I recently tweeted the following: "How come no one talks about the difficulty of transitioning into new seasons where everything is NEW?!?" A season where you are humbled because you have to re-learn, re-adjust, and be flexible.." Welp! This is me talking about it. Join the Take A Shot!

Chin up darling! Trouble don't last always..
Social media has this way of fooling us into thinking everyone is doing well BUT YOU and that you are isolated in your pain. However, after having some eye-opening conversations with different people, I realize this couldn’t be further from the truth.  Yes, the sun is shining and the days are gorgeous but we are living in some dark and scary times. Just turn on your phone and look through the news app and you will see exactly what I’m talking about. Our personal lives are no different. On the outside things seem good but behind closed doors, things are (if you allow yourself to admit it), a hot mess. Things are not so great.  So, what do you do when things are not so great?! What do you need to do to make it through?  I share my thoughts on today’s newest podcast episode. Join the Take A Shot!

How to peacefully transition into your new season
Summer is FINALLY here and with that comes warm sun shiny days, laying by the pool, vacationing and more. As for me, this summer has come with the T word... transition. I have been tempted to say to God: "this again?! Can we not?!" I have heavily disliked transition because it has revealed some fears I didn't know existed. But throughout every period of transition, I have learned how to maintain my peace and not let the worry, fear, and anxiety of a new season overwhelm me. So, If you find yourself in a new season or transitioning into a new season, this episode was made for you. ❤️ Join the Take A Shot!

How to start living your BEST life NOW!
On today’s episode, I talk a little bit about the college admission scandals and share the valuable lesson I learned from it. Secondly, I talk about the popular phrase “living my best life.” While it is harmless for some, for others not so much. I realized most people (myself included at times) tend to equate living their best lives with material stuff. Don’t get me wrong, while having nice things is…nice...It should NOT be the telltale sign of someone living their best life.

STOP DOUBTING! It's killing your dreams
The saying is true...Doubt kills more dream than failure ever will.  Today’s podcast episode was especially important for me to get out because this is something I personally struggle with and am learning to overcome.  If there is one thing I know, it is that I am typically not alone in my struggle. If I am struggling with something, then someone out there is struggling and needs to hear that they are not alone and that they too can overcome.  Follow me on social: Email questions/comments: takeashotpodcast@gmail.com Instagram: @EmemJoyEmah Twitter: @EmemJoyEmah -------------------------------------------------------- Other places to listen: Anchor Apple Podcasts Spotify Google Podcasts

Racism
Often times, on the road to pursuing purpose we are faced with hardships and difficulties -- this is a given. However, for a person of color like myself, I have found the challenges to be even more difficult because sometimes depending on the environment, circumstance, and people we encounter, racism is added to the mix. What do you do when you are a person of color pursuing purpose in a field where you are often the only person of color in the room? How do you react when you are unfairly treated and the racism is blatant? How can you survive in such an environment? How can you stay encouraged to keep pursuing purpose under such circumstances? Of course I don’t have all the answers but I hope this episode is a spark for conversation and more importantly a shift in perspective.

Reclaiming Your 2017
As the year dwindled away, I felt a great deal of disappointment. What happened to my 2017?! -- I would ask myself. I so greatly believed this year was going to be my best year yet. I mean… I did the whole mental visualization and mission statements thing that all the greats say they do right before they encounter breakthrough. As I reflected over my year, it turned out to be nothing I envisioned but truthfully, it turned out to be everything I NEEDED it to be.

Joel Osteen
One of my pet-peeves is popular opinion based on what people want to hear and believe rather than actual factual information. This week, the internet did not disappoint. Joel Osteen was dragged up and down my timeline. However, the slander against Joel Osteen’s character, in my humble opinion, was unfounded. In this week’s brand new episode, I share my appall at people’s readiness to annihilate this man’s character without evidence. In addition, I share the lessons I’ve learned to apply to my own life.

Time to grow up!
On a very lazy Wednesday evening I was laying in my bed, absent-mindedly perusing twitter, when I stumbled upon the Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna debacle. Now, I am not one to speak publicly on situations I know nothing of but I felt there was something here. I felt in the midst of the “juicy” drama, there was a lesson that needed to be emphasized. So of course, I grabbed my handy-dandy recording tools and I got to work. The result is what you hear on this most recent episode. Take a listen and share your thoughts.
