    Clean Your Plate & Forced Apology Mentality- The Silencing of Our Intuition

    Clean Your Plate & Forced Apology Mentality- The Silencing of Our Intuition

    Hey Happy Humans! Were Back for another episode where we dive into this idea surrounding the "finish your plate" mentality and the "You better apologize now" mindset and how we inadvertently teach our tiny humans to not learn the skills they need to listen to their intuition and learn the skill of empathy. Come along for another rabbit trail adventure with me, myself, and I as we dive into some chit-chat and sleepy-time tea.

    Hi! We're Back; Let's take a Deep Breath

    It's been a minute, but we're back! I have been taking the week of socials so we are going to jump back in as y'all have been so kind sharing in my DM's and comments you've been waiting. This episode is a restart and a possible reset- she doesn't have a total point but I hope it has something for you.

    Ep. 31: You Asked- I Answered: My Trauma Dictated Dating Life

    Ep. 31: You Asked- I Answered: My Trauma Dictated Dating Life

    TW: In this episode, I broadly touch on sensitive subjects so I wanted to give you a heads up. So many of you have requested a dating episode speaking specifically to my dating life and experience and as always I wanted to be honest with you. 



    In this episode, I share how I unknowingly was guided by trauma when it came to dating and how now literally decades later I can see how that directed the relationships I was in before meeting Blake who was the complete opposite THANK GOD! I honestly was so unsure with this episode but eventually ended up deciding to post it. I hope that it encourages you in any way and if you feel it is meant for someone please feel free to share. Also, I have included several hotlines that I hope help if needed. As always; I love you, Happy Humans.

    Ep. 30 The Toxicity of Achievement Culture

    Ep. 30 The Toxicity of Achievement Culture

    In Episode 30 we dive into the idea of Achievement culture and the toxicity it creates in the cycle of life. It starts from the womb and follows us to the tomb whether it's in early developmental skills like walking, talking, or school even as young as reading, and follows us to college, jobs, careers, etc. The idea is that we have to always be doing more, being more, and attaining more. We talk about how this hinders us not only as parents but as individuals as well. Come join us for the whole episode and also hear all about Trader Joe's new pineapple juice discovery! As always I'm happy you're here and thank you for listening.

    Ep. 29: The Certainty of Being Uncertain

    Ep. 29: The Certainty of Being Uncertain

    Did you ever grow up thinking that because your parents were adults they knew everything and the exact reason they did the things they did? That every decision they made they were doing it because they were certain and had knowledge only an adult or parent would and at some point we would reach an age and magically that knowledge would arrive for us? But as time went on and you graduated H.S., went to college, tried to find a job, figure out a career, or even got married and had kids you realized you still felt completely unsure of if everythinG you were doing you were right; like how did your parents know because if you were honest you still felt like a clueless kid? 



    In this episode, we touch on the idea that the only thing we can really be certain of especially in the last 2 years is that nothing is certain and that with so many things uncertainty is the only thing we are certain of. We touch on the fact that sometimes being uncertain can put us in a place of being on the defense and what we can do to help ourselves when that happens and a fun question to ask provided once again by Blake and I's old pre-marital counselor. Regardless it will hopefully be a good time that encourages you and reminds you that I am so grateful you're here. 



    Can't wait for it!

    xoxo, 

    Me

Thank you

Every time I listen to this, it’s like hanging out with a friend. I have followed Amanda on TikTok & insta for a while, but this podcast hits differently. I have learned so much and feel like I have begun to heal and reframe how I want to parent my kids one day. Thank you so much for being a friend to all.
