    Suffering Consciously

    Suffering Consciously

    Are you suffering right now? I want to talk about this because it's been top of mind as I look out into the world. Civil unrest, racial divide, a pandemic that's costing hundreds of thousands of deaths. Jobs lost, families fearing eviction, schools out, kids home, loved one's dying or being sick, and there's not much we can do about it. I've struggled the last few months and many times have felt lost. Not knowing where I'm going or what I'm doing. In this episode, I am talking about what it is that we can learn from this situation and how we can do what is called Suffering Consciously.

    (Q&A) How Do You Feel About People Using The R Word?

    (Q&A) How Do You Feel About People Using The R Word?

    On this Q&A episode of the podcast, I am responding to a question I got on Instagram that was really really good! It's all about how offended we are when we hear the R word. In the special needs arena, that is very hurtful. I have a lot of thoughts about this because it's something I’ve struggled with over the last few years, and I’ve finally come to a certain peace with it. I want to share that because we need to talk about things like this and how the world views our kids or how they throw around hurtful or offensive words. We have to process through all the feelings that come with that because it's inevitable. It's all around us. So, I hope you will get a lot out of this and I would love to hear your thoughts on this as well. DM me or email me because I feel like this is a topic that we have to come together and talk about!

    In this episode, it's going to be a little different. I have had the idea of adding a second episode a week. I get a lot of questions from people, a lot of questions that are really good and important to me and to the special needs community, so I really want to discuss them with all of you. In this episode, and for future Q&A's, I am just going to answer questions. YOUR questions. Please let me know if this is something you enjoy and if you have anything you'd like to ask me, DM me on Instagram or Email me!

    How to Get to a Place of Acceptance - with Jody Warshawsky

    How to Get to a Place of Acceptance - with Jody Warshawsky

    Today we are talking about acceptance. It is my biggest dream for every parent that has a child with special needs because what you can do with acceptance can change the world. You cannot be the best, most effective, and most loving parent until you get to this phase. The journey is you discovering what that purpose is. And I believe that your child was put here to transform the world and bring a new consciousness to our planet. But it starts with you. It starts with the mama.  And that is what I am here to talk about.

    Depression and Feeling Hopeless - with Jody Warshawsky

    Depression and Feeling Hopeless - with Jody Warshawsky

    When my daughter Remy was diagnosed with autism, I had ALL the feels. I struggled and I felt alone. I didn’t know how I was going to be the kind of mother that Remy needed, and I didn't understand why she had special needs. How could God do this to a child? Why did God choose me? What did I do to deserve this? But I had SUCH a radical transformation when I was able to go through truly grieving the child I thought I was going to have. It was such a hard thing to do, but I'm really happy and proud because I am in such a better place now. Yet, it wasn't always like that. In this episode, I am re-sharing about my experience with the stage of depression, how I was able to process my emotions and fears, and ultimately accept my daughter.

    I'll Do Anything to Change My Child's Diagnosis - with Jody Warshawsky

    I'll Do Anything to Change My Child's Diagnosis - with Jody Warshawsky

    Today’s topic is ALL about bargaining. The word bargaining is confusing for a lot of people, and whenever we talk about the stages of grief, we don't even know what it really is and want to move on to the “better” stages, because who needs bargaining? But it's one that will actually keep us stuck the longest. I don't think we even realize we are doing it. So, in today’s podcast, you'll learn all about what bargaining is and what it isn't, and why it's the foundation for getting to that place of acceptance.

So very real

Thank you for such an honest and real podcast about what we SpEd parents go through. Hearing what you have to say helps us all realize that we are not alone.

Someone that feels like me and not feel bad about it

My 5 year old daughter is autistic and I’ve known since she was 8 months old. In the beginning my family and friends dismissed my concerns. I’ve felt so alone, guilty, angry, and resentful - helpless. Jody’s podcast has completely touched my heart and jolted my negativity and depression BACK into being a great mom for my daughter instead of focusing on the negative, I’ve been re-training my brain and focusing on the positive. I need to be 1000% so I can be 2000% for my daughter. This podcast has helped me SO much.
