Life Goals 2022

Life Goals 2022

2022-05-1744:23

When it comes to our marriage, I would definitely say I’m the big dreamer. I adore a 5-year plan and especially a color-coordinated vision board. But this week’s question gave me pause: “What are some big life goals you want to accomplish?” I think the last two years with the constant worry and fear of the pandemic, politics, and world news, I feel some goal-setting burnout. Don’t get me wrong, I still get really excited about being creative and the work we do every day. I’m just scared to verbalize big dreams that may not be able to come to fruition.Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Penn and I have learned to be understanding of how each other’s brains work. He gives me grace when I need to get things in order and I try my best to give him patience when I close the cabinet doors for the 5th time. On this week’s podcast, we interviewed the women who turned organizing in rainbow order into an entire brand. Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin are creators of The Home Edit and stars of the hit Netflix series, Get Organized with The Home Edit. THEY EVEN INSPIRED PENN TO GET ORGANIZED. (I know, I know.)

As many of you know, we talk openly around here about mental health and the specific challenges we deal with in our own lives. We’ve written songs, podcasts, and blogs about these topics, and one of the most common questions we get from you guys about this is “how do I help my kid who struggles with these issues?” If you were following along last week, we introduced a new podcast format we are trying out with segments, so we took all of your feedback for our question of the week which is: “How do I help my disorganized kid get through the week?”  We phoned a friend, Dr. Norrine Russell, and asked her professional advice on this. Dr. Russell is an Executive Functioning & ADHD Coaching Expert who coaches kids at one of the largest international student coaching practices in the world. She is passionate about providing support to frustrated parents and their misunderstood children. Our hearts were both more calm after talking to Dr. Russell. She walked us through some great tips on how parents can better support children who think atypically. She also reminded us that we could be more chill.

Making More Joy

Making More Joy

2022-04-2647:261

Our podcast is our favorite thing we do. It’s like a built in day-date every week where we get to sit down and chat together for an hour. Sometimes we chat about serious topics between ourselves or other times we invite a special guest to teach us something. It really brings us a lot of joy. With the world continuing to be so serious, we’ve found ourselves seeking out things that bring us joy and levity. We want to look for the “extra” in the ordinary everyday. We thought maybe all of you out there might be feeling the same way, so we are testing out a new format on our podcast this week to hopefully create a little bit more joy to spread around. Please tell us what you think of our segments (and Penn's segments songs!)Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

We're In A Slump

We're In A Slump

2022-04-1237:30

I feel very fortunate to have had our careers and health for the past two years, but I have been in an emotional slump. I'm fighting mine by amping up my extrovert time (shocker I know) but I am determined to push past this slump. Penn has been in a recent slump with his tennis hobby. He realized he has been putting more emphasis on his athletic performance instead of just having fun.Penn and I discuss how to know when a hobby isn’t serving us in good ways. Also we discuss the first stop on my hobby hunting journey... Tai Chi! What ways do you overcome slumps?

Now that The Amazing Race has concluded, Penn and I have been interviewing as many of our co-contestants as possible. To wrap up these bonus podcast episodes, we brought in fan-favorite and host of The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan! Phil gave his behind-the-scenes take on what it’s like to be on the other side of the mat each week.As one of the Producers of the show, Phil has been there through all 33 seasons to see each of the contestants and challenges play out. We asked Phil who he predicted to win at the beginning of the season (Newsflash, it wasn’t us!) Listen in to hear Phil’s answer on how he thought we’d do in the race and his answer to some of your other burning questions! You can also watch our interview on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUld3nzE4S4&feature=emb_title Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Growing up there were the beliefs we hung our hats on before we were old enough to know better. Recently, I wrote a blog post about these past ideals (even ones that I've said to my own kids) that I'm trying to unravel now. We've all had missteps that have made us who we are today, but it's good to know when those idioms aren't serving us. You all came in HOT with some contributions to my list so we talk about yours too! Also... Penn explains lottery number science. So there's that.

