Birthday Etiquette: It’s A Thing

Yes, it’s the thought that counts, but what is the thought? Does a post of Facebook have the same thoughtfulness as a call? Is a direct text more intimate than a declaration on social media? Is a voice memo more personal than a text?

The Internet Has Killed Common Decency

In the first four days of the new year, I’ve had two online experiences that really make me question if there’s any way to accelerate the next life extinguishing comet so Earth can start over. Human beings have lost all sense of decency and decorum, and well, just common courtesy.

Teach Your Children Well

There comes a point in parenting when you have to flip a switch in your approach. When you stop raising children and you start raising adults. It’s time to drop the facade and start sharing with your late teen/early adult children more of the human experience. There is huge benefit to them, and to you, to show not only the highlight reel of your life that they are probably already familiar with, but to start exposing some of the challenges you face, some of the regrets you may have, and some life lessons that you’d like them to internalize earlier than you did.

We say what you're thinking...

It’s Raining Inside Tracy’s House And No That’s Not A Metaphor

Kimby’s computer wont start and ALL of the thoughts start spinning. The problem? Let’s just say there’s a reoccurring issue with Kimby’s technology… Also it’s raining inside of Tracy’s house. Just another day in The Midlife.

Finding Safe Harbor

Sharing what we need and being vulnerable is important to having a healthy relationship. Also knowing that not all people are safe and therefore not the right place to share your vulnerability. Tracy and Kimby discussing it all and unsurprisingly, it all comes back to understanding what’s “My Ten Acre

We’re Trying The Tracy Anderson Method – Here’s How It’s Going

Why we are late to recording this morning plus our foray into The Tracy Anderson Method. We are not affiliated. Just an honest accounting…

What You See Is What You Get

It happens to everyone – you hit a slump and you have to get back on track. Kimby’s mojo’s been missing. We talk about it.

How To Get Your Groove Back

It happens to everyone – you hit a slump and you have to get back on track. Kimby’s mojo’s been missing. We talk about it.

Yael Rallis: Rockstar Drummer Then, Now, & Always

We have a special guest… Yael Rallis joins us to talk about The Midlife and her journey in it. Yael never stopped living her dream. She is an uber talented rock drummer who has toured the world and had endless creative endeavors. Yael was true to her path and calling but talks us through her world and validates how yes, we all end up in The Midlife.

Good Grief

We start off with another episode of “why are we late to recording?”
Today we discuss the layers of grieving. And yes Tracy cries a lot while sharing which layer she is in with her Dad’s passing. Kimby talks about her Mother-In-Laws’ passing, and the gifts she got from her.

Carry Your Own Baggage

We are getting DEEP today. Let’s talk about the hard relationships. Do you have a relationship in which someone hands you 50 lbs of bad energy and you carry it? Tracy has found herself in one of these and is playing with not grabbing the energy being passed her way. One sided relationships feel heavy, but is the fear of loosing the relationship worse than the need to be the person you want to be today?

Learn To Value The Pause

Kimby is in a slump, Tracy is on an upswing (so annoying but also good when you are in a partnership- one up and one down makes for a good relationship).

A lot of time we need to blow the whistle for ourselves, but do we ? Or do we let it all continue to pile up until we are underneath it all?

Happy Hour LIVE! – Pamela Anderson Documentary Discussion

Illegal Dumping

How do we use our friends?

Are our safe places for gossip and gang up energy or do we use them to be vulnerable to show in ways where we can grow and push each other to be better?

Should we let our people wallow? Or do we jump in and have the hard talks with love?

Vent? Or Advice? How do we show up for each other and how do we want to show up for others and have them show up for us?

Happy Un-Birthday

In recording land it’s really Kimby’s birthday (in the real world her day in Jan 10) and it’s a doozy. The old pictures came flying in – do we like seeing old pictures of us on our birthday in midlife? Or do we hate it? Tracy is having a life lesson learning moment… you know those? Where you feel like you might disappoint a whole bunch of people? Are you expecting 100% satisfaction guaranteed? For you to be unflawed ? Hear Tracy’s human experience.

You Are The Matrix

You have the power to set the energy of any situation. We’ll show you how. You are the matrix.

Happy Hour LIVE – Parenting Children & Re-Parenting Yourself

Parenting expert and coach Randi Rubenstein joined us today to talk all things parenting. And in Midlife, that really means applying all the “reparenting” you’ve been doing of yourself to ALL relationships – humans smaller and larger than you, those birthed from your loins…or not.

Money – shhhhhh!

Many of us got the message that is was not polite to discuss money. We think that does all of us a huge disservice

My Ten Acres

“My Ten Acres” is one of Tracy’s favorite phrases. We thought it might be a good idea to dig down into exactly what it is and what it means to each of us. The irony, Kimby knows exactly what Tracy means by it, but in practice, she hasn’t fully embraced it. Come hear why and […]

You’re Right

Maybe it’s painful to realize how much influence your thoughts have over the outcomes in your life. But also, can you see how incredibly powerful you are?

It was an experiment! And we’re taking the win. A few brave souls showed up to the audience and someone even jumped in with us. So fun! Will you come next week?

It’s Not My Birthday

Kimby and Tracy do dive in to how you give birthday wishes – who’s worthy of a text or call or who just gets the facebook hbd. They talk about how they celebrate and Tracy gives Kimby a challenge.

Where The F Are The Yams?

“Why we are late to recording” plus hairdresser loyalty, clearing out stagnant energy, and total resets. Kimby and Tracy also laugh about a major “midlife moment”. This one was a doozy. Listen. It’ll make you feel…better? Human? Less alone?
