EPISODE 26: FINDING EMPATHY



Maya Angelou once said, “I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.”

Join us this week as we dig deep into empathy.  As always we start with the definition of empathy and why we find it so important.  We look at empathy from both the individual perspective and the greater societal perspective.  It matters in situations both large and small.  Not ones to shy away from a little research we share what we learned about cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, and cognitive empathy.

The difference between sympathy and empathy can be confusing and so we take apart each issue to understand why we need more empathy, not sympathy, in the world.

Lastly, we focus on how to cultivate empathy in our own lives and in our children.  No surprise that the concept of books and reading comes up and is discussed.

Join us this week and share your thoughts on empathy with us!

EPISODE 25: BUILDING COLLECTIVE EMPATHY



Welcome to Season 3!

Join us as we take a deep dive into empathy.  

From the beginning of this podcast we wanted to discuss the need for greater collective empathy.  We asked you all to dig deep into your inner worlds and start to live a more authentic life. All the tools we walked through meditation, grounding, boundary setting, feeling feelings, gives us space and permission to come to the outside world as whole humans, with empathy, compassion, kindness and grace

Maybe you are wondering why we are spending so much time on empathy.  It allows us to build relationships; personal, business, community, etc.  Empathy is an important part of a growth mindset and should be the basis for changing management in organizations. 

Let’s kick off season three together!

EPISODE 24: COURAGEOUS LIVING FOR A LIMITLESS LIFE



Today we recap and review how far we have come.  Season one was a look at all the tools we need for this limitless life.  By the time we reached season two we were ready to dig in the dirt.  

True authentic living takes courageous living.  Being vulnerable is scary and we need to be brave.  Whether it’s feeling our feelings, practicing gratitude, or failing and rising up, it all takes courage.

In this episode we talk about how hard it is to live authentically.  It takes work and it often takes space.  Don’t get discouraged.  There is light and goodness with all of this work.  Reset and keep going. 

Thank you for joining us for another season.  We are proud to share this journey with you. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. If you haven’t already, find that accountability partner.  Or use us!  
  2. Subscribe to our podcast and follow us on social media!
  3. Lastly, plan your summer.  What are you goals?  Where do you want to be come Labor Day weekend?  Are you hoping to set a new habit or add some joy to your life?  Find yourself a therapist or sign up for our Limitless Life Sisterhood.  Now is the time to do it.

EPISODE 23: CONNECTING TO MIND, BODY,AND SPIRIT



“Connection is the experience of oneness. It’s having shared experiences, relatable feelings, or similar ideas. It is the feeling of belonging to something greater than oneself.”

We are back with part two of our conversation on connection. Life, parenthood, schooling, career, marriage, can make it hard to keep the sense of connection between body, mind, and spirit.  Life becomes a series of check marks.  

The loss of connection makes it harder to hear your inner voice, to feel your purpose, to be open to the possibilities of the universe.

We talk about our struggles finding and maintaining connection both with our inner voice and with the outerworld.  

Music, art, shared experiences, and help keep the connection were especially necessary during the pandemic.

Join us as we dive back in and discuss connections.  Head over to our socials to tell us how you maintain connect. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

    1. Grab your journal!
    2. Make a list of 3 ways you like to connect: meditation, grounding, prayer, talks with friends
    3. Calendar time every week for the next month to incorporate connection for yourself
  • Connect with your accountability partner and let them know your plan – hold each other to your plans to connect each week

EPISODE 22: OUR NEED FOR CONNECTION



“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” -John Muir

This week we kick off part one of our two part conversation on connection. Our connection to mind, body and spirit guides us.  As humans we need to feel a sense of connection to something, whether it is a larger universe, God, the Earth, other people or something unique. This need relates to belonging, soul, spirit, self worth, doubt, fear, love, kindness. We find connection in grounding, prayer, meditation, group activities, friendship, and relationships.

We also take a look at how the pandemic created space to stop and recognize our need for true connection, rather than the incidental connections in the normal world.  The pandemic created a space for many to stop and turn inward.  

Rielly and Tovah look at how they also looked outward for the connection. This worldwide pandemic brought out a sense of community and empathy and a sense of oneness. 

Join us for this part one and connect with us with your thoughts on how you forge a true connection with yourself and the world.

EPISODE 21: AUTHENTICITY, CONNECTING YOUR INNER AND OUTER WORLD



In this week’s episode we are talking about authenticity and living an authentic life. When we live an authentic life our actions and words, and our beliefs and values act in alignment. In order to achieve this kind of alignment we have to do the hard work of understanding ourselves first.

When we are able to tune in to our inner voice, understand our purpose, hear our deeper selves then we can connect our inner world with our outer expression of self. That is how we live an authentic life. 

So often as children we are trained to adapt our personality to fit in with the people around us and to be more likeable. We change to fit social norms and expectations. We change to meet the needs of our loved ones. Somewhere along the way we lose sight of who we are or who we are meant to be. Bringing that person to the surface allows us to live a happier, more limitless life. 

