    12. The secret to taking charge of your life

    12. The secret to taking charge of your life

    We can't control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond to them. The secret to taking charge of your life has nothing (much) to do with what happens to you and everything to do with working through those experiences to create the future that you want, and that secret to that is working through our emotions. 

    How we do make it such that things don't happen to us but for us? 

    In this stephisode, I look at a few concrete steps that we all can take to work through our experiences in order to (re)gain agency in our lives. I also chat about how baggage from our past is inevitable... but maybe not such a bad thing! This realization transformed the way I think about baggage and challenging past experiences, and I hope it offers a new perspective to you too. 

    I would love to hear what you think :) Get in touch:

    11. Balance is a verb

    11. Balance is a verb

    My first minisode / mini-stephisode -- thanks Joeri for the catchphrase -- is kinda meta. I've been trying to find a balance lately between all the things that demand my attention and care, and a little note I wrote for myself last year really resonated: Balance is a verb. It's not a destination. There's no one-size-fits-all. Balance is about juggling your energetic outputs and energetic inputs (or investments!) so that you can keep on keeping on without burning out. 

    In this stephisode, I share with you a little exercise I did recently to do a kind of energetic input/output check-in. If you've been grappling with the demands of life lately, or if you've felt like you're burning the candle at both ends, this little reflection might just be the check-in you need.

    10. How to deal with conflict without losing your shit

    10. How to deal with conflict without losing your shit

    Conflict! Gah!! Between fight, flight, or freeze, none of these really help us deal with conflict effectively and meaningfully. When you feel your heart pounding and your breaths getting shorter, is it really possible to engage in conflict without losing your shit?

    In Part 1 of this topic, I chat about why conflict is not a bad thing; in fact, it might be a gift! But how we handle it is key :) We need to place the responsibility of feeling better squarely on our own shoulders and approach conflict with an eye towards using the information it gives us to build better relationships.

    9. Can you be friends with an ex?

    9. Can you be friends with an ex?

    Some people think it's impossible to be friends with an ex. Others believe that to become strangers again is a huge pity given how much of your life you used to share. I used to be in the former camp, but I might've changed my mind. 

    In this episode, I ruminate on whether a platonic friendship with an ex is truly possible and what conditions need to be in place for it to us to do so in a healthy way! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    8. Thinking you're awesome doesn't make you a narcissist

    8. Thinking you're awesome doesn't make you a narcissist

    Life is hard. We talk about positive self-talk ("love yourself!") but worry that acknowledging our strengths -- god forbid! -- makes us seem arrogant or narcissistic. We worry that people will say to us: "So you think you're all that?" 

    Well, it's time to stop playing small. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging and *celebrating* our strengths and merits and virtues! What matters is what we think having them implies -- do we think that people owe us more or do we think we should give more since we have more? 

    In this episode, I reflect on this little detail that makes all the difference. I hope this encouragement for you to step into the light helps you see the light in others ♥️

    As always, journal prompts available over at Instagram. And I would be most delighted if you showed your love with a coffee!

    7. Keep your standards high and expectations low

    7. Keep your standards high and expectations low

    We often navigate the world with expectations about how people ought to treat us and what we ought to receive. But these expectations are just the signal for the deeper value that we are seeking -- we assume that if the expectations are met, then our standards for a good relationship, job, friendship, etc are met.


    But is that really true? 



    In this episode, I ruminate on what it means to keep our standards high -- and enforce those boundaries around the quality of relationships we have -- yet maintain low expectations. This interestingly leads to an easier interaction with the people and events in our lives AND opens up way more possibilities about how those standards might be met :)
