    52. Grieving the Lives You Aren't Living

    52. Grieving the Lives You Aren't Living

    Do you have a fantasy of a different life you could or might have lived? Maybe it’s moving to a different city, staying in a marriage, or having children, and those experiences aren’t going to happen. Are you grieving that version of your life?

    Listen to this episode as I'm discussing how we feel and think when we’re fantasizing about the lives that we know we won’t ever have. I offer what it means to grieve at lives not lived, what prevents us from fully acknowledging the grief of the lives we’re not going to live, and how there is truly no perfect life that you’re missing out on.

    51. Radical Acceptance: Growing from Burnout & Shame with Kyira Wackett

    This episode is a deep dive into the spectrum of burnout. We discuss hustle culture, the comparison traps that drive us to believe we aren't doing enough or we aren't good enough... which create internal stories of shame and low self worth.

    Kyira Wackett is a licensed mental health therapist specializing in shame resilience and radical acceptance. The founder of Adversity Rising, Kyira works to empower and equip people with the insight, confidence and skills to write their own stories.

    Her work ranges from 1-on-1 coaching to corporate wellness with a focus on what she calls the “anti-band-aid movement” or resisting the quick fix in favor of meaningful and sustainable change.

    Central to Kyira's work is her acclaimed program, THAT LIFE / AR, a transformative 5-step therapeutic process. Guiding participants through profound introspection and actionable strategies, Kyira equips them with the tools to navigate life's inevitable challenges with grace and resilience.

    48. Boundaries vs. Avoidance

    48. Boundaries vs. Avoidance

    Are you calling it a boundary, but really just avoiding a person or situation?

    This episode describes three ways people often deal with challenging people or situations.


    First- I’ve just decided I don’t want this person in my life. Second, I want this person in my life, I want to be able to interact with this person, but I need boundaries for myself.

    The third is one is to just avoid people/situations because we don’t want to do our own work, and we end up suppressing a lot of emotional turmoil and emotional work that would ultimately benefit us in our lives.


    Join me to hear the differences between boundaries and avoiding, and an exercise you can work through on your own.

    47. Less Stress in the Kitchen with Kathy Davis

    47. Less Stress in the Kitchen with Kathy Davis

    Cooking and eating are daily tasks-- but not always enjoyable for all, and can even be stressful for some (Me!)

    In this episode, we chat about a 4 step meal planning process to be more intentional and have less stress with meal prepping, planning and cooking. We also dive into incorporating more plants into your meals-- even with other picky eaters.


    Kathy Davis is a plant-based lifestyle and mindset coach, a Meal Planning Expert, the CEO of VegInspired, and the author of three cookbooks and a co-author of one personal development book.

    Kathy is on a mission to educate, inspire, and empower others about the power of plant-based eating in living thriving and successful lives. She operates on two primary mottos: 1) Eat More Plants and 2) Intention over Perfection.

    Kathy has been eating and creating vegan meals for more than nine years. Over the past 4 years, she shifted her daily habits to follow a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle. She experienced amazing results: renewed energy, 50-pound weight loss and maintenance, a newfound sense of joy, and a healthier mind and body! One tool that she used consistently to make plant-based eating a sustainable way of living was meal planning. She founded the Meal Plan Accountability Club to help others become efficient and effective meal planners.

    Kathy is dedicated to providing women (and men) with the resources to Eat More Plants. She is eager to guide others on their journey so that they can make a more significant impact in the world.

Extremely relatable

As a recovering people pleaser I can very much relate to several of these topics and stories. This work is SO important. I love Kristen’s analogy of a gate around your yard when thinking about creating boundaries. I’ll be listening more often!

Tara Santiago ,

Great fundamental lessons

A few episodes in and I am really gleaning a lot from this podcast

The disclaimer about the audio was an understatement I really wanted to enjoy this but the audio is terrible.
