Callie and Jeff

It all started when…

Shortly after we started dating, Jeff suggested that we write down one thing we were grateful for every day. It only took a few seconds each morning, but we noticed something after just a couple of weeks. We both had an INCREDIBLE shift in our mindsets. Our brains started thinking about the upside and positive of every situation instead of defaulting to the negative.

From that, a remarkable ripple effect of amazing changes in our lives began. We were happier, kinder, and more patient. All because we took a few seconds each day to appreciate something… even something small. We want to share the power of gratitude with as many people as possible, and that’s the mission behind all things Callie and Jeff.

Upside makes my day better

Just listening to the first episode put me in such a great place. Loved hearing the realness in conversation. Bonus: the voices don’t drive you batty because these appear to be their real voices: not fake podcast voices! Thank you two!!

First Time podcast listener

Wow! I usually listen to music during my daily walk but when I heard Jeff (I’m a long time fan/listener) was starting a podcast, I had to give it a try. I absolutely love listening to y’all! Such a breath of fresh air. Thank you Callie and Jeff 🙂
