Episode 28: So You Agree? You Think You're Really Pretty.

Do you take compliments well? 

Without the "ums, ahs" and everything in between? If there's one thing we've noticed that many of us (ourselves included!), instead of saying "thank you" and moving on, we qualify our choices. If someone likes our outfit we tell them how much it costs. If someone thinks our curly hair looks nice, we turn it around, or talk about how difficult it is to manage in the humidity.

We do this in the name of being humble. But where do you draw the line between humility and trash-talking yourself?

In this episode:


That's what she said:

  • "If you say you like my dress, is it because you can see my boobs through it?" -Brett
  • "How do you come across confident and not cocky?" -Sarah
  • "If we respond negatively to a compliment about ourselves, that might be taking the pressure off." -Brett
  • "Even when you say 'thank you,' that translates into 'I know.'" -Sarah
  • "Speak life over yourself, girl!" -Brett

Episode 27: So Fresh and So Clean, Clean

Sometimes we just need a break. 

So, we took one. And we’re back for a fresh start, which is what we’re talking about this week! 

In this episode:

  • We talk about why we are believers in fresh starts, where we struggle with them, why they help us form a new perspective, the benefits of them and more!
  • We also chat about the “big” fresh starts like moving or starting a new job, role in life, etc. 
  • And in typical PSP fashion, we walk down memory lane to discuss the greatness of Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC. We even break for a listen to "Gone."
  • We reference this podcast episode about the five-second rule.


That’s what she said:

  • “It kind of smells like fresh fart.” -Brett
  • “Being pregnant is like being hungover from a party you weren’t invited to.” -Brett
  • “[Life] can get pretty boring if you’re not actively engaging in the world around you and I think having fresh starts opens your eyes to possibilities around you and opens up your creativity and expands things that you care about and helps you identify things in the world that need to be changed…” -Brett
  • “I think it gives you ample space to reflect on how far you’ve come, too. It’s easy to get bogged down in the every day and forget what your accomplishments are or maybe how much progressive you have made…” -Sarah
  • “I think sometimes you should still live in the past with your boy bands.” -Sarah
  • “We think they’re going to fix our problems, when in fact, our problems follow us around.” -Brett
