Katherine HarrisToday's interview is with an inspiring woman that's not afraid to speak her truth and learn from her current and previous perspectives. Katherine Harris is the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Refined Woman. In this podcast episode, you'll hear us discuss everything from entrepreneurship, relationship goals, family life, vulnerability, spirituality, health, and more! Kat Harris shares how her perspectives have evolved over time and with those changes, have come new experiences that have taught her to keep moving forward. Kat openly discusses the difficulties behind entrepreneurship and discouraging moments that lead to stress and self-doubt. The Refined Woman was created to inspire women through interviews and although they have a social mission, the journey has also come with obstacles, like many other businesses. During the interview, you'll hear Kat talk about what these challenges have looked like and what the journey of The Refined Woman has looked like. If you've felt discouraged as a result of life taking on new forms, you'll enjoy this inspirational conversation with Kat Harris. In her life, Kat has also learned to listen more to her emotional and mental needs, especially after encountering difficult physical circumstances that forced her to slow down and evaluate her workload and how she was incorporating 'balance' into her routine. In this episode, this is also one of the few times I discuss my TIA (transient stroke) and how that made me realize that regardless of age or lifestyle, no one is invincible and often, what we can't see or measure is what hurts us most. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Katherine Harris! Links to The Refined Woman and their respective social media pages are below.

El mensaje de #SábadoSabio en el podcast es sobre el rechazo y como esa experiencia nos deja algún aprendizaje. El rechazo nos puede causar mucho dolor, pero siempre deja lecciones. Si enfrentamos estas situaciones con el corazón abierto, podemos aprender mucho de nuestro interior y mejorar como individuo. Los invito a que exploren sus reacciones bajo estas circunstancias. Como emprendedora y mujer que comparte su voz con el público, he aprendido que mis mensajes no son para todas las personas y es totalmente normal que conforme pase el tiempo, mi audiencia se vuelva mas especifica. Este proceso de comprensión no fue fácil porque primero, tuve que reconocer que el rechazo existe. Al principio, no reaccionaba de una forma positiva cuando me enfrentaba con tal emoción. Lo mismo pasaba en mis relaciones personales, lo cual inspiró el mensaje del día de hoy. Las emociones y acciones que suceden como consecuencia del rechazo nos deja una perspectiva mas introspectiva que después podemos aplicar en nuestro futuro. En vez de reaccionar del dolor y lo que sentimos cuando las palabras o acciones de alguien mas nos hace sentir que no somos suficiente, reaccionamos de la comprensión. Pero lo mas importante es la comprensión y compasión que nos demostramos hacia nosotros mismos.

You Will Smile AgainI remember the first time I experienced disappointment when one of my ex-boyfriends and I decided to go our different ways. I knew I was too young and unaware to be in a serious relationship, but nevertheless, letting go of that first love was painful and hard to accept. The first thing I wondered was if I'd ever feel that kind of love again; I didn't know if I would smile again. It was the kind of love that makes you forget other people exist in the universe and the kind of love that makes you believe that anything is possible. It was young love, but it was pure love. It seems that there's a pattern in my life when I break up with an ex-boyfriend. I always make drastic changes the moment I realize I wasn't living up to my full potential when I was in the relationship. Years ago, I decided to move and study abroad, which led to a plethora of new lifelong friendships and wonderful experiences. I went out most days of the week and was usually the first one to arrive at every social gathering I was invited to because I craved human interaction more than anything. When my ex-boyfriend and I dated, I rarely went out or experienced new things since we fell into a routine rather quickly. Naturally, this new chapter felt exciting because of the fun stories that came along with every exhilarating event. As time passed, I found myself smiling more often and soon, the feeling of heartbreak and confusion started to feel like a distant memory. When you're going through something painful, it's not unusual to wonder if those sad feelings will stay there permanently. They're so profound that it seems impossible that they'll pass through, like everything else in life. Those emotions begin to identify with the unrealistic thoughts that you may never smile again, but you will. I did smile again and not because I was happy to have gotten over my ex-boyfriend, but because the life I began to live later on was a reminder that joy could still be found in unexpected places. Today's Words of Wisdom Wednesday is to remind you of that fact: you will smile again. Don't force it or fake happiness because eventually, the true emotions will surface. Rather, have unwavering faith that your life will begin to unfold as it should and that way, when those new fulfilling experiences show up, you'll not only genuinely smile because they're happening, but you'll also thank the universe for showing you that everything is temporary. Enjoy the new reasons why you're smiling and be grateful that your pain didn't last a lifetime.

