Attitude of Gratitude!

By MeredithETaylor - May 29 2020
Read more
Alison, My sister introduced me to your podcast after being shook in the best way by your conversation with Lexie Kite. The message on body image resilience made me laugh, cry, and confront ideas that usually scare the crap out of me. Since then, I’ve been coming back for more, listening to new and old episodes. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and inspiring me with your words and laughter. I’m a recent medical school graduate, and will be keeping your podcast close at hand to help me continue to uncover my awesome as a general surgery resident! Lots of love to you and Eric (who has tunes that always fit the mood and leave me feeling light).

Tried it. Didn’t love it.

I’ve tried this podcast several times but I just can’t get behind it. First of all, the advice doesn’t seem unique to this podcast and I end each episode wondering what the heck I even listened to. It’s hard to find a solid takeaway that’s relevant. Secondly, I can’t get past the valleygirl voice and attitude. Thirdly, i do appreciate your motivation behind the podcast.

Rank #4: Ep. 59: Life after the tough stuff (trauma and loss) with Ashley Lemieux of The Shine Project

Podcast cover
Read more
The reality of life is that either you, or someone you know is currently living though a trauma or loss. Whether it’s a phone call that someone you love has cancer, the death of a loved one, a divorce, a betrayal, the loss of a job, a physical injury…the LIST GOES ON…what do you do? What does life look like the week after, six months after, a year after? How do you help someone who is experiencing this, or how do you help yourself?
Ashley Lemieux of The Shine Project opens up and shares her incredible insight and strength after experiencing what she refers to as her ultimate loss. We focus on what the details of her loss and trauma—and specifically her grief and healing process—looked like directly after, eight months after and now a year and half after losing her children in an unexpected and heart-breaking way. Ashley shares an unbelievable wealth of resources, tools, and lessons that’s she has learned through her experience. And shares them in such a profound and beautiful way so that anyone can relate.
This is an incredibly important episode, filled with stories, specific ideas and words that I know will help heal and guide anyone who is suffering right now--or anyone who wants to help others. It is an honor to be able to share Ashley and her beautiful story—and I know you’ll feel empowered, inspired and comforted after listening.

Today I’m sharing with you what might be one of my favorite episodes ever! My new friend and phenomenal poet Darryl Dzpasi is here to share his poem called YOU MATTER. Darryl wrote this poem after learning about the tragic death of George Floyd--he wrote it as a message for himself and the world around him. Darryl beautifully reads his poem (grab your tissues), and then generously talks to me about the experiences of his life that contributed to writing it. I also have Darryl tell me how he got to be so WISE and DEEP! You’ll get actionable takeaways for self-love, compassion, and navigating difficult emotions, as well as deep insight and perspective from Darryl’s unique experiences, which I know is so needed right now. I’m so excited to share this with you!

Ep. 121: Playing the cards you’ve been dealt!

Podcast cover
Read more
Listen. I’m not sugarcoating anything here. I’m mad, I’m sad. I’m NOT HAPPY WITH THESE CARDS I’VE BEEN DEALT, and that so many others are being dealt. But in this episode I’m sharing how I’ve been deciding to play these cards, what that means, and how we can all try to move into some awareness right now! No matter when you listen to this, pandemic or not, it will be relevant to what life can deal us, and what we CAN DO ABOUT IT!

Want to support us?! THANK YOU!

Podcast cover

Watch out! I’m bringing in the big guns when it comes to learning about how we see and treat our bodies! I knew this was SO NEEDED right this minute, and it’s going to be a life-changer for sure! Get ready to let go of shame and have your mind blown! I’ve got one half of the INCREDIBLE PhD touting twin duo that runs the nonprofit Beauty Redefined, Lexie Kite! And Lexie is helping us (and of course I also mean me) work on how to build body image resilience--and learn what that even means! We’ll talk about how your body is an instrument and not an ornament! I argue with her a bit about my own issues, which of course we work through and I cry. And then we examine how we can pass on healthier ideas to future generations! IT’S SO GOOD! I’m so grateful for the work that Beauty Redefined is doing, it is changing my life and I can’t wait for it to change yours too!

We are doing a read along of Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements--and the fourth one is: Do Your Best! But we’re breaking down how there’s no stress or shame required! And how truly doing your best will help you become a master of transformation! We have loved doing the read along with you and know this final installment will be the cherry on top!

Ep. 118: Don’t Make Assumptions (During a pandemic?!): The 4 Agreements Read Along Pt. 3!

Podcast cover
Read more
HOLY CRAP! The fact that THIS agreement popped up at THIS time is just BANANAS! A pandemic could not be a better, more perfect time to work on not making assumptions! We are doing a read along of Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements, and he suggests that making assumptions is one of the main things that causes our sadness and suffering! Eric and I discuss how making assumptions during this time of uncertainty in the world keeps us from connecting and being unified. And I offer you 5 affirmations that I use on the daily to help keep me from jumping to conclusions and making judgements. We love you, we are grateful for this community and we hope that this episode offers you some ideas to help you feel a little more awesome.

Attitude of Gratitude!

By MeredithETaylor - May 29 2020

Alison, My sister introduced me to your podcast after being shook in the best way by your conversation with Lexie Kite. The message on body image resilience made me laugh, cry, and confront ideas that usually scare the crap out of me. Since then, I’ve been coming back for more, listening to new and old episodes. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and inspiring me with your words and laughter. I’m a recent medical school graduate, and will be keeping your podcast close at hand to help me continue to uncover my awesome as a general surgery resident! Lots of love to you and Eric (who has tunes that always fit the mood and leave me feeling light).

Tried it. Didn’t love it.

I’ve tried this podcast several times but I just can’t get behind it. First of all, the advice doesn’t seem unique to this podcast and I end each episode wondering what the heck I even listened to. It’s hard to find a solid takeaway that’s relevant. Secondly, I can’t get past the valleygirl voice and attitude. Thirdly, i do appreciate your motivation behind the podcast.
