No. It was probably one of the first words you learned to say, and had no problem doing so... but what about now? Have you lost your conviction in saying No to things and people who don't uplift you?
 
Did you know that "No" is a complete sentence?
 
People don’t always test your boundaries for selfish reasons. At some point, a pattern of behavior stops working for us and it makes us anxious or uncomfortable, and a new need arises to say “No” to things we have been saying “Yes” to for a long time.
 
In this episode of the Kickin' it with Daree podcast, therapist and life coach Latasha Matthews of IllumiNATION Counseling talks about her book The Dumping Ground and explains the need for setting boundaries when certain patterns of behavior stop working in our relationships, getting out of "the dump," and how YOU have the power to make choices and help set the rules of engagement for various types of relationships in your life.

Our culture teaches us that as women, we must constantly sacrifice our wants or needs for others, and that thinking of doing anything special for yourself is selfish or unspiritual.

  • Overcoming the blocks that stop you from pursuing your dreams
  • Recognizing and adjusting your priorities
  • Strategies to pursue your dream even if you are working for someone else

Children love to pretend. But when you become an adult, you're not supposed to continue playing pretend, right? So why are so many grown ups still pretending? Either they are busy deceiving others or self-deceived.  

 

In this episode, I talked with the author of The Invitation to Love, Darren Pierre, Ph.D about:

  • Why people grow up and keep living a life of pretense
  • How you can help someone that you suspect is living a lie
  • Learning to live with authenticity
  • Having empathy for people who haven’t “grown up”

Just because you can get it on and pull it up, doesn't mean you should wear it outside. There's just some things you can't "unsee."  And the poor taste in fashion--being a little more trashy than classy--trickles to our kids. Some kids are growing up with female influences that are not the best examples about how to present yourself.  Or they’re taking their cues on appearance and beauty from celebrities on ratchet reality TV shows. My guest, life stylist and designer Kionica Tolbert  of @UniquelyHooked in Dallas, TX breaks it all down.

In this episode, Kionica and I discuss:

  • How to select appropriate fashions by age (13 and up)
  • Setting the rules for how to dress in public
  • Guidelines for dressing modestly (to offend the fewest number of folks)

When our spouse, partner or significant other hurts us, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the results we are hoping for. There is a quote from a book called Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, and he says: You can be right, but wrong at the top of your voice. In essence, what this means is that we can be "right" in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we respond.  We should treat each other with respect, even in the midst of conflict. And being kind and respectful is more likely to lead to reconciliation, because being kind, respectful, tolerant, and patient even in the face of hurt feelings allows your partner to focus on his or her mistakes, rather than your response. 

 

In this episode, LB and I discuss:
  • How to diffuse heated arguments
  • Proper communication that won’t alienate your significant other during a conflict
  • How to T.H.I.N.K. before you speak and avoid “trigger” words
  • Avoiding the “Win or Lose” mentality and mind-shifting your perspective on the issues

It can be scary to try to step out and do something new, especially when it comes to your career and your relationships.  But instead of asking yourself,  “What if I fail” or “What if I can't do it?”, but rather, “What happens if I DON'T?”  So many people wonder what will happen if they step out on something and fail, but what about if they never try?

No one can stop you from following your dreams and pursuing your purpose—no one but you. Life coach Kizmat Tention (aka "Kizzymat") shares her inspiring story and explains how she designed the STEP UP program to help her clients step up, take control of their lives and start living life on purpose.

As you coast through your Facebook timeline, does it not seem that your "friends" are living a fabulous life? Do you ever feel a smidge of discontent? Or maybe it's not personal relationships, but business successes that drive you a little crazy on the inside with each one you see? And if it affects you a certain way, what goes on in the minds of teens? They get so much of their sense of self-worth and ideals from their peers and interactions on social media.

Join us on this episode as I talk with Shan Thomas Creative Marketing Specialist and CEO of EntrepreNewHER in Atlanta, GA about:

  • How to manage social media, self-esteem, selfies and shaming, and
  • How to protect ourselves and prevent our children from pain in the aftermath of sexting and revenge porn

Just as often as single women are asked, "Why are you still single?," childless women of a certain age (regardless of marital status) are frequently asked about when they will have children. There seems to be a societal norm and attitude that women SHOULD bear at least one child by a certain age. Sometimes they are pressed even after having one child, to have more.  But:
  • What if you are childless by choice, enjoying your life with no one else to answer to?
  • What if you have tried to get pregnant or adopt, without success?
  • What if you're just annoyed by the nerve of someone asking such a personal question (sometimes with judgment)?

In this episode, I interview Tangie Henry, RN, Certified Life Coach and Certified Personal Trainer, Founder, Inspired Sistah LLC and she gives her personal testimony about being childless by choice.

How can we create and cultivate friendships as an adult? With so many demands on our time, including jobs, school and family obligations, sometimes we don't get to spend time with our friends as much as we'd like. Months and even years can go by without seeing friends who live in the same area. In an age of social media and technology, we can easily become more distant and disconnected.  Allen Wagner is my guest in Part 1 of this topic.
 
In this episode, you will learn...
  • The four different levels/categories of friendship and how to distinguish between them
