“Are not there little chapters in everybody's life, that seem to be nothing, and yet affect all the rest of the history?” W.M. Thackeray
Welcome to The Little Chapters - a podcast about living life the want, not the one you think you should.
Kayte Ferris and Jessica Rose Williams are two friends who met online through their intention and striving to live on their own terms. We have each changed our lives in big and small ways over the last few years, and continue to learn and explore our own little chapters of life, work and creativity.
This podcast is for like-minded souls treading their own path to a life a little different - let it be your permission slip, your company on the road, and your reminder that you’re not alone. We’ll be diving into conversations on mindset, lifestyle, creativity, expectations and all the roadblocks that come with a decision to exist outside of the norm. We hope to keep you company and kindle your curiosity for a life lived differently.
The End - Letting Go
In our very last episode of the little chapters we pull back the curtain on why the podcast is ending and dive into the ins and outs of letting go of a creative project. Thank you so much to everyone who has listened, rated, reviewed and shared this podcast. We love you and we'll miss you x
After short break we return with one of the biggest topics there is - purpose. But is it really that big a topic? We discuss what we mean when we think about purpose, how it guides and helps us in our lives and how it so often more simple than we think.
Likability: We’re All Chasing Likes But Is It Belonging We’re Really After?
Do you want to be liked or do you want to feel like you belong? Brene Brown's Netflix documentary has got us thinking and discussing our relationship with likability this week. Also, guess which one of us used to buy likes on Instagram?
Word of the Year: What Happens After January
We're all used to setting New Year Resolutions or a word of the year in our case, but what actually happens after January? What happens when it's a struggle to try and reach those goals you set? This week we check in with how we've lived our word of the year so far and share tips on how to find your own word of the year (no it's not too late). We also answer a question from a listener who is having difficulties asking for help.
The chatty intro is back and we’re diving into the elusive waters of friendship this week. Jess explains marble theory but how many marbles does Kayte have left? Sex and the City is held accountable for disappointments, failures and generally leading us down the garden path of friendship. What’s your stance on female friendships? Grab a cuppa and hit play to join us and hear ours.
Lack vs Abundance
Jess and Kayte have always talked a lot about mindset, and these conversations often revolve around having either a mindset of lack or of abundance. In this episode we lengthen and deepen our conversation around this topic, defining the terms, talking about how it shows up for us in both work and life, touching upon gender issues as well as school sports days.
A lovely listen!
