thathonestything's farewell
thathonestything is transitioning to INNERDUCE! No lie, this is bittersweet, but definitely more on the sweet side. In my true fashion, I am honoring the journey and choosing to embrace the evolution. No need for a huge goodbye, as this is just a natural transition. I am so excited about the conversations, content, and creativity to come. I hope you will enjoy this new chapter with me. Please visit INNERDUCE.COM for more information (but be kind as the website is still in the works). Platforms will be undergoing a name and logo change so no need to re-subscribe, however, you will need to re-subscribe to the website when it’s fully functioning. I love you all, thank you for the light. Always,
 Aminat Email: Instagram: innerduce (beginning 9/30/20) Website: If all else fails, still search 'thathonestything' and you’ll be pointed in the right direction!

The Truth About Self-Healing and Healing Forward
"When a plant is cut, cells regenerate to close the wound so it can continue to grow and minimize risks of becoming further infected and dying. When your physical body is wounded, an army of different types of blood cells and platelets swarm in to heal and close the wound. Where there is harm, nature shows us time and time again that the response is to repair. So, when our mental and emotional self is harmed, repairing is also required. This, is what I refer to as self-healing—the conscious and deliberate choice to go inward, discover the hurt, and heal and repair from inside out to preserve your livelihood. Bottom line, self-healing is survival." thathonestything returns with an episode highlighting the importance of self-healing and the meaning of healing forward as it pertains to everyday life and our current social and political climate. Produced, hosted, and edited by Aminat Salihu.

The Truth About Gratitude
Gratitude is a practice. And contrary to how we might view it, it doesn't erase negative emotions or experiences, but rather, allows us to extract from each experience we have, tools for growth and elevation. Open your mind to a different take on gratitude and how to apply it in your life authentically as well as the responses from amazing Arubans as they answered the question, "what are you grateful for"? Join me on Instagram to answer the question yourself!

The Truth About Calling Yourself Out
There are times when we need to acknowledge the nonsense we pull on ourselves. Sometimes, we are our greatest inhibitors and reasons for stunted growth. This isn't a "make us feel worthless" type of podcast, but it is a "make you think, get up, and change something" type of podcast. I talk about the things we need to call out within ourselves when it comes to work, relationships, and our dreams. If you're ready... listen.

A Little Truth About Why We Don't Discontinue Relationships
The actual title of this episode is "A Little Truth About Folks Who Continue Relationships Knowing They Should Let Go". But, it didn't fit. "Not communicating-- not keeping it honest with your partner is a cowardly way to protect your feelings while exploiting theirs. You are protecting your feelings at the expense of someone else’s. It may not be the intention, but that is what it is." Don't rob people of their choice or time. Keep it honest.
