The 2021 Pizza
The 2021 Pizza
This episode focuses on some truths that we should know and may only need a little reminder. In this 20 ish minute long episode, Candice talks about the journey with the creation of a pizza and how the experience brought forth lessons such as "it's okay to know your desired end product without knowing how you'll get there". Candice dropped a couple gems in this episode about managing your time and the tasks and responsibilities you may have. Treat your life like a pizza in some weird way and apply the lessons you'll learn as you prepare and bake the pizza. Signed with love, The Suburban Girl JA #Visioning

The Lizard In my bathroom
The Lizard In my bathroom
In this episode, Candice speaks frankly about claiming your space in areas you belong without shrinking because small minded people tell you that you don't belong. In an odd encounter with a lizard in her bathroom, she somehow finds life lessons to motivate and perhaps inspire others to fight for what belongs to them and fight for what they want. So in true, Suburban Girl JA style, go for what you want and learn the lessons in every experience! Signed with love, The Suburban Girl JA #ClaimYourSpace

Point Blank Period
Point Blank Period
On this episode, Candice shares her first experience with her period and the awkward and uncomfortable motions she went through when it happened. She shares, as well moments where her period pains get unbearable and the tell tale signs that the period is on the way. As the story progresses, she speaks about the need for us to make room for conversations with girls, boys, mothers, fathers and other family members I openly discuss periods without having it be hushed and made into a taboo conversation. Periods are quite natural and as such, the conversations about them should be equally natural. Though hilarious in delivery, this episode is also a conversation starter. So let's continue to have the conversation and make it a normal occurrence. Signed with love, The Suburban Girl JA #Period

Lessons from an uncle with End Stage Renal Failure
Lessons from an uncle with End Stage Renal Failure
In this episode, Candice briefly shares lessons she learned from an uncle who recently passed away. All three lessons came from the way he lived his life and the way the Suburban Girl JA wished he didn't. This podcast episode was recorded after the realisation that it's World Kidney Day. Uncle died from complications with the kidney. So what better way than to pay tribute from the perspective of the Suburban Girl JA? Backstory: After a quick recording and post production, it was realised that more context is needed. So here goes. My lovely uncle was diagnosed with kidney issues a few years ago. He also had diabetes. He stopped taking his medication and sought help strictly from a herbalist. That decision led to the gradual decay or his kidneys. In the end, he passed away when the family wasn't prepared in any way to see him go. Since his departure, it's been difficult to traverse life. It still feels unreal, even. Because I except him to call and say "sis". I expect him to come to the house on a random weekend. I expect him to come on a public holiday. .... The brief discussion was done unguided so you will hear the realness in the pauses, the sighs, the cracks in the voice and the random dog barking in the background. Take heed, though. Live well and learn from the lessons shared. #aTribute #WorldKidneyDay

Tackling Fear and Anxiety | Lessons from my friend's garden
Tackling Fear and Anxiety | Lessons from my friend's garden
In this episode, The Suburbam Girl JA shares a story that her friend shared. She speaks about the pests in our lives that affect our ability to bloom. One of the major takeaways is that the pests in our lives feed on us and/or the things we nurture because they actually need us to survive. So, if we tackle them and banish them from our space, we give ourselves better opportunities to bloom. In true Suburban Girl JA style, Candice leave listeners with tips/steps in tackling the fears and anxiety that cripples us. Remember to face them head on. The longer you avoid those pests is the longer they'll stay in your life.

For International Women's Day 2021, Candice dedicates the show to the women in her life.

Though it wasn't explicitly stated, The Suburban Girl JA hopes that women will learn from the lessons and also recognise their power. This episode was recorded without guiding notes so you may feel as though Candice is right there with you as she uses fillers, short pauses and some stutter as she finds the words to share.
