I looked for excitement and joy? 

Surely, life can still be exciting like that, even though my circumstances and responsibilities look very different.

Today on the podcast I am sharing what I mean by finding the crabs in our lives and some of the finding crab moments that were so easy for me to see when I intentionally sat down to find them.

 My hope is that it will inspire you to look for and find your own crab moments and create and start reinforcing more happiness and joy in your life as opposed to always seeking out storms.

#26- Fighting against All or Nothing thinking

#26- Fighting against All or Nothing thinking

All or Nothing thinking is a sneaky little trap that stops us from investing time and effort into our top priorities.

When our life is a reflection of All or Nothing, you can expect to be feeling anxious, overwhelmed, frustrated, or disappointed a lot of the time.

These feelings aren't bad, but when they aren't countered with feelings of confidence, love, happiness, or enough-ness our lives begin to feel very out of alignment.

In this episode:

  • The story of the magic penny
  • The beauty of compounding
  • My personal battle with All or Nothing thinking
  • My secret weapon revealed. How you can win your battle against all-or-nothing thinking.

If you are loving this podcast please share it and consider writing a review, so others can find it too.

My biggest heartfelt thank you to those who have gone out of their way to tell me how much they are enjoying the show. You are the best.

Thank you for listening.

#21-Finding Your Vision

#21-Finding Your Vision

Goals are all the buzz this time of year. 

I, like many others, can easily get excited and carried away by that excitement as I make my long list of personal New Years' resolutions.

But time and time again, I have felt that excitement wane, and those goals slip away even within the first month of the year.

The solution I have found to be so powerful and helpful with this is vision.

When we have a vision for what we want our life to look like it makes our goals more meaningful and attainable.

On this episode:

  • Why your current goal-setting habits aren't working for you
  • What Vision is and an example of someone with incredible vision
  • Why Vision is so important and the best solution to overcome your apathy toward goals
  • 8 questions you can ask yourself to help you create and find your own personal vision
