Your Kick Ass Life Podcast

Hey ass kickers! Continuing from last week I’ve written 44 Things I’ve Learned in 44 Years and am breaking it up into 3 parts! Part 1 was last week and today is Part 2!

In Part 3 which will air on May 1st, you’ll get the list in its entirety.

And if you haven’t heard, last week was MY BIRTHDAY! 🎉🎉🎉Not only that, but coming up on May 1st, Your Kick-Ass Life Podcast is turning SIX YEARS OLD! To celebrate BOTH birthdays, we’re giving away some prizes. A coaching session with me, gift cards, books, and more! Click HERE to see the prizes and enter to win.

Here’s part 2, and if you missed it, please listen to part 1.

  1. All wisdom is created from healed pain
  2. Trying to control everything is my one-way ticket on the crazy train. Sometimes I forget this and get on board.
  3. The comparison trap is basically made-up stories of what I think someone else’s life is like
  4. We’re all scared. We all have fear. The people that say they are fearless are just pretending.
  5. None of us get out of this alive. And in the end, I want to be proud how I lived it.
  6. At your funeral, no one will talk about your failures. So, keep failing until you get it right.
  7. Uncomfortable conversations are always hard. However, that elephant in the room isn’t going anywhere (and takes up a lot of space)—so you might as well call it out.
  8. Most people really are too busy thinking about themselves to be obsessing about you like you think they are.
  9. That person that treats you like shit is a giant invitation to not be around that person, ever.
  10. If you spend time nosing in other people’s business, there’s probably something important in your life you’re purposely avoiding dealing with.
  11. Having an open mind can many times blow your mind.
  12. None of us are broken or need fixing. Improvement, yes.
  13. Whatever you think you are, will be your truth. And you are completely in charge of that, babe.
  14. The moment in an argument that you realize you’re either being unreasonable, that the other person has a point, or that you’re just wrong, is the exact moment it’s time to admit it and apologize.

This is just the beginning! Stay tuned for next week when you’ll hear Part 3 which is the podcast’s birthday! 🎊🎊🎊

Hey ass kickers! Guess what? It’s MY BIRTHDAY! 🎉🎉🎉 In celebration, you’re getting the podcast episode a couple days early AND we’re doing a GIVEAWAY!

Not only is it my birthday today, but coming up on May 1st, Your Kick-Ass Life Podcast is turning SIX YEARS OLD! To celebrate BOTH birthdays, we’re giving away some prizes. A coaching session with me, gift cards, books, and more! Click HERE to see the prizes and enter to win.

I’ve written 44 Things I’ve Learned in 44 Years and will be breaking it up into 3 parts, because obviously I want to talk to about all the 44 things! In Part 3 which will air on May 1st, you’ll get the list in its entirety.

  1. Cleaning up my own messes is the best way to sleep at night. This means apologizing when I’ve been an asshole and just generally doing my best to fix things I’ve made a mess of.
  2. Taking radical responsibility for my life is the only option.  No one else is responsible for my happiness. No one.
  3. My children don’t define me. I used to think becoming a mother would be my ultimate life purpose. It isn’t. I used to have a lot of guilt and shame about that. But, I don’t anymore.
  4. No relationship will complete me. Not a single one.
  5. “Taking the edge off” really needed to be examined. For me, I was taking off all the edges. And sometimes edges just need to be dealt with.
  6. Many times exercise really is the best medicine.
  7. The voice in my head that tells me I’m not enough is a liar.
  8. Progress, not perfection.
  9. If I listen, my body is usually trying to tell me something.
  10. I only apologize when I really, truly can stand behind it.
  11. There will always be people that don’t like me and it’s not my job to change their minds. (I admit this one is still tough. It’s a one-day-at-a-time lesson.)
  12. My parents did the best they could, with what they had at that time.  And as parents, that’s all we can do.
  13. Forgiveness is more about me, and not them.
  14. Time really doesn’t heal all wounds—I’m in charge of that. Time helps, but being proactive is the catalyst.

This is just the beginning! Stay tuned for next week when you’ll hear Part 2, and then on May 1st (the podcasts birthday!) you’ll get part 3!

Well, hello there, ass kickers! I’m ESPECIALLY excited about today’s episode because it’s an episode that truly came from the fire in my heart. After a client session, I sat down, turned on the mic, and birthed a talk I think you’ll love. Special thanks to Kelly, who was open enough for me to use her session topic for this episode.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Kelly’s struggle with building self-trust and putting yourself out there
  • Why there is no step-by-step process for building self-trust - whomp, whomp! But there is a way to gain self-trust (and its sister, self-confidence)
  • What the ONE JOB is of your inner-critic
  • Listening to your intuition vs. your inner-critic and stepping out of your comfort zone
  • The importance of pursuing what makes you happy even if it seems impractical

And if you loved this episode, you may want to check out working with me 1:1. There are three ways to do so:

  1. My longer, deeper work that focuses on curriculum stemmed from all of my training, including The Daring Way™ (methodology from Brené Brown’s research) click HERE.
  2. A shorter package that packs a punch-- these sessions are all open. In other words, no curriculum. YOU pick your primary focus and we dive in). Click HERE for that.
  3. Last, you can book a VIP Day, where I can come to you, or we can meet at an agreed upon destination. Click HERE to hang out with me during a VIP Day.

You might be going through a really tough season in your life. You might be in that near desperate or full-on desperate place of wanting your situation to change.

Maybe you’re going through a really hard break up. Or you hate your job. Or someone at work is a nightmare. Or your partner’s ex is making life hell for you.

Many times, there’s no ANSWER or SOLUTION that will change how you feel or the situation you are in. You may know the tools, you may have the support, maybe you’ve done therapy and your year has just SUCKED. It’s continuing to suck and it feels like there’s no end in sight.

The answer, the solution is that you have to just persevere.

I have so much more to say on this, so if this is you or you know someone who is in this place (or you suspect you might be in this spot one day), this is for you.

Also, I have two spots for 1:1 coaching right now, if you want to read about my longer package, you can click here, or a VIP Day is here.
