It’s not them, it’s you

Les Talk About It Episode: 3 of 12 of the Relationship Season

Join Tamara and Sheena as they talk about when relationships fail it’s not them, it’s you - well, sort of. What we mean is that going into a relationship as a whole person is the best way to have a happy one.

In this episode:

  • What it means to actually be a ‘whole person’
  • Why it’s important to be a ‘whole person’ before getting into a relationship
  • How do you know if you are a whole person
  • How you can be whole and still be figuring yourself out
  • How to become a whole person
  • The four questions you can ask yourself to help you gain self awareness
  • What you can physically do right now to become happier with yourself
  • Why appreciation is vital

 

Les Talk About It Series: Relationships

Relationships are important for humans. We need them to survive, never mind thrive. In this series we delve into relationships and break down some statistics and realities because, let’s face it, most us just muddle through and don’t necessarily have the skillset to rally make a relationship work.

When life gives you lemons, drink limoncello.  

Taryn's trip of a lifetime is finally happening. She's saved money, researched, planned, and created an itinerary that will allow her to travel Italy...and finally tell her best friend that she's in love with her. But those plans are ruined when she wakes up alone, her crush gone. Her plans did not include being alone and stranded in Milan.  

Now Taryn's dream vacation is a nightmare.  

Enter Holly, a fellow traveler: young, full of life, and comfortable traipsing off the beaten path. Holly feels a connection with Taryn and wants to salvage her trip. After all, they're in freaking Italy! But their radically different travel styles and age differences make for rough terrain.  

Together, they boldly go into unexplored territories of the heart, and may just discover love.

Seeking solace, she takes work at a local hive, only to fall desperately in love with the amazing lady inventor the vampires are keeping in the potting shed. Genevieve Lefoux is heartsick, lonely, and French. With culture, class, and the lady herself set against the match, can Imogene and her duster overcome all odds and win Genevieve's heart, or will the vampires suck both of them dry?

This is a stand-alone LBGTQ sweet romance set in Gail Carriger's Parasolverse, full of class prejudice, elusive equations, and paranormal creatures taking tea.

Amanda thinks it’s an exciting game of make-believe, until dangerous elements from Leigh’s past force her to reveal her true identity and take Amanda with her on the run. The answers lie in Stockholm, but whether Leigh should be more frightened of the Russian mobsters who want her dead, or Amanda when she realizes she’s been lied to, is anyone’s guess. One thing is certain, if they can figure out a way to work together, the seasoned agent and the savvy civilian just might make the perfect team!

As Long As Love Lasts by Jae Hawkins

Publisher Indie Author

No Audiobook

A 2019 Golden Crown Literary Society Award nominee.

2018 - She doesn't know if a marriage is worth fighting for.

Peyton Kennedy quantifies everything in terms of numbers and risk. She looks at a problem and solves it, leaving no piece of the puzzle out. When her young, too-whimsical wife inherits a derelict farmhouse from a distant aunt, Peyton can only see the bottom line. Too much work. Too much money. Time. Energy. Definitely not worth saving. 

But her wife knows how to get her way and Peyton finds herself roped into renovations. This… this may be the straw that breaks her marriage's back, and Peyton's worried about how not worried that makes her. 

That is, until a seventy-year-old bundle of letters and a time-worn diary fall on her head. 

Before she knows it, Peyton is drawn into the story of her wife’s great aunt, Marty, a woman who dared defy social conventions for the love of another woman.

 

1939 - She doesn't know what love is.

Marty Bell thinks life will fall neatly into place. Her mother has expectations: A husband, wealthy enough to give Marty security for the rest of her days. When she meets a beautiful circus worker who shovels dung and pounds stakes for a living, it's the first time Marty sees that she can stray from the path.

Soon, her life is dictated by not just her mother, but the upheaval of war and the one thing she never expected to find: love.

And Marty will risk anything and everything to hold onto it.

Contemporary and historical lesbian romance intertwine in this emotional tale of a diary, an elephant, and four women who know that few things matter more than finding someone who loves them just the way they are.

Love's Portrait by Anna Larner

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a reading from Love's Portrait by Anna Larner

Synopsis 

Newly appointed art curator Molly Goode is committed to diversifying her museum’s collection. When Georgina Wright, the museum’s aloof benefactor, asks for Molly’s help in identifying the provenance of a 19th century portrait of social activist Josephine Brancaster, Molly welcomes the opportunity, even if it means spending time with the standoffish financier. But passions soon flare as the women uncover the heartbreaking story of doomed lesbian love behind the watercolor painted by Josephine’s lover, Edith Hewitt.

