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.

Ep. 127: YOU MATTER a poem and WISDOM! from Darryl Dzapasi

Podcast cover
Read more
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. 122: Why capacity isn’t the same as ability (and how to be nicer to yourself) w/ @thebirdspapaya

Podcast cover

It’s easy to think that because we have time or the ability to do something, that the only reason we don’t do it is because we’re lazy and the worst! But what if there’s another factor?! (Hint: there is!) In this episode the wildly popular and amazing speaker and self-love advocate Sarah Landry of @thebirdspapaya and I discuss how capacity isn’t the same as ability! Sarah shares the hard lessons that have helped her learn this important distinction! And gives us all 3 concrete ideas for measuring where your capacity is at RIGHT NOW! Sarah is insightful, hysterical, transparent, and downright DELIGHTFUL! You’re going to LOVE this conversation, and thought nuggets Sarah shares!

Podcast cover
Read more
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!
