This week's podcast guest is Majella McMahon of The Stylery Co. Majella and I met in 2016 when I was asked to speak at an event and had not a fucking clue what to wear because I lived in mum jeans and baggy black tees.... turns out Majella is actually a damn wizard who helps you discover who you are and how to express that visually. Her core business until this year has been styling women 1:1 - if you need to find something to pull off a certain look, you can be sure Majella either knows where it can be found, or she will find it for you.She turned FORTY this year and has done the most spectacularly beautiful transition in terms of her online presence to create space for all the incredible dreams she has moving forward. I LOVE Majella’s ability to dream things up, and then make them happen, with all the confidence in the in between that it just will be so.She recently launched her very first online course, providing new ways to work with her that I'm loving seeing pop up all over my social media feeds.I hope you enjoy my chat with Majella, and make sure to check her out all over socials at @thestylerco.

Last month I had Guyala Bayles (@guyala_lala) takeover my Instagram for a day as part of Share the Mic Now Australia and to finish up the day we did an Instagram live. I wanted to share the audio from that here because it was such an incredible conversation. We talked about youth suicide, being able to admit when we’re not ok, the importance of culture, connection and community in mental health.Guyala is a 21yr old Birri Gubba and Wonnarua model, actor and poet, signed to Chic management. She is a passionate multidisciplinary artist who speaks openly about her experiences to break the stereotypes around Aboriginality. She uses her experiences, that have impacted her and continue to shape her into the woman she is today to powerfully express herself through spoken word and use her public platform and voice to shed light on issues affecting First Nations people and the injustices of this world.The #ShareTheMicNow social media campaign was created a few months back in the US to magnify Black women and the important work that they’re doing in order to catalyse the change that will only come when we truly hear each other’s voices.Here in Australia, it is time to hear from Indigenous people - which is where #sharethemicnowaustralia comes in. In the words of @sharethemicnowaustralia "inspired by the #sharethemicnow movement in the US, we brought it here as a tool for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to speak directly to the Nation about real justice issues, about our fight, our culture, our history and importantly our future. All us mob have different things we want to say, but one thing is certain, we need a Mic in order for you to hear our Voice."TW: This audio contains discussion of suicide and self harm.

I've been teaching lettering online since 2016... and decided this week I'm quitting. And have decided that this time, I'm going to share the shit while I'm *in* the shit because endings are complex right?! Relieved and scared, excited and also overwhelmed with the hard shit that comes with winding things up. All the thoughts in this episode, probably went around in circles 100 times, but still believe it's worth sharing our stories even when they're messy and not nicely packaged.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyahOr check out my new podcast The Luscious.

Yes, I'm sticking with the one-word titles, at least for now. And this week I have something very fun for you.I’ve decided to bring you interviews with some humans who I think are doing braveish things in the world, and my very first guest is my podcasting fairy-godmother Karly Nimmo. Karly has been a huge part of me launching this podcast, stepping into new spaces, and learning to show up and speak my truth - which is something she lives out herself, and also does for a bunch of humans who work with her. She’s a very rad human and I’m very excited for you to hear from her.Things we talked about this episode:Karly on InstagramKarly’s Podcasts : Karlosophies / Rock Your Mic RightMy new project The Luscious

I've decided that we're going with one word titles from now on (for how long is anyone's guess!), because coming up with titles has been holding me up from showing up here, and I don't want that to continue. So this week, chats on sexuality, attraction, and where that's all sitting for me right now.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

I'm glad *that's* over.
This week kicked me in the butt. Hard. And I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone on that - I heard it all around the place. I thought I'd share a little of my survival strategies for the weeks that I know are going to be a lot.The book I mentioned in the episode was The Secret Language of Your Body by Inna Segal.Come join my book club at lissamyah.com

It's ok not to have it all figured out...
I've been reflecting recently on some of the things that hold me back from speaking my truth, and this idea that I've got to have my shit sorted before I can talk about it is definitely up there. So some thoughts this week on showing up unapologetically you (because yes please, more of that), and on speaking your truth even while you're still working shit out.Interview I mentioned during this episode : Body Love ShowCome hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

My "one word" for 2020
This episode was going to be all about my word for 2020, then most of the time was spent talking about my word for 2019. But the bonus is, you get to hear about both!I also mentioned Karly Nimmo, who you can find here : www.karlynimmo.com and my new Braveish Book Club, which you can sign up for here : lissamyah.com/bookclub.

Surrender... and other churchy things.

Learning to Trust Myself
Learning to trust myself has been a huge part of my recovery from church induced trauma (that's my new phrase, I don't care if it's not a thing, I'm using it, for now). This episode talks a little about that, about houses built with bricks, shit, and gold (you're so welcome), and about what it's been like to walk away from church a few times over.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

Other People's Opinions
Some thoughts this week on being unapologetic in the way we do life because altering ourselves in order to try and control other people’s opinions of us never actually works anyway. Which I feel like we all know, but frequently need reminding of.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

Loving the most unloveable parts
13 episodes in and I still hate writing show descriptions. This week's episode scraped in just before my self-imposed deadline because I may have been a little harsh on myself in places this week. Ok, a lot harsh. And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone. If you listen, and this week's episode resonates with you, I'd love to hear from you.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

As someone who is currently parenting three teenagers, some days are a lot... some days I wonder if I'm getting it all wrong. Today's episode was recorded mid parenting-shame-spiral and is a reminder for me, and hopefully you, that we can do this! And that honesty is good.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

I've avoided talking much about where I'm at in terms of faith for a number of reasons, but this episode is a little insight into my current thoughts on the topic, as well as some of the reasons I've avoided it until now.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

Holding space for my own discomfort
Last episode I talked a little about holding space for other people's discomfort... This week, I get to put my money where my mouth is and hold space for my own. It's, well, uncomfortable... but I genuinely believe that there's value in sharing the difficult stuff, not just the shiny happy stuff.Come hang with me on Insta @lissamyah

Holding space for someone else's discomfort
aka. you don't have to 'fix' them.When someone expresses some form of pain, discomfort, anger, usually what they need is to be seen, heard, and validated. Often, we feel the need to try and fix it, 'cheer them up', 'encourage them' - which mostly ends in them instead feeling silenced, invalidated.This episode is my thoughts on how to hold space for someone when they're in that place, or when we think they are (spoiler, we're not always right).Come hang out with me on Instagram @lissamyah

Why I left
In January of 2010 I packed up my then five children (aged 3 months - 6 years), and walked away from pretty much everything - marriage, church, home, community. It wasn't exactly a decision that was long in the planning, even a month before I couldn't have imagined taking that step. But here we are. It's a thing that happened, and in this episode I talked a little about the lead up, and the why.

Sending nudes and loving my curves
Ok, the title is a little click-baity, but I did talk about those things in this episode. Along with learning to treat myself well, becoming more comfortable in my own skin, and getting my titties out in public.Mentioned in this episode:Embrace Documentary : bodyimagemovement.comCome hang with me on Instagram @lissamyah

Dating, curiosity, and not being an asshole
Dating in your mid 30's when you've been off the market since before mobile phones were smart is a lot. Over the last two years I've tested out pretty much every dating app available, been speed dating, and in the process, learnt a tonne of things about myself.Mentioned in this episode:Mark Manson : markmanson.net/fuck-yesJohn Kim : www.theangrytherapist.comCome hang with me on Instagram @lissamyah
