How to Get to Where You Want to Be

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Most of us spend our time looking ahead. We get excited when we think about an upcoming trip, the beginning of a new television series, summer when it’s winter, a new job, or a holiday. There’s always something to look ahead at. Something that calls us to pay attention to it and be there in our minds instead of where we are. This can be dangerous. 
 
We discuss:
  • Why living in the future is dangerous to your life today
  • How you can better set yourself up for success right now
  • How to connect with yourself on an intimate honest level
  • How to confront that which challenges and scares you

Goodordering Interview with Jacqui Ma - Seize the Day Podcast

Goodordering Interview with Jacqui Ma

Seize the Day Podcast

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.   In todays show I get to interview the very inspiring Jacqui Ma, founder and designer at Goodordering.  We talk #bags #cycling #instagram and Jacqui also talks through a very personal health challenge she is facing at the moment.

 

One of the motivators for starting Seize the Day, was to get inspirational women on the show and talk through how they found success and what got them to the point they are at now, so I’m really delighted to have Jacqui join me in this episode.

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite Latin expression Carpe Diem.  I’m very much a “glass is half full” person and I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life, who have offered me invaluable guidance.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips and sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to remind us.

Curves Welcome - How to Add Value to the World

Curves Welcome - How to Add Value to the World

We’re in the midst of challenging times. Everywhere we turn, we’re hit with news that affects us all on a deep level, some deeper than others. Many of what we are facing in the world triggers alarms within, sounding off warnings that we better buckle in for a bumpy ride or else be tossed out of our seats and land in the sea of what can only be described as incomprehensible.

Families are being torn apart by indifferences brought out by politicians, governments, and religions. What once used to be an energizing get together with those we care about has now flipped into something that brings on panic, fears, and insecurities.

The situations that bring these emotional levees to the breaking point may change along with the passing tides, but here’s what remains the same: the solutions lay not in an instruction manual that in some make believe world we’d be privy to get our hands on but in our ability to act with love and compassion in order to bridge new pathways to peace within the contexts of our own lives.

Curves Welcome - How to Manage Time Effectively

If you are the type who says yes to everyone because you don’t want to let them down or seem like you’re not being a team player, you’re going to get hurt. By hurt I mean, you’re going to burn out. It’s as simple as that. The more demands you let others toss on you, the less time you have to be the best version of yourself. You can’t add value to your family, friends, volunteer organization, or job if you’re heading for a nervous breakdown.

Tune in to learn how to take back control of your day.

Curves Welcome - Why You Want to Rock the Boat

September 13, 2018

Curves Welcome - Why You Want to Rock the Boat

 

Healthy conflict is essential to healthy relationships. In the beginning of the coming-of-age novel, The Fiche Room, Emma Hill avoided conflict at all costs with those closest to her. She feared fighting and what it would do to her life. She didn’t want to rock the boat because by doing so, she’d have to face potential hurt, chaos, and truths that she’d kept hidden all her life.

She assumed, like many of us, that by keeping the peace, her relationships could stay healthy. Although, what she failed to understand was that by remaining amenable, she caged herself and those she loved. By stayng silent on matters that were impotant to her, she risked destroying the delicate tapestry of honesty, integrity, and trust

Silence is not the answer.

Tune in to learn how to engage in healthy conflict and enrich your relationships.

HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR

Seize the Day Podcast

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell where we explore how to seize all of the opportunities life presents us on a day by day basis, and the tools we can use to help us succeed.

 

In show four I look at how to overcome fear.  Fear can really cripple us and a lot of people are unable to do things, because of it.  I use this episode to explain how we can turn fear into confidence and action, by breaking it down into the three areas: -

 

  1. What is fear - why do we have fear?
  2. Different types of fear?
  3. How to overcome fear?

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite Latin expression Carpe Diem.  I’m very much a “glass is half full” person and I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life, who have offered me invaluable guidance.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips and sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to remind us.

Curves Welcome – Life on Your Terms

Maybe you’ve found yourself living a life on someone else’s terms, a life, if given an easier choice, you never would’ve made for yourself. That happens a lot. Choosing a life path not at all in sync with your heart because it’s just easier than rocking the boat with those in your life. 

