"There's an equal chance that you will experience positive or negative. With a fifty-fifty shot, stop counting on a negative outcome." Episode 5 It's a new year, and a new you: I bet you're sick and tired of hearing that right about now. If you are, you may be the type of person who tends to gravitate to the grumpier, more cynical side of things. And if that's what you tend to focus on, you totally may be missing out on all the really good stuff that's happening around you and to you!...

"You don't need a calendar to work on self-improvement. Every day is an opportunity to do better and be better." In this week's episode, we talk about New Years Eve, and how to -- well, f*** the resolutions, because we all know you've had them five years in a row! As well as societal norms. How can we improve this year without talking about all the things you're NOT going to do in "the future"? Spoiler: I drop a lot of f-bombs in this one. That should clue you in on how I feel about...

12/25/2018
More
A little change for this week's show. We weren't going to do one this week because blinky-lights... But alas, Christmas is here, and people are freaking the eff out. Including me, just a little bit. So I wanted to get out some quick thoughts in a bonus episode to you before diving head-first into the war zone -- I mean, festivities! No questions today. We'll get back to our normal routine next week. Promise! Sorry about the quality on this one. I recorded it on my iPhone instead of going all...

This week, we're discussing how to survive the holidays -- especially when your holiday turns out differently than the trademark Hallmark card.

2: Forgiveness

12/10/2018
More
"Forgiving someone for their transgressions does not absolve them, it releases you from the hold that the pain has over you." Episode 2 Here is where we talk about forgiveness and apologies. Neither are easy, but neither is carrying around pain and resentment or guilt and shame. Forgive and accept apologies, not for them, but for you. This week's Q&A: we give a bank teller some coping tools to deal with her jerk boss, and we also help a dude see where he could be sabotaging his romantic...

More
"Self love, and saying 'no', isn't selfish... It's self-FUL." Episode 1 In today's discussion regarding balance, we explore how we don't have it, or need more of it, why we need it, and how your life can improve as balance increases. Our lives have categories. Let's balance it. Your priorities aren't what you claim they are. Your priority is where and how you spend the majority of your time. For the Q&A, we get down to the nitty gritty and help a vegan reconnect with her inner...
