  • In-Between: Dog Drama & Grounding Yourself During the Chaos

    First person POV show notes: Now that I'm back from Italy and recapped the trip on last week's episode, let's jump into how our world got turned upside down with our pup. I'm giving you all the deets on what went down with Luna – it was pretty traumatic, but in the word's of Kelly Clarkson – what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. *nervous laughter* With that happening, ya girl needed to ground herself. Life has literally been flipped since we got back into town, and I finally decided to do this mid-year goal check in. Well, in typical Liz fashion, I kept the tab opened and finally did it 3 months later LOL. So I'm calling it my 3/4 year check in. Jokes aside, this exercise really helped me, and i'm spilling all the tea in today's episode. Don't forget to rate this show, review, and follow wherever you listen to podcasts. Ooh! This episode is also on YOUTUBE!

  • In-Between: Surviving Not Thriving

    MAYDAY! We are allll over the place in this week's in-between, but at least Liz is offering you prime hilarity as she goes through it. This week's episode is bringing you a few updates in Liz's world, some funny, some adulting, but entertaining nonetheless. Liz is also talking about a new book she just finished – Drama Free! So a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  From expensive dental visits, to the fact that we're leaving for ITALY IN A WEEK, this episode is full of energy (that BIG LIZ ENERGY BLE) that will leave you giggling.

  • In-Between: Advice To My Younger Self

    This week's in-between may be titled advice to my younger self, but everything I say relates to any walk of life. So whether you're a twenty something navigating what I call "second puberty", or a thirty-something pivoting in their career, or a forty-something looking to love themself, this episode offers something to everyone. 

    In a nutshell, Elizabeth's advice to her younger self includes:
    Overall, stop comparing yourself to others. 

    Relationships – 

    • You cannot change someone. Repeat – you cannot change someone
    • You’re not responsible for anyone else's feelings 
    • Don’t waste your time on people who don’t treat you how you deserve
    • Communication most often leads to discourse
    • You’re going to meet so many people in your life; some will come in and some will leave
    • Empathy and understanding will get you far but don’t be a people pleaser

    Work – 

    • If you’re first job ends up being your dream job, good for you. For others, we might end up all over the place before we find what drives us. No one’s path is wrong or right more than someone else's, as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other
    • If you're not learning or getting some sort of fullfilment from it, release it
    • Write thank you emails
    • NETWORK 

    Self – 

    • Remember how important it is to keep your identity separate – you can be a mother, employee, manager, sibling, daughter, podcaster, soccer player, but these things make up YOU; one role doesn’t’ solely define you nor limit you 
    • Don’t apologize for being you or speaking up for yourself
    • Enjoy life – appreciate the small moments, the silly the sad, the high and low, don’t fall into the rat race trap of where you need to be, where you should be, and instead realize you’re where you need to be
    • You are going to make mistakes, heck you might even fail, but there is value in those lessons. It’s not that failing is SUPER COOL, but we need to view failing less as the worst case scenario because it does happen, it happens often, and there is learning and self development that comes from it
    • Find hobbies and interests and EXPLORE them 
    • Prioritize your mental health, especially if you have past trauma
    • Don’t forget how much power you have. You have the strength to overcome any obstacle and drive to make your dreams come true. No one said it would be easy
    • Fall in love with yourself.


    I'll see you fabulous, beautiful people next week for an all new in-between!

  • In-Between: How to Love Yourself with Meagan Thomas

    This week's in-between brings special guest, Meagan Thomas of Meagan O Photography, to the pod with an episode that will quiet possibly move mountains. After leaving a toxic marriage of 10+ years, Meagan took an 100-day trip around the world in her own "Eat Pray Love"-type journey. Along the way she learned what it meant to truly love yourself, inside and out. Meagan offers incredible wisdom and guidance on how you can love yourself, no matter where you are in the self-love journey. We have the most enlightening, yet sensitive conversation around your relationship to yourself and why it's the most important you will ever prioritize. It's my hope to leave you inspired to love yourself a little harder and know your worth after this episode.

  • In-Between: Bedtime Procrastination

    Ever heard of the term revenge bedtime procrastination? It's not a new term, but it's one that Elizabeth is exploring as she's been burning the midnight oil a little too often lately. Revenge bedtime procrastination is  where you find yourself staying up late because you want to take back some sort of ownership of your day, when you feel like you didn't really have any time for yourself. This can come form working long hours, running around with a miles long to-do list…. We're talking about it in more detail on this week's in-between. We're also catching up on what's new, summer plans, and all the things in-between.

  • In-Between: New Wellness Habits

    We've had some guests on the past few weeks, but this Elizabeth is back in an all new solo episode. Of course we're catching up on all the life updates – Liz is starting the home buying process… again, we're talking a little bit about finances, and finally what's new in Liz's wellness routine. This includes new products and the reasons why, but also other strategies and tips she's doing to be the best version of herself. From combatting ADHD with manageable to-do lists or telling intrusive thoughts they have no place here, apparently you can teach an old dog new tricks and we can always learn new ways to make living easier on ourselves. Thanks for listening! And if you haven't done so already, be sure to follow Liz on all her social channels listed below.

  • In-Between: Motherhood & The Path Back to You w/ Lisa

    In Honor of Mother's Day this coming weekend, I'm bringing on one of my besties to talk about motherhood and finding yourself again. We talk about not recognizing yourself or your body – Lisa had two babes back-to-back, and how bad habits can lead to ignoring your needs. Being a mama bear is NOT an easy job, but if you're not showing up for yourself, how can you expect to do that for your family? We talk about it all on this week's In-between, from partner communication, balancing the ebb and flow of being a working mom – juggling the professional growth and motherhood, fighting against perfectionism, and finding your community.

    If you enjoyed today's episode and want to keep up with Lisa, follow her on Instagram @lisakaymh!
