Continuing my work to get more and more women's recovery stories out there - que Lisa.  She is amazing. I was truly inspired by her compassion and empathy towards those she encountered on her road to recovery.  I am honored to bring her story to you.  Remember, when we share our story or hear the stories of others, a new piece in our own life heals.  That was definitely the case with Lisa.  I'm forever grateful for her willingness to share so much with us!

2020 was not my best year.  While I learned a lot and had some great opportunities and wins, there were many things that didn't happen.  I'm calling it the year of false starts.  It took a toll on me and on Worth Recovery. However, I'm doing the work to change that.  In this episode I discuss how shame and guilt have kept me frozen and not moving forward and how learning to love myself through the process has been the most rewarding.  

What an amazing opportunity to have Kristal Garcia on the podcast! I was inspired by her radical self-love and forgiveness. I was challenged by her confidence and boldness. I was changed by her story.  Every time I hear the story of another woman, a little piece of my heart heals. That was definitely the case here.

Emotions.  They are beautiful and make us human AND they are difficult and can make us fearful.  In this episode I share with you a recent problem I had with tending to my own emotions.  I hope you take some time today and tend to your emotions.  

I love having guests on the podcast. I love it even more when they are women sharing their own recovery journey.  Rosario is a brave young woman sharing her battle with sex and love addiction.  She discusses her struggle with religion and relationships.  She shares how bad it got and what made it better.  She talks about how self-compassion is the way she started to find healing and what her recovery looks like today.  

I'm on a journey to share as many women's stories as I can during the rest of 2020!  Do you want to share your story?  It doesn't matter where you are in your recovery journey - at the beginning or many years in - your story is important and can make a huge difference for people.  I'd love to have you on the podcast!  Reach out!  amy@worthrecovery.com and let's make it happen!

Connection is such a necessary part of life. Yet, for so many reasons it feels scary and unsafe. With everything else going on the world right now - pandemics, civil unrest, social distancing, protests, etc. - connection is every more essential than ever.

There is a whole lot going on right now.  As we grasp for information we don't have a whole lot of expectations are being put on us and how we should be responding to this pandemic.  Truth is we're living in unprecedented times.  Times that have never before been experienced by anyone currently alive.  It's important, now more than ever, that we truly understand ourselves, our position, and our pace.  I burnt out quickly the first few weeks of quarantine and was a mess by week 3.  In this episode, I share some of the thinking that helped me pull myself together again.  I hope it's helpful for you.  And a reminder:  Always stay kind.

Free Fall is an opportunity to reorganize your life really quickly. In a matter of moments/days/weeks things can look really different.  At least it has the potential to.  But we must look at falling with intentionality and not fear. In this episode I share one of my first moments of free fall when I got laid off from a job in 2015 and the impact that had on my life.  There was an exercise I did that helped me to be intentional about what I let fall into my life and what I let fall out of my life.  I hope it is as helpful for you as it was for me.
