Hello Beautiful Black Woman, Let's talk a smidge about legalism and how the pressure or influence to do everything by the book is what prevents you from allowing yourself grace. Write this quote down in your journal or stick it on your wall with a post-it:  "Allow grace - not legalism - to be the foundation for your practice (Peter Scazzero).

Hey, hey!! In this episode of the podcast I'm in conversation with connector and story teller Brie Penermon, Founder of FitBeads, who ethically sources and offers waistbeads that foster self-love, body-love and culture for women.

Hey, girl, hey!  Recently, right as I was hopping off of an Instagram Live a young lady asked me about self-soothing.  I wasn't able to discuss it then, so thought the podcast would be an excellent place to provide some insight. In this episode I talk about what self-soothing is, why I feel that it in some cases it's a band-aid fix (but definitely a tool for our self-care tool kits) and also some ways to do it to bring down stress levels and anxiety.

In this episode I'm sharing five things that I wish I knew years ago when I battled depression.  The Mayo Clinic defines depression as a mood disorder that that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.   Causes of depression include abuse, serious illnesses, personal problems and even genes with women being twice as likely as men to be depressed. (WebMD) According to Hopkins Medicine, approximately 26% of Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.  That is about 1 out of every 4 adults.   My hope is that this episode, and my story, help you or someone you know to understand that if you've ever experienced depression, anxiety, sadness or uncertainty, you are not alone.

Hey, Hey!

His work has been featured in Cosmopolitan, HuffPost, NBC LX, PopSugar Ask.Men, Bustle, PscyhCentral and other national publications. He has also consulted on mental health for several fortune 500 companies. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Houston, where his research focused on relationship satisfaction in Black and minority families. Today, Nic and I are talking about self-care as it relates to issues including: Survival mode Managing tension in relationships where we are the primary caregiver The importance of not overcompensating in relationships How to better communicate with your partner in healthier ways so that we aren't sending/reading the dreaded "we need to talk" text message You can find Nic here: Instagram -> https://www.instagram.com/nichardy_/ Website to book a session -> https://www.nichardy.com/ Twitter -> https://www.twitter.com/nichardycs If you know that it's your season to take your self-care to the next level, be sure to join my private community on Patreon -> https://www.patreon.com/BrownGirlSelfCare
I used to believe that self-care (specifically through self-help and personal development) was a cure for how broken, unworthy and damaged I believed myself to be.  I was addicted to any and everything self-help but would never take the time to implement anything I learned. If this sounds like you, I want you to know that you aren't broken.  Listen to todays episode and let me know if you can relate to my personal share this week.

How can you begin to embody what it means to take up space?  As a Black woman who worked in corporate America I can tell you that there were many, many times that I bit my tongue or hid my brilliance and based on conversations I've had, I am not the only one. How do we embrace our value and begin to take up the space we rightfully deserve?  Today I'm sharing three specific ways: 1. Honor your value 2. Own your words 3. Fill the space with your presence Also, a bonus one is that everything we do doesn't warrant an apology (like I used to believe).

I love that you addressed this. I, too, struggle with the idea of "manifestation" and even the popularity of "affirmations." I decided to write out affirmations for myself that are rooted in faith and love how I feel empowered reading them...empowered by the strength of Christ in me.