My birthday was this past weekend, and it got me thinking about goal setting and aging. Usually, I am a very goal oriented person. However, with the world so out of sorts in the past two years, I haven’t really spent time thinking about achieving new things. Even though I'm in my mid-40’s, I still feel young. I also see many people in our lives getting older and I know I'm not (that) far behind. This week, I came up with a list of three ways to hopefully help me make the most of my life now and in the future. (Penn shares his own ultimate goal, which will come as no surprise.) So far, finding a new hobby is the most challenging goal on my list. I need some help, friends, what hobby ideas do you have for me?Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

It goes without saying that The Amazing Race pushed me out of my comfort zone. Never in a million years would I go bungee jumping off the highest jump in Europe, or climb a thousand stairs, or EAT. MAGGOT. CHEESE. Also when, as a middle-aged parents living in North Carolina, would we have the chance to hang out with twin radio DJs from New Jersey? We wanted you to have the chance to meet Lulu and Lala on our podcast. We talk about their dynamic way of twin-speak, how they worked their way to the top of the radio world, and their fascinating dating life. We hope you love them as much as we do :) Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

Penn and I are recovering from a busy couple of weeks, so we wanted to go back to basics. We asked you to submit any and all questions to us. And let me tell you, you did NOT disappoint. Your questions led to some very interesting discussions about jam stands, hobby hunting, and optimal bedroom size. But the question that made us laugh the most was: "So, what's your deal?" We tried to answer that as honestly as possible, but most days I have no idea what my deal is. Tell us your deal and send us more questions to answer in the future!

While we are “getting back to normal” content in most ways, we will still want to spend some time and introduce you to some of the people we met along the way on our Amazing Race Journey. It’s strange to think about it now, but Cayla Platt and Raquel Moore were the very first people we met on the Race. We didn’t know it then, but almost two years after we met in that airport, we’d be going head to head in a battle to the very end. As much as we loved winning, our hearts broke that they didn’t.  Hear about everything, including the words they told us on the race course that I still use daily. You can watch our recap here.Thank you again for cheering us on every week. As we go into the final episodes, we can’t tell you how much your support has meant to us. Tell us your questions and we will try to answer them in these recaps next week!

In our years together, Penn has done an amazing job making me feel completely loved and accepted just the way I am - anxiety and all. And, in true Penn Holderness fashion, he’s not only learned to support me through my anxiety, but has pointed out positive parts of my anxiety that can actually be a benefit sometimes. Talking about anxiety is really HARD for someone with anxiety, but we put this out there because we really hope that someone can glean helpful information for themselves and/or their partner through our conversation. Don’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

Did we just win The Amazing Race? This week on the podcast recap, we give you more behind-the-scenes about what things were like leading up to and winning the race. We also talk about being with our kids and the cast to watch the finale together. It was a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives.I can’t say enough about the producers and people behind the scenes at The Amazing Race. They had the seemingly impossible task of putting on a race during a pandemic and they kept us all safe. We are also thankful to everyone who stayed with our kids and kept our business running while we went off the grid… twice. But most importantly, we are grateful for the lifelong friends we made with the entire cast of Season 33. It’s a privilege to know them and be part of their lives.

If you’ve been following us here for a while, you know that we both openly talk about our mental health challenges. For Kim, it's anxiety and depression. For Penn, it's ADHD. We’ve written countless songs, skits, and blogs about these struggles. Most recently, Penn wrote a blog about how he processes his ADHD and turns it into his superpower especially through our time on The Amazing Race. Supporting each other's mental health has taken a lot of time and practice. Like sometimes your husband leaves his carry-on suitcase (the only piece of luggage he packed) in the airport and doesn't realize it until we've reached our final destination... not exactly the superpower version of ADHD. This week we talk about what it looks like in our relationship for us to support each other’s mental health. We are going to make this a multi-part series, and today we cover Penn’s ADHD: what that looks like for him, ways he has learned to manage his brain, and how Kim has learned to support him.

