101: My Spiritual Parisian Search For The “IT” Bag
18:13

Spirituality isn’t only found in shrines and silence. It can be found while searching for that coveted “luxury” item you can’t stop thinking about. Materialism gets such a bad rap.

077: 10 Reasons Why I'll Never Be French (and Why That's a Good Thing)
21:50

Sweet music wafting over the Seine, a balmy Parisian night, and a glass of Bordeaux. Why, merci, don’t mind if I do. Everyone should make a trip to the City of Light and Love, but not to see the sights (although they are gorgeous). “Doing Paris” is about more than finding a great cheese place – it’s about finding yourself. I went in with some serious preconceived notions about who I was and how much better I would be if I could be more continental (the oh-la-la kind of continental). In that respect, my journey to become French was a fiasco. I learned that I will never be French. What surprised me however, is why that’s a good thing. What surprised me even more is how we can all take a page out of the book of being French, without being French. Or definitely not French in my case. Still visit Paris though. Because…Paris.

11:21

Life can get hectic. There are deadlines to meet. Children to raise. A job to show up for. Business to run. Bills to pay. We live in a society that drives ambition and success over time and quality, which can make a woman afraid to stop for five seconds to appreciate a sunset, much less an entire day at the beach. Our feminine hearts crave everyday beauty, yet we don’t take the time or create the space to tend to this need. The result is stress, boredom, frustration and all sorts of other negative emotions that deprive us even more of experiencing the beauty of our everyday lives. In this podcast, Tonya turns to one of her sources of inspiration, France, to share a French feminine secret that guides how she lives her days and has helped her thrive in all areas of her life. It’s these small simple actions paired with awareness that will certainly elevate the quality of an ordinary day.

Maintaining positivity is something we all want, right?

While it is true that negativity does need to be cut out from your life, cutting people off completely shouldn't be your go-to solution.
