No Cure For Being Human

Have you ever had a moment that makes you appreciate how good things are? 
I like to pay attention to synchronicities in life and I recently had a few that came in with the message that was telling me to pause and appreciate. 
It made me wonder about why our fear of pain—whether it’s losing someone we love or the fear of failure—often holds us back. And yet how do we look that fear in the face and have the courage to embrace the imperfection of being human and risk the vulnerability that comes along with it?  
Today we’re talking about fear, mortality, and what it means to live a full life. Oh yeah, we’re going there.

People Pleasing

Wednesday May 29, 2024

Wednesday May 29, 2024

Have you ever felt like your mental radar is constantly tuned into what would make other people happy rather than what you actually want? 
Like hypothetically, maybe Mom wants you and the family to come over for dinner this weekend. It would just break her heart if she wasn’t able to see you. But your spouse really doesn’t want to go and the kids can’t be bothered. They want to know what grandma is cooking because they only like certain things. And if you do go, you know that you need to eat more than you want of whatever she’s cooking because otherwise she’ll get her feelings hurt. 
That’s just one of the many ways you can find yourself constantly bending over backward to please others. And yet, where are you in the process? What about what YOU want? You can’t even remember the last time you asked yourself “What do I want?” 
Does it feel like you're stuck in a cycle of prioritizing everyone else's needs above your own? And how does people-pleasing impact your weight loss efforts? 
In this episode, we'll dive into the depths of people-pleasing and its sneaky impact on your weight loss journey. We'll cover the root causes, how it adds an extra layer of complexity to weight loss, and most importantly, how you can learn to let YOU be one of the people that you please in your life too.
So, are you ready to untangle the complicated knot of people-pleasing and loosen it up a little to make weight loss easier on yourself? 
Aw yeah! Let’s dive in.

I'm afraid to feel my feelings

Wednesday May 22, 2024

Wednesday May 22, 2024

Have you ever been told “You’re too sensitive”? Have you ever felt like your emotions were just a little too much and too overwhelming to handle? Like you’re afraid to let your feelings be okay because deep down, you assume you're the problem?
I mean, how embarrassing is it to cry in front of your boss, right? Pull yourself together, girl! (Oh wait, is that just me?)
So what we end up doing is, instead of looking those big, powerful feelings in the eye, it’s so much easier to stuff them away with food or drink and focus on the idea that you’ve got to keep it all together, because otherwise you’ll be a puddle of gooey, messy emotions on the floor. 
What if you’re NOT the problem? What if you CAN handle those big, powerful emotions?  
What if there were tiny steps you could take to allow your feelings and start embracing them, instead of running away? 
Today, we’re talking about feeling your feels. I’m opening up about some emotional stuff I’ve been through and my journey from ignoring my feelings and landing in the doctor’s office, to baby stepping my way towards the freedom that lies on the other side of the fear of feeling what you feel. 
We’ll talk about tangible ways to dip your toe into the water of feeling your feelings, and how to stop thinking that you’re the problem.
Ready to face what you fear with baby steps towards personal peace?? 
Aw yeah! Let’s go!
