Think Out Loud With Me

Natalie P.

Hi friends! Welcome to THINK OUT LOUD WITH ME, a chat-cast produced, hosted, and humbly offered by yours truly, Natalie P., from my neck of the woods to YOU…in YOURS. I’m taking full advantage of a Universally-accepted, irrevocable license to be curious, and held by every single one of us to engage others in constructive and enlightening conversation. After years of internal chatter, white boards full of wondering, logs of silent suffering, and physical and mental close calls, I’m exhausted keeping it all together by myself. THINK OUT LOUD WITH ME is my own search for Self, and the clarity, connection, community, and congruence I know I'll discover in the stories and perspectives and beauty of others in search of the same. In so doing, if I help you find your voice…ignite your curiosity…nudge you just a bit in your own favor…well, shit. I’d like that. I’d like that a LOT.Thanks for listening. read less

S2 E15: TOLWM + TONI NAGY x PEOPLE-PLEASING, BOOBS, MENTAL HEALTH, MORE
I'll tell ya what's next. This little chat is fresh off the Zoom Room floor. I found a new friend, her name is Toni Nagy. Lemme read you a little bit of what's online about this fantastic human who agreed to think out loud with me.Toni Nagy is a stand-up comic that’s quasi–radical, somewhat-existential, and mostly funny. Her comedy is like an acid trip, but with equal opportunity genital jokes. She’s also a writer, film-maker, sketch comedy creator, and co-dependent (if that's ok with you).  Toni is a filmmaker that has written/ edited/directed/and acted in over 50 sketch comedy videos that together have upwards of 1.5 million views. Cavelight Productions is her independent media company. She's a dancer. She dances like a - my words now - like a woman possessed with the spirits of awesome, free, empowering, engaging, YUM!I personally found her magic on Instagram - she has hundreds of thousands of followers across platforms...you'll find her...I did and fell in love with her crazy! Cuz she's crazy talented! I'm talking from the top of her head to the bottom of her toes. Lovely. And she's committed to being a good person.Toni and I connected this morning. Me in my cozy, colorful Colorado corner, while she piped in from her yard in New Hampshire. Besides an opening that is likely similar in feeling to being lost in the very deep woods and a super awkward left turn about BOOBS that I guess I needed to get off my chest 😬 I'd confidently say our first encounter was as meaningful and enjoyable as I anticipated.  She's great. Listen in. Find her online. Toni's the real deal. I'm really tickled to be able to think out loud with her.IG @toninagyFB @toni.nagyYT @toninagyBlog tonibologna.comSite cavelightproductions.comJust google her! NOW!

The last time I saw my guest, January Riggin, was 30+ years ago in our tiny li'l hometown, and I'm fucking grateful to have the chance to #THINKOUTLOUD with this survivor, author, non-profit founder, and badass human in episode 14. It's time to #getreal.January's new book, Dark Side of the Moon Child, is her truth of long-term recovery. She is a survivor of sex trafficking, domestic violence, addiction, and the criminal justice system. She's mom to a 22 year old, and she'll soon be a grandma, too! Driven by "street-level passion," she founded #SOAP2HOPE, an SLC nonprofit that advocates for women, men, and teenagers who have been sexually exploited and sex trafficked.She's on my cast on purpose, and I invite you to listen in. It's fucking raw, my mic is wonky, and who the hell knows how to end these casts with any sort of...and who really fucking cares, like really? It's messy ON #PURPOSE. Fuck. I'll get to the fancy shit. In the meantime, #THISSHITMATTERSFIND JANUARY, HER BOOK, and HER NON-PROFIT ATjanuary@soap2hopeut.com #traffickedinsilence #sextrafficking #sextraffickingawareness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideawareness #selflove #recovery #healing #bedohave #congruence #truth #courage #vulnerability #tribe #connection #community #grateful #fuck #findyourvoice #ownyourstory #accountability #awareness #selfawareness #empathy #addictionSupport the show

