63: Let It Go (Letting The Past Go)

December 30, 2019
As the new year- the new DECADE- draws closer to us, we see all of you making those New Year Resolutions! 

Not to sound discouraging, but did you know that the failure rate of New Year Resolutions is around 80%?!  One of the reasons for so many broken resolutions may be that you are holding on to past hurts, past failures, past negative experiences and not letting them go so that you can GROW!  In this episode, we talk about how to move forward by letting go of your past.

58: An Attitude Of Gratitude

58: An Attitude Of Gratitude

November 25, 2019
Adopting an "attitude of gratitude" has literally turned my (April's) life around.  I went through a terrible, awful, no good, very bad work situation (shoutout to one of my fav childhood books); my kids were whiny-er than ever; I felt like I could never get the house clean; I never had time to cook; and the piles of laundry were insurmountable mountains of folding I could never defeat. 

However, what I didn't realize for a long time is that all the toxicity that came from the above things was actually toxicity coming from MYSELF.  I was the toxic one. And so, gratitude was one of my last options to change my situation.  And it worked! In this episode we talk about the little ways you can show gratitude and begin to turn your life around.
