You can have some — you will have some — but if you have too many and you don’t know how to navigate, or compartmentalize, or say, “Hey, cool like we’ll put that on the back burner,” you’re going to have a real problem.” [4:37]

When you are feeling overly emotional and trapped in your thoughts about stress, frustration and doubts you are having about everything happening around you, anything can set you off. Yet, so often you try to hold those emotions in, try to put on your brave and confident face for everyone else and feel like you’re falling apart inside.

“Whether you're getting a high from a happy thing, or a low from something that's made you sad, treat them equally. Allow them to feel those emotions equally, because actually, one is not better than the other.” [6:13]
“Even if you want to cry alone, don't see it as a weakness. See it as something that's making you stronger and happier in some way.” [7:41]
“Any emotions trapped in your body, anything mental trapped in your body is going to physically manifest in some way” [9:22]
“Exactly how I do with exercise now, exactly how I see with working out, exactly how I see journaling, exactly how I see my meditation, I see releasing of emotion being just as important. [...] energy is not meant to be stagnant in your body.” [11:16]
“If you just think of one thing that you're good at, and you realize that one thing actually does make you feel very happy, the rest is just bonuses.” [25:52]
“if your weaknesses are something that you really are fixated on, and that you want to change, and you really feel is preventing you from progressing in some way, take one weakness a week, take one weakness a month, however long it takes you to feel like you're a little bit more in control of it, you're a little bit better at it, then you were.” [28:02]
“Being a trustworthy friend, being someone who trusts in themselves, show up for yourself, show up for that person. That is how a relationship is built, and friendship is built in that way. So why do you think that you can keep going back on your word to yourself and still believe in yourself?” [32:01]
“belief in yourself is what you exude out of yourself, like what people feel the energy that they feel when they're around you. It's everything that you are feeling about yourself within you.” [33:25]

“I had to really come to this space where I realized I don't feel smart, I don't feel worthy, I don't feel valuable. This is my truth.

A Wonderfully Wise & Woke Women’s Podcast for Women & Men as Well!
This podcast is NOT just important for women & girls to listen to and learn from - it is a great podcast for men & boys 16+ as well! There are too many ways for both males and females to learn disinformation that harms us all in adult life. Relationships with each other and with ourselves require honest & open communication 1st and foremost. Anything less caused disengagement, disharmony dis-ease and ultimately complete dis-connection. 🙏🙌👸🏻💞🦋
It is incredibly disappointing to hear that you would promote porn as being a healthy way to engage with your partner. From my professional experience, many marriages , relationships and children’s lives I personally know have been destroyed from pornography use. (and all the women that I work with that have then sex trafficked understand the intimate link) It is extremely addictive, progressive and should not be promoted as healthy. My own daughter who is 14 years old talks several times a week about how many boys her age are addicted to porn. I have found several of your podcast to be helpful but I will no longer share your podcast with anyone because of the way you are addressing this particular topic. Dangerous.
