    Beyond the Baby Years: Clearing the (Heavy) Clutter with Alissa Henry (EP322)

    Beyond the Baby Years: Clearing the (Heavy) Clutter with Alissa Henry (EP322)

    The set up of today’s conversation is slightly different than previous episodes. Alissa has been a previous guest on the podcast so we just jumped right into our topic: the struggle of infertility and the emotional process of letting go of baby items. In our conversation, Alissa discusses the mindset shift from holding onto hope to embracing gratitude for what she already has. She also emphasizes the importance of not feeling alone in this journey and encourages listeners to consider decluttering as a positive step forward. Many of you have reached out asking how to declutter those items you just can’t let go of - specifically baby items - and my hope is that this conversation provides some answers for you - even if your only takeaway is more confidently knowing that you aren’t alone.

    The Joy of Missing Out with Tanya Dalton (REPLAY)

    The Joy of Missing Out with Tanya Dalton (REPLAY)

    A lot of my current listeners may have missed this previous episode with guest, Tanya Dalton (and even if you did hear the original, it’s a great one to re-listen to as you discover the joy of missing out in your own life!) This episode is full of reminders for how we can gracefully say "no" (and to use it as a full sentence), quick tips to establish more JOMO in our day-to-day and more...
    This week, I speak with author, Tanya Dalton. Tanya Dalton is a productivity expert, writer, speaker and founder of inkWELL Press Productivity Co, a company centered around productivity tools and training. Her first book, The Joy of Missing Out, will release October 1st. In her highly anticipated first book, Dalton inspires women to reject the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more. She shows them how to focus on what's important to them and then helps them develop their own unique productivity systems. Today, we will speak to the themes in her book and discuss why it's so important for each of us to discover JOMO for ourselves!

    "If We Don't Name Limits, We Live Captive to Them" with Sara Hagerty (Bonus Episode)

    "If We Don't Name Limits, We Live Captive to Them" with Sara Hagerty (Bonus Episode)

    For those that are new around here, I release bonus episodes that serve a niche part of my audience, I have listeners of all faith backgrounds that listen to the podcast. This episode is coming from a christian perspective so if that’s something that doesn’t fit what you’re looking for, check out the other episode that dropped this week with Renee Benes or join me back here next Tuesday for a conversation that you don’t want to miss!
    "It might be ugly, but that closer look allows us to recognize and name our challenges, and that is the first step towards freedom."
    Most of us struggle to admit we have limitations, let alone actually rejoicing in them; however, my guest today, author, Sara Hagerty has learned how to better recognize (and accept) her boundaries and limitations. In today's conversation, we explore how idealism, while often celebrated, can impede personal growth, fostering dissatisfaction and burnout. We also discuss how grieving the loss of certain expectations and embracing our limits can ultimately lead to greater contentment and peace.
