Unpolished 23: The Power of Surrender

This episode begins with a conversation on the need to surrender and how it can actually be a good way to pause and enjoy what is right in front of us. We talk about how to approach this from a place of empowerment and remind each other that we can even be frustrated about things we are grateful for. Changing our perspectives is one of the most powerful things we can do, but changing how our brains automatically respond to things is a hard (but worthy) task to take on. We end the conversation with a discussion on the culture of busyness we find ourselves in and talk about how we don’t have to wait to have something in our lives that will make us happy but actually enjoy this moment.

We challenge each other to be open to possibility instead of finding reasons to say we can’t do things. So join us in our challenge…what would happen if you focused on saying “yes, AND” instead of “yes, BUT” to things that appear in your life?

Unpolished 08.5: Right Now Is The Destination

Progress isn’t usually a straight line – sometimes there are loops and circles, but it’s all still movement. If you drew a bunch of loops on a piece of paper, the line is still moving forward even though there’s a portion of that loop that’s moving backward. This mini-episode was a parting thoughts conversation we had after wrapping up a previous podcast recording.

We talk about the importance of knowing our triggers so that we can set the right boundaries for ourselves. We also discuss how everything works out exactly as it needs to, especially when we subscribe to the idea that the universe is always conspiring in our favor. It’s not about reaching the destination we’re heading towards—it’s about the gifts that can be found right now. In fact, right now IS the destination. We don’t need to figure it all out, we simply need to go with it and learn along the way.
