The Half Leap
We have all heard someone say they “took a leap of faith” when referring to stepping out of their comfort zone to pursue something that is perceived to be a little riskier. However, more often than not in life, the things that we believe to be safe still come with uncertainty. Our stable jobs? Could be jeopardized in situations such as a pandemic. Our happy relationships? Could be challenged by unforeseen circumstances. So, in this episode, Phoenix will be sharing her experience with taking “half leaps” and explaining why if she is going to lose her sense of security, she is going to do it on her own terms.

Wanting As A Process
When you’ve gone through struggles in your life, it becomes clear what you don’t want. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always translate when it comes to deciding what you do want.

You feel lost, only focusing on what is directly in front of you, leading to frustration or even disillusionment.

Can You Pay My Bills
A healthy relationship requires communication, compromise, and mutual respect. While some people might feel fine with a monetary expression of affection, some might not.

So, why power through when you’re not really into it? In this episode, Phoenix is joined by Justice to discuss relationships and all of the wild things that come along with being in the dating scene.

Affirm What's On The Way
Most of us are focused on all the things we have yet to achieve in life. However, only focusing on your to-do list or failures can take a serious toll on your emotional well-being.

Afraid of My Time
Life is all about timing. It’s the right time or it’s the wrong time - timing really is everything.

So, in this episode, Phoenix will share why she is leaning into this mindset now, explaining why she is no longer afraid of her timing.For show notes, resources, and more, visit:

Why Are You Available
Why do people always ask single men and women why they’re single? Is it supposed to be a compliment? Are they digging for something deeper? Most of the time, people are single not because there is something wrong with them but because they haven’t found the right situation for them. They haven’t found that person that matches their energy and lifestyle. It’s the same with our careers, friendships, etc. If things don’t align, then it simply isn’t the right time. So, in this episode, Phoenix will be sharing her experience with this and delving deep into why availability does not mean there is something lacking.

What I Know Is

No As A Road to Yes
It can sometimes feel as though the ability to say “no” is absent in some people. People might look at you differently, you might upset your friend or you may even disappoint someone if you decline to do what they are asking of you.

Wanna See U Win

Not Your Audience
With resistance comes struggle. You can either continue to fight if you feel as though the reward will be beneficial enough to struggle through the resistance, or you can decide to stop the fight and move on. Phoenix believes the same is true for knowing your people, knowing your truth, or knowing your audience. If you have to struggle to be with someone, is it worth it to be with them? It’s time to start understanding your audience and acknowledging when you’re not the right audience for someone else.
