    207 | Friendship Goals: Reloaded (Part Three): Phases of Friendship

    As we grow older, we evolve as people. We change, our environments change and so do our friendships. Have you ever considered how the process of making friends has changed as you grew up? What about the quality of your friends as opposed to the quantity? Consider the friendships you've had throughout the years and reflect upon your current friendships as we discuss the phases of friendship and what to expect from friendships in each phase of life.

    204 | Thriving over Surviving (Part Six): Miss Moving On

    This week, we're talking about letting go and moving on. We've been in situations that were easy to let go of. We've also been in situations for longer than we should have been because we were scared to leave and look for an alternative. Moving on is easier said than done, homegirls. In this episode, we talk about our personal experiences with letting go, moving forward and growing out of what once was.
    Although this series is coming to an end, the work that we have to do to thrive continues. We hope you gained as much from this series as we did!

    Last week, we talked about how tired we are of choosing. If you've never heard of decision fatigue, tune in and find out what it is: https://stream.redcircle.com/episodes/0bdf46d1-8eb9-44e8-81b5-6681a1491af7/stream.mp3

It’s Like Listening to Myself

Sometimes I know what’s right but my inner voice gets drowned out by all of the chaos around me. BGB is my go to when I need to feel centered and grounded. I get nurturing but honest advice I can’t get anywhere else. After listening to your show I always find myself again. Thank y’all!!! Much love!!! 💖

My Favorite Homegirls!

I stumbled across this podcast a couple weeks ago and I am so glad that I did! We get comedy and advice all in one and as a whole it is very much giving! And it’s also good to know we’re sorority sisters! 😉
