Episode 36: Childless or Childfree?

What does being childless mean? What does childfree mean? Does it matter? To some people it does and I share my opinion about that.

Childless or Childfree?

Today’s topic may be a trigger for any of you who might be or have in the past been through the journey to conceive. I will be discussing my journey and my thoughts about the communities that we unintentionally become a part of.

Where I Come From

Today I want to take a step back. I want to talk about where I came from because I know so many of you see where I am today and might be thinking that I have this perfect life or have had it pretty easy, but I haven’t.

I am about to turn 35 in a couple of weeks, and yes, right now in my life, I’d say that I have it pretty fucking good. My life is pretty easy at the moment. But it hasn’t always been.

Episode 29: Where I Come From

We all start somewhere. A lot of quotes you’ll see or direction from coaches tell you not to look back because you aren’t going there. I’m looking back at where I came from because it has determined how I’ve gotten to where I am today. Looking back shows you how far you’ve truly come.

Me Time

I know you’ve heard a lot about me-time in recent years, but I want to talk about it today. I want to talk about it in reference to something I recently realized in my own life: my me time does not simply mean a couple of hours to myself. I need more.

When I was traveling for work, a couple of hours a day was all I needed. Well, that and a weekend day once in a while that had zero plans. But since I hadn’t traveled for work in a year and neither of us were taking our own small trips, I didn’t realize what made those couple of hours be enough.

I know you hear a lot about me time from life coaches and influencers all of the time, but hear me out. I thought I was doing me time right, until I realized that the me time that is typically recommended by others, isn’t all that I needed.

Are You Holding Yourself Back?

Are you holding yourself back? Do you keep yourself where you are because you are afraid of failing, becoming a different person, or growing away from those closest to you? Do you stay comfortable rather than pushing yourself? I have spent most of my life holding myself back or only allowing myself to advance to a level that won’t offend anybody else.

Are you holding yourself back or are you blazing trails? Some of us hold ourselves back because we never thought we could get to where we are or any further. I am one of those people and I am working through this fear…..little by little.

Little by Little

We’ve been talking about going your own way and making the most of yourself, so today I wanted to talk about what it takes to do both. The truth is that no matter how much pressure we put on ourselves or how many times we say “today is the day” or how many new weeks, months, or years we plan to do something new, nothing happens or changes all at once. No matter what we do, that thing, that effort, that goal, they are always, absolutely always, achieved little by little.
