S3:E9 // The Power of Slowing Down & Pausing
Right now, we have an unprecedented global slow down. For the first time in recent history, the ENTIRE world is not only asking you to stay home, it's actually enforcing it.For many of us, this is causing internal panic about SO. MANY. THINGS!I'm here to encourage and quite frankly challenge you to step outside your patterns of anxiety, scarcity, and panic in this uncertainty and lean into the power of pausing.As entrepreneur and speaker KC Baker says, "The slower you go, the more you feel."You have an opportunity right now to stop numbing out and FEEL the things you've been avoiding so you can learn more about yourself, deepen your understanding of what you want and desire, and actually take steps to build the life you want.Listen to this episode to gain perspective into how this fucked up time can be a gift, and how to take advantage of the power available to you in slowing down and pausing.

S3:E8 // Are Your Friends Helping or Hindering Your Growth?
In this episode, I chat with my friends/family about the importance of the people you surround yourself with, and how they can either help or hinder your personal growth.With COVID-19 quarantines and other craziness, the importance of community and connection beyond convenience is more important than ever. The ways in which our culture lacks a community-minded perspective have become extremely obvious.Think about it: if people had been following precautions and taking care of their health BEFORE this all blew up, when the virus was still out east, we might not even need to be taking such drastic measures now. Instead, people who were privileged enough to assume their health wouldn't be affected continued to travel, not wash their hands, expose themselves to the compromised, and eventually hoard resources (unnecessarily - what's with the toilet paper? COVID doesn't make you shit your pants, people!).When you choose to spend time with people who care more about their own personal gain and only focus on what's "directly" affecting them, you lose out on the opportunity to build relationships with people who will champion you and hold space for you to become your best self.Self-awareness practices REQUIRE you understand your impact in a community setting, so use some of this to listen to this episode and evaluate your community, your role in it, and whether or not your relationships lift you up or keep you stuck.

S3:E7// Get Your Joy On with the Gratitude Game
In this episode, I share a practice from my book, Get Your Joy On, that can get you out of negative thought patterns and crappy moods quickly: the Gratitude Game!There is no better medicine than gratitude. Giving thanks is infinitely transformative. If someone would give me a pulpit and bullhorn to scream, “EXPRESS MORE GRATITUDE; IT IS YOUR SALVATION,” on a street corner, I would do it.To be clear, gratitude is different from saying, “Thank you” as a compulsion to conditioned politeness. Gratitude is a consciousness, just like joy. As with so many of our states of being, we don’t express it. We feel it a little instead of participating fully in that consciousness and move on.Ugh. Writing that hurt me. I used to do it all the time. I still do it sometimes. It’s a bummer every single missed opportunity.Gratitude is beautiful for so many reasons. Perhaps my favorite is that it not only fills you up, it fills up the people you express it to. When you tell me how appreciative you are of the beautiful way your best friend showed up in your time of need, I feel good. Goodness is contagious; I love it when you feel loved because it reminds me there are good people in the world.Let’s play the Gratitude Game. If you want to get to joy quickly, this is your opportunity.

S3:E5 // Are You Living in the "One Day" Myth?
How many times have you told yourself, "One day, my life will _______"? And how often is that blank filled with the things you most deeply desire for your life? The things that you know you want but for some reason secretly believe you'll never have?The "One Day" Myth is this idea we've all tacitly bought into that our lives can and will only feel the way we want them to in some far-off distant future when we've finally:lost the weightgotten the promotionfound the timegotten marriedhad a kidmoved awaygotten out of debt...or whatever else we think is between us and the life we want to live.

S3:E3 // How Addiction + Divorce Lead to Living Your Best Life with Zack Blakeney
This week's episode features one of my favorite humans, transformational coach and all-around badass, Zack Blakeney. In part 1 of this two-part interview, Zack teaches us about recoding, changing behavior patterns, and shares his own journey with a raw vulnerability that's just plain old sexy.Seriously, hearing about his battle with anxiety, porn and drug addiction and how that lead to his divorce gives me so much hope for what's possible.

