59-Lauren Abrams Talks About 52 Weeks of Hope and The Imposter Syndrome
Hello and welcome, I'm Shauna Hoffman. I am so excited to welcome today's guest on the podcast. Let me tell you a little bit about Lauren Abrams. She's the founding member and managing partner of the law offices of Lauren Abrams. She has been exclusively protecting the rights of employees for over 22 years. Her heart and her practice is built around protecting the rights of others, but it is her podcast, 52 weeks of hope that brought me to invite her on the show. A weekly podcast, where you hear from thought leaders, activists, elders, and other visionaries who share their journeys through difficulties and uncertainty emerging, knowing that we don't have to do this life thing alone. Now, do you see why I had to have her on the podcast? It's my turn to hear from a visionary and ask her to share her very own journey to awareness. We have so much to explore.

57-Change It Up
Sometimes in our lives, we just need to switch things up to bring back our excitement, enthusiasm, our creativity again. Even our love lives! Yesterday I found myself kind of uninspired.. doing all the usual things with not so much excitement to them. And it became really clear that I needed to switch things up a bit to jumpstart my day. So today, rather than our usual walk to the park with the dogs…same old park, same old walk, we went someplace totally different. A new park! New paths, new trees, new sounds and it was truly a breath of fresh air.
Ready to Change It Up? Let's go...
56-Song Therapy From The Beatles
I talked a little bit about song therapy in a previous podcast. This week I was listening to the Beatles and soaking it up! There is something about singing songs that remind you of your youth. And you know every lyric and guitar riff, and throw away lyrics. The Beatles sang about every emotion I have ever felt! Starting with “She was just 17”. I met my husband Bert when I was 17. It’s like our theme song! My mom sat us in front of the TV to watch the Beatles on Ed Sullivan knowing it was going to be a night to remember!
So I decided that today we are going to have a little Beatles Music Therapy! Then when I’m all done recording this episode I am going to shut the door, turn off the lights, crank up some tunes and dance!
55-Fear or Anxiety? Just Yell Stop!
Today we’re going to talk about fighting through your fears. Sometimes they are real life fears…survival, illness, money, job loss. And sometimes they are perceived fears of the unknown. Like fear of change or all the “what if’s” that we tend to obsess on. Or the big emotional ones like, “what if they don’t love me anymore. I’m not sure I can survive alone”. The word fear is sooooo big and so misunderstood and so confused with other emotions that often finding the tools to fight it off, or handle it or even recognize it becomes such a challenge. So we are going to knock the hell out of what fears look like and how to control it on today’s podcast.
