Emily was one of the first bloggers I really connected with back in 2014. We’ve met a couple times in New York, Tampa and most recently Philly. What attracted me first to Emily’s blog is her amazing writing and ability to distill such relatable truths.

She’s someone who shares her thoughts in such a relatable valuable way without making everything a listicle or waiting until life has happened to wrap up some lessons in a bow.


This episode is all about life after college. The ups the downs and how to navigate between what you really want versus what the world is telling you you’re supposed to be doing.

x Why life transitions are hard

x When to tell your friends you have a blog

x The job hunt - why does it have to be so hard?!

x Identifying the “shoulds” in your life (and slowly getting rid of them)

x Why social media often adds to the “shoulds”

x Practical tips for practicing mindfulness and presence

x Why rest is totally underrated

x What it’s really like to live at home after college

x Emily’s running story

x Why hard times don’t last
