Geeking Out Nikki is geeking out on all that Spring brings: light, fresh food as she plans menus for the women on April's retreat, wearing dresses, long walks + feeling the love. Melissa is geeking out on her love for place cards, how they complete the decor for an event but also how they remind people that they are welcome + have a seat at the table both literally + figuratively. Nikki + Melissa also announce that they've formed a company with lots of good stuff in store, Feel Good Enterprises, LLC
Pay Attention This week we look at where to find glimmers of hope when life serves up challenges. Melissa + Nikki share challenges they've faced + how they have found the magic in the mess including Melissa's divorce, Nikki's house fire, each of them dealing with loss + how they perceive the current state of the world. For possibly the 2nd time Brene Brown's work on vulnerability is discussed + how when we numb our pain we end up numbing our joy. Melissa + Nikki conclude that it is possible to hold both radical hope along with pain + sadness. It's not either or, it's not denial, it's being REAL + of course, paying attention.
Last Best Melissa talks about the last best song she heard Careless Whisper by Wham!, she + Nikki get so excited they start to sing. Nikki talks about how much she loves Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares.