Episode 13: Think Out Loud With Me + Guest Cathy Huddleston x Horses Helping Humans
…this life stuff…sometimes it’s hard. And when it’s hard, well, I look for input. I look for connection. I look for my tribe. I recently hosted a guest that I consider a part of my tribe. Cathy Huddleston is a horse and people trainer, educator, student, author, speaker, mentor and believer in acceptance of self and others. She accepts me. And her heart desires to help me. And I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, her heart desires to help you.As lifelong horsewoman and a co-facilitator in the experiences she offers in-person outside Kansas City, Missouri, or in some cases, virtually, Cathy wants to help you connect to your true self in a present state of being through the eyes of a horse. As a teacher, as a partner, as a friend, the horse is capable of walking with you as you seek congruence. Horses are 100% present and do not pretend to be something they are not. They work towards coherence with the environment and co-authored regulation of returning to a FULLY present state of being. Congruence. When your insides match your outsides. When your strange beauty flies. When the ‘what if’s die. And you return to yourself. “Through the Eyes of a Horse” is a children’s book Cathy authored to put words to this magic. It’s a unique story of how a little girl finds self-acceptance through the experience of seeing herself reflected through the eyes of a horse.Get to know Cathy with me, if even for just these few minutes of a cast. She’s an incredible soul who has a beautiful gift to share with the world by helping humans heal beside horses. We visit about the beauty of it all. The opportunity of relationships with the horses in our communities around us.  Having personally experienced healing through horses in 1:1 sessions, as well as family and group and significant other, I can only share life-changing stories. Others have stories, too. Listen to more! Horses Helping Humans is a podcast Cathy hosts to bring even MORE awareness to the magic of horses helping humans heal and grow and thrive.Finally, LINKS TO FIND CATHY are embedded above or down below!LinkedInFacebookInstagramWebsiteSupport the show

Find her this weekend hosting an online Toltec Sacred Journey Workshop!This chat is the first of many I want to share to celebrate what it means to live in our truths, to fight ourselves to find and defend our highest potential within. My former sister and brother in law, Tina and her husband, Jason, an ordained Transformational Minister of the Healing Arts, are beautiful humans living in Sebastopol, California, raising their two beautiful daughters. I’m proud to know them, and I’m grateful they are finding such peace in their own truths.These truths. Unique to each of us, buried under layers of years of strife. Don’t you notice them…everywhere…actually springing to life?!? In honoring our own truths, we infuse others with the energetic support to honor theirs.That’s something you can get behind, no? C'mon. Get curious. I dare ya. I am!Support the show

Episode 5: Mental Fitness x Guest Amy K
Amy K is a badass, and I've invited her to think out loud with me about the concept of MENTAL FITNESS. She partners with people desiring to reach their full potential, and I have experienced firsthand her coaching magic. Listen in as we visit about mental fitness definitions, recovery time, drowning in waist deep water, and the direction we choose when we either stand up and actively move towards wellness or continue to splash around awkwardly waiting for someone to throw a rope or a bone or a dollar. This is the first of many conversations we'll enjoy with this wonderful human, 'cuz I think she has a LOT to share!Amy has mentored hundreds of people and teams since she began as a Professional Certified Coach in 2002, and her insight comes from walking side by side with humans of every sort, from C-suite executives to college students. She's got a unique style developed from a background in computer science layered with intensive work and training in communications, facilitation, strategic planning, management and leadership techniques. Amy's services include individual and group coaching, and she is the host of The Growth Moment, an awesome podcast that allows us to listen into real-time coaching sessions.Ultimately, Amy is a friend, and she is a very smart woman for whom I have a lot of respect. She is authentic in her pursuit of her highest Self, first and foremost. She has built a business, she has raised a family, and she has kept her wits while helping so many others keep theirs within safe spaces she has carefully created. I trust her input in my own pursuit of defining and practicing mental fitness in my own life.You can find Amy K Coaching at:www.amykcoaching.comwww.thegrowthmoment.comSupport the show
