077: What’s New in Work, Love + Life in Austin with Aimee + Ellie
We’ve taken a break from our podcast lately — not because we don’t love it, but because we realized we just needed to pull back on some aspects of the business to make room for all the change that’s been swirling around us.
So today we’re back, and we’re sharing a deep-dive conversation about what’s been going on in the business, in our relationships, and in our own personal growth as we navigate our transition to Austin together.
As we let the conversation flow, here’s a theme that kept arising:
We are both deeply committed to practicing what we preach, and one of the most powerful opportunities we get to do that is when things are not working for us.
It’s when we get stuck in “obligation” energy that we have the chance to reconnect authentically with a desire-led life.
It’s when our most intimate relationships are experiencing their biggest challenges that we get to lean into radical honesty, sisterhood, and surrender.
It’s when life doesn’t meet our expectations that we have the choice to either stay stuck in judgment and resentment… or move into looking at all the patterns that aren’t serving us and find the true medicine.
Choosing desire as a way of life is not easy. It will bring up ALL your shit and bring you to your knees.
And as we keep finding: it’s also the key to unlocking a quality of freedom and joy in life that we couldn’t even have imagined.
So listen in and catch up with us today!
