WANTcast 080: Becoming the First Best Version of Yourself (Season Four Finale)

WANTcast 080: Becoming the First Best Version of Yourself (Season Four Finale)

the WANTcast

In today’s SEASON FINALE, two listeners ask about finding confidence and self-love again, and finding positive communities when all people want to do is bond over negativity. There’s a common theme in the answers to both of these – and it has to do with how you become the first-best version of yourself instead of the second-best version of someone else.

**This is the SEASON FINALE of Season 4! Thank you so much for helping the WANTcast grow and evolve over the last almost-four years. We’ll be taking a break over the summer and coming back stronger than ever in August with Season Five.**

WANTcast 079: Should I Follow My Calling And Change Everything?

WANTcast 079: Should I Follow My Calling And Change Everything?

the WANTcast

What happens when you feel a “calling” to change things up…but everything is going just fine? What if you’re doubting a choice is the right one to make…but you don’t have proof as to why?

In today’s episode of the WANTcast, a listener asks if she should follow her gut and change everything, even though life is great. I share some insight into my move to NYC after a lifetime in Los Angeles, plus a few big, get-honest-with-yourself questions to ask yourself when facing major change of ANY kind.

WANTcast 078: Keep Going Or Shut Down with Jennifer Pastiloff

WANTcast 078: Keep Going Or Shut Down with Jennifer Pastiloff

the WANTcast

Jennifer Pastiloff’s debut memoir, On Being Human, is set to release on June 4th, and it’s already getting massively well-deserved buzz. Centered around the touchstone stories Jen tells in her popular workshops, On Being Human is the story of how a starved person grew into the exuberant woman she was meant to be all along by battling the demons within and winning. It’s about how years of waitressing taught her to seek out unexpected beauty, how deafness taught her to listen fiercely, how being vulnerable allowed her to find love, and how imperfections can lead to a life full of wild happiness. The world is about to watch her explode. And so, before they do, I wanted to give you all a chance to meet her, so you too can say you knew her “way back when.”

jennifer pastiloff quote

In this episode we talk about navigating trauma and grief (especially from unexpected death), feeling worth and building confidence when all you feel is worthless, and shifting from a mindset of expecting to be disappointed to expecting to be delighted.

WANTcast 077: How To Tell If You’re Using Your Intuition Or Being Triggered

the WANTcast

Getting a “gut feeling” can be your intuition kicking in…or a case of being triggered. And if you’re a naturally super-intuitive and “tuned in” person, it can be even more difficult than normal to tell the difference. Make sure you know which is which before you make a choice you might not feel so great about after the fact.

Ever feel like you don’t have enough time to make your mark? Feel like technology (or maybe just other people) are more in control of your life’s story than you are? In this solo episode, I talk about my latest “a-has” about making meaning and leaving your legacy – and hopefully, it’ll give you some of your own a-ha moments too.

Liz Moody is a writer, editor, host of the Healthier Together podcast, recipe developer, and the author of two healthy cookbooks: Healthier Together and Glow Pops. She’s a fierce advocate for mental health and emotional intelligence, a fiction enthusiast who encourages you to not only embrace the power of your imagination but also experience stories that AREN’T like your own, and a firm believer that community and connection are at the heart of living a life that’s truly lived well.

In this episode we tackle mental health and how anxiety might show up for you, chasing your dreams, nurturing healthy relationships, why community is an integral part of wellness, what it actually means to “live your best life,” real vs. pseudo inspiration on the internet and beyond, and more.
