Conflict is going to happen in a healthy relationship. And more often than not, conflict starts with something laughably small - from doing dishes, to making food, and even how to decoratively light a podcast. But underneath the menial cause of conflict always lies a much deeper need that isn’t being met. I’m joined on this episode by my partner, K…

Fear is basically uncertainty. It’s having no idea or proof of our own capability to handle the unknown. So how do we learn to overcome fear and simply trust ourselves that we have everything we need to handle any uncertainty? That’s where coaches like Lisa Carpenter come in. Lisa Carpenter is a remarkable coach who has changed my life in so many w…

When we overthink our emotions, we under-feel them. This can have major consequences on both our relationships and our personal growth. Too often when faced with a negative or traumatic emotion, we intellectualize how we are feeling instead of allowing ourselves to accept, allow and feel it. And by suppressing the bad stuff, we fail to fully learn …

It’s time to start fighting unreasonably hard for the life you want. I want this first episode of the New Year to remind you that waiting for things to feel easier, clearer and less scary are preventing you from taking the first messy, but critical steps in the right direction. Even if you don’t have the end figured out, sitting around hoping every…

The most dangerous thing you can possess is self worth. Because from self worth comes freedom and empowerment to choose exactly what and who you want in your life. But because we live in a world that teaches us to look outside of ourselves for validation, accolades, approval, self-worth can be a major struggle. But when we stop auditioning for the …

It’s tempting to want to play the role of “superhero” in a relationship - the guardian, the savior, the teacher, or the protector. But over-prioritizing their needs over your own often has a villainous effect on a healthy relationship. Because if all of your focus is on their safety, wellbeing and nurturing, you then neglect what’s more important -…

I'm practicing something that's very uncomfortable for me: asking for what I need. Maybe you can relate. It's scary, because when we ask for something, it can bring up all kinds of issues for us. Old stories from childhood. Risk of judgement, rejection or abandonment. It's something I've spent most of my life avoiding, and instead convincing myself…

The only thing more painful than brutal honesty is dishonesty. If we’re holding in our true emotions to avoid tough conversations, judgment or rocking the boat, we’re actually hurting our relationship more than helping it. Expressing how you are feeling is where trust is built and where relationships thrive. If you’re not being truly honest in your…

When it comes to confidence, we can too often sit in a state of waiting - waiting for something to magically happen or shift to finally get over our fears and anxieties.

When we try to force a relationship with someone who isn’t a good fit, it’s time to do some serious work on our own self-worth. People often end up “chasing” the same type over and over, hoping they’ll uncover something about ourselves we just aren’t seeing. But to have a healthy relationship with someone else, we first need to recognize our own in…

Trust is like the oxygen that fans the flames of a relationship. When you can fully grant trust to your partner, it allows each of you to fill each other’s needs within the relationship. Not trusting your partner is often not a sign of their untrustworthiness, rather lack of trust in yourself - which is where the work then needs to happen. Today we…

Usually when we think about hormones, we think about mood swings, bloating and weight gain.

And knowing how to control our hormones means having much gr…

This short episode covers two very fundamental questions I ask my self routinely that have completely changed my relationships and the way I communicate: Am I acting out of fear or out of love right now? How can I show up in a way right now that I’ll be proud of 5, 10, 20 years from now? Both questions likely require a lot of unpacking, vulnerabili…

In this episode of Room to Grow, Joanie and Curtis explore ideas around the emotional side of learning and how it impacts students in their academic growth. Because we and our students are humans - and humans have emotions - it is impossible to learn without a connection to our emotions, whether those emotions are positive or negative. As educators…

Like the saying “once burned, twice shy,” a healthy relationship can be hard to trust if you’ve been burned in the past. The best relationships might even bring up more resistance because they can feel like unfamiliar territory. But one of the best things we can do to heal from past scars is to lay our defenses down and be open to allowing love and…

Fear of change can often leave us dangling on the cusp of our own massive success. Consequently, instead of unleashing our full power to the universe, we lock ourselves in the subconscious “safe zone” of the things, relationships, situations and habits that minimize our power. Change is indeed scary as hell. But stepping into your full power requir…

“How do I know if they’re the one?” I get this question more often than I can tell you. But truthfully, I don’t believe there’s only one person in the world for us. And trying to fit that perfect someone into your preconceived love story presents a number of challenges and very, very often keeps people in bad relationships longer than they should b…

Not everyone deserves a place in your heart. But closing ourselves off isn’t the answer either. Boundaries can become fortresses. And then we wonder why no one can ever break through. Yet it’s not always about setting every boundary under the sun with each individual person in your life. It’s about showing up as the person you want to be, and watch…

The journey to self-love begins with liking yourself first. But doing this work can present one of the biggest battles we all face as humans: loneliness. It's one of the things that keeps us in mediocre relationships far past their expiry dates, because being in the company of another seems, in theory, better than being alone. But relationships wit…

There are more “labels” than ever floating around out there, especially in the areas of self-help and personal development. Occasionally, labels can be helpful by helping us to feel less isolated and alone in our “weirdness.” But identifying too strongly with any particular label has the potential to do more harm than good. They prevent us from vie…

Can people change? The short answer is yes. The real question is: can we have the compassion to see one’s (including our own) potential, versus forever holding them to past behaviors and actions? Honouring one’s potential to change doesn’t mean erasing the wounds of the past. But there’s incredible healing power in forgiveness and in recognizing on…
