What’s your one wish for the holiday season? Ryan is helping you (and Andrea!) figure out exactly what it is and how to get it….
The goal today was to chat about aspects of life from the past that we should NOT let go of, but since the cohost was Little Mama, so much more was discussed!
In this week’s podcast Andrea and Ryan talk about the standard we hold ourselves and our loved ones to and how to know if it’s right.
Sometimes I feel discouraged. Sometimes I feel sad. When the reality of my life seems very different from the way my heart knows it should be, it makes me feel “down”….
In this week’s podcast, Andrea and Tara discuss how some of us struggle with always doing things that make us unhappy, even though we don’t actually need to be doing them in the first place! They get to the bottom of WHY and HOW TO CHANGE IT!

If my own needs are not taken care, I’m not half as good of a friend, spouse, or daughter to anyone else. I’m constantly driving myself crazy thinking about people in my life not accepting that it doesn’t work for me to attend their events.