All my life I’ve always been a rule follower. I don’t cut corners. I don’t take shortcuts. This week on The Amazing Race my rule following almost got the best of me. In a “needle in the haystack” challenge we had to turn over THOUSANDS of rocks in a coliseum to find a gold coin and get a clue. Despite having a head start, it took hours. It was a task that almost broke me. Hear more about what it was like to be part of this challenge on this week’s podcast recap and [SPOILER ALERT] how we are feeling going into next week. Thank you again for cheering us on every week. As we go into the final episodes, we can’t tell you how much your support has meant to us.

When intimidating headlines like “college admissions scandals” are swirling around, it seems like a perfectly natural reaction to feel overwhelmed and stressed out when applying to college is on the horizon. For us, having a high school aged daughter, the college application process has already been a topic of conversation in our home. We spoke to The College Essay Guy, Ethan Sawyer, and he told us that we can not only make the college admissions less stressful, but we might even have a little fun in the process. Ethan has tons of resources available to help when planning for college applications including tips on writing essays, timelines for the application process, and advice on whether you should test or not. You can learn more about Ethan Sawyer at www.collegeessayguy.com, as well as with the links below:YouTube channelCollege Essay Guy podcastCollege Application Resource HubDon’t forget to call us and leave a message - we might play your question in next week’s episode.

We did it. We survived another leg of The Amazing Race. Besides, “when do you go to the bathroom” the next most commonly asked question is “what do your kids think of all of this?” So when we sat down for this week’s recap of the 9th leg of the Amazing Race, we had some special guests. Lola and PC joined us for the first few minutes of our recap to share their reactions to this week’s episode. They did not hold back. (Kids will keep you humble, man.) One of the things we didn’t expect in such a highly competitive environment, was making such dear friends. I started the night with a glass of wine and a little teary-eyed so our kids thought it wasn’t going to go well for us. Instead I was just feeling especially empathetic for our favorite twins, Lulu and Lala. (We hope to have them on the podcast soon!)

This week we interviewed our Amazing Race friends, Sheri and Akbar Cook. We wanted to bring this to you because they are pretty amazing people and have such an inspiring story to tell. I’m going to tell you now, you’ll want to have some tissues on hand for this episode. If you’re watching this season, Sheri and Akbar had some of my favorite moments of the season despite being eliminated at the end of leg 6. Perhaps you saw Sheri and Akbar snap at each other a few times, but I’m here to tell you they are a loving couple who have been together 23 years. We became good friends with them during our travels and we got to know a whole different side of them than what you saw on TV. We were so humbled by their story of leadership and love, and we wanted them to be able to share about some of the work they have done in their community. Listen in and be inspired!

I’ll admit that even though we’ve lived it, I get anxious watching myself on TV when The Amazing Race is airing. But one of my favorite things has been recording the recaps after the show airs to help process what things you see on screen and the emotions around the day. It feels good to talk about what happened and give context to what was going through our minds. In last night’s episode, we had to eat casu martzu to earn a clue. I’ll save you the google search, it’s cheese made by (and with) real live maggots. (Cool cool cool.) Get the skinny on this cheese and why Penn ended up taking on the roadblock task.

I love you kim. I totally understand what your saying. I have a great marriage and a healthy child, but I am allowed to have depression and anxiety. This episode helped me be so much.

minute 26 - Kim said, “the life of a college athlete is not one i would want” and Penn agreed. i couldn’t disagree more. i was a collegiate tennis player and it was the BEST experience. ive said that so many times to so many people.

Great stuff! I am divorced and wish I knew this years ago! My Ex and I still need to work together through joint custody. Do you guys ever have divorce experts on for those in my situation?

