Ep. 6 – The Days of the Week LOVE You!

I have a special place in my heart for those “I hate Mondays” people.  I am that person in the office who’s all “HAPPY MONDAY” and painfully cheerful for no reason on a Monday morning.  It’s quite hilarious on my end, but not so much for the people who are annoyed by this behavior.

Sorry, not sorry.

This week on the She Lifts Podcast we are talking about just that, the week.  I had a very interesting conversation with my son regarding the days of the week where he stated,

“The days of the week LOVE you!”

I was so blown away by the myriad of thoughts that rushed through my mind as we were having this conversation, that I had no other choice but to throw them all together into an episode.

Trust me, I am not trying to turn all of you “Non Monday” people into Monday people and definitely not trying to convert all the “Non Morning” people into Morning people because I haven’t even figured out how to make that work for myself, yet.  This episode just offers a different perspective on the days of the week and how they love you and ways in which you can love them back.

Now back to you “Non Morning” folks out there, there is hope!  I also highlighted a book that I recently read by Hal Elrod entitled “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life…(Before 8AM).  This book is chock full of amazing tips, tools and secrets to transforming your life before the sun even comes up!  It is a great and easy read, I would even call it a page turner.

All in all, this week thing is something we will be stuck with for the rest of our lives.  We shouldn’t go to bed on Sunday night dreading waking up on a Monday morning, we should be ON FIRE for the next morning to come and embracing every single moment of each and every day.

Thanks for putting your ears on it!

Love and Light, Fam!

Video – Will Smith on Fear

Will Smith spoke candidly about his experience in skydiving that he shared with his sons.

What struck me most about that interview was how he interpreted fear.  He simply asks, what do you need that fear for?

Sometimes, fear can help us identify when something is not right, or not right for us.  However, most times, fear can really hinder us from reaching out greatness or having a noteworthy life experience.

Why should you let fear stop you?  YOU SHOULDN’T!! Make that decision today to not allow fear to stand in the way of what you truly deserve.

Love and Light, FAM!!

Ep. 5 – Paralyzed by Fear

HAPPY MONDAY FAM!!!

It’s another MOTIVATION MONDAY which’s means it’s time for a WHOLE new episode of the SHE LIFTS PODCAST!!

This week’s episode is one of my favorites. I think I actually say that every week, but I mean it this time!

We are talking about fear this week.  Discussing how it feels to be paralyzed by fear.  I shared a pretty personal story about one of my fears and a time when I was so overcome by that fear that I literally couldn’t move.

I drew the inspiration for this episode not only from that experience, but also from Will Smith.  He had an interview during which he discussed the experience he shared with his sons; skydiving.  He discussed how terrifying it was and how he experienced pure bliss, once he pushed past his fear.

We are all afraid of something whether its something physical, social, emotional or psychosomatic, you’re afraid of it.  What you fail to realize though, is that God puts the best things in life on the other side of fear and your ability to push past that fear will also reward you with some of the best experiences in life.

Do no be afraid to be unafraid!

Head over to SoundCloud or iTunes to check out this week’s episode to find out what I am afraid of!!!

Thanks for putting your ears on it!!!

Love & Light, Fam!!

Happy Father’s Day

There are things that mothers simply cannot teach their sons. There are lessons that little girls learn from their fathers that only sound like parables when told from a mother’s perspective.

The relationship between a child and a father is ridiculously important.

For little girls, it’s their first example of love. For little boys, it’s a guideline for their life of love. Dads set the tone at an early age.

Considering how much of an impact this is, now imagine how painful it can be when that father is absent from the home; absent from the child’s life. It’s crushing. Even though it may not present itself the same in every child, they are directly affected.

Dads, we need you, ALL of you. Not just the time that you can dedicate. Not just the time that you find that’s free, we need your ALL in everything you do with us.

We need your Love. We need your encouragement. We need your support. We need your provision. We need you patience. We need your guidance and advice. We need your strength. We need your vulnerability. We need YOU.

Its okay to take time for yourself. It’s okay conduct a little introspective inventory and figure out areas in which you can improve and be the best Dad to your little onlookers. It’s not easy, we get it.

Dads, we thank you for all you’ve imparted on is throughout the years. We thank you for teaching us, understating us. But most importantly, we thank you for loving us.

Happy Fathers Day from She Lifts Podcast

Enjoy your day!!

Ep. 4 – Just Do It

Its another #motivationmonday and today we are exploring the idea of getting up off your buns and getting into your life.

There are so many steps between “I want” and “I did” and a ton of emotions attached to each step.  But imagine the AWESOME sense of accomplishment that comes along with completing a task or achieving a goal!

Its almost overwhelming, right?

Right.  So check out this weeks episode, available on both SoundCloud and iTunes (links on home page) as we gear up to “Just Do It”.

Love & Light, Fam.

Ep. 3 – What you talkin’ bout Willis?

Fam!!! What…is…UP??  I hope you’ve had a chance to listen to the She Lifts Podcast this week.  If not, there are plenty opportunities, so don’t feel bad.  If you have, THANKS for putting your ears on it!!

This week’s episode explores POSITIVE SELF TALK!! This has been a staple in rebuilding for me.  I set out to change the narrative; change the way I communicated with myself about myself.  However, I learned that I had to first pay attention to what I was actually saying.

I share with you guys some key tools and tips to incorporate positive self talk into your daily life.  I also seek to stress how important it is to be kind to yourself and cultivate the relationship with yourself.

There are also a ton of great examples in this episode and a lot of references coming your way as well!!

Thanks for putting your ears on it!!!
