Ep 101. Self Compassion vs. Self Pity

After working with hundreds of women on improving themselves and their lives I find that there is a lot of confusion about self compassion and self pity. Self pity keeps you stuck and is extremely disempowering and generally leaves us overwhelmed and hopeless. Self compassion on the other hand gets us moving in the right direction, brings us out of hiding and helps us redirect in a useful way. Today I am going to teach you the difference so that you can recognize it in yourself and stay on the path of compassion. Are you ready? Click play and let’s do it.

Ep 100. 100 Things to Love About You

Did you know that when you take some time to retrain your brain to think loving, kind, compassionate thoughts about yourself, you end up thinking about yourself less often?

There is an exercise I have my clients do where they make a list of things they appreciate about themselves and many of them have a hard time coming up with more than 10 or so. Today I’m sharing with you my list to give you some ideas and get your brain thinking. Then, you know what to do… make your own list my friend. As a bonus you’ll get to hear me say the alphabet backwards. You’re welcome.
