Whole 'n' Some

Whole 'n' Some

By Karwirwa Laura
Hi friend :) I'm glad you're here..

Whole 'n' some is a podcast, as its name depicts, that is here to inspire wholeness and encourage the pursuit of it.
I'm a firm believer in making the best of life, while we have it. Hence, here, we will explore different life conversations - savoring the joys, unpacking the difficult, drawing inspiration from our stories, making sense of the journey of life while embracing the senseless with radical acceptance. Journey with me....because life's unscripted dish is not meant to be eaten alone.

Happy listening! :)

Episode 8: "I Found God When I Left The Church"
Deriving from my conversation with Wamz last week, I thought to talk on this topic that I have heard with many people in my life - " I found God when I left the church". I resonate. Hence, in this episode, I share my personal experience on this... I'd love to hear your stories though, because I know this experience is different for everyone. Kindly send me a short voice note with your story on 0110682394 and I'll hopefully share in coming episodes. Love!

Episode 7: The Roaming Mic on Wamaitha Karanja
This is probably my best episode yet! As a first of the roaming mic edition, I had the pleasure of having a conversation with Wamaitha Karanja - a strong, beautiful lady wrapped in a cute 4"11 package, lol. We talk everything from raising her daughter (her little best friend), to our defiance against pre-marital norms & teachings especially in the church, the impact of illness on mental health, self confidence & relationships and much....much more. Wamaitha has a powerful story, from close people in her life battling with cancer, divorce after 4 years of marriage & struggling with illness as well, that began with being diagnosed with a desmoid tumor & granted 6 months to live. She has fought through a lot, which sure explains her unapologetic zeal for life! Watch Wamaitha's Engage talk here: I know you're gonna enjoy this one :)

Episode 6: Pleasure Isn't Happiness
Recently, I got into ruminating on some deep thoughts as I battled indecision in a particular area of my life. I realized that I was indecisive mainly because I was pre-empting future dissatisfaction. Ever had that thought like, "what if one day this thing doesn't make me happy anymore?" Firstly, it's not on other people or other things to MAKE us happy. Happiness is personal responsibility. And also, pleasure isn't the prerequisite for happiness. On this episode I rumble out my thoughts on this idea. Happy listening, friend.

Episode 2: Post Valentines Day - Accommodating each others' headspaces
Deriving from the context of Valentine's Day and how we experience it differently, on this episode we talk about how different things mean different things on an individual basis and we can't all have the same experience of a similar thing; therefore needing to be accomodative of the different spaces life puts us in. This is also the debut of the segments "did you know?" and " health-check" Enjoy:)
