Maddy 0:08 Welcome to the living in sunshine podcast if you don’t know who I am, my name is Maddy. And I am so excited to have you tuning in to our weekly podcast episodes, where we chat all the things from tips and tricks to funny stories from my life that have helped me to truly live in the sunshine. In this space, we are all about encouraging, inspiring and giving you the tough love that you need to hear sometimes to realize that you are totally made for more than what you currently have in life, and that you hold the power to make the changes that you need to level up and live your best self. So buckle up, grab some water and let’s get into it. Hello, my friends and welcome back to another episode of The Living in sunshine podcast. If you are new here, my name is Maddie and I am so glad that you are coming back for yet another episode of The Living ascension podcast. Now I was thinking the other day quite literally as I was sitting on the pod going to the bathroom. Do I need to change the intro and the outro of my episodes because I know that I have been saying them the same exact way. Every single episode, week after week after week. I feel like you guys could probably like repeat my intro and outro back to me without even needing to listen to it. Because it’s just been the same thing over and over and over. And I don’t over should change it. I personally enjoy knowing the intro and outro to a podcast like it just feels like a warm fuzzy, like comfort blanket like oh, this is my favorite show. I know exactly what she’s gonna say. But I don’t know you. You tell me send me a message over on Instagram. My handle is at living the letter N sunshine if you feel like it needs a refresh. It was definitely something that popped into my brain a couple days ago before I knew that I was going to be recording these episodes. So let me know what you think. And we’ll see what happens. Maybe I’m going to refresh maybe not. But we’ll see. Now my friends are welcome it to the month of September, I cannot believe that we are here in a brand new month once again. And I am so excited for September. There’s a lot of good things coming for the living in Sunshine Community. Lots of good things coming through the end of the year for this space. But the number one thing that I wanted my podcast listeners to know about is a super fun brand new personality survey that I made just for you. Now this survey is completely free to take you can literally take it on your phone right now. So long as you are not driving. If you are driving, please, please, please don’t take it right now. Pay attention to what you’re doing. But you can take this personality survey, I made it specifically for the living in Sunshine Community. All you have to do is head to living the letter n sunshine.com. So my website slash survey, and you can take it from there. This personality survey is going to tell you which of the four personas you are yes, we have living in sunshine personalities or personas now and I am obsessed with them. They are happy, Hustler, purpose pursuer, Dream Chaser, or joy seeker. And this quiz is going to tell you exactly which one of those personas you are. And then going forward, you’re going to get resources, tips, tricks, strategies, tailored guidance, support and trainings for you based off that personality from me in the future. Like how cool is that? This survey is going to help you discover what kind of personality you are, but also help me help you in a more tailored way. And it’s completely free. So again, head to my website living in sunshine.com/survey and take it now and don’t forget to send me a DM on Instagram, letting me know which one you got. All righty friend, let’s go ahead and dive into our first episode of September. And because it is a new month, we have a brand new theme. All month long. In August we talked about mindset. So if you are looking for mindset tips or strategies or to hear how I have developed the mindset that I have, definitely head back to August’s episodes and give those a listen. In all month long in September, we’re going to be tackling things such as habits and routines, because these are probably one of if not the highest thing that I get questions on in terms of what my habits are, how I develop routines to actually support me instead of starve me. And all of the things in between go with habits and routines. And we’re going to be tackling and diving into them all month long. And to kick off the month of September. We are starting with a hype girl chat, which by now if you have listened to enough hype girl chats, you know that these are my favorite kinds of episodes to record because they are short sweet to the point They’re kind of a gut check, kind of a reality check. And it’s me giving you the tough love that I think that we all need to get sometimes, kind of like when your mom lectures you for something stupid that you did, and you don’t want to hear it, but you know that you need to hear it to get better. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me. That’s what these episodes are, they are a tough love. Sit down, come to Jesus, talk with me, between you and me. So that way you can light the fire under your HSS in order to go out there and achieve the goals and dreams that you have for yourself. We all need these types of conversations every now and then. And that’s what these things are. So today, my friend, I am giving you a big hearty gut check. And the fact that your habits and the habits that you choose, are going to determine the life that you live. Literally you guys, if you want to live in a certain way that is either different, or in your eyes better than the way that you’re currently living, you’re going to have to have specific habits and routines that help you live that kind of life. Right? If you want to live a quote unquote healthier lifestyle, maybe you want to, I don’t know, have six pack or have a big booty or you want to lose a couple of pounds or you just want to feel more confident in your clothes. Having the habit of going out to dinner every single night of the week and drinking a Diet Coke