“Never be a prisoner of your past. It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.” In this episode we discuss ways in which we can feel more in control of writing our story. It’s hard to change the beliefs we formed about ourselves and the world when we were younger, but it is possible.
Guess what- most of us procrastinate. Motivation FOLLOWS action. We get real in this episode about what’s behind procrastination and what we can do about it.
In this week’s episode we talk about building trust in ourselves in our ability to handle uncertainty. Why do we so confidently say that we “hate uncertainty” when we handle so much of it successfully every day? We want to invite you to help us to change the narrative that the unknown sucks and we can’t handle it.
In this episode we explore how to sift through all of the things we’re told will make us happy and get to the core mindset and habits that will support our own individual definition of “happy”. Emily K. introduces our listeners to the research of Sonja Lyubomirsky.
It’s how we think, act, dress, buy, relate…it’s everything! How can we become more purposeful in areas where we want to re-condition our beliefs or behaviors? In this episode, we explore how to think more critically about where our faulty beliefs stem from and how to go about changing them.
The Emilys discuss how to be more thoughtful of our energy, or our VIBES.

In this episode the Emilys discuss the topic of perceptions vs reality, which quickly becomes a conversation about assumptions. Assumptions are where we blur fact and story. We make them in a millisecond. What if we could get better at catching and challenging our auto-conclusions? The hosts delve into the wondrous workings of the brain and make suggestions on how to let your soul shine and stop making an ass out of u + me.
This topic nearly stumps the Emilys because forgiveness is so hard to do. Forgiveness isn’t a weakness, it’s the strength to pull yourself from a negative state and opening yourself up to try again. In this episode everything from the benefits of being forgiving to Keanu Reeves is discussed.
In this episode we discuss our culture’s tendency to label unpleasant feelings as “bad”, which makes us resist them instead of process and hold them. News flash: unpleasant emotions are part of our contract with life. But the good news is that we can handle them better than we think we can. The Emilys explore how to view and manage feelings that can sometimes be scary.
