203: Here’s Why Chasing After Happiness Can Be Burning You Out
Hey Brave Table fam! In today’s episode, we discuss the controversial dangers of seeking external validation – speaking from personal experiences and societal observations. Reflecting on my journey of self-marriage in Bali (read as: my Eat, Pray, Love moment), I learned the importance of prioritizing self-love. From the impact of social media detox to the pitfalls of chasing external validation, I explore the significance of setting boundaries and valuing our worth. We explore how to truly embrace authenticity and self-love, and how to prioritize our well-being over societal pressures. What you’ll get from this episode… Learning about the concept of higher energy and manifesting abundance, contrasting it with scarcity mentality How cultivating a mindset of abundance, rooted in self-love and worthiness, can lead to manifesting positive outcomes in life How taking breaks from social media can lead to heightened awareness of the present moment and deeper connections with oneself and others That true self-love eliminates the need for external validation – when individuals genuinely love themselves, they no longer rely on others to affirm their worth and value.

I was like, ‘Okay, so I might get disowned by my parents because I'm queer, so what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna study really hard, get into a good college, get a good job, make my, like, get a good career, and then make my own money so I can live my own life and love who I want.’” – Angel Trinidad Summary Do you have something you are deeply passionate about yet struggle to share?

188: How to Embrace Change & Commit to a New YOU in 2024 with Alyssa Nobriga Quote: “Really understanding why people don’t change happens to be in the unconscious, so a lot of people think they need more willpower, they need to push harder, but it's really about getting out of our own way.

184: Dealing with loved ones addiction, alcohol abuse, and how to be there for them with Mindy Hofman
Quote: “I learned that being honest and vulnerable, like sitting here talking to you like this, is how you can help people; because hopefully someone's listening.” – Mindy Hofmann Summary:  Do you know someone who has battled addiction, or alcoholism? Well, today we are braving how to support them, and learn from a certain women’s story how change and transformation is possible after hitting rock bottom.    Mindy Hofmann, community leader and podcast host, and I were introduced by a mutual friend. Obviously, we have so much in common! She has had me in her hot seat, but it wasn’t until I had her in mine that I heard her truly dynamic story. Mindy shares her incredible journey from addiction to recovery, offering insights into the darkest moments of her life, how motherhood impacted both her fall and rise, and the transformation that led her to embrace authenticity and serve others.    In this episode we talk about… The distractions of the glamorous life growing up in Hollywood. The hard truth of hitting rock bottom & coming to terms with addiction to alcohol.  The power of healing through creativity, such as the performing arts. The importance of sharing your personal story for yourself and for others. Bio: Mindy Hofman is the founder of Women of Austin and the creator and host of The Women of Austin Podcast. Mindy is also the Vice President of the new Women of Austin Foundation, helping to support women in the community. She is a self-proclaimed women’s rights champion and strongly believes in the transformative power of women supporting women. Mindy and her family moved to Austin, TX in 2017, where she faced important life decisions involving her going to rehab and getting a divorce. In the divorce, she lost her business and had to start over. While it was the hardest thing she ever did, it was the best thing that ever happened to her.  After some time and soul searching, Mindy realized that she had to follow her heart and find a way to bring women together to share their stories and create community, connection, and collaboration. So, after months of planning and encouragement from her friends, she created Women of Austin and the Women of Austin Podcast.   Connect with Mindy: Follow her on Instagram @mindy.hofman.