As their love blossoms, Molly is determined to display Edith’s portrait of Josephine and to tell their story in the museum, but she needs the influential Georgina to help convince the board. When an unforeseen twist in the painting’s provenance forces Georgina to confront her own painful past, will history repeat itself, or can Molly and Georgina’s love prevail?

Embracing Anxiety and Mental Health with Singer, Songwriter Ash Harris - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

I have welcomed a talented artist on today's show. We're going to chat about some of life's curves and how they helped shape the course of their life. 

I am so excited to introduce you to Ash Harris, also known as Acoustic Ash. Ash is a prolific indie singer songwriter who continues to excel within the songwriting field whether it be through political poetry or the ever-emotionally evoking and sincerity of Ash's interpretation of everyday events. These events include loss, love, money, and politics. 

Ash uses an acoustic guitar in a smoky, soulful expression as a platform for diversity and equality. Rumor has it that if you stick around to the end of this episode you will be in for a musical treat.

Doctored by K’Anne Meinel

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the first chapter of the audiobook for Doctored by K’Anne Meinel narrated by Amelia Patricks

Synopsis 

A brilliant child protégée, she dreams of becoming a doctor and a surgeon...and accomplishes her goals. Unfortunately, her youth and round, childlike face work against her. No matter how skilled she becomes, how knowledgeable, the old school, male-dominated medical hierarchy wants to keep her in her place.

Deanna has worked hard to become an expert in her chosen field, but few believe this "child" capable. Specializing in infectious diseases, she travels the world - from the States to Europe to South America - honing her skills before winding up in Africa where her skills are desperately needed. 

Meeting a nurse by the name of Madison MacGregor, she finds they share an insatiable curiosity and a love of helping others, but falling in love was not what she intended. Later, when she loses Maddie to a misunderstanding, she is haunted by the one that got away....

Ten years have passed, and both the doctor and nurse have moved on with their lives, but fate intervenes when they find themselves working at the same hospital. Their friendship is revived.... Can their love be rekindled? Will the past haunt them or bring them closer? Will the secrets that both harbor keep them from realizing a future together?

Wendy Hudson Talks Sailing, Being an Author and a Goldie Winner

Seize the Day Podcast

 

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays show, I am joined by the very lovely, Wendy Hudson.

 

Wendy talks to me about being an author, a sailor and how it felt winning a GLCS Goldie for her debut book, Four Steps.  She has many stories to tell, including a near death experience... it has a happy ending, don't worry ;) .  And heads up, her 'most used emoji' is truly hilarious.

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to point us in the right direction. 

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

Deadly Deception by Cade Brogan

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the first chapter of the audiobook for Deadly Deception by Cade Brogan narrated by Emily Beresford.

Synopsis 

Three die in a psychiatric hospital.

A triple homicide.

A contagion, deadly and mysterious, is the killer’s weapon of choice.

 

A dart flies.

A woman dies in the shower, her neck punctured.

A homicide, hours from Chicago.

Poison, deadly and concocted, is the killer’s weapon of choice.

 

As her city teeters on the verge of panic, Detective Rylee Hayes is forced to divide her attention between two killers—one whose actions could result in a global pandemic and the other, an old nemesis, whose next target is her fiancée.

 

And the clock ticks down…

Do You Believe In Soul Mates?

Coffee Break With KA & Dana: Meaningful Conversations From A Lesbian Perspective

Do you believe in soul mates? Do you believe that somewhere there’s a person who makes you whole? If you ran into her at a coffee shop or on the street would you know her? Would you have the courage to put yourself out there—to risk it all for love? In this episode KA and Dana discuss:

  • soul mates
  • marriage
  • divorce
  • KA's books -- Soul Mates and For A Moment's Indiscretion

KA is an author of lesbian fiction with degrees in counseling, psychology, and social work. She writes stories about lesbians, burdened by past trauma, who find healing in the love of a soul mate.

Dana is an avid reader, a recovering alcoholic, a fisher-woman, and a graduate of the school of hard knocks.

As co-hosts, they're quite the duo. Connect with them online at www.kamoll.com

How to Deal with Creative Burnout - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It is great to have goals and desires and a steady pulse on actions. But, it’s only great as long as you are not burning the wick on both ends. Because when you do that, that light, that energy will fizzle out.

Have you ever felt this way? Completely overwhelmed and unable to continue with projects, even those projects you absolutely love? You’re not alone. Even the most passionate of creative people can end up burning out from the pressure of always trying to keep up with an unrealistic pace.

Here's how to avoid it: 

  • Unplug
  • Find harmony in the work you do
  • Add wiggle room
  • Change your environment
  • Meditate with deep breathing
