Life is Only Your Experience | How to not miss out on your life

Season 2 Episode 9


Sometimes we finish recording, set the mics down and THEN have the conversation of a lifetime. This audio-only episode is one of those "real talks" that we remembered to capture...

Life is only your experience of life; if you miss the experience, you miss your life. Today we discuss how our children will remember us, different ways to cultivate our inner lives, and how to value our experience as much as everyone else's. Layne has an experience that hugely impacts how she sees her own body. Jerry Seinfeld drops words of wisdom on a different podcast and we talk about it on this one (and explain why comedians are modern day prophets). We explore what children can teach us about mindfulness and how to be present in the here and now. We learn a lesson about trusting ourselves from the time Jess' husband fell asleep in an important meeting and how to reframe the stories we are telling about our lives.

Then we give book recommendations! The best children's books, some of our favorite books and a few current reads.
