This week we talk about wanting more. Even when we have a lot! EVEN WHEN WE SEEMINGLY HAVE IT ALL. We talk about finally putting your foot down and no longer settling for smallness or "good enough". Whether it's money, work, love, friendships, your health, ANYTHING, you're allowed to want more.
"Tie the dog to the damn tree" is some advice Laura heard a few years ago and in the past month, as things started to fall apart, she realized she needed to listen. This week we talk about the anxiety and problems that ensue when we can't tell the difference between what's urgent and important, how to learn to discern between the two, and what to do.
What if you consciously committed to failure and rejection? This week we share some of our own big failures (past and current), how to actually tell if you’re failing (because sometimes it’s not obvious!), and the difference between failing smart and failing, well, dumb.
Ahhh, Impostor Syndrome. The hidden affliction of... maybe, everyone? We break it down, talk about when we've felt it, why, how it's stopped us from moving forward, and how you can work with it so it stops stopping you.
Is there a conversation you've been having for waaaaay too long? (There is, we promise.) This week, we talk about the conversations we want to stop having, and what happens when you get stuck in a loop without realizing it.
This week, we recap what happened during a girls weekend in Big Sur together. Highlights include Murder Mountain, Marie Kondo, 67 pounds of coffee, and collage making (#nerdalert). But not just any collage. We did what Meadow teaches as part of her course, The Worthy Project--a collage that drastically upended her life the first time she did it. It's a specific formula and we'll give you a fly-on-the-wall view of how we constructed ours, how it works, and how you can build your own worthy backbone.
In Part 2 of the Boundary Series, Laura and Meadow discuss the first signs of boundary violations, why anger is such a vital emotion, and how to start protecting your own space when other people are living all over you.

While Laura was down with the flu, she realized how bad she sucks at asking for help. So this week, they talk about some of the myths around asking for help, what it means to be part of a village, and why we want to continually tell ourselves that we can do life alone.
What do we do when everything falls apart, despite our best effort? When our good intentions are misunderstood? When the haters hate? When we can't make ourselves small enough to be liked? Laura and Meadow discuss.
Jealousy and envy suck. Meadow and Laura break down the difference between the two and what they're actually good for using Laura's (embarrassing, cringe-worthy) example.
In this episode, Laura contemplates her possible cat-lady future, Meadow wants a puppy and has a crying hang-over from This Is Us.
