‘The Key is in the Complaints: I am Enough,’ with ABC broadcaster, Sheridan Stewart.

Jun 5, 2023

In episode #86, Mel and Trish sit down with writer, speaker, and ABC broadcaster Sheridan Stewart to chat about the recent release of her book I Am Enough and the impetus behind its conception. 

Sheridan Stewart had been struggling with burnout for years but couldn’t find a way to break the cycle of rushing about feeling guilty for spending and eating too much as well as not being a good enough wife, mother, friend and so on. Verbalising her complaints to her husband, he suggested she go back three months to look at where she spent her money, how she spent her time and why she was always rushing. This suggestion led Sheridan on a quest to prioritise calm, selfcare and what really matters in life. She set herself a 90-day challenge to spend less and this experience made her contemplate what it means to have enough, do enough and ultimately be enough. It also inspired her to write about her experience. The challenge wasn’t just about how she spent her money either, but how she spent her time and the affect a lack of work boundaries was having on her life.

Sheridan wants to inspire others to follow her lead and take the challenge. She has created a simple, do-it-yourself way to spend less and have more. Importantly though, its tailored to the individual – your challenge, your rules.

As Sheridan says, “Funnily enough, it all began with complaints, so the key was in the complaints.” 

Enjoy the very engaging and well-spoken Sheridan Stewart.
