Make it Mentionable with Alyssa Patmos

Hi, I’m Alyssa Patmos soon-to-be Alyssa Kulesa and I’m endlessly curious about how to human. In a world that discourages talking about the taboo, I bought a microphone. As Mister Rogers said, “Anything human is mentionable and anything mentionable is manageable.” I invite you to join me as we journey through the mess, the magic, and the mania in between because what we can talk about we can manage. This honest conversation extravaganza includes free-flowing conversations and high doses of vulnerability to remind you that you aren’t alone. No topic is off limits. Episodes are designed to leave you smarter (aka more self-aware) than when you came.

No one wants to feel like a doormat. So naturally, we employ strategies to protect ourselves from getting walked all over.

The good news is, there’s a simple pivot you can make the next time you feel defensive that will help you dissolve the conflict instead of starting the doom spiral.

Self-help can feel like a public bathroom. You know you have to go, but you don’t really want to use it. Change is easier when it elicits positive emotions like joy, pleasure, or hope. It’s harder when it elicits criticism, judgement, shame, and guilt. Self-help can quickly leave us feeling like there’s a laundry list of things to “fix” about ourselves. Pivot your perspective from self-help to self-growth to make the progress you’v...

Ever feel like there isn't enough time? This week I'm talking about the power of our attention. If we want to reclaim our time, we have to reclaim where our attention flows. Because if we aren’t intentional about our attention, everyone else is happy to claim it for themselves. Our attitudes, thoughts, and actions get an upgrade when we're conscious of where our attention is going. I share three questions to reclaim ...
