Review of the Week:

Desert-mama “Yesterday I had a Lori-a-thon and probably listened to like 5 podcasts. It was my soul food for the day, I laughed out loud to you and Evans (like I do every time!), I cried with Tracy O’Malley. She is such an amazing woman and her story speaks volumes on so many levels. Whenever I am needing some inspiration or some words of wisdom you are always here. Thank you! I feel like when I’m listening to you and Evans it’s like I’m in the room with two of my besties laughing along with you. I had the pleasure of meeting you last year at the women’s powerhouse event and I’ve been on board ever since. Best podcast ever!

 

Question 1: @heymadelyne: “What’s given you hope in your difficult moments (you know, the ones that feel hopeless)?”

 

Question 2: @meet_thefreemans: “What was your first team member to hire?”

 

Question 3: Alicia Carussi: “How do I turn off the self sabotaging and forgive the procrastination?”

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why it’s so important to validate ourselves first
  • How I searched for outside validation
  • Powerful quotes on validation
  • Where to go when the answer is NO
  • Keeping your energy clean + checking in with yourself
  • Mantras to say that will help

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes

In today’s quickie, I really wanted to talk about validation. I have been thinking SO much about validation and what it means lately, so I knew I had to share. The word validation tends to get a bad reputation because it drives us to gain approval from others– we still have to remember that we need to validate ourselves. Seeking the validation from others and then getting it doesn’t actually make us happy if we don’t love and approve ourselves.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • How we apply our own meaning to things
  • A quote I’ve been loving right now
  • How to view the season you may be in
  • The season I’ve been in

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes

I have this theory that whenever I’m not in the place or headspace I want to be in, I try and find someone else that is in that place. It’s super important to me to find someone to speak that life back into me, and honestly, sometimes it isn’t even about the words– it’s about the vibration. Nothing is out there actually making us feel a certain way, it’s actually us taking it in and applying our own meaning to it. If we could all really look at ourselves and the season that we’re in, it’s important to remember that space is truly just a visitor– some stay longer than others, but they will leave.
