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

June 7, 2018

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?

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.

Curves Welcome: How to Benefit from Criticism

February 15, 2018

Curves Welcome –How to Benefit from Criticism

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr reflects back on a critical review that changed her life.

What do you do when someone criticizes you? Do you let it stop you? Or do you use that criticism to your advantage and as a tool for growth? Yeah, that’s hard to do. To look at criticism as a tool for growth. When someone slings hurt your way, the first reaction you want to take is to sling it right back, right? The ego gets involved and says, how dare you treat me this way? How dare you insult me?

But, what if you took a different approach? What if instead of slinging it back in an attempt to protect yourself from hurt, you put it aside for a while until your emotions cooled? Then, when they’re nice and cool you approach it again through a new lens, a lens of objectivity, a lens of discovery.

You’re probably thinking, hey wait a minute, this person just ripped me into a million pieces, and publicly no less, and you want me to discover something through a lens of objectivity? What are you nuts?

I guess maybe I am a little nuts. Hahaha

Tune in to find out just how nuts I can be with this…

Curves Welcome: How to Stop Comparing Yourself

Curves Welcome – How to Stop Comparing Yourself

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr reflects on how we compare ourselves to others, and the damage this causes us.

 

I listened to a podcast by Brendan Burchard the other day and he said something that completely resonated. “When we compare, we stop performing our best because we are following instead of doing our own thing.”

I do believe that comparisons can be helpful if you do so with the intention to grow and learn from them.

But most of us, when we compare, we are often doing so from a viewpoint of lack and if I’m being honest, envy. Of course, this doesn’t serve us. We know it’s a dangerous game to compare ourselves because it brings about feelings of inadequacy and can seriously stunt our growth. Yet, many of us still do it.

Tune in to find out why we do this and how we can stop through a simple change in perspective.

Curves Welcome: How to Improve Focus

January 4, 2018

Curves Welcome – How to Improve Focus

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr takes a look at priorities and how they play a crucial part in our life journey.

Focusing too intently on activities that aren’t related to your priorities will only cause you to move further away from it. That’s obvious, but incredibly many of us tend to forget this important fact as we go about our daily life. We are lured into the temptation of eating the wrong foods, selecting TV over exercise, procrastinating about getting our blog or books written or studying that course on finance we may have deemed as a priority. We see this neglect all the time with people who want to be active, yet they dedicate themselves to clearing out their DVD recordings by watching marathon episodes the whole day.

I’ve been there. I’ve opted to watch hours upon hours of recordings of American Idol year after year while I had big projects waiting on me to get started. Watching a star be born on American television will not help me generate revenue and put food on my table. My word count for the day will not build itself. I am not going to meet new readers or score interview opportunities if I’m parked passively in front of the television watching someone else give birth to her dream.

We’ve got this one shot at life, friends. One shot to make the most out of an incredible gift. Don’t let the distractions take you away from experiencing the satisfaction of living a life of purpose, rich with those things that open your heart and put a smile on your face.

Tune in to learn how to focus on what’s really important in your life.

Curves Welcome: Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

December 21, 2017

Curves Welcome –Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr analyzes uncertainty and its powerful effect on life. She examines those who have the ability to take a bad situation and create a good outcome from it.

Uncertainty is as much a part of life as breathing. Most of us fear uncertainty on some level. We may fear things like getting into a car accident on the way to the grocery store, losing our job that we love, finding out we didn’t get that promotion we sought, missing out on a fun vacation because of a lack of funds, having our car not start on an important meeting day. You’re not alone if you’ve had these thoughts. But what makes us have these thoughts in the first place?

Some experts might say it’s out intolerance of uncertainty that causes us to fear it.

Interestingly enough, many of us view uncertainty as a bad thing. We attribute a bad outcome to its presence. But what if that uncertainty is necessary for you to get to a new place, a better place? What if these uncertain situations create good outcomes in the end?

Tune in and see how bad things can evolve into good.

Curves Welcome: How to Be Attentive to the Present Moment

Curves Welcome – How to Be Attentive to the Present Moment

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr talks about one of the greatest life lessons she learned from her dogs, how to be more mindful in this chaotic world.

The greatest lessons I’ve learned in life have been through my dogs. Dogs are natural leaders, healers, and friends. Without words, without judgment, without criticism, and instead with a simple look, they know exactly how to communicate the important things in life.

One of the greatest life lessons I learned that I learned from my dogs is indulging in the present moment, or in other words, being mindful.

Dogs understand how to live in the present moment. They know how to dig in and really grasp the here and now. If we can learn how to be more mindful, we can learn how to live a better life. How to stay calm, centered and attentive to the present moment.

What do mindful people do on a daily basis to make the most out of life? Tune in the find out!
