**DISCLAIMER: A VERY real, open and personal episode, so expect some foul language and crude subject matter.**
Discussing monogamy, commitment and polyamory, fellow traveler Elijah and I establish that accepting you're human first - complex, ever-changing, multi-faceted - is paramount before starting a relationship with another, and that there may be a way to maximise life's satisfaction and happiness levels via the type of relationship you choose... Should we expect one person to meet all our needs? Can we all have our cake and eat it...? LISTEN FOR THE JUICIEST EPISODE YET!
BIG THANKS to a few glasses of wine, and the arty vegan cafe, Ground Zero/Marley Coffee in Observatory, Cape Town. Paul and Ross very kindly offered us their back chill space to record in late at night. Perfect for the conscious eater or coffee connoisseur! IG: @groundzero_obz

After 4 months away (journeying new landscapes internally and around the world), with 2.5 of them spent in Cape Town, SA it was time to reflect and round-up. As a 27-year-old, African mixed race, middle class, nomadic female from the UK, here’s what I learnt about myself, managing the process of being away alone, and how I’m perceived differently from another cultural and societal lens.

It’s so easy for us to carry on viewing the world as we’ve always done and acting on default behaviour. But what if there’s a better way? In this episode I explore 3 new techniques for looking at, and understanding everyday encounters and difficulties, enabling us to respond and behave with greater empathy. This not only fosters more calm and fulfilment in ourselves but also for others, creating an easier time for us all! Ahhhhhh 🙏🏻

Some people wake up at 5.50am to see the sunrise, others cull social media for the first hour of the day. Whatever they may consist of, morning routines sure are being researched, sworn by and shouted about A LOT these days. But is all the hype adding extra pressure? In this episode I question if this trend is perpetuating personal success or self sabotage, as well as how to look at them in a way that may work for you. REMEMBER: there’s no one size fits all!
