    Ep. 127: YOU MATTER a poem and WISDOM! from Darryl Dzapasi

    Ep. 127: YOU MATTER a poem and WISDOM! from Darryl Dzapasi

    Today I’m sharing with you what might be one of my favorite episodes ever! My new friend and phenomenal poet Darryl Dzpasi is here to share his poem called YOU MATTER. Darryl wrote this poem after learning about the tragic death of George Floyd--he wrote it as a message for himself and the world around him. Darryl beautifully reads his poem (grab your tissues), and then generously talks to me about the experiences of his life that contributed to writing it. I also have Darryl tell me how he got to be so WISE and DEEP! You’ll get actionable takeaways for self-love, compassion, and navigating difficult emotions, as well as deep insight and perspective from Darryl’s unique experiences, which I know is so needed right now. I’m so excited to share this with you!

    Today I simply want to entertain you and give you a break! So I’m sharing two of my favorite, only slightly traumatic childhood memories! You’ll laugh (maybe not as hard as Eric does…) you’ll possibly cry, but mostly I hope you just get a chance to connect with me, and most importantly connect with yourself.

You are enough

I had the choice to walk away from, or reclaim my marriage right before the pandemic hit. When the cards you were dealt are taken away and a new hand is dealt, it’s so difficult to play. I chose to fight for our future, our family and have been devouring everything I can that is beneficial for growth and healing. Cling to what is good. Your podcast is good. In this storm we’re in, we all need to know we are enough, right now, this minute. Thank you Alison and Eric for creating content that people are thirsty for. My husband thought I would walk out the door, but I looked him in the eyes and said, Satan doesn’t get to have you, or this family. We’ve been through some therapy and after watching a bazillion YouTube videos, studying and reading books about attachment trauma and reconciliation, we’re now listening to your show (I found it and it’s like listening to my bestie so I send them to him). Our lives are going to be whatever we make it. We’ve made the choice to renew our vows. Thanks for helping me remember I’m awesome and I get to make this life awesome, even in the face of uncertainty. ❤️💪

HOW THE HECK IS THIS REAL LIFE?!

There’s nothing I look forward to more than hearing Alison (and Eric too)! Not only does she bring INCREDIBLE people on the podcast, she makes you FEEL! Isn’t that amazing? She makes you feel real, raw, and enough. She helps you find the toy you’ve been looking for in cereal boxes for years. She helps you uncover what you need each week. I LOVE HER! You can also feel that she puts her heart and soul into making this podcast so meaningful and purposeful. What are you doing if you’re not listening to this podcast? MY HEART IS AWESOME BECAUSE OF AWESOME WITH ALISON!!!
