104. From Pregnant and Abandoned to Single Mom and Empowered
Let’s be honest. Most of us would find it inexplicably painful to go back to those times when we were abandoned by someone important. Needless to say that if it happened when you were carrying a little life inside you, it would seem like an eternity pushing through the days!
I know it, and I’ve been there. But let me tell you this. I could snap the pain after a few empowering sips of reality -- I realized that being abandoned also meant I had the GIFT of freedom. I could keep negative emotions away from mine and my child’s life. Isn’t it much better off feeling alone than stuck or unsafe?
In today’s episode, I share with you how I overcame the pain of abandonment during and after the first few months of my pregnancy. Him leaving us wasn’t abandonment; it was true liberation. I felt at ease with his decisions and am at a better place with my emotions and health today.
Here are some valuable points for all single mothers out there listening:
Life becomes fulfilling the moment you empower yourself to do your best at anything you put your mind to.
Choose to step back from anything that causes hurt in the long term - weed out negative people and thoughts the best you can.
The moment you walk away from a potentially toxic relationship, you don’t just give yourself and your children freedom, but you also protect them from unhealthy experiences.
Empower yourself to head closer to your self-love legacy today. :)

102. 7 Mind shifts to achieve a Deeper Self Love
Episode 102: 7 Mind shifts to Achieve a Deeper Self-Love
It's easy to get caught up in the idea that self-care practices are the final word when it comes to loving yourself. Though adopting habits that nurture and support our wellness does help in feeling more connected to ourselves, self-love is MUCH deeper. It comes from within when you learn to embrace the shadows of your personality.
It takes a lot of work and energy to love yourself, especially if you have been through trauma or abuse during your childhood. Self-love is hard-earned. And today, I will show you how to do that right. In this episode, you'll learn the seven keys to deeper self-love.
Seven things to understand for deeper self-love:
● You need to be your first priority. Our society has conditioned us to believe that self-love is selfish. It's not. It's not selfish to make yourself a priority. Set your boundaries, even if it means you have to miss out on doing things for others sometimes.
● Be kind to yourself in your everyday activities. It is easy to be critical and blame yourself for any mishap or shortcomings. Sit back and think objectively about a situation; give yourself compassion and kindness in those times.
● Gift yourself your love. When you love yourself deeply, you set the standard for receiving love. You love others better. That is because your love will not come from a place of insecurity, hate, anger, or resentment. You can just truly open your arms and love.
● Understand that self-love will not happen overnight. In the same way that it takes time to build a relationship with your significant other or someone outside of your family, it takes time to be comfortable with yourself to love yourself ultimately.
● Know that doing the hard work can get hard. Previous traumas and hurt may resurface. You might learn new behaviors—practice self-care better to overcome the challenges faced. Find yourself a good therapist, if needed. You may even discover those parts of you that are emotional, painful, or challenging.
● Understand that self-love might not always be fun. It might mean you have to go to bed early, miss some birthday parties, or prioritize some things over
others. It might not always be fun to make yourself a priority and to put your
● Self-love is not linear. There are days when you'll feel pumped and awesome,
and there are some when you might even feel miserable. Understand that the highs and lows are all normal. There's no quick fix for this. Self-love is a rollercoaster!
Let's step into our self-love legacy today.
