As a first-generation Filipinx-American, I was raised to believe that when things get hard, you push through, pull yourself up by your bootstraps, get tough and work harder. So when I first heard of self-compassion, I thought it was just for people that didn't know what “real” suffering was like.
Special Replay - Define Your Freedom
This week’s podcast is a SPECIAL REPLAY of Episode 21: Define Your Freedom. Why? Because these days, not only does this topic seem to pop up more than before, but it’s also more important than ever for us all to get clear on what that is!
For me, these past couple days gave me an excellent moment to slow down, take care of myself, and practice some serious self-love… and some birthday celebration time with my sweet daughter.
My own definitions of freedom were key to this real-life practice, so I wanted to re-share this popular and super relevant podcast with you again, so you can do the same!
When Someone You Love Has a Mental Illness
This week is about cultivating practices that help us come to these challenges with more love, compassion + wisdom.
Because everyone deserves that. And I believe we all want to show up for the people we love from a place of integrity.
When Fear is a Good Thing
In 2012, my husband and I took a cargo boat, which was way overloaded and inches from taking on water, for 3 days on the Niger river to Timbuktu. It was the most amazing adventure.
If you look at the photo for this podcast (taken in the Sahara), we look so in love - but what’s not apparent is that we are fleeing a Touareg takeover in Timbuktu and driving across the Sahara to escape. We stopped once to pee (and took this photo). And we weren’t even supposed to do that!
How to Let Go of Regret
This podcast has changed my life! Ana has helped me get in line and stay in line with my own goals and values.
My mom shared this podcast with me while I was going through my divorce. Every single episode brings me some sort of tear-jerking self-realization. I have since shared it with my best friend.
Thank you, Ana, for this amazing and valuable podcast.
Permission to heal and love myself
I found this podcast when I really needed a voice to pull me up and give me hope. I’ve listened to them at least twice and look forward to Freedom School opening up again. I have sent this to three friends and they all thanked me. Thank you Ana- I am a work in progress in the infancy stage and need you, your knowledge and insight to become free and live a truly abundant life!!
Ana Verzone invites us to take on our important work despite the discomfort of our emotions. This podcast is worth listening to, and then listening again. It's easier NOT to examine our thoughts, but we get stuck in inaction if we don't examine our thoughts and emotions.
Inspiring, insightful, helpful.
