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.

If any of you follow me (April) on social media, you'll have seen a maybe-surprising post from me this past Friday.  As Darryl and I have been exploring our values and our faith, we've come to some not-so-culturally-popular understandings of the way we need to continue forward in our lives and with this podcast.

Listen now for our candid and raw conversation about what we've discovered.

54: Codeswitch Real Talk (Part 1 of 2)

October 28, 2019

In this series, we have a heavy conversation around the topic of.... conversations. More specifically,  how individuals in minority races and ethnicities have to use codeswitching in order to fit in with, gain traction with, or simply get treated equally among dominant groups. Darryl shares his stories about how he first learned codeswitching and now, how he has to do it on a daily basis. This episode is part 1 of a 2 part series, and trust me, you don't want to miss either this week's or next week's episode.

53: Get Over The Bull-Shift

October 21, 2019
Some life changes happen quickly and you have to learn to adapt fast in order to survive your new circumstances.  However, most life changes happen over time, in a shifting pattern that is barely recognizable until you are on the other side of the change.  In this episode we talk about how life-shifts occur in work and in your relationships, and how to navigate them so you are stronger on the other side.
