Your Courageous Life podcast

Kate Swoboda says that it's time--time for us to release the fear that holds us back, and step into being our most courageous selves. To do that, we've got to get real about the fear-based behavioral habits that have become patterns controlling our lives. When you start rewiring the habits that have had you stuck, you emerge excited about what's possible, ready to take on life as an adventure, and more resilient in the face of discomfort and challenges. The Your Courageous Life podcast is some parts inspiration, other parts "What are you waiting for?", and always real about the doable actions to change your habits and change your life. Get ready to believe that everything is figure-out-able, that your past doesn't define you, and that it's time to stop dreaming big...it's time to start living big.... Show More

Perhaps the concept of reframing fear is something you’ve heard of--but you haven’t had any practice reframing fear around real-life situations. In this podcast episode, I’m sharing the behind-the-scenes of how I’m navigating the very real fears that have come up for me as I’m packing up our home and navigating the uncertainty of a move...when we don’t know (yet) where we’re moving *to.* Get ready to explore what it’s like to go be...

While the title of this episode is about improving your marriage, what I’m sharing today really applies to any relationship where there’s been conflict or where you’re wanting greater connection. In relationships, we bring our past conditioning and expectations, and today I’m talking about how to step into more powerful relating (in the truest sense of the word) in your partnerships.

We’ve all been there--we try something, decide it’s “not for us” and then move on. But what if staying with the process and truly going all-in would give us more than we ever realized? In this podcast episode, I’m talking about what gets lost along the way and how sometimes the medicine we most need is the medicine we most resist--and only staying with the process will show us what we need to learn.

In this podcast episode on getting things done, I’m outlining some of the things that I’m doing since the COVID-19 pandemic has hit, to manage...life. I’m a wife, mother, CEO of a company, Director of a training program, author of books, and yes, just like you I’ve got laundry to do, meals to make, and I need to remember to get my car insurance paid. So how do I do it all? Spending big bucks to hire out has not been my answer. And,...

Yes, I know--it’s part of the self-help canon to say “Take charge of your life!” But of course--because this is the Your Courageous Life podcast--we’re meaning something more nuanced. You can’t control pandemics, death, taxes, suffering, so I’m not going to talk to you about just switching your mindset, and that’s it. At the same time? Yes, take charge of your life wherever and whenever you possibly can--because what are the other ...

We don’t do personal growth work for times when life is just peachy--yes, we love the daily benefits, but really, we’re doing personal growth work for times like these. This is what we train for. We’re training to boost our emotional resilience so that when life hands us challenges, we can face them. Will we be afraid? Yes. Will we choose courage? Absolutely. Here's how.

Okay, things are changing--the world as we know it has definitely changed for the foreseeable future--so you need to know how to pivot. You’ll be making multiple pivots in the coming months, changing as circumstances change, adjusting, noticing how you feel and honoring that, making tough choices. So amid those tough choices, knowing how to pivot as needed (rather than getting stuck) is crucial.

As we go out into the world and encounter other people, it’s helpful to remember to watch what you make it mean (meaning: be aware that you are the one applying the interpretation). As we navigate challenges and difficulties, we can’t be in control of what’s happening “out there,” but we have absolute autonomy over our intentions, where we place our attention, and whether we react vs respond. This is a profound moment to “choose wh...

Learning to love yourself isn’t about trying to reach perfection, nor is it about abandoning all attempts to improve your life. You can absolutely want to change or improve your life in some way, without that being an indication that you don’t fundamentally love yourself. And, you also don’t need to wait until those changes are made, before you can learn to love yourself. Today’s podcast episode breaks down the often tricky nuances...

Burnout is tough. It’s far easier to preventively avoid burnout than it is to start beating burnout once you’re stuck in it. Today’s episode, however, is going to address both ends of this spectrum. If you’re trying to be proactive about avoiding burnout, or if you’re currently focused on beating burnout because it’s everywhere, I’m reviewing intentional practices that you can put into your life (starting today!). I’ll be going ove...

What really throws us off, in our lives? Is it “not knowing” what we need to do? Sometimes, sure, but what throws us off more often is parsing through feelings. We get overwhelmed, stressed, afraid, and we aren’t sure how to keep moving forward when those feelings are a lot (or, worse, when someone around us responds by telling us to “Just calm down” or “Just think positive” in response to what we feel). Knowing how to regulate emo...

In today’s episode, I’m talking about what to do when you feel lost and confused (the kind of lost and confused where you’re feeling stuck, unsure of where to go next, and are hoping to arrive at some clarity that gets you moving, again). When you feel lost and confused, it’s time to slow down and understand a bit about what’s lead you here. Let’s start breaking this down, piece by piece, to see how you can start seeing your way th...

As I recorded this episode, the Sonoma County fires of 2019 were happening--and I live in Sonoma County, approximately 20 miles from the initial origin of the fires. I wanted to share an episode on handling difficult situations and use challenging circumstances such as these fires and how they have impacted myself and my community, to highlight ways of handling difficult situations.
