Think you need to find the One Perfect Idea to act on? Or are you drowning in inspiration and have more ideas than you know what to do with? Either way, I've got you covered. 

This week, I'm taking you behind the scenes of one of my own recent "I can't do this hard, scary thing!" freak-outs and sharing why ideas don't matter as much as we think they do. 

Enjoy and then: GET TO WORK!!

I am thrilled to be kicking Season 5 (!!) off with a return appearance from my friend Camille T. Dungy

In this episode, Camille and I take a real-talk look at what happens behind the scenes of the life of a successful poet, author, speaker, and teacher and how she maintains success and keeps her creative train on the tracks. 

We also talk about self-care, how to find/ask for/get help, the difference between doing and promoting the work, and how to navigate the tension between wanting success yesterday and finding the patience to let your ideas simmer. 

I loved this conversation and suspect you will too...

Have you ever found yourself saying something out loud that is self-deprecating and not actually true? If so, this episode is for you.

This week, I'm diving into three specific stories I've told throughout my life (one very recently!) and looking at what impact telling them has had on what I believe about myself. The short version is that the things we say out loud tend to become true. The other spoiler is that we can shift this ourselves. 

If you're ready to stand in your own power and own the good work that you do in this world (or that you're ready to do), have a listen. You are not alone. And you are doing great.

Ep. 203: On Becoming a Morning Person, aka How to Change a Habit (and Change your Life)

All episodes

Can you slowly and gradually shift a habit or do you have to go all in? Is it possible to actually change something about yourself that you've believed to be true your whole life? How do you know when a change is necessary or when it's antithesis to the person you really are? And, then, if you are ready to try out the change, where do you even start?

These are just a few of the questions that come up around habit change and this week, I'm diving into my own shift in my habit around waking up in the morning. Yes, hand raisers, you heard that right: I am (on purpose!) waking up every morning at 6 am (begrudgingly) and am working on becoming a morning person. 

Listen in to find out how I'm approaching it, how it's going, and what my journey has to do with those life and creative habits that you're ready to shift. Because you know this is about so much more than what time your alarm goes off in the morning!

Are y'all ready for this one? It's time to pause to honor the first 201 episodes of RYHSY (I still can't believe it!) and this week I'm sharing the 10 things I've learned in my four years (so far!) of podcasting! 

Here's the full list in case you need a cheat sheet:

1. Start where you are.
2. Do the scrappiest version you can to get going.
3. If it works, it's good enough. (For now.)
4. Refine over time - you'll know when it's time to make shifts. 
5. Shout your stuff from the rooftops. (Yes, more than you're comfortable with!)
6. Have high standards and own that. 
7. Don't keep trudging down a self-created path that you don't love. 
8. ...but don't quit too early either!
9. Relationships are EVERYTHING. 
10. Pause to look at where you've been, even if you still want to climb farther!

Thank you to everyone who's been a part of the success of this show (over 1 million downloads!) - here's to the next 4 years!

Let's talk about anxiety and real life and what happens when you make a bold move toward something you really want and it's *still* hard.

This week, I'm taking you through the inner workings of my brain and sharing my recent experience with purchasing a home in Colorado and how that kicked up my anxiety BIGTIME.

My hope in talking about this stuff is that it starts getting normalized and that anyone who can relate knows that they aren't alone. Let's all keep going together, eh?

I was so excited to get to interview Leah Vernon of Beauty and the Muse for this week's episode! 

Leah and I covered SO MUCH in this conversation, including:
+ what graduate school taught her about bouncing back from rejection
+ how to be unapologetically yourself
+ how to find your people and the right kind of support
+ how to develop a writing habit
+ the acceptance of anger
+ how to let go of what other people care and think

Oh, yes. Profound things happen when you let go of the need to keep other people comfortable at the detriment of yourself. Amen and hallelujah! 

Enjoy, enjoy!

Can you use your art as resistance, as a form of activism, or as a catalyst for social change? Yes, you can, and this week, I'm talking with Susan Celia Swan about how to do just that. 

Susan is the Executive Director of V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. We had such an amazing conversation about what creative women can do to activate change in their local communities and on a global scale. 

We also talked about what to do if you want to serve but aren't sure how to get started, the big impact tiny moves can create, and how to deal with the imperfection that can rise up when YOU want to rise up.

This conversation is important and powerful. We've all got big work to do. No pressure, hand raisers! And let's go.
