EP. 74 // What's My 'Thing'? REVISITED

Almost seventy episodes ago, Amanda + Kristin launched episode 8 of this podcast exploring the question WHAT’S MY ‘THING’?. With this season’s theme of GROWTH, the girls thought it was appropriate to revisit this topic and talk about how their perspectives have evolved, inspired by the recent conversation they had with Austin Kleon about his new book Keep Going.

SUMMARY //

In this episode, A + K revisit the topic of finding & identifying your ‘THING’. After talking with the wonderful Austin Kleon about his new book Keep Going, A & K felt the need to do a bit of a corrective to what the original episode on this was about.

The girls talk about how this podcast has become both of their ‘thing’, but only through commitment, collaboration, and a consistent weekly routine.

‘Take the edge off’ is something the girls also discuss as an important aspect of discovering your things. When the stakes are high any and all decisions regarding your ‘thing’ become big risks, which can intern disrupt your creativity and corrupt your inspiration.

Finally, the girls have a laugh as Kristin describes the ever-changing nature of life & finding a ‘thing’ with this phrase: “Here it is, and there it went.”

If there's one question we crafty ass females often ask ourselves + are often in search of the answer to, it's: WHAT'S MY THING?  We hold - at a higher importance than most - this notion of doing in this world what we feel we were meant to do. ENTER: this episode...

SUMMARY //

Amanda + Kristin explore what it means to have a 'thing', how you can go about finding a 'thing', what we think tapping into your 'thing' should feel like in your body, & other bits + pieces surrounding this question.

NOTE FROM AMANDA: Guys, THIS is my favorite episode we've recorded so far! This question rules my life + there are so many good nuggets that got me & will get you thinking.  There has never been a time in history where there's more opportunity to grow from your 'thing' than now,  but at the same time, EVERYBODY'S trying to do that so it makes it more challenging to get it going. Uh! Amen to that, right?! This episode addresses all this and more + I hope it's one of your faves too! xoxo
