The Desire to be Needed

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Life is all about giving. About serving. About adding value. About being part of a greater purpose than your own. The desire to feel needed is universal and is healthy as long as it is served in a way that lifts you and betters this world and those who live in it. In this episode, I share a very personal revelation I just learned that has helped me to understand how to embrace the need to be needed in order to live authentically and purposefully.

 
We discuss:
  • Common misconceptions on what drives us
  • Turning wishful thinking on its side and turning to thoughtful action instead
  • Learning to discover what you truly want out of life
  • How to open up to life's unexpected surprises

Global Girl Project Interview with Julia Lynch by Natalie Miller-Snell - Seize the Day Podcast

Global Girl Project Interview with Julia Lynch

Seize the Day Podcast

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.   In todays show I am incredibly fortunate to get to interview the very inspiring Julia Lynch, founder of Global Girl Project, a wonderful leadership exchange program for young women from developing countries.  Julia tells us about #travelling #nepal #capoeira #disney and how #globalgirlproject began.

 

One of the motivators for starting Seize the Day was to get inspirational women on the show, to talk through how they found success, what got them to the point they are at now, and why they do it, so I’m truly delighted to have Julia join me in this episode.  She is #makingadifference in the world.

 

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.

Claim Victory Over Life

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

When everything in the world tells you to turn around, to go back to where you feel safe, to go back to that place where you don’t have to expose yourself to discomfort, what do you do?

Do you follow the same path as everyone else and oblige? Or do you go toward that unknown anyway in hopes of finding your purpose? 

 
We discuss:
  • Why the most challenging paths are the best for our future
  • How to continue the journey when others whisper your defeat with it
  • When to ignore the naysayers and travel outside the norm
  • How to keep going when everything in you screams for your mercy to stop and go back to comfort

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

How to Get in the Zone - Curves Welcome

October 25, 2018

How to Get in the Zone

Curves Welcome

How to get in the zone. I know a lot about this. In fact, I would bet any writer knows about this. To sit down and create a brand new world in 80,000 words, give or take, requires an extreme connection with the zone. You might be a writer, cook, accountant, doctor, no matter what you do there always comes a point where you need to zone into something with everything you have. Not getting there can be extremely frustrating.

I know how that feels. First, let me say, life tosses us curveballs and those curveballs can totally take us off track. One minute we’ve got laser precise focus on our intentions, the next second, yes second, because that’s all it takes, we are thrown so far off course we can’t even begin to recognize the landscape before us.

Many things can do this to us, job loss, a fight with someone we care about, an accident, a death, even good things like winning the lottery, getting a promotion, receiving an award, beginning a new friendship or romantic relationship. Any outlier to your set point can catapult you from where you intended to be. Good or bad.

And because life isn’t linear - if it were that would be boring - we’re forced to deal with this imbalance throughout our life. And the sooner we can recenter, the sooner we’ll get back to that incredible feeling of being in the zone.

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

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

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.
