    507 || let them struggle

    trying to control and manage someone else's journey + struggle may feel like a way to show love, but it's really a way to take a piece of their experience away from them. struggle = potential to learn and grow. and unfortunately we can't grow without it.

    Don't be afraid to take a step back every once in a while to see if the relationship dynamics + roles you're playing are aligned with who you'd like to be and where you'd like to go.

    505 || the skill of overthinking

    we hate overthinkin' until it pays off. make em pay off by learning to hone your bad habits (in order to properly serve you instead of bogging ya down) because you're valid for being afraid - fear is a signal shit needs to change - but don't get caught up in the emotional side of it, insteaed start making the changes it's gonna take to make a difference.

    504 || the subtle art of not giving a f**k taught me || part two

    PART TWO - please listen to yesterday's episode before beginning this one.
    You are responsible for everything that has happened to you in you’re life. You get robbed? Whether you hand your purse over, or run, or choose to do nothing. You are responsible for it. You may not be to blame for the robbery but you are burdened with the responsibilities of the repurcussions. That’s just what life is. It is a series of responsibilities thrust upon our shoulders. How we react and adapt and grow is the only thing we should worry about.The person you marry is the person you will have to argue with. Problems are inevitable. You can control who you choose to face them with.There’s a power in just starting. You want to live a better life? Start reading self help books for 10 minutes a day. Commit yourself to give a f**k about the things that can support the life you want to create.

    503 || the subtle art of not giving a f**k taught me || part one

    503 || the subtle art of not giving a f**k taught me || part one

    My lessons from reading Mark Manson's Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k:

    Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.It’s not about not giving a f**k, it’s about changing your perspective to only give a f**k about the things that really matter, instead of all the other b******t.We all have problems. It’s a human condition. It’s just about creating better problems.Happiness is not an ending, it’s merely a side-effect of solving good problems. (Thus, problems are actually critical to us being happy.) It becomes about finding problems you enjoy solving.Being the best at something is an outlier and a nearly impossible thing to strive for. Embrace mediocrity.The more you fail at something, the more successful you become in that thing. Embrace failure.You are always going to be wrong. That’s what growth is. Real success is found in becoming a little less wrong every day.Every problem in history has been had before and will be had again. Maybe not the specific circumstances, but the particular feelings you are feeling has been felt before. You are not special. This should be comforting! It means you’re never alone and historically people know how to rock this problem! It also means you can always seek out some help.

    “When we’re not hungry for justice it’s usually because we’re too full with privilege.”- Carlos A. Rodriguez
    I updated with the correct audio - apologies!

One of the Best Podcasts

This podcast helps me get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes you just need some real talk first thing in the morning. I actually look forward to listening each morning (and there’s not a lot to look forward to in the morning). It’s just that good! I can’t believe it’s free.

Too much ad content

3 1/2 minutes of ads before a six minute podcast is not appropriate. I understand you need advertising revenue, but when over 30% of the broadcast is ads, that’s too much.

I wanted to love this.

I need a podcast like this in my life. The concept of it is excellent. If ONLY this pod weren’t overtly political, I might have followed and become a diehard fan. Funny how the people most vocal about diversity seem to hate diversity of opinions. Unfortunate.
