THE GRIT SHOW - Growth on Purpose

THE GRIT SHOW - Growth on Purpose

This is a community for the givers and the doers. We have the grit, we’ve powered through, and now we are ready for the other side. Now we are ready for the conversations that remind us about self-care, a dialogue that brings us back to purpose, and helps us find more room to breathe and live life with a little more ease. We want to discover tools and ways of thinking that support alignment, build stronger connections, help us find better questions, and live our best life. Most weeks we laugh, some weeks the topics touch close to home and there is a tear in our eye, but ultimately; this is where we grow together as seekers and thrivers.

Is there something that you want in your life? Something that you wish you had room for? What might you let go of to invite that in? 
Gratitude and Regret are two very different emotions and today Shawna shares how gratitude may be the key to letting go; and that sometimes letting go starts with letting go of regret. This week we are revisiting the one-on-one style of Thursday Thoughts- but on a Tuesday with the longer length of our...

As we age, it's hard to think of it as just a number. Many women feel less valued and a little invisible. Dr. Robin Miller heard this from her patients and wrote the book “Invisible or Invincible: Your Choice” in response. She wants to empower women to take control of their health and aging and be seen. From hormones to gut health (yes, all comes down to poop) to integrating exercise and joy, we touch on a lot of relevant topic...

Today our focus is alignment in relationships, which quickly led to one of my favorite topics, the five love languages. I’ve always felt they were a valuable tool since I first discovered them fresh out of college. They do a lot to help you understand what you need so that your keep feels full and to understand that others around may need different things so that they can feel loved. We mostly speak about it in romantic relationshi...

Words. We use them every single day. We use some of them to define ourselves, perhaps reflexively. How often do we question those definitions? Do we know where they’ve come from? Why we choose them, who gave them to us? How often do we let those definitions grow and change? How often do they still fit where we are and who we are today? Do we check in with those nearest and dearest to us to see how they define some of these words, t...

Decision making. It’s something we do every single day, multiple times a day. I’m sure we’ve all seen that sometimes, it can be overwhelming, even debilitating; no matter how much we are keeping it together in other areas, sometimes we get tripped up. Fortunately, Kirsten Parker realized this was a common theme she saw with the people she was coaching and it became something she has specialized in. Our conversation touches on her j...

Do you get overwhelmed by a seemingly endless to do list?
I sure do. It has taken me awhile to develop strategies to manage this, and after being sent in a spiral this past week by trying to follow a well-intended suggestion to start digitizing my endless list of things to accomplish, take care of, and address... (which resulted in wasting half of my day and losing all focus) I drilled down and remembered the brass tacks of what act...

Welcome to Thursday Thoughts on The Grit Show. This week, we are chatting about something you would see as innocuous under most circumstances: cherry blossoms. However, the science of epigenetics and the inheritable intergenerational effects of trauma are quite intriguing and may have you looking at these lovely markers of spring in a whole new way. Epigenetics is something Shawna has long been interested in and although this field...

    If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?


    It’s a lighthearted nightmare in here, weirdos! Morbid is a true crime, creepy history and all things spooky podcast hosted by an autopsy technician and a hairstylist. Join us for a heavy dose of research with a dash of comedy thrown in for flavor.