S3:E2 // Resolutions Suck
Every new year is an opportunity to reset your mindset, perspective, energy, goals, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. But, let's be real: Resolutions are fucking lame as shit and almost never work.Does that mean we should all say "Fuck it" and forget about the spirit of a new calendar year? I don't think so. Instead, let's reframe resolutions into something I feel is far more powerful and sustainable: intentions. Why intentions? Guess you'll have to listen to find out! Here's why I think most New Year's Resolutions fail and why I feel setting an intention for the year works better.

S2:E23 // Sovereignty and Power with Nisha Moodley
Finally, my infamous mentor, Nisha Moodley joins me for an intriguing discussion about personal sovereignty and power!Sovereignty is a leadership quality I learned about through Nisha's program, Soul of Leadership, and HOLY GUACAMOLE is it powerful! It's empowered me to have healthier boundaries at work and at home, show up in a more powerful way for my clients and loved ones, and has helped me recognize my own personal power. As Nisha discusses the ways power has been distorted by society and its systems, she calls us back to true, authentic power — the kind that can't be taken away and that truly sets us free. No matter which way you slice it, this conversation is important and has the ability to true catalyze a change in perspective.Nisha is opening enrollment for her course, Soul of Leadership, is this month.

S2:E22 // Coming Out with Ricky Murray
In this episode, I chat with my friend and co-worker, Ricky Murray, about how self-awareness played a role in his coming out story, and how coming out played a role in his self-awareness journey. As I've mentioned before, it's important we recognize all stories are valuable and important, regardless of credentials or things society deems as "qualified." Storytelling has the power to connect and change us all if we let it.I hope through hearing Ricky's story and journey, you're encouraged and empowered to begin sharing your own in whatever way feels best to you. Ultimately, this interview reinforced my belief that when 1 of us does the work, it gives more of us permission to be ourselves — free and joyful!

S2:E21 // "Seriousness" Break ft. The Reel Nerds Podcast
I'll be officially debuting my book, Get Your Joy™, at Denver Comic Con 2019 (DCC19)! One of the joy builders in the book is called "Take a Break. Or Two. Or Three." The main idea behind this is twofold:If you aren't enjoying the journey, the destination won't matter. It's important to be present and give yourself lots of love, space, and time to rest, recharge, and fuel up before continuing to press forward.Science is now backing what we already know: burnout is real and taking breaks is necessary to get the results you want. In fact, people who actually take breaks and vacations get promoted faster and earn more money.Ultimately, what I'm saying is that taking life too seriously leads to misery. As much as everything matters, it also doesn't if your quality of life totally sucks! You won't be effective or joyful, and if you're neither, what's the point of working at all? Let's take a seriousness break and enjoy my interview on the Reel Nerds podcast from DCC18. We chat about my writing, finding inspiration, fun sci-fi things we like, and other nerdy stuff!

S2:E20 // Get Your Joy On (the book!)
Hi, friend! This episode is special to me because it marks the release of my book, Get Your Joy On™: Unleash Joy In Your Life, One Small Action at a Time. Not only is this book my offering of love, wisdom, and courage to you, it's a huge marker in my life's journey for how far I've come.The very first book I ever wrote came out of me from a place of deep shame and guilt (it's a fiction book called In the Mind of Revenge if you're curious). I was deeply depressed and stewing in a broth of self-loathing. I literally named my main character Shame because it's all I could identify with. It's where I was living, 24/7.Now, 8 years later, I'm STOKED to share what I've learned with you. I'm grateful and humbled these lessons have shown up to heal me, and that I have the honor of sharing them with you.I care deeply about making the world a place full of more love and joy than it is pain and suffering. I believe I can do that with and for YOU. I truly believe you and I, through self-awareness and practicing compassion, can create more change than we'd imagine.So, please enjoy the first few chapters of the book!
