    Ep 225: Change Happens When You're Looking The Other Way (The Birthday Episode)

    Ep 225: Change Happens When You're Looking The Other Way (The Birthday Episode)

    It's my birthday week! I'm turning 45. And every year around this time, I do a birthday episode looking back and looking ahead.
    This year's theme is about the quiet changes that happen when you're distracted, or busy, or not paying attention.
    Last year on my birthday I was convinced that something HUGE was going to happen in my 44th year. I thought I had an intuition about it. I journaled my heart out about what was coming for me. And then...when I approached the end of 2023 and then eventually the end of my 44th year, I was disappointed that what I thought was a premonition hadn't come true.
    Instead, what I found was that I fundamentally changed in the last year. Through a series of events, heart aches, conversations, and maturity, I find myself at a really different place than I was last June. And while it might not be the seismic event I was anticipating, it has been earth shifting all the same.

    Ep 223: You Only Die Once (a conversation about living with Jodi Wellman)

    Ep 223: You Only Die Once (a conversation about living with Jodi Wellman)

    Jodi Wellman is focused on death. And she wants you to think about it more, too.
    Death is (clearly) not a popular topic, and something most of us avoid thinking about at all costs. But Jodi believes that knowing you have something to lose can help you live like you mean it. Her new book You Only Die Once: How To Make It To The End With No Regrets can walk you through making the most of your time on this earth.
    In this episode, author and speaker Jodi Wellman shares 5 ways to live like you're dying:

    Count your Mondays (quantifying your time can be remarkably clarifying)

    Diagnose the dead zones (areas in life that feel dead inside)

    Identify your deathbed pre-grets (regrets-in-the-making that can still be course-corrected)

    Live wider (with vitality) and deeper (with meaning): identify a list of enlivening endeavors 

    Pick one small thing to take action on at a time

    BONUS: 5 Things About Modern Friendship (with Anna Goldfarb)

    BONUS: 5 Things About Modern Friendship (with Anna Goldfarb)

    Obviously friendship is a big topic around here, but one of the aspects we don't touch on much is how these important relationships have changed in modern culture. We now have hundreds of connections in our daily lives, where our ancestors probably never met that many people in their entire lifetime.
    Friendship writer Anna Goldfarb brings us 5 Things to think about in our modern friendships that she expounds upon in her new book Modern Friendship: How To Nurture Our Most Valued Connections.
    Called “the New York Times’ friendship correspondent,” Anna Goldfarb's reporting on friendships has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, TIME , Vox, and more.

    Ep 222: Stephen King Starter Kit Part II (What To Read + What To Skip)

    This episode is ONLY book recommendations. The original Stephen King Starter Kit episode has more of the author's biography and why I think reading Stephen King matters. You do NOT need to listen to Part I to enjoy Part II.
    LISTEN TO STEPHEN KING STARTER KIT Part I
    In this episode I'm sharing my personal favorites, what I would recommend if you don't like scary/horror (because there are plenty to choose from!), what I recommend for teenagers, and which Stephen King books I would never recommend you start with (even though they're popular).

    BONUS: Is Everyone Happier Than Me? (4 Ways To Be Happier Online with author Sarah Bragg)

    BONUS: Is Everyone Happier Than Me? (4 Ways To Be Happier Online with author Sarah Bragg)

    It's a question we've all asked ourselves at some point....Is everyone happier than me?
    A relatable thought made worse by the perfection of social media and knowledge that life could go take us on a hundred different paths. Did we choose the right one?
    It's also the title of Sarah Bragg's new book, where she explores this topic with essays and stories from her own life and parenthood.
    In this episode, Sarah gives us 4 ways to be happier online (since that's such a huge contributing factor to this question).
    I loved this conversation with Sarah and know I'm not the only one kept awake at night with comparison and curiosity.
