23 - WEEKEND NUGGET - What's working and what's not working.
In this episode I talk about something personal and what it means. I read you something I wrote and then reflect on how that makes me feel. I shed a layer of thoughts that I believe makes my situation transparent. As I listened to it prior to posting, I was thinking if I should release it, then moments later chose to do it. I chose to do it because being transparent is important to me. It's the line between being vulnerable or being boxed.
When I set out to do this and become a voice for this process, I invited people to be courageous, to be vulnerable, because it makes a difference. Each time I face a fear or am stifled by a limitation and then act on it, I am reminded that my fears, if left to drive me, would always send me in the wrong direction. I am still human and I more often than not am stifled, but not today, not today SATAN.
I cannot express to you how important it has been for me to speak out and up about what I see, what I observe, and what I find to be useful for those of us going through or healing from a divorce. Speaking has been my ultimate access to releasing the past and creating a future.
I invite you to consider that speaking up and out will do something for you. BE Courageous, BE Vulnerable. IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Sadie Marie - Ep. 26.6 - The best investment that you can make into any relationship is the one with yourself
In this last episode with Sadie I find myself talking more, which is rare for me. I normally listen and ask questions that relate with the conversation. Something happened over the course of our conversation where it just felt like we were old buddies shooting the shit together. That is a priceless experience. As an audience you should still expect to be contributed to, especially around journaling, observations, and the importance of investing in yourself.
We started off as strangers, learning and sharing about each other from opposite ends of the mic, and by the end, I felt like I knew her. I hope you are also left with that. I hope that you leave a little wiser and more prepared than when you first found us.
Sadie Marie - Ep. 26.5 - I enabled men to do s****y things to me
In this episode we look at what could have been done differently through Sadies eyes. What that looks like, and what it looked like for her. For instance, Sadie admits that she would’ve been braver and bolder, and less pleasing. Stating the importance of how ,if she had done that for herself back then, she would have had freedom much sooner. She advocates for others to find a way and do what you want to do. Reinforcing the value of you as a person, and giving you the recipe for how to create self worth in the process. But, most importantly, she shares how to not talk yourself out of your dreams.
22 - WEEKEND NUGGET - I'm So Sorry
In this episode I talk about our default saying of I'm sorry inside my context. What it made me feel, what I did, and what I would do differently knowing what I know today. I experienced an abundance of freedom when I spoke to people during my process when they shared those words with me. 9 out of 10 times whomever spoke with me understood why I wanted to transform that language most of us use as a default. It became yet another opportunity to shift what was not working for me, into what does.
As I recall those moments today, I remember feeling grounded and more rooted each time I engaged in these talks. They allowed me and others the space to look beyond the pain or the loss, and to be responsible for what is available. It was and still is some of my most treasured moments post divorce.
Sadie Marie - Ep. 26.4 - It’s all about me. Happiness is an inside job
In this episode we look at the past and begin to see where it can be altered. Sadie and I just talked about what it looked like to live for someone else, as women have done for hundreds of years. We explore the root of how women were conditioned to take care of everyone else except themselves, and we both say F**K THAT!
It’s 2021 and although it is nice and rewarding to be of service to others, we MUST be first when it comes to our own well being.
21 - WEEKEND NUGGET - 2 years later
