TLS #83: Personal Growth in a Relationship & Changing Unhelpful Drinking Patterns with Tara Bliss

TheLivelyShowwithTaraBliss

Today’s episode of The Lively Show is extremely powerful, insightful, and so soothing that I have a feeling many people will feel like they’ve had a massage after listening to the show!

I’m talking with Australian life coach, Tara Bliss, about her journey from using drinking and drugs to be the best version of herself, to finding a more peaceful approach to living her life.

Tara details her experiences and advice for others who struggle with this area of life in her book, High: A Party Girl’s Guide To Peace.

(Note: The practices Tara recommends are geared towards those with milder relationships to alcohol and drugs, not specifically serious addictions.)

This episode is perfect for anyone who would like to: hear an honest and inspiring personal story, learn about new ways to approach drinking peacefully, or learn how to connect with a partner who may not be on the same personal growth path as themselves.

TheLivelyShowwithJessicaTurner

Today on the Lively Show, I’m speaking with Jessica Turner of the blog, The Mom Creative, and author of The Fringe Hours.

As a busy wife, mom (of three little ones), and blogger with a full-time job, Jessica is often asked how she makes time for self care and several passions amidst her busy schedule. The Fringe Hours became an answer to this question from Jessica’s experience as well as the lives of 2,000 other women across the country.

In the show, we’ll discuss what the fringe hours are, how we can find them in our own schedules, and how to overcome a few core limiting beliefs that can prevent us from prioritizing self-care.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is feeling burned out, empty from a lack of self-care, or frustrated by the concept of finding balance in their lives.

TLS #69: Living With Painful Sex with Jesse Coulter

TheLivelyShowWithJesseCoulter

* This episode includes “adult content” and may not be appropriate for young audiences. *

Today’s episode of The Lively Show is touching on a topic we haven’t covered yet: sex.

Painful sex, to be specific.

Jesse Coulter is a wife, mother, blogger (JesseCoulter.net), full-time marketing coordinator, and co-founder of the Austin-based custom furniture company, Builtwell.

In today’s show, Jesse is opening up about her struggle with painful sex throughout much of her adult life.

Jesse isn’t sharing as an “expert” or someone who “has it all figured out.” She’s simply sharing her heart and still unfolding story with us – so that those who may also be struggling with a similar journey may feel a little less alone.

I deeply hope that this show reaches those who may benefit from Jesse’s bravery. This topic is commonly kept secret, increasing the sense of isolation for those struggling with similar issues.

This episode is for anyone who struggles with painful sex, or for anyone who would like to learn more about what challenges this issue can present for those who face it.
