Description

A podcast dedicated to helping Black Millennial women become their best selves.

Episode Date
Finding Yourself Through Change: Embracing the Next Chapter in your Life, Seasonal Depression, Break Ups, and Radically Showing Up for Yourself
1097

Tyra sits down and gets real about her break up, seasonal depression, and moving away from home and how it has all affected her life. She spent the entire month of December, at home,  reflecting on how her life has been going since this major life change. She weighs the good along with the bad, and we speak on moving forward and learn to make promises to ourselves and to always put ourselves first because you cannot give from an empty cup. In order for our cups to overflow, we have to show ourselves love, and sometimes that's hard when your life suddenly changes.


This week’s Affirmation is “ My fears of tomorrow are melting away”

The Biggest Takeaways from Today’s Episode on Change:

  • Putting yourself first fills your cup. You cannot give from an empty cup, the goal is to give from your saucer.
  • God says trouble doesn't last always.. Matthew 6:34. So do not worry on tomorrow, because change is inevitable.

Finding Luxury in Daily Life with Bria Black
1911

Today we have a very special guest on the podcast! My best friend and Luxury Lifestyle Advocate, Bria Black! In today’s episode we are chatting it up about all of the luxury upgrades we have made in our lives! Honestly, if it weren’t for Bria, I wouldn’t know what the true definition of “Luxury” is. And, let me tell y’all, since she’s opened my eyes to this world of luxury living on my own terms, I've been so much happier with daily life. I get excited to get up in the morning to do little things for myself throughout the day to show myself some love.

This week’s Affirmation is “ I am a confident black woman that deserves all the good things coming my way.”

I believe Luxury is truly a state of mind, because it all depends on what you think is luxurious and what makes you feel comfortable. So, Bria dives into what made her want to start living a more luxurious lifestyle, how she’s keeping up with this new lifestyle, and how we can all find daily luxuries in our lives.

The Biggest Takeaways from Today’s Episode on Daily Luxuries are:

  • Do a Self Assessment. What do you love about your life now? What makes you happy in your daily life? How can you take it up a notch?
  • Think to yourself “can I make this thing I love a daily practice?
  • Learn what “Daily Luxuries” mean to YOU.

Finding Comfort in Discomfort
1255

Let me come right out and say it, most of my life I have HATED change. Yes, hate is a strong word, but I resisted change and uncomfortable situations so much that it felt like the “right” thing to do… I slowly began to realize, accepting change and finding comfort in uncomfortable situations was the key to growth.

In today’s episode, Tyra is taking a deep dive into discomfort and Comfort Zones. Because as Billy Alsbrooks said, Your comfort zone is where dreams go to die. Life begins on the other end of your comfort zone, and if you truly want to live life.. We have to lay our comfort zone to rest.

Yea sure, life happens, things happen, and we have to learn how to roll with the punches. Even though that's a bit cliche. It's 1000% true. This week’s Affirmation is “ I am at peace even when life gets crazy."

Tyra takes some time to explain ways you can learn to master discomfort and truly start living without being a slave to the unknown world of being uncomfortable. Take a listen!

The Biggest Takeaways from Today’s Episode on Mastering Discomfort:

  • START! .. whatever it is.
  • Don’t quit even when it gets tough.
  • Continue to push past your comfort zone.
  • Embrace the “suckiness”
  • Surround yourself with like minded people
  • Celebrate your small successes and progress!
