EP235: Gratitude, Simplicity, and Control with Julie Santiago
Today we have Julie Santiago with us and she had two BIG TRUTHS to share with us.
The first she called universal, “We all know who we are and what we want.”
The second she called personal, “I want my life to be super simple.”
So we dove into both. Specifically:
-How she is simplifying
-The paradox of control – we have so much control and so much is out of our control
-The drive to be known, to know ourselves, and to be understood
-Being complete without kids
-Navigating personal growth while being in a long term relationship when your partner isn’t necessarily on the same path you are
She also shared what it was like growing up in Louisiana in a Lebanese family. This is a really juicy one that took a lot of twists and turns. Enjoy!