Me tomó años empezar este podcast porque pensaba que yo y todo lo que me rodeaba tenía que estar "perfecto" antes de tomar acción. El episodio de hoy es para recordarles que el perfeccionismo no existe y hasta que lo aceptemos, no podemos hacer las cosas que nos hacen feliz. El perfeccionismo también evita que seamos honestos con el mundo cuando decidimos solo enseñar lo "bonito" o "positivo." Al ser deshonestos con otros, estamos alentando la falsedad con nosotros mismos, lo cual evita que vivamos con plenitud. Empezar fue lo que hizo que poco a poco, mis métodos y estrategias fueran mejorando. Y al ver que el perfeccionismo nunca iba existir, fue que mi mentalidad empezó a cambiar. El miedo empezó a disminuir y las opiniones de los demás no tuvieron tanto significado porque la idea del perfeccionismo dejó de tener relevancia. Me di cuenta que yo jamás iba obtener la perfección y eso incluía que tampoco iba poder satisfacer a todo mundo. Este descubrimiento fue un proceso bastante difícil pero al final, valió la pena porque pude enfocarme más en las cosas que me hacían feliz. Hoy quiero inspirarlos a que piensen en que parte de sus vidas están atados a la idea del perfeccionismo. Tal vez están en una relación porque tienen miedo del "que dirán" al salir de esa situación. ¿En que manera queremos dar la impresión a la sociedad de que somos perfectas? Llegar a estas conclusiones toma mucho auto conocimiento y humildad, pero vale la pena porque al desarrollar este aspecto de nosotras es que podemos evolucionar y mejorar como individuos.

Bask in LaughterIt's only when "the end" knocks on our door that we reflect on the moments that actually mattered. Much of the conflict we experience with other individuals stems from misunderstandings and lack of clarity, but rarely stems from meaningful things that we should forever hold onto. However, this doesn't stop us from hurting one another and making circumstances a much bigger deal than they need to be. We do this with friends, family members, loved ones, partners, strangers, and yet a fundamental aspect is often overlooked: in the end, it doesn't really matter. Today's Words of Wisdom episode is about the importance of basking in laughter because joy  is underrated until you no longer have access to it. Appreciate the moments that you laugh so hard your stomach hurts and remember that nothing is permanent. Focus on your level of self-awareness so that the next time you're sitting in front of someone you love, you choose to rejoice instead of looking for what's missing. One of the lessons my past relationships has left behind was due to conflict arising. When I realized I couldn't remember why most arguments began, I instantly noticed that they probably didn't matter to begin with. However, when I savored the joyful moments, I immediately wished I would have been able to freeze time. I share this lesson with all of you because it's important to realize what we could do more of, and not only reflect on things to avoid. Bask in laughter because you never know the turns life takes and how much time we have left. This message is not suggesting you ignore other subject matters that are important to you, but pick your battles wisely. As life goes on, we don't wish we would have spent more time fighting. In fact, time and the inevitable "end" serves to remind us that since nothing is guaranteed, we have a choice to shift our focus, and ultimately our energy. Where focus goes, energy flows.

