    I’m devasted! Your episodes have helped me through so many crappy days. Your realness, your humor and your interaction with each other – GOLD!

  • This episode made me cry guys! Kate, when you said ‘I’m looking around for who was in charge, and it’s me’ literally tears streamed down my face out of nowhere. I had divorced parents at 3 and this ‘feeling held’ thing is so vital for our truth. Like, who would we be if we let go of the sides of the slide (and there was no-one to catch us at the bottom?). Self trust – wow, it is so scary and exciting!
    Wishing you both so much happiness in the next chapter and I’m excited about your Origin launch! SJ x

      I’m so glad this resonated so deeply with you Sarah-Jane. Catching ourselves at the bottom of the slide. Brilliant analogy!
