Stop Wasting Time Feeling Bad

Ep. 7

The start of a new and beautiful day finds me appreciating the sun touching my face; I feel stronger and lighter than in the past six weeks. Something changed in me, and as I think about it, I can hear a voice in my head repeating a mantra: stop wasting time feeling bad, use that time to learn how to feel good. 


In this episode, we will talk about our relationships and their influence on our grieving process. We will discuss how essential it is for our growth to learn when to take a step back or get away from certain relationships. We will go through some questions we should ask ourselves to help us grow with grief. Finally, I will share five offerings you can do if you are grieving.

Grief is a Powerful Catalyst for Healing Grief

Ep. 58
We know grief can take us to several places; some are filled with pain and loneliness, others can make us grow and evolve, and some might lead us to connect with other souls walking a similar path. We recognize grief's effects but sometimes forget its practical use. We forget we can use grief as a tool; we forget it's up to us to grab it and use it to heal. In this episode, inspired by a conversation with a webinar colleague and friend, we explore grief's applicability, unravel grief's healing properties, and learn how it can be a catalyst for healing grief. Together, we question why we let ourselves be dragged into past traumatic or painful experiences and decide to sink and stay in that pain.We also examine our own grief; what is it that we are really grieving? Is it a previous version of ourselves, perhaps an idealized future version that never came to fruition? Tune in, and let's find out the answers to these questions together. In This Episode, You Will Learn:About the things that we already know but might change our mindset if we look at them differently (2:19)What or who is it that we are really grieving for?

Do you know what to do when you are not okay? Let's find out.In this episode, we talk about those moments when we struggle to feel like ourselves, when sadness takes over, and our mind insists on returning to old thoughts, hurting feelings, and sad memories. We address some of the most common responses to this feeling and explore examples of how NOT to deal with it. In addition, I share three simple yet powerful ways of becoming YOU again.