The Ugly is Trying to Tell You SomethingToday's Words of Wisdom Wednesday podcast episode is about the not-so-nice sides of us because there are tremendous lessons waiting to be uncovered behind every dark moment. One of the greatest lessons I've learned as a result of conflict and my reactions was that my trigger points often had less to do with the other individual and more to do with unresolved childhood wounds. Every couple fights or has a disagreement, but how you get your point across or react in those circumstances matters the most. Often times, our impulsive reactions are trying to tell us something about our own insecurities or unresolved childhood wounds. But in the moment, and because of ego, it can be hard to see the signs and behavioral patterns. Looking back on previous relationships and the lessons my ex boyfriends left behind, I can see how I attracted similar scenarios because things within me needed healing and a change in behavior. It wasn't until I was ready to assimilate these truths that I could let go of broken relationships and unsatisfactory outcomes. I had to first become inquisitive about myself in order to address the things that needed attention. I became curious as to why I cried, yelled, or became angry under certain circumstances. We've all been there - all of us are guilty of saying or doing things that we later regret. In particular, words have the ability to trigger negative emotions that I then display on the outside. What is said to me and the manner in which it's done has the ability to bring up childhood memories that trigger feelings of isolation and negligence. These emotions manifested in an angry side of me when I was in relationships because not only was I unaware of how to address these circumstances, I was unaware of the cause of the problem. The "ugly" sides of us are not what define us, but rather what is trying to teach us something. Today, I'm better equipped to react because I'm aware of my trigger points. Many times, I observe them taking place as if everything were in slow motion because I no longer identify as being part of the problem. I now see scenarios objectively and position myself as a solution so that if the "ugly" were to try and make an appearance, I can graciously turn that moment into an opportunity for growth, rather than conflict.

Issues arise in every relationship and sometimes, couples choose to spend time apart. What I've learned through this is that when that happens, many times couples don't grow together because growth requires cohesiveness. In this episode of Words of Wisdom Wednesday, I discuss an example in my life where an ex and I went separate ways and when he tried to reconcile, I felt nothing because I had evolved into a different human being. We no longer had things in common and struggled to maintain a conversation because our interests had evolved as well.

During the time we were apart, I matured in a different way than he did and physical attraction was no longer enough. I needed more from the relationship but that "more" represented a need to rebuild on something that no longer existed. Fires can't last forever if there's nothing to burn. Eventually the material that allows the fire to exist ceases, which is what happened to attraction and chemistry between two people. If both do not prioritize growing as individuals and make an effort to build upon a bond, it's likely you'll grow apart.

This week's podcast episode was created in preparation for the launch of my upcoming book about the lessons my exes left behind. Relationships are where we most grow and if we choose to find the light, lessons rise to the surface showing us that no experience is a waste of time. The lessons my ex boyfriends left are a result of the dynamic within the relationship, not the actual individual. While we're able to learn from watching other people's behavior, I decided to focus on my personal feelings, emotions, and reactions. As I became inquisitive about why certain scenarios caused pain and grief, I slowly began to uncover the root of these emotions, leading me down an endless path of self-discovery.

You'll also hear her share the lessons she absorbed as a result of her divorce and the dynamics between her and her ex-husband that encouraged her to embrace her voice and spread this message. Siggy's divorce led her to her now husband and love of her life, Mark Flicker, whom she discusses in detail. Our conversation is full of valuable insight that can be applied to those currently in relationships or those open to finding their ideal partner one day. Siggy also shares her perspective regarding solitude and how this can be a positive contributor when you're finally ready to engage in a romantic relationship. She also highlights the importance of having passion between two people and how this aspect allowed her and her husband to continue building their life together. When she married Mark, he was not emotionally or financially able to take on the responsibility of having a spouse. And despite people's efforts to discourage their union, Siggy Flicker chose to follow her intuition and start a new chapter of her life with this man. She says that "it was one of the best decisions she ever made." Siggy encourages women to make choices based on their own intuitive feelings instead of external sources that have the ability to steer us in the wrong direction. In the new season of RHONJ, Siggy discusses how this time, the drama comes to her front door. In the past, Siggy is known to be the intermediary between conflict as she tried to reunite old friendships. However, this season is different because instead of being targeted as the peacemaker, she is targeted as a source of conflict. During our conversation, she goes into detail about how she's learned to avoid and eliminate toxicity in her life, including people. We go into why this is important and pivotal for your success as you encounter different chapters in life and set sights on new goals. The interview with Siggy Flicker is one that will not only inspire you, but also make you laugh. Siggy's no BS approach to life and circumstances provide wisdom that can be applied to many different age groups and relationships.
