Lets Talk About That: Being Different
We're back!! Kicking off this week with episode 24 of Lets Talk About That we wanted to talk about being different. Everyone grows up and they are not always going to stay the same forever.
Over time, as we get older, we all change. Our interests are different, the people we were once friends with may have gone their separate ways, and what is important to us changes.
Being different is okay, there is nothing wrong with changing and becoming the person that you were meant to be!
Lets Talk About That: Reverse Your Thoughts
"Every problem has a solution so every negative has a positive. Every cloud has a silver lining!" -Jwan
In this episode we talk about reversing your thoughts and changing the way you think! When you are at a hard point in your life and you just feel stuck instead coming up with excuses as to why it won't get better start to think of ways you can change your situation.
The trick to this is you have to want things to change and to actively try to make your situation better. There is always a solution and one way or another it will get better for you!
Lets Talk About That: Be Your Best Self
Becoming the best version of yourself does not just happen overnight. It takes time and patience to get where you want to be. You will always learn something new about yourself because you're always growing.
Not only are you always learning but you have to remember to take this journey for yourself and not for others. It does not matter what other people think about you as long as you're happy with who you are as a person!
Lets Talk About That: Uncomfortable
Do you need to move on to the next part of your life but you're nervous or not comfortable with it yet? Most of the time we think that the word uncomfortable means something bad when really it can be a good thing!
Eventually we find ourselves living in what feels comfortable and that can prevent us from reaching our full potential. At some point we must take a step out of our comfort zone and into what may make you nervous or uncomfortable. The only way to try new things and to make dreams come true is to just go for it and reach outside the box.
Lets Talk About That: Refocus
It can be easy to get out of control and lose focus on what makes you happy. Sometimes we get caught up in our day to day lives and the parts of the day that upset us when we should instead try to refocus on the better side of things.
There is always at least one good thing that happened throughout your day whether its seeing your friends and family or having a good meal or a stranger smiling at you. What ever it may be that good part of your day is what you should focus on. Eventually you wont even have to search for it and it makes all the difference in the world when you stay positive and look to the bright side of everything.
Lets Talk About That: Forever
In this episode we talk about forever and by forever we mean "do I want people to love me or do I want to love myself forever?"
Often times we value other peoples opinions more than we value ourselves. But in reality the only opinion that truly matters is from yourself and God. The only person that is going to be with you no matter what, forever, is yourself and God, so why not try to learn to love yourself the way you love others.
Once you can do that life becomes so much better and it puts you on the path to being the best person you can be.
Lets Talk About That: Secret to Life
In this weeks episode we ask, what is the secret to life?
One answer that is consistent is from Boy Meets World which is "people change people." The circle of people we surround ourselves with is very important; they can help us in our journeys or they can bring us down.
Some people are meant to always be in our lives and some are there for the right amount of time at a certain point in our lives. However, that is up to us to determine who gets to be apart of our journeys, our story and who doesn't.
Lets Talk About That: Levels Continued
In a previous episode we discussed levels and how people can be at different point in their lives or different chapters than others. In this episode we expand on that a little more and talk about when to stay in that season of life and when to move on to the next.
Sometimes you are meant to stay in a season of life to learn and grow and become better, but at some point you need to move on to the next. If you don't either something pushes you into that direction or you end up living in your comfort zone and not taking that next step.
What season of life are you in? Is it time to move on to the next chapter? Let us know and make sure to tune in next week!
Lets Talk About That: Gravity
What is gravity? Gravity can mean a variety of different things. In this episode we talk about how gravity can pull and push you in all sorts of directions, but in the end it puts you on the right path to where you're meant to go.
Gravity can be positive and negative, it can force you into different directions and guide you when you don't know where to go next.
What has gravity done to you in your life? Let us know and make sure to tune in next week!
Lets Talk About That: Advice
Every once in a while we need a little advice from someone about life or something we might be going through. What has been the best advice you have received in life?
There is always something someone has told us that we carry with us day to day. Advice is a powerful tool but its a matter of taking the advice and not throwing it to the side.
Tell us about your best advice and make sure to tune in next week!
Lets Talk About That: Letting Go
Letting go of something is one of the hardest things to do but why? It sounds so simple and it makes sense to let go of something you can't control or that doesn't give you peace. However, the mind is a powerful thing and the simplest things can sometimes be the hardest.
In this weeks episode we talk about why it is so difficult and how life is easier once you learn to let go.
What are you holding on to? Is it hard for you to let something go? Let us know and make sure to tune in next week!
Lets Talk About That: Levels
In life everyone goes through different chapters and experience different levels at different points in their life. No one is on the same path in life and may not go through the same things at the same time.
Sometimes we are at one level and someone else could be at a higher or lower level than you. Which leaves us wondering how do we level up? How do we grow? How do we support and/or get on the same level as someone else?
Listen in to this weeks podcast and you just might find the answer to your questions!
Lets Talk About That: Money
In episode 12 of our podcast we wanted to talk about money. Money has great power over our lives and forces people to go in one of two directions with it.
People can go in the direction of letting money take over their lives thinking it will bring happiness. Or they can go in the direction of being thankful for what they have and using money where it is needed.
In what way does money impact your life? Let us know and make sure to tune in to next weeks episode!
