    Podcast Transcript: I know you’re tired. I know you are so tired of all of this. Of the not knowing. Of the waiting for it to end. Of the not knowing how long it’s actually going to last. I know you are tired of feeling like things are spinning. And you’re not in control. I know you’re tired of grasping for something solid to hold onto— for anything that tells you you’re not in this all alone. I know you want your routine back. I know you want your normal back— your regular old life. The everyday days that seem like such a distant memory now. I know you’re tired of worrying. And thinking. And overthinking. And planning. I know you’re tired of trying to predict what tomorrow is going to throw you, and whether you’ll be ready for it when it does. I know you’re tired of buying too much. And storing too much. And not being able to hug your family. I know you are tired of not being able to see your friends, and not being able to go places, and having to cancel all of the things on your calendar you’ve been looking forward to for so long. I know you’re tired, love. From all of it. From trying. And doing. And feeling like you’re failing. But mostly, from trying to keep yourself and everyone around you safe by giving up. By giving up so very much. For something so small. And so invisible. And so terrifying. I know it feels like this is never going to end. But it will. And trust me when I say that you are not the only one feeling the way you are. Like you just can’t keep it together. Like what the world is asking for you to carry keeps getting heavier and heavier. We will get through this. We will. But until we do, let me just reassure you. You are not alone. And we are all in this together. So just keep focusing on doing the best you can, with the worst you get. Hang on, love. Hang on.

    "I think it's brave. How you never stop believing." (Love)

    "I think it's brave. How you never stop believing." (Love)

    Do you always wonder when it will be your turn? In today's episode, Emma reminds us that nothing that is meant for us will ever get lost on its way there.

    Podcast Transcript: I think it’s brave. I do. How you never stop believing in other people. In their ability to change— to be better— to love you more than they do. I think it’s brave that you never seem to run out of space in your heart to fit in new love stories. To keep hoping. To keep— going. I think it’s brave. I think that YOU are brave. I do. But— I also want you to eventually realize that not everyone and everything that dances into your life deserves a permanent place to stay. Not everyone deserves— you. And you know that you only have two hands. And you can’t hold on to everything. You just can’t. And you know this— I know you do. But when you choose to hold on to the things that are trying their hardest to pull away from you, it makes it THAT much harder to hold on to the gentler things in this life. The delicate things. The beautiful things. When you are always fighting, your hands are always full of tension and your eyes are always distracted— your hands are trying like hell to hang on to things that maybe were never meant to be yours. And your eyes? They are ever-focused on what is leaving you. And not on what has stayed. So— loosen your grasp. Just a little. Nothing that is meant for you will get lost on it’s way there, love. Nothing.

    "There is a reason for this. Yes, even this." (Perspective)

    Do you constantly ask yourself why you're going through the things you are? In today's episode, Emma hands us a little dose of hope for the uncertain times.

    Podcast Transcript: I wrote Untangling during one of the more tumultuous times in my life— last summer. For those of you currently reading it, just make sure you don’t miss the acknowledgments section. Just don’t. It tells a little more of the story. And you won’t want to miss it. Untangling is a book first about loss— and then, and most importantly, about growth. And for all of you, I am going to let you in on a little secret. Two weeks after I finished writing this book— after I finished navigating all the chapters of loss and growth and healing— I ran headfirst into the person that made the entire journey to get there worth it. Now, that’s a story for another book— but I do want to remind all of you who are out there searching— that life has its plans. It does. Life has a purpose for what it puts us through, and how long it takes for us to get there. Life has a purpose for every no. For every not yet. For every goodbye. And I can’t tell you how long you are going to need to wait, or where (or from whom) your growth will ultimately come from. All I can promise you (just like the story I tell in Untangling) is that this life puts things in your path to steer you in the direction you need to go. There IS a reason for what you’re walking through. There is always a reason, love. So if you’re walking through the darkness right now— through the chaos, the confusion— just hang on. Hang on because your ‘one day’ is coming. It is. And it’s incredible.

    "One day, someone will walk in and get it right. Where everyone else got it completely wrong." (Love)

    "One day, someone will walk in and get it right. Where everyone else got it completely wrong." (Love)

    Does it feel like it's just never going to happen? In today's episode, Emma reminds us how time works when it comes to the things that are ultimately right for our hearts. 
    If you could talk to you, this is what it would sound like. In under five-minute clips, the Life Letters™ explores the topics of growth, change, self-love, relationships, and happiness.

    Podcast Transcript: One day, things aren’t going to be quite so heavy. They aren’t going to seem so confusing. So chaotic. So – seemingly out of control. One day, all of the you’re-not-the-ones and the I-don’t-feel-that-ways and the goodbyes are actually going to have a place. And they are going to make sense. And even more than just making sense— one day, things are going to be right. They are going to be good. And you are going to be happy. Happy. Because one day, love, someone is going to walk into your life and get it absolutely right where everybody else got it completely wrong. They are going to say the things to you that you have always longed to hear. They are going to hold your hand and brush the hair from your face without you even asking. They are going to know what to say. And when to say it. And they will just know when a hug will fix all of the things that words cannot. One day, your person is going to walk into your life. And change everything. So the trick is, sweet soul, while you are working through all your almosts, just don’t let them make you lose hope. In what you’re looking for. In what you’re waiting for. Just because it’s taking longer than you’d hoped doesn’t mean it isn’t coming. It is. So don’t leave before you finally see what this life has been pushing you towards. It is going to be worth it. I promise.

    "For anyone who is caught in the middle." (Change)

    "For anyone who is caught in the middle." (Change)

    Are you caught in the middle? Between a life you've outgrown and one that isn't quite ready for you? In today's episode, Emma reminds us how most big change works.
    If you could talk to you, this is what it would sound like. In under five-minute clips, the Life Letters™ explores the topics of growth, change, self-love, relationships, and happiness. Hosted by author Emma Grace of Instagram’s hugely popular 'Live in the Details,' the Life Letters™ will hand you a daily dose of the words you never knew you always needed to hear.

    Podcast Transcript: Most change isn’t the big, cataclysmic, shift-everything-in-your-whole-life kind of change. But that is often what we think, isn’t it? Because those are often the worries that infiltrate our hearts and minds. The worst case scenarios— the what-ifs. But as we walk the roads of our lives— what we find is actually quite the opposite, isn’t it? Most change happens so very slowly that we can’t even see it happening until it has already happened. And I’ll tell you how it works. One day, we simply make a decision. Maybe it’s a conscious choice— maybe it’s not. But we make this single choice to do something differently than we did the day before. And then we do it the next day. And the next. And all of a sudden, we have a new routine. And when that routine lasts for long enough, it tilts the direction of entire lives. And that choice— that routine— can be good or bad. It can tilt us in amazing ways— or hurtful ways. But no matter what circumstances surround our decisions everyday, one thing is always very, very true. It is impossible to move away from one thing without moving in the direction of something else. Look, I know it’s hard when you’re caught in the middle. In the place where you’re trying so hard to step out of a life that isn’t right for you. And into one that is. I know it is so hard to keep going when you’re tired. And you’re trying. But all around you, you just can’t see things changing. They are. Trust me. Think of how a flower grows. You can’t ever see it, but it happens just that same. We notice when the sprout emerges from the ground. We notice the flower when it emerges. But we don’t see— we can’t see— all the things that happen in-between. That’s where you are. Don’t stop growing when you are going towards something so amazing. Have faith in the process that is shaping you.
