Unpolished 42: We Get to Choose

There is duality present within every situation—joy and pain, dark and light—and we often forget that we have the power to choose what we see.

Our thoughts create our feelings, not the other way around. When we can learn to focus and choose how we are thinking about things and how we are seeing the world, our feelings then change.

We also talk about the concept of seasons in our lives, how comparison is our default setting, and the need to give ourselves permission to feel the feelings. Happiness is more complicated than a choice. It’s the decision to be happy in the series of tiny choices we make every day.

We’d love to hear from you—how are you choosing happiness today?

Unpolished 04: Being Okay With Being Real

What started as a conversation around professional family photographs turned into a conversation around vulnerability, authenticity and so much more. In this episode, we discuss the downfall of the word should, the unnecessary pressure we put on ourselves by trying to compete with the perfect social media photo, and the value that each and every one of us provides by putting our own unique filter on the different ideas and experiences we each come across. We all need to find our own way of being comfortable with being exactly who we are.

Fun fact: The photo of Sarah in the sidebar is from the photoshoot we spoke about.

Unpolished 03: The Comparison Trap

Why do we get so triggered by people posting that they found the miracle solution? Or the perfect family photo? Why do we all get stuck in the trap of trying to make it sound like we’re all further along and experienced than we actually are? What would happen if we just spoke from the place of our raw, real, authentic selves? And what would happen if we gave ourselves permission to change the rules in our lives at any point in time? In this episode, we dive into these questions and more!

In the episode, Sarah mentions that we are each a unique piece of a much larger puzzle. Here is a beautiful Poem by Tara Mohr around that same idea.
