BONUS - Sixteen Hopes and Wishes for My 16-Year Old

BONUS - Sixteen Hopes and Wishes for My 16-Year Old

June 6, 2019

After I finished recording Episode 21 (Haven't listened to it? Click here), I kept going. I decided I wanted to also share sixteen hopes and wishes and ideas that I wanted to encourage my new 16-year-old with as he enters this new year of his life.

As a bonus episode for you this week, I'm going to share that with all of you - they're the hopes I have for my son, for your children, for you. I hope these ideas give you a little something that helps make the load lighter or gives you a little inspiration and encouragement as you go through your week.

I'm so grateful for you!

020 - Body as Friend with Ashmae Hoiland

020 - Body as Friend with Ashmae Hoiland

May 28, 2019
"I said to my body softly, ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this."— Nayyirah Waheed
 
Do you struggle to love your physical body, without condition of any kind? As you heal your relationship with your physical self, you may be surprised to find that every aspect of your life also begins to change.
 
In today's episode Natalie and author Ashley Mae Hoiland discuss:
  • the notion of "body as friend"
  • how our lives can change "in the flick of an instant," including our experience with our physical self
  • Ashley's recent MS diagnosis (following what she thought was a simple visit to the optometrist), and how that diagnosis has served to magnify her deep love for her body
  • how what we say and do, every day, is writing the script for our children (and for anyone within the reach and impact of our influence) as it relates to the relationship they build with their own bodies
  • the fact that so many of us have carried a flawed paradigm about what's "normal," "perfect," "desirable"—a paradigm that is not our own, but that was handed to us by a distorted and damaging societal agenda/"norm"—and how it's time to set that sh*t down and step bravely into love and truth
This discussion is a tiny drop in the bucket of a much larger conversation (and REVOLUTION). The experience of navigating the journey to genuine body love is broad and multidimensional, and one woman's experience may vary greatly from the next but there is a common thread that has emerged. Through each story, we see further evidence that as a woman learns to truly love her body, her entire life begins to shift in remarkably beautiful and powerful ways!

019 - Finding Mindful Moments

019 - Finding Mindful Moments

May 21, 2019

It feels like everyone is talking about what it is and how to do it, and you may be wondering –

What is it, REALLY?

And how do I practice mindfulness in a space full of chaos?

On today’s episode, my sweet friend Macy Robison is asking me a whole bunch of questions that you were kind enough to submit via my Instagram account. We’re talking about what mindfulness is, how to practice it in your every day and why you should, and I’m also sharing some practical ways you can incorporate some of these tips.

After you listen and start to try some of these practices, share what you’re doing on social using the hashtag #showuponpurpose so we can find you and cheer you on, and make you eligible for the mindfulness happy mail package I’m giving away.

Quote:

“What matters is finding these mindful moments in the in between. In the space between stimulus and response, making that choice to be present.”

017 - LIKE ME with Tricia Paoluccio

017 - LIKE ME with Tricia Paoluccio

April 30, 2019
We live in a world where the weird, the ridiculous and the outright inconceivable are actually happening every single day. It’s consistently harder to determine what is real and what isn’t especially when it comes to social media. How should we view our role as users & influencers? And how can we use humor to learn to laugh at ourselves and the roles we play?
 
In this episode, Natalie interviews actor Tricia Paoluccio. Tricia has guest starred on programs such as Chicago Med, Homeland and Kevin Can Wait. She’s held multiple roles in New York theater over the years, both on Broadway and off and is a co-creator of the new series, “Mommy Blogger.”

When it comes to engaging life we can often be confused about how to engage it. When do we listen? When do we speak? When do we assert ourselves and when do we support others? 

 
These questions and others are articulated as Natalie interviews writer and speaker Meg Conley. Meg helps us understand when and how to use our specific gifts to be able to show up powerfully and graciously in the world to elicit the most amount of change in ourselves and the world around us.
