    127: How To Motivate Yourself To Move Forward (When It's Super Tempting Not To)

    127: How To Motivate Yourself To Move Forward (When It's Super Tempting Not To)

    If you're feeling particularly...um...tested lately (by people, by work, by life being life), welcome to the club. Because you, along with pretty much everyone else, are in the middle of a transition. And moving forward might feel so hard — or annoying — that you feel like maybe it's not worth the energy to even try.

    In this solo episode, we're diving into how to move forward when it's really tempting not to (and why those temptations feel so freaking tempting. I hear you!)...and how to use what's commonly seen as a "negative" feeling to your full advantage.

    126: Do You Have "Reopening Anxiety?"

    126: Do You Have "Reopening Anxiety?"

    You're not the same as you were one year ago. And you shouldn’t be. 
    But maybe you're struggling right now as things start to look eerily similar to how they "Once Were," and feeling the pressure of needing to replicate the UN-USEFUL parts of pre-2020 times in order to be successful, loved, or just get through the day (even though you've seen that the Once Were ways weren't working).

    In this episode, I'm sharing my thoughts around what I call "reopening anxiety," and some things you can do this week to calm that part of your mind that feels like all the important lessons you learned over the last year are at the risk of being forgotten.

    125: Finding Your Own Normal with Jessica Murnane

    125: Finding Your Own Normal with Jessica Murnane

    WANTcast listener favorite Jessica Murnane is back this week — and this time, we're talking all about figuring out what "normal" and "best" mean for you...when what you're feeling is anything BUT those things.

    (We're also laughing a lot, because Jessica brings SO much joy to the WANTcast.)

    Her new book, Know Your Endo: An Empowering Guide To Health and Hope with Endometriosis, isn't only for people with endo – but for people who think they could possibly have endo, for people who love people who have/could have endo, or people who are questioning if the “normal” they experience is the same “normal” they hear everyone else talking about. It is a revelation, a revolution, and a treasure trove of both stories and strategies to help you build your confidence AND your toolkit.

    124: My Story

    124: My Story

    After almost six years and 124 episodes, I realized I'd never done what many people do right at the start of their podcasts...shared my story. But as I'm evolving, WANT is evolving, and the world is evolving, maybe now is actually the perfect time for a (re)introduction. If anything, so that maybe you can recognize a little of yourself in these words, and know you're not alone.

    123: On Feeling Seen + Navigating Invisible Illness with Harper Spero

    123: On Feeling Seen + Navigating Invisible Illness with Harper Spero

    When business coach Harper Spero was diagnosed with an extremely rare immunodeficiency disorder known as Job’s syndrome, she was determined to create her own narrative. She believes that battling an invisible illness should not define you. 
     
    Not only has Harper learned to embrace her invisible illness, but she has carved a new path and given hope to many who feel equally veiled. Harper couldn’t find podcasts featuring stories of people similar to her. In 2018, Harper launched the podcast Made Visible to help people with invisible illnesses (and those who care for them) feel more seen and heard. In 2020, she launched the Made Visible Writing Class to help others write and share their stories of invisible illness.

    In this episode we talk about what it's like to live with an invisible illness, and what that means during the times of pandemic. We also talk about access and privilege when it comes to getting help, the countless benefits of learning about stories that look different than your own, how to feel — and make OTHERS feel — seen, and so much more.

    122: How To Focus On Yourself When You're Always Giving To Others (...And Vice Versa)

    122: How To Focus On Yourself When You're Always Giving To Others (...And Vice Versa)

    A healthy human, in relationship with herself OR with others, is meant to have balance when it comes to what and who gets our attention. We're not MEANT to be 100% self-focused or 100% other-focused constantly - we need to be both. 
    In this episode, we're diving into why you need a mix of "self care" and "others care," and what to do to help yourself even the balance when it feels like you've gone too far in one direction or the other.

Full of wisdom

Katie’s ability to articulate her story and share her wisdom in such an inviting and loving way creates a safe space for so many others to process their own story. She’s a force and I’m so deeply thankful that our paths have crossed.
