    Ep. 136 Accepting Compliments

    Ep. 136 Accepting Compliments

    Raise your hand if you have a hard time accepting compliments. I hope that we all have our hands raised. I know I do. But why is that? Social Scientists have a lot of ideas why, and we can talk about those in this episode, but it all boils down to why we bat that compliment away and don’t receive the nice gift that has been given to us. That’s not right, is it? It’s not a sign of humility and meekness to not accept compliments, but it is a way to not create connections in your life. Listen to this episode to find out more about how to accept compliments and why that’s important.

    Ep. 127 What Confident People Say

    Ep. 127 What Confident People Say

    Confident people use certain words and tone of voice that reflect they are okay with who they are and that they accept their strengths and weaknesses. Confident people don't over-explain or desperately need other people to understand their choices. Confidence doesn't put other people down, which reveals our insecurities. Confident people can be happy for other people. Heidi shares many situations and phrases to use to show up confidence and when to stay confidently quiet.

    Ep. 135 The Ripple Effects of a Confident Mother: Alisha's Story

    When a mother invests in her own confidence, security and self-love, she is in a position to “gift” these same emotions to her children.  Listen to the beautiful episode where I interview a client and friend of mine who has done some amazing work over the past year.  Alisha shares her insecurities before coaching, specifically her worry about telling her youngest daughter she is adopted.  Listen to hear the beautiful story of what Alisha learned and the impact her own growth has had on her family.

    Ep. 134 When Our Children Leave "The Path"

    Heidi shares a story about a trip she took a few years ago, where her GPS took her off the “direct path” and a beautiful trip that unfolded.  Heidi shares many lessons from this trip about the options for worry, stress or calm and relaxation as our GPS (or the GPS of our teens) takes them on a path different from others.  Learn helpful ways to support (and not disconnect from) friends on their own paths.

    Ep. 133 Envy and Jealousy

    Ep. 133 Envy and Jealousy

    Envy and jealousy are emotions that, if they drive our lives, create disconnection with others and block gratitude and love.  The more we like ourselves, the more we can manage our jealousy and love others.  Listen as Heidi gives examples of how we act when jealous (critical, shaming, talking about others behind their back, judging) including specific things we say.  Learn two tricks - one internal and one external - to turn jealousy into gratitude and confidence.

    Ep. 132 Putting People on Pedestals

    Ep. 132 Putting People on Pedestals

    We mentally put people on pedestals when we elevate everything about them to be amazing, perfect, the greatest of all time, etc.  This isn’t just admiring and respecting these people - this is expecting them to be perfect in all ways because they do excel in some ways.  When we do this, we create disconnection with these people we revere and we’re set up to always be disappointed - because no one is perfect.  Listen as Heidi explains why elevating people to mental pedestals is so damaging to relationships and how to equalize these relationships.  Because we all crave connection - and connection doesn’t take place on pedestals.

My favorite go to podcast for tough situations life through a out at you

Amazing person who has the ability to read tough situations and break them down to help a parent/partner/sibling understand the root of issues. Relatable contact to everyday life even if you don’t have teenagers yet. It helps those that don’t have teenagers prepare for the transition into being a young adult.
