93 episodes

Start Scared is for the busy Mama who LOVES her babies, but has lost herself in the chaos of everyday Mom life. She is trying to DISCOVER who she is outside of being a Mom even though she may not know exactly what that is yet. Together, we have HONEST and REAL conversations just like girlfriends chatting over a cocktail or a coffee on the back porch. We cut through the BS stories we tell ourselves and find CLARITY to start scared on putting ourselves FIRST, because who we are outside of being a Mama still MATTERS.

    93. [INTERVIEW] Having GRIT & GRATITUDE even through GRIEF with Jerakah Heady

    GIRL! GET READY TO GO TO CHURCH ON A WEDNESDAY!

    Jerakah Heady is a podcaster, author, multi-passionate entrepreneur, speaker and self proclaimed Target Shopping Connoisseur on a mission to help ambitious women make themselves a priority.

    Jerakah is your internet BFF. She keeps it real, raw, honest and graceful.

    We recorded this back in September before many people knew my dad was sick, and it hit so close to home while we were talking about grief and her book that she is currently working on… But as I was listening back to our chat again this week, it was even MORE powerful for me and I found myself feeling so grateful to have had this conversation when we did and being able to listen to it now when I really need it.

    ***But a quick trigger warning… we talk about infertility and infant loss, so if those are triggering topics for you -
    1. I want to grab you and squeeze you and tell you I love you
    and
    2. I give you full permission to protect your peace and not continue with this particular episode and I will see you next week!

    LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.

    92. Sitting in GRATITUDE even in the middle of a HARD season

    92. Sitting in GRATITUDE even in the middle of a HARD season

    I am in the HARDEST season of my life, but I am finding myself stopping and sitting in GRATITUDE.

    I am forever thankful for YOU for allowing me to share this journey.
    I am forever thankful for those who came to celebrate my dad.
    I am forever thankful for the amazing stories shared at his celebration.
    I am forever thankful for my family and friends who have been so strong for us.
    So. Much. Gratitude.

    As we enter Thanksgiving, even if you are in your own hard season, I want YOU to find something to be grateful for... Even if it is as small as the birds chirping. There is ALWAYS something to be grateful for.

    And because you have been here for ALL of my dad's illness, I want you to get to know him better, so THANK YOU for letting me share with you what I shared at his Celebration of Life.

    91. [LIFE UPDATE] You may not know the impact you're making on others...

    91. [LIFE UPDATE] You may not know the impact you're making on others...

    My dad, Geoff Leighton, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in August 2022, and he died peacefully in his sleep on November 6, 2022, with my mom and me by his side... Although we are left to grieve on Earth, I am filled with peace that we will see him again in Heaven.

    Please don't forget that we are raising money for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for earlier detection to save lives! You can shop online at our Bonfire store all month long in November, and all proceeds will be donated directly to PanCAN!

    Head to bonfire.com/store/hope-for-pancreatic-cancer/ to shop many different styles, designs and sizes. THANK YOU for spreading awareness of this horrible disease.

    And also… Especially If you have Pancreatic Cancer in your family, I highly suggest you ask your doctor to do a blood test for CA 19-9, which is an inexpensive test and should be covered by insurance. A high level of CA 19-9 can often be a sign of pancreatic cancer, so then you can follow up with a CT scan.

    90. STOP waiting and start LIVING!

    90. STOP waiting and start LIVING!

    At the time of this recording, my sweet daddy has taken a turn for the worse and instead of bringing you the golden nuggets that I learned from Amber Lilyestrom at the EmpowerHER Live event back in October, I am bringing real and raw and what is on my heart...

    Girl... don't waste the time you have on this Earth...
    Stop waiting and start living.
    Tell the people you love that you love them.
    Do the things that bring you joy.
    Take that trip.
    DON'T WAIT.
    Because you never know when your time will be up...

    Edited to add: I recorded this episode less than 5 hours before my sweet daddy went to be with Jesus. 💜 He died peacefully in his sleep with my mom, me and their two cats by his side on November 6, 2022, less than 3.5 months from onset of symptoms.

    89. Pop those NEGATIVE thoughts into NEUTRAL plus a SPECIAL fundraising event...

    89. Pop those NEGATIVE thoughts into NEUTRAL plus a SPECIAL fundraising event...

    After attending the EmpowerHER Live personal growth conference a couple of weekends ago, I wanted to take the time to share some of my biggest takeaways from each speaker over the next several episodes of Start Scared.

    Today, I am sharing some takeaways from the event host, Kacia Ghetmiri. [@kacia.ghetmiri on Instagram]

    Things we discussed today:
    ~stop dulling your sparkle
    ~gratitude and sadness can co-exist at the same time
    ~stop asking yourself crappy questions
    ~take messy action... it doesn't have to be "perfect"
    ~pop those negative thoughts into neutral

    I also challenged you to share with me, or an accountability partner, what is one negative thought you are going to pop into neutral?

    88. [INTERVIEW] Put yourself FIRST to show up well in your life AND for others with Katrina McMurtry

    GIRL! Buckle on UP! You are NOT going to want to miss this episode!

    Katrina McMurtry is a wife, momma, educator, podcaster, coach & your biggest cheerleader! She wears ALL of the dang hats!
     
    She is teaching you to put yourself first, so you can show up as your best self! It is her dream to make a positive impact in the lives of other women and she wants to help others discover that putting yourself first is the key to showing up as your best self in this world.
     
    Through some tough love, she will challenge you to dig deep and lean into the struggles as you grow and learn to let your light shine... And it starts with GRATITUDE, MOVEMENT and REST!

    We recorded this back in June, BEFORE my dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer... I found myself tearing up as I listened to it again, because it was EXACTLY what I needed to hear in THIS season.

    AND this was her very FIRST podcast interview, so let's show her some MAJOR love!

Jen Larimore-Host, Mom First ,

Pop in those earbuds! This podcast is for you, mamas!

This podcast is jam-packed with vulnerability, authenticity, and incredible tools to build you up. If you are a mom who feels that they have lost themselves a bit, then you have to check out this podcast. Some of my favorites are being your own advocate, if it feels hard it is because it is hard, and do you struggle with knowing who you are. Thanks, Chrysty! You are empowering so many women through the stories (and wisdom) that you share! Jen Larimore—Host of Mom First podcast

Episode 79

Loved this episode of Chrysty sharing a few questions to ask ourselves to reveal more about ourselves. I appreciate her raw vulnerability with sharing about her inner critic and the practical reminders on how not to stay stuck!

Trevor Oldham ,

Awesome!

One of my new fav podcasts!