every three hours in your day is not going to help you get to that kind of lifestyle. It’s just not. Same with if you are wanting to live a more financially stable or financially secure life, going on shopping binges at two o’clock in the morning, while you’re feeding your baby isn’t going to help you get there. You have to be personally responsible for your habits and your routines. In order to live the kind of life that you want to live. It’s easier to blame others for the habits and routines that we have. Because we don’t want to take personal responsibility for the actions that we’re taking, which are then leading us to live the kind of life that we have. But you guys when we want to truly improve. The first step to doing that is taking personal responsibility for our actions, our thoughts, our opinions, and how we live our life day to day. And all of us combined me to get better about not pointing the finger at someone else or something else in our life and saying, that’s why I can’t do that. That’s why I can’t eat healthy. That’s why I don’t have time to work out. That’s why I don’t have any extra money to save. That’s why I can’t go back to school. The examples the reasons excuses go on and on and on and on forever. So sorry to interrupt the show my dude but I have some exciting news I need to share with you right now. Are you ready? I am so excited to share it that the sunshine squad monthly membership has officially launched to everyone. I designed this membership to help all of my happy hustlers, Joy seekers dream chasers and purpose pursuers have a space where they can feel supported, encouraged and inspired every single day to get after their most ideal life. Included in this membership are two coaching calls led by myself daily check ins to help you stay on track and accountable in your joy seeking weekly q&a opportunities for me to give you tailored coaching and guidance in your journey. And the High Pro text thread is coming back for members only. And the best part about this, it’s only $20 a month. Literally, I made this membership for you, the girl who is ready to take control of her life, live a life of joy and obsession, and also help you get connected with other like minded women who want the same exact thing that you do. So go jump into the membership. Now you can find all of the information that you need and the link to join us in the show notes. Or you can go find more information over on my Instagram, which is at living the letter N sunshine. And I cannot wait to see you in there. But the truth of the matter is, if you want to live a certain way, or be a certain kind of person in the future, you need to start living like that person right now. No matter what else is going on in your life. No matter what other sort of extenuating circumstances there might be. You can in some way to some capacity, make your life the way that you want it to be in the future right now. Right? So say you want to be one of those. What are they even called on Tick? Tick tock like those like I don’t even know what they call them like those girls who like get up early and they drink cute matches or cute coffees. And they like Get ready every day. And they were like oversized T shirts and biker shorts and they look like so cute with a little skinny sunglass. You know, I’m talking about if you If I hope you know what I’m talking about, because I’m using them as an example, if you want to be that kind of person, right, that’s totally fine, I totally honor that, you can start doing that now, by implementing some part of that person’s life into your own day, right. And this isn’t me telling you to live somebody else’s life. This is me giving you an example as to how you could create that life for yourself. Even if you have a dog barfing on the ground, and a baby pooping in their diaper and a husband who doesn’t know where his pants are, and you’re late to work, right? The way that you do this, is by getting up maybe a little bit earlier, or making small swaps and small changes in the way that you go grocery shopping, or the way that you dress or taking the time to get ready, whatever it might be. And in order to live that life that you want, you have to start living that life in some way, right now. Because when you live a life, or you live in the way that you want to live, quote, unquote, in the future, and you start doing that now, and you start making those small changes. Now, over time, those small changes will compound into you designing the life that you have always wanted, whether it is living a certain lifestyle, having a specific job getting in a certain kind of relationship, leaving a certain situation that is no longer serving you, whatever it might be, when we make the small intentional actions. Now, instead of saying, oh, when XYZ circumstances, excuses situations, whatever are different when we take that control, and we say, Nope, I’m going to make this small change right now. And you start to own your habits, and choose your habits intentionally, you will realize that over time, you have started to live and design and work within the kind of life that you have always wanted. Does that make sense? My hope for you is that as you hear this, you think, oh shoot, I could make this small change in this way. Or I could seek out this new resource to you know, start that thing that I’ve always wanted, or, oh my gosh, there’s this habit that I know, isn’t maybe very good for me. But it is something that I can change in a small way in order to live the kind of life that I have always wanted, whatever that looks like for you, right? I’m not here to tell you to live like that specific girlie on Tik Tok or Instagram or wherever you’re watching and consuming social media. I’m telling you to focus on the kind of life that you want. Knowing what that looks like. And recognizing that you have to take personal responsibility of your own habits and you choose your habits which then choose the type of life that you will have in the future, my friend, I hope you needed this kind of reminder today and if you did, I would love to hear about it over on Instagram.