It’s not comfortable to rock the boat, after all. It can be quite terrifying, in fact. It’s terrifying because you don’t know how those close to you will think of your true calling or true self. Will they still love you? Will they accept you as you truly are? Will this change in a life path alter their lives in a way that will make you feel guilt, even if it is unjustified guilt?

What’s at stake if you don’t choose life on your own terms?

Curves Welcome – How to Build Inner Strength

No one is immune to struggle. But you know, struggle is the builder of strength. Without it, you’re never going to find out just how strong you are.

Your inner voice can do some serious damage if you allow it to run wild. It’ll tell you things that simply aren’t true. It will make things seem bigger and scarier than they are for you. That voice can stop you in your tracks and talk you into running in the other direction, the opposite direction to where you might need to truly go. Without intervention, it will place doubt in your mind and cloud your vision, your vision of who you really are, which is much stronger than you likely give yourself credit for being.

So how do you get to that point where instead of being the underdog, you become the superhero of your story?

Tune in to explore this with me.

Comments From The Facebook Group 

Michelle Do not create the opportunity for regrets. Stop hating yourself, you are special, ignore anyone who says otherwise. My past has contributed to who I am today (who I am very much at peace with) so I wouldn't want anything to change anything other than a few of the darkest moments although I suppose they are the most significant....so maybe just that everything is going to be OK  

Brooklyn Don't worry, Brooklyn I'll get cool and skinny soon enough just keep trying. 

Marlen Stop worrying about what everyone thinks. Don’t try so hard to fit in. Be yourself and proud of yourself 

Kat Don't listen to your friends. Drinking is NOT cool and boys ARE gross 

Rachel You will conclude that god isn’t real, and if she is she wouldn’t judge you for who you love so let go of that fear. The world is so much bigger and more beautiful than you know yet. Your parents may not ever fully accept you, but it will get better and it will be worth it to be true to yourself regardless. Also, don’t fully burn bridges with homophobic friends and family. You’ll be surprised at the people that come around, and you’ll wish you could restore some of those relationships you walked away from. Finally, when that girl tells you she loves you, don’t be so afraid to follow up, because you’ll always wonder what might have been. 

Andi "Depression is a real thing and you're not a freak for having it and you will figure out how to better manage it. That's why I'm here and able to tell you that. Also, it's okay to be gay and you will find your people.” 

Suzie Write down all those stories in your head now. Don't wait until your mid twenties. 

Tig You're an introvert and at least bisexual, and that's fine. Now go out and enjoy yourself, then recharge at home for a week. And all those normal people? As weird as you, just in different ways. 

Erin The world you inhabit now is as small as the minds who make you feel you don’t belong. The world beyond is limitless, so hang in there and realise your potential. 

Heather Goodness, so much to say and so little likelihood that I’d have believed it. I guess I’d try for, “Live your life on the assumption that you’ll never find the love of your life, because you probably won’t. Try not to let it get to you. Oh, and you’re going to choose the wrong graduate advisor but there’s nothing can be done about it. It’s not you, it’s her.” 

Em There is someone out there who will love you for who you are, so don’t panic, do not hate yourself, don’t try to change just be yourself, it will all work out. Oh yeah and getting shit faced every weekend doesn’t help, so give it a miss if you can. Also ignore that your sister said you can’t get a boy cause you are ugly, because you figure out later you are a chick magnet and never ever wanted a boy anyway. 

Marlen There is nothing wrong with me it’s must be the universe 

Wendy It'll all be okay in the end. 

About The Hosts

Sheena comes from a media background and in 2014 she started The Lesbian Review, a website dedicated to reviewing the best lesbian books and movies. In 2016 A podcast channel seemed like a natural progression and so she started The Lesbian Talk Show.  

Sheena discovered lesbian fiction in her late teens and it helped her with her coming out process, something for which she will always be grateful.  

Tamara is a marketing professional and has branched out into design and photography. Her natural love for research and learning meant that she was the perfect podcast partner when Sheena wanted to start Les Talk About It. (Well, that and the fact that Tamara is married to Sheena.)  

About The Show 

Les Talk About It is a show dedicated to busting the myths around lesbians. We look at everything from flannel to lesbians being cat ladies, loving softball and having carabiners.  

One of the first shows to be started on The Lesbian Talk Show, it has been running since 2016.
