Hey! My name is Sydney Weiss and I'm the creator, host, producer and joy seeker behind Seek The Joy Podcast.
Seek The Joy Podcast is an idea I dreamt up in September 2017 while I was waiting for California Bar Results. It was the second time I sat for the exam (p.s. I passed! Hallelujah!) and I was sitting in my apartment reflecting on the last year. The woman I saw in the mirror staring back at me was different. She was calmer, kinder to herself, and happier. She was no longer the panicked negative self-talker she was a year ago.
I should probably rewind a little bit. In 2016 I had a slew of health issues - from shingles to appendicitis - and when you couple that with graduating from law school and sitting for the CA bar exam, and not passing, I was a mess. Okay - maybe that's a little harsh (or a lot harsh!) but I just didn’t feel like me anymore. When I found out I didn't pass the bar exam in November 2016 the negative self-talk I’ve carried with me throughout my life got worse. I was in a space of shame, anger, and embarrassment, and months of not listening to my body, running myself ragged, and being down right mean to myself took its toll.
I could go into more detail about what that year was like, and what brought me here, but in true podcaster fashion I'm going to include the link here to listen to my episode, The Comeback Kid where I break it all down (it's one of my favs, so definitely check it out!)
While staring at myself in the mirror in September 2017, I remember experiencing this moment of insane inspiration. I knew I wanted to start a conversation and create a way to connect with others who had similar stories and experiences. I wanted to build a community and a space to share personal stories, explore our joy, and learn and grow through stepping into our vulnerability, courage, and reconnecting to our authentic voice.
On Seek The Joy Podcast we're opening the door to what's possible
Our Motto: Be Love. Seek Joy. Follow The Light Within.
When I started Seek The Joy I had no idea what it would evolve into. Seriously! I'm going to be completely honest when I say I wasn't sure anyone would even listen. As a kid who grew up with a pretty strong lisp and embarrassed by my own voice, I never imagined that at 26 years-old I would take the biggest leap of faith, exercise my own trust muscles, and start my own podcast. This has been an incredible journey and truly transformative - mind, body, and soul. Seek The Joy is really just getting started and I'm so excited to continue this journey of connection, love, and joy.
This podcast is evolving exactly what I dreamed it would - a discussion and a conversation about who we really are and what we came here to do. Through authentic conversations and reconnecting to our light and authentic joy (something I like to call our joy blueprint!) - we're showing up for ourselves and really seeking our joy.
I’d love to get to know you! Come hang out and join our community by connecting with us on Instagram or Facebook. Thank you for joining me on this journey home to our joy, connection, and that light within that is just dying for us to tune back into it and let it shine!
With love, joy and a whole of gratitude.
