Where we walk away feeling hopeless, sad, and worthless! It is so easy to step into unhealthy mindsets and beat ourselves up. The lies and certain situations can devastate us! 

Tune in as I give practical tools to begin applying the change to different areas of your life:  Activities, Social Support, a Grateful Journal, Mindfulness, and even a spiritual component as ammunition.  It’s time to get out of the pit, and remember you are here and alive because God has a plan for you!

EP 18  “What Vulnerability is and Why It is Good for Us, Time to Drop the Guard of your Palace!!”

EP 18 “What Vulnerability is and Why It is Good for Us, Time to Drop the Guard of your Palace!!”

July 16, 2021

Welcome to Episode 18

EP 18 “What vulnerability is, and why it’s good for us, it’s time to drop your guard, ladies, and gentlemen.”

There I was peeking in a spinning class and decided that I may give it a try!  After watching how all the “fit” people came in immediately, my palms got sweaty, and I had anxiety and thought to myself, “Why in the world did I ever think I could do this”? I am not fit to be here! Ha! Guess what I was brave and faced that giant and cycled away that day! 

How hard is it for you to be vulnerable? To place yourself in situations that make you feel uncomfortable, have you ever asked why I am uncomfortable? It’s time to get to know the why behind it!

In today’s episode, I share some of the “why” we have a problem with being vulnerable and how it can be good for us. Do you know that a lot of times, we resist being weak due to our life experiences? 

Tune in as I share how our hearts never heal and will always remain hardened and guarded until you decide to drop your guard! It’s time to say to that guard of your palace, “YOUR FIRED”!  Healthy things will only come your way when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable. 

I share tips on how to begin to become aware and step out and be brave! #doitafraid has always been my motto! 

As Brene Brown would say, “Vulnerability is not a weakness; it's our most significant measure of courage.”

Welcome to Episode 17

EP 17- “Without Action, the Story Never Changes”

Have you ever gathered around to watch someone do something exhilarating or something you would never dare to do?

It is one thing for you to want, dream, and desire something; it’s another thing actually to do it! 

It’s time to talk about activating A.H.A.‘s in your life.

A-Awakening

H-Honest Talk

A- Action

Sadly there are areas in our lives we need to bring change, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to change! 

I hit on some warning signs that keep you from getting up and remain stuck!

Fatigue/Frustration

Tension in Relationships

Undirected Anger

These are some of the things that we remain stuck with. Remember, your convictions are not worth anything until there is action!

 

So I want to ask you:

When are you going to get up? Remember, without action, the story never changes in your life!

Tune in today as I share some of my own life experiences of how stuck, frustrated and angry I was in different areas of my life and for so many years of my life.

EP- 12 Matters of the Heart

EP- 12 Matters of the Heart

June 1, 2021

Welcome to Episode 12, "Matters of the Heart" 

A lot of times, we are pretty good about monitoring our behaviors, thoughts, and actions.   Do you ever wonder why we do certain things or act a certain way, wondering why I said or did that?

We are not good about monitoring our hearts, which can be complicated because everything we do stems from our hearts.   Out of the abundance of our hearts, the mouths speak. 

Our hearts are like a simmering volcano of things taking place in our lives, unaware of what is genuinely taking place in our hearts.  At times what you do not know CAN hurt you!

 

This episode aims to help you become aware of the secrets in our hearts; in case you were not aware, those things always come out and find their way into our homes, lives, workplaces, and relationships. Reflecting on your recent thoughts, words, and actions reveals what is going on in your heart.

Be sure to tune in to this episode as I discuss different areas where we can be like that simmering volcano.
