WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast — lessons in moving forward fearlessly and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk: the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more - and walk away from each episode with actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. New episodes every other Tuesday. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

No matter what, whether you celebrate or you don't celebrate, you're probably getting a lot of messages around thankfulness and gratitude right now. In today's special Thursday episode, we're talking how to frame this day and this time of year as something a little bit different than in the past:

  • Why you might feel a sense of burnout, anxiety, or longing the day of an emotion/expression-focused holiday like Thanksgiving or Valentine's Day
  • How to cultivate a gratitude practice in as little as 1-2 minutes without going overboard or being unrealistic
  • Katie's theory on bringing more of a New Year's Eve vibe to the day we're supposed to focus on "giving thanks"
  • ...and more!

America is more obsessed with fitness than we've ever been...but somehow the unhealthiest we've ever been. How is this so, and how we can break the barriers that Fitness + Wellness Culture tells us we must subscribe to?

Natalia Mahlman Petrzela, the author of FIT NATION, is here to answer these questions and more. For her, fitness is, as her new book describes, "a social justice issue. She argues that the fight for a more equitable exercise culture will be won only by revolutionizing fitness culture at its core, making it truly inclusive for all bodies in a way it has never been."

Today's guest is Kara Cutruzzula: a writer and editor, a playwright, a musical theater lyricist, and the author of both DO IT FOR YOURSELF and DO IT TODAY: An Encouragement Journal. Her long-running must-read newsletter Brass Ring Daily, about work and creativity, has been featured in Lifehacker, Inc., TIME, and Vanity Fair — which called it "a life coach in your inbox".

Today we talk about:

  1. Kara's specific advice for actually "enjoying the process" and "trusting the journey" in your work and life

  2. How/why we diminish our own excitement about projects and milestones, and how to keep some of that joy for yourself

  3. Why Katie sometimes feels like she experiences an existential crisis when she hits her goals, and Kara's way of countering that feeling

  4. Finding your collaborators and champions, how to reach out to people whose work you admire when it feels scary to — plus Kara's exact "in" line — and where the heck to actually find them

  5. Kara's unique take on why hearing NO is sometimes the best thing you can hear

  6. The reason Kara doesn't actually write with a reader in mind, and how it's helped the longevity of Brass Ring Daily

and more!

This time of year can bring up a lot of negative cultural messaging — and therefore negative self-talk — around bodies and working out, and while things are changing for (hopefully) the better, we’ve GOT to know where we’ve come from and how we got here so that we can get to where we truly want to be. 

Danielle Friedman is an award-winning journalist and author of the critically acclaimed cultural history of women's fitness Let's Get Physical: How Women Discovered Exercise and Reshaped the World. 

From the revolutionary and sometimes radical beginnings to the intermingling of diet culture and fitness, to fitness’s place in the feminist movement, to the history of fitness shaping our self-perception — hopefully, this episode can help you get curious about movement’s place in your own life, what’s informed that, and where you’re going from here.

 

(This is also the season finale — we're taking a short summer vacay. See you in a couple months!)

When life gets stressful, do you go MIA?

True love, real love, "the one"... the way people describe love is pretty and aspirational, but ultimately super vague. What does love actually feel like? How do you know it's love and not just old habits or displaced desires? Is love even a noun at all, or is it an action?

And HOW THE HECK do you separate your own self-love from the love you experience from someone else — especially if that person fills many roles in your life?

In this episode, I talk to partners in life, love, and business, Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison and Holley Kholi-Murchison (also two of my favorite humans on the planet). These two are each true forces of natures as individuals — so when their powers combine, they're unstoppable: from their work together as co-founders of HOLI. Brands to their upcoming four-week immersive Skillshare course, Build the Next Chapter of Your Career, to the way they champion each other professionally AND personally, they're such strong models of how to truly be in relationship and partnership with someone else....and as you'll hear in this episode, also honor yourself and your own desires.

If you're been re-evaluating and reflecting about the way you relate to love lately, this episode is for you. It's filled with deep truths, big laughs, and — yes, LOTS of love. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

~

ABOUT HOLLEY

Holley M. Kholi-Murchison is an artist and cultural geographer began her career more than 15 years ago. She is not just a writer, a strategy consultant, an entrepreneur, a speaker—she is an explorer and a trailblazer, forging her own path and teaching others to do the same.

ABOUT KHOLI

Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison, also known as Kholi, is a writer, editor, critical thinker, entrepreneur, and growth strategist. She’s been helping individuals and organizations realize their visions for more than a decade.

Whether it's NEW YEAR NEW YOU season or not, setting goals and benchmarks when you're already feeling burnt out feels unrealistic at best, cruel at worst.

If you're anything like me, you're starting the year feeling more than "meh." You might WANT to set plans into motion, but also might be feeling too defeated to even start.

I'm with you. As someone who actually DOES want to look forward with excitement and possibility (and yes, maybe some goals too), I've begun to ask myself: How the heck do you start setting goals when you feel like you've got so much recent "proof" that reaching your goals isn't really up to you in the first place?