I agree with the virtual learning sentiment. it had Pros and it had Cons. We are definitely for technology. (my husband is a computer programmer.) But my 11yr old son became too dependent on the virtual interactions...partly because the kids on our street their families did not believe in COVID-19, and so they let their kids play with each other, no vaccinations, no precautions - nothing like that. My son stopped playing outside because he was being teased by the other boys, so his world became the online community, which at first was really great, but now I'm seeing that he's going to have a harder time adjusting back to in-person real world when he goes to middle school in the fall. We're going to try and do our best to help him transition back, but uggh!

My grandpa just died in his alzheimers care facility. They saw him declining and were going to let his wife take a covid test and come spend time with him one last time, hold his hand one last time(which was a huge blessing). While she was waiting for the results to come back he passed away in the night. She hasn't been with him since beginning of March. So heart breaking, this month is their 66 anniversary. I feel for you Penn, it's incredibly hard, and that was just my grandpa, I cant imagine it being my parents. Prayers of comfort for you all.

Love Penn's compromise! It was creative & respectful of what Kim wanted. Another idea: Let Penn pick the images w/o obligation to place or glue them down. Big fan of The Holderness Family @KimDHolderness - love your vids & podcasts! <3

This was good! My husband and I have a code word for Mommy Daddy time, and yes we schedule it! For sure, kids are not the #1 priority in our marriage. But every marriage is different, so you gotta find what works for you 💗

How are there no comments? This is the best. I love you guys and have followed you for ages. I was nodding along the whole 38+ minutes. I couldn't agree with you all more. Marriage is hard but you have to make it work for however makes it work for you. Never stop making these. Bump it up to 8 Karen! ❤️

This was a super interesting podcast about analyzing dreams! My reoccurring dream is weird..... I dream that I'm going to the bathroom, usually in a public place, and the stall walls are so low that everyone can see me sitting on the toilet. This dream occurs sometimes every few months and sometimes it can be a few years before I dream it again. I think I first had it as a teenager; I'm in my 30's now. I've had the teeth falling out on and it always freaks me out! I dream about babies a lot too. Like last night, I dreamed that a friend I knew a long time ago was having a baby. I visited her and was about to tell her the my non-drugged delivery was excruciating but her dad cut me off and I changed my word to exhilarating. (what?!) Then I went to the nurses desk, picked up a tiny dark haired baby from off the counter and turned to walk to her room....and then I woke up. I never got to her room.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate this episode and y'all's honesty about it. This was a real eye opener and helpful! One of my favorite speakers says "Facebook is nothing but comparing your B game with everyone else's highlight real". So true. Thanks Holderness fam! I love you guys!!

Just listened to the podcast about Ruby! I have been there!!!! Right where Kim is (Funny, my name is Kim, too!) Have had all the feelings and all of the comments too! I have been too ashamed to even talk about this for the last 10 years because of everyone else's obvious opinions. I was in the "You took this dog on, you are to love her until she dies, no matter what the situation." camp until this happened. We did EVERYTHING! I did all the behavior training, I drove over an hour and a half away 3 times a week for private training, just to "fix" the protective situation, I became a hermit to do everything to "save" her. But I finally had to give up, she was getting MORE protective the more aware I became, she felt she needed to protect MORE. We had a 6 foot fence she hadn't jumped over, simply because she hadn't tried it yet. We had little kids in our neighborhood that she reacted to every time they screamed. I couldn't not protect them, her and my family ALL...THE...TIME anymore. I didn't want her leaving our family to be a traumatic, hurried, hostile affair as she was dragged off to be put down for biting someone. By adopting her out to a specific, "RIGHT" atmosphere with the help of professionals, I was saving my family from trauma as much as possible, saving her life and saving my sanity. YOU GUYS ARE HEROES for talking about this!!!!! You are putting Ruby's love and health ahead of your own hurt. My Sam needed to be an only dog in a house without little kids. She got that and stopped being "on guard" all the time. She could FINALLY relax. We are happier, she is happier, her new mom is happier! THIS SUCKS! but it WILL PASS. Loving her enough to put her in a situation that she won't possibly hurt someone and then get put down, is LOVING HER! PENN AND KIM ARE MY HEROES!!!
