Geeking Out Nikki geeks out on Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. + how LL Cool J (* swoon!) and P Diddy find out surprising things in their histories that make us think about what it means to be a family and just how much is passed down to us genetically, without us even knowing. Melissa geeks out about a TED talk that proves money CAN buy happiness + why that's the coolest news she's heard all week.
Pay Attention We're paying attention this week to the act of RECEIVING. Our own lives were completely changed by the book The Power of Receiving by Amanda Owen. ( If you're listening, Amanda, we'd love to have you on the show!) We talk about the fight over the check at lunch and how we deflect compliments and how women, too often, get stuck in DOING mode that we subconsciously forget that we can be strong + independent AND ALSO taken care of.
Last Best Last best this episode is all about celebrations-- one when someone signed up for Nikki's retreat and one where Melissa's friend Kimmy takes one more trip around the sun.
