What are you willing to be in pain for?


This week, we are asking ourselves what we are willing to be in pain for, rather than what would make us happy. We’re also sharing some practical tips for incorporating eco-friendly habits into daily life.

But first, we wanted to say thank you again for all the lovely reviews you all have left for us on iTunes. If you haven't had a chance to leave one yet, scroll to the bottom of the page for instructions! 

What you’ll hear:

  • Maggie share some things she learned while living with Jacey
  • A discussion of small daily risks versus large dramatic ones
  • Our thoughts on the value of struggle
  • Whether just wanting something is enough
  • Some practical tips for living a more eco-friendly life

Can I quote you on that?

  • “That’s the paradox of happiness. In order to attain any sort of happiness you have to go through seasons of unhappiness.” Maggie
  • “Longevity and consistency mean a lot more than we realize.” Jacey
  • “It’s what you accumulate in the small moments of the day to day that equips you for the big picture stuff.” Maggie
  • “Whatever is it you are aiming for, has to outweigh the pain of the struggle to get there.” Jacey
  • “There’s an imbalance with how much we emphasize the reward or the endgame. The reality is that most of the good stuff is what happens in the struggle, in the process, on the way there.” Maggie
  • “I’m willing to struggle just to keep doing it.” Jacey (on writing)