Authenticity allows us to feel comfortable in our own bodies, confident in our beliefs and decisions, and ready to walk through life in our purpose. We are all able to accomplish this by raising our awareness and listening to what we truly need. 

Today we will talk all about methods and means to overcome the urge to adapt our personalities to fit in and live an authentic life. We give tips and tricks, as well as steps to take to help unwind some of the lifetime of conditioning. As always this is a process and it is an ongoing experience. Tune in to hear our discussion on authenticity and how we can connect our inner and outer worlds. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Take a moment to do a mental inventory – scan through your body and notice how you feel emotionally & physically.
  2. Grab your journal and think back to the last time you did something that felt like it didn’t align with what you believe or what you want, for whatever reason. It could be in your personal life, or at work. Take some time to describe before, during, and after it happened. Describe it physically and emotionally if you can. 
  3. Set aside your journal for some time and then go back and read through what you wrote. Take some time to consider what your authentic self wanted versus what your adaptive self did. Consider an alternative solution. Journal out what that would look and feel like. 
  4. Reach out to your accountability partner and talk it through.

EPISODE 20: LETTING GO SO WE CAN LIVE



EPISODE 20: LETTING GO SO WE CAN LIVE

“To let go does not mean to get rid of. To let go means to let be. When we let be with compassion, things come and go on their own.” –Jack Kornfield

On today’s episode we talk about letting go and surrendering.  What do we need to let go?  Outcomes? Control?  Other People?  

We try to control things because of what we think will happen if we don’t. In other words, control is rooted in fear.

We’ve talked in the past about our perfection and our need to listen to our inner voice.  What does that mean?  It means we need to let go and surrender. Holding on to pain/control doesn’t fix anything. Replaying the past over and over again doesn’t change it, and wishing things were different doesn’t make it so.

The key to success is in letting go, releasing our grip, and surrendering our need to figure everything out ourselves.  This is how we find our way to authenticity.  

We talk about what we have had to do to work towards letting go.  As with most things it’s an ongoing process.  Listen in to hear our conversation on surrendering and where we find peace with the Universe.

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Take a deep breath.  Thinking about what you may be holding onto.  Is it control? Is there a past relationship?  Do some deep listening. 
  2. Then imagine what it would be like if you let go of what you are holding onto.  Journal about what they would feel like.  
  3. Talk to your accountability partner about letting go and surrendering.  What/who do you surrender to?

EPISODE 19: FAILING TOWARDS HAPPINESS



This week we talk all about failure and how it’s not such a bad thing. 

It’s true that you risk failure if you try something bold because you might miss it. But you also risk failure if you stand still and don’t try anything new..  

Embrace adversity and make failure a regular part of your life. If you’re not failing, you’re probably not really moving forward.

The less you venture out, the greater your risk of failure. Ironically the more you risk failure — and actually fail — the greater your chances of success.

If you are succeeding in everything you do, then you’re probably not pushing yourself hard enough. And that means you’re not taking enough risks. You risk because you have something of value you want to achieve.

 You are not a failure.  You failed.

If any of these statements make you feel uncomfortable, time for you to join us on this week’s episode. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Get out that journal. Think about the last time you failed. Did you stop trying because you failed, or did you fail because you stopped trying?
  2. Try something new.  Something that you will probably not be great at it and let it be a challenge.  How did it make you feel?
  3. Share with your accountability partner about your experience.

We are very excited to share with you news of our new undertaking.  We have been putting our hearts and days into this effort because when we decided to launch this course we set out with the intention of writing a program that speaks to the journey we each have been on as individuals and as partners.

The Limitless Life Sisterhood is a loving and supportive place where we come together to build community around the premise that you, as you are, are deserving of the life you choose for yourself. Whatever that vision becomes. Over the ten weeks we are together we plant the seeds and feed the ideas in you that give you the space to design a life that sings to your unique soul.

Over the ten weeks we spend together in community, we provide everything you need to walk through the process feeling confident, excited, supported, maybe just a little bit uncomfortable and scared (that’s where the best things happen!), and most of all surrounded by other women who are on the journey along with you.

Are you ready to invest in your future?

Registration opens TODAY, May 17, 2021

18: THE CURSE OF PERFECTIONISM



Today we dive into a topic that is near and dear to both our hearts.  We have both dealt with and continue to deal with perfectionism in our lives and like to think of ourselves as recovering perfectionists.   

Perfectionism is not is not striving for excellence. Perfectionism is not self-improvement. 

Despite that we see the desire to be perfect can often overtake other goals.

Tune in today to hear how we talk about our own experiences with perfectionism, both how we deal with those feelings and where they come from.  The steps we take as we practice parenting perfectionists.  How finding and listening to our authentic self can help deal with our perfectionism? All this and more on today’s show.

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Look back and think about the most recent time you may have set unrealistic goals for yourself. Was it a small expectation you set for a day or was it a larger goal?
  2. Journal how you did.  What was your motivation? How did you deal with that then?  
  3. Talk to your accountability partner.
