So grab a cup of coffee and let's share all the feels!
New episodes every TUESDAY!
Emotions, we all have them but society makes us believe that it's a sign of weakness to show them. At work you're expected to never get angry, in a relationship you're expected to act coy, and with friends you're expected to always be happy. This game becomes exhausting and by the end of it you don't even remember what you actually felt in the first place. It takes a great deal of maturity and strength to understand your emotions and fully utilize them to live your truth freely and openly. We talk about how we've learned to embrace our emotions and open up about how we feel when we feel it. And in the process, how you can find your passion and life's purpose!

Having a BFFL is one of the strongest bonds we can have! Someone who you can, without a doubt, count on and vice versa. As we grow through the different stages of our lives, we outgrow many things… can friendships be one of them?
What happens when we start to grow apart from our friends? What if you realize your relationship isn't the same as before? When do you know when to fight for a friendship and when it's time to say goodbye? How do you deal with losing or letting go of a bestie?
When it comes to family, it often feels like you're living amongst strangers rather than you are your own blood. Why don't they understand you and what makes you happy? Why does everything always end up in a fight or huge disappointments? How can we learn to express ourselves honestly without the weight of resentment, bitterness, and anger of past memories getting in the way? We all want to reach that point where we can have that kind of understanding with our parents and genuinely love each other for who we really are, flaws and all. Truth is, they feel the same way.
Listen as we share our own personal journeys with our parents, current struggles, and how we've learned to balance doing what we're passionate about while breaking down the barriers with our family.
Welcome to your 20's! You have now entered the wonderful world of ADULTING! But things aren't what you expected them to be. You're not alone. We all had grand dreams of what would happen and how it would feel like when it did (love, relationships, friendships, career). But what happens when "it" doesn't transpire at all or you didn't end up feeling the way you thought you would when "it" did? Is adulting disappointing after all? Was it all better in our heads and in our fantasies?
On one hand, reality can be very sobering. On the other, it can also unlock life's abundant possibilities which are even better than your fantasies... because it's real! It just won't happen the way you pictured it. But as soon as you let go of that, life truly becomes limitless.
Congrats, you've graduated! Now what? You're lost, confused, and the harder you try the more it feels like you're going absolutely nowhere. It's the pre-quarter life crisis and whether you're either unemployed or trying to figure out if you enjoy the path you've chosen, let's be real, adulting is HARD. We talk about how we found our way through our own paths and all the things we wish we knew back then that would have helped us enjoy the beginning of this beautiful journey of self discovery.
This week, we talk about love, relationships, and friendships and just how toxic they can be. We've had our fair share of letting bad people stay in our lives longer than we should of because of the fear of being alone, settling, convincing ourselves this is as good as it gets, or chasing a fairytale. What are the signs of a toxic relationship? What are some red flags you shouldn't ignore? And how do you break up with someone in a thoughtful and considerate way?
It's never easy to let go of someone you've loved. But you have to ask yourself, are you more afraid giving up on the idea of someone or facing reality. Admitting and facing the truth is the hardest part. However, once you can be honest with yourself then you open up that space for true self love to come into your life.
There comes a point in every people pleaser's life when we stop and wonder to ourselves, am I doing this for me or ... for you? We often find ourselves essentially living someone else's life to make others happy as we become more and more miserable. This week, we chat about what it means to be selfishly selfless. Where is the balance between doing what's expected of you vs. what makes YOU happy? We share how we've learned to say no and take back what's important to us so we're able to live our happiest life now!
We all fantasize about landing our dream job and spend most of our lives working to define who we are, our self worth and value. People chase money, power, and success because they believe their dream jobs will give them all that. But will it actually lead to the one thing we're all ultimately chasing - happiness? This week we share our stories of landing our dream jobs and the realities behind the fantasy. We give our best tips of how to win at work on your own terms and the heads up we wished we had gotten before we had started working. Your sense of self and purpose comes from the moments you step up and stand for your truth. And when you do that, you stand with others by your side, and that is happiness.
Just remember, even dreams are perfectly imperfect.
Have you ever thought to yourself, why do I always do that? Life is so unfair. I feel stuck! Everyone seems to have it all figured out except me.
Well, we've definitely been there too. This week, we share how we break free from our perceived limitations and insecurities that hold us back from reaching our fullest potential. We unlock our past and delve into the significant moments that have shaped us into who we are and make us realize why we do the things we do. Spoiler alert: You're not who you think you are.
Why are we so mean to each other? From being immature kids to now petty adults, our need to gossip and tear each other down has gotten worse. We want to dig deeper into the reasons why see each other as competition instead of a potential real friend. When did we stop empowering each other and start being so catty? How do we get to a place where we can genuinely be happy for each others' success and not feel that someone else's shine takes away from your own? We take down the myth of the glory of being Queen Bee and why true female friendships are the answers to your success.
Welcome to the first episode of PERFECTLY IMPERFECT! We wanted to jump right in and talk about one of the biggest struggles we have and the inspiration behind our podcast name: how to love yourself...flaws and all!
We grow up constantly being compared to others and defining our worth based on other peoples’ standards. We become unhappy and our own worst critic because we try to chase this fictitious goal of being perfect. Join in as we share how we've come to love who we are.
