    On Today's Episode:

    The thought of family gatherings gives the best of anxiety. Navigating close relationships and those once or twice a year holiday encounters doesn’t have to be so intimidating with the right tools. 

    The key is recognizing that you have disordered boundaries, and the Boundary Boss, Terri Cole, is back with us again to make this super easy to follow. Terri is a licensed psychotherapist and female empowerment expert. The steps she lays out for you to take the Resentment Inventory are life changing. 

    We all tell ourselves lies to avoid the conflict and get around difficult conversations but this doesn’t make our relationships any better, and it leaves us with more stress than being succinct, accurate, and honest about our preferences from the start.

    By the time you finish this episode you’ll have the skills and strategies you’ll need to identify your disordered boundaries that need work, and catch the amplified emotions that are stemming from childhood traumas.

    On Today's Episode:

    If you’ve struggled with what you see in the mirror, you’re not alone. So many women, beautiful women, struggle with what they see. Our mental health is challenged trying to fit in, looking for love and acceptance, and wanting to somehow feel like you’re good enough.

    This is the episode where it gets real, it gets personal, and it hits home for many of us. Today’s guest is the world renowned award winning hip hop dancing violinist, Lindsey Stirling. She was once humiliated on one of the biggest stages in front of millions of people, and now has over 3 BILLION views on her YouTube channel. She’s worked with some of the biggest names in music and it could have easily never started for her.

    When it comes to matters of the heart, uncovering where our behaviors are doing us more harm than good, and where they are separating us from the things we most love, you have to dig deep and be willing to fight for happiness.

    This is about finding a new normal outside of the lies you’ve convinced yourself of and outside of the comfort zone you’ve created for yourself. This is your opportunity to open your heart and get connected with yourself and the things worth fighting for.

    On Today's Episode:

    There is something called the nice girl syndrome which is an idea and expectation that you have to be nice to be loved and accepted. It leaves the mark of not feeling good enough. Being pleasant, agreeable, and accommodating doesn’t mean that you have to make yourself less than someone else.

    “Becoming and remaining a nice girl, is a kind of malnutrition to the soul of a woman.” -Asia Suler

    What happens to you when you’re always put last on your own list or lucky if you even make your own list? In this episode Lisa is channeling all of her badass energy into exposing how you can be nice and prioritize yourself and communicate your needs. You don’t have to be afraid of speaking up and worried about being rejected or thought less than by the right people in your life.

    Do a gut check with yourself on which one of these myths hit the hardest and come up with a plan to restore your power and balance where there is none.
