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 of the WANTcast, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch will unpack 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. You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. This isn't your typical self-help podcast: the WANTcast is committed to exploring the high highs, low lows, and every in-between moment of life. You'll walk away from each episode with hyper-actionable steps to shift your self talk both generally and situationally, as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough. Self-talk isn't good or bad, it's INFORMATION - and the WANTcast is all about quieting the noise so you can extract that information from any situation. We'll dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're MEANT to be. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

How does your self-talk hold you back from taking action in your life? How does that affect the world around you? In this episode, we talk about why shifting your self-talk is way more than just about self-help, why it isn’t just about changing your OWN life, and how to get yourself off of the sidelines and 'into the arena.'

You know to call someone when you miss them. But what if what you miss isn’t a person that's able to be dialed on the phone - or an event that's about to be rescheduled? What do you do when it's the smaller or less-specific things you miss, like sitting outside with a cup of coffee or going on a vacation (*any* vacation)?

In this episode of the WANTcast, we discuss the concept of what Katie calls experiential longing: the feeling of missing experiences, routines, habits, and situations.

Leadership consultant, attorney, speaker, author and photographer Karen Walrond is the kind of person you just want to know. You just want to soak in some of her light and magic, because maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can use it to help make your own. As someone who has worked extensively with Dove Real Beauty and Brene Brown, Karen is in the business of helping you shine your unique light, no matter WHAT the world throws at you or tells you you need to be.

In this episode we talk about grief and the "phases we go through when bad things happen," holding space for each other in a way that feels true, the intersection of JOY and ACTIVISM, how Karen uses her practice of Positive Psychology to cultivate resilience within her clients and her self, and how to gracefully "not know."

Making friends as an adult is hard. And keeping those friendships strong when life gets in the way? Even harder.

Life is always going to keep handing you (or your friend) full schedules. Geography and time zones – or sleep schedules – won’t always be on your side. The world will throw you curveballs you NEED to answer to, whether you like it or not. Here’s how to stay connected when life gets in the way...however it is that life gets in the way.

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been asked many times what I “think of all this,” how people can take care of themselves during the Coronavirus pandemic, and what my general take is on living day-to-day life when it looks and feels anything but normal. Instead of posting a million times to Instagram or spreading my responses out over emails, texts, DMs, and social media updates, I figured it might be useful for you if I recorded this – for the sponges who need help with sponging, for the people who are struggling finding normalcy and motivation at home, and everyone who’s dealing with a little bit of everything.

We’ve all heard the cliché that “you need to love yourself before you can love others.” But that's only half the story.

 

It's time to reclaim the word “single” and redefining it not as something negative or lacking, but as a state-of-mind you carry with you, whether you’re in a relationship or not.
